It’s an Atlanta Dip Off!!!

with 2 comments

One of our favorite pre-Thanksgiving Atlanta traditions – the MKTG Dip Off – took place last week in front of another enthusiastic crowd of judges. This year featured a dozen dips from the always-a-crowd-pleaser buffalo chicken dip to an addicting peanut butter cup desert dip.

However, for the 3rd consecutive year the ultimate honor went to Atlanta Boss Man and General Manager Peter Pearce who wowed us with a Carolina Heritage Pork (Addiction) Dip which included foodie-loving ingredients such as Artisanal Cream Cheese and Free Range Sour Cream. Peter’s name will be forever engraved into the official MKTG Dip Off Champions Cup!

Enjoy the pictures from the festivities, and our winners, below!
