Realizing that I wouldn't be able to check out everything, I prioritized and went in search of the four chosen presenters: Vera Roasting, Stuffed Cookies, Banana Samba, and ShotCakes.

Banana Samba is a Brazilian treat made from banana, pure cane sugar, and lime juice, or in the "no sugar added" version just banana and lime juice. I tried the no sugar added version. It's chewy and satisfyingly sweet.
Who could pass up a fresh-baked cupcake with ice cream inside? ShotCakes takes "cake and ice cream" to a new level. I tried a "Birthday Cake" one and I hereby give it my seal of approval.
Maca-Nut tasted much like other chocolate peanut butters that I've tasted but with a little more depth and a smoother, more robust mouth feel. The essential ingredient in Maca-Nut is Peruvian maca flavored with 100% cocoa liquor. The only sweetener is unrefined brown Coconut Palm sugar.
Raduno Soup CSA is monthly soup service. All soups are made with homemade from scratch stock and fresh ingredients. Because I'm vegetarian, I didn't sample the beef-based soup but I heard other attendees saying "Mmmmmmmm" so I'm guessing it was good.
TBD Foods caters farm to table dinner parties for small groups. You can even host the dinner party in your home. With so many teams rocking matching T-shirts, it was difficult to choose a Best Costume of MINFoodie10, but I thought team TBD's shirts were the most "foodie" so I hereby award them Best Costume.
In the fan voting, the grand prize winner was Vera Roasting, with runners up ShotCakes, What's Good, and Omega Oil.
The Expert Corner was buzzing all evening. The folks from Toast, a restaurant technology platform, posed for the traditional Experts Looking Expert photo.
