Did you know it’s estimated that 8 million pounds of guacamole is consumed during the Super Bowl? With that much green goodness being smashed up, Zupan’s Markets decided to hold a competition this week among its store associates for the best recipe. With 32 different entries the decision was a hard one for store associates, who were the judges. Unique ingredients included pomegranate seeds, bacon and curry. But in the end there could only be one champion per store.
