The winner of Sugar Rush is … the Funnel Cake Truck
Just ahead of The Pitch’s 2016 Sugar Rush, we reported that Funnel Cake Truck owner Michael Bradbury was pulling out all the fried-goodie stops to win the night, having come close two years ago. It worked: Funnel Cake Truck took the contest, edging out serious competition from gelato shop Paciugo (which drew a steady line of eaters all night) and first-time participant Heirloom Bakery & Hearth (which wowed with three desserts full of complex flavors). Bradbury is pictured here with his prize, in a photo he posted to his business’ Facebook page before the powdered sugar had settled. Those of us who spent the evening eating Bradbury’s fried Oreos were far less eager to be photographed afterward.
