"BEST OF SECTION"
What is the difference between a Purple and Blue ribbon?
Everyone knows that a Blue Ribbon represents 1ST Place. However, not everyone knows that in many competitions the Judges will select the 1ST Place winner from each category and award a coveted Purple Ribbon to the "Best of the Best".
For the baking LaBrecque family, 1ST Place State Fair honors have been awarded for the past 21 consecutive years (1989 - 2009). With over 100 1ST Place State Fair awards the LaBrecque family has dominated the competition. In addition to these many 1ST Place awards they have also won "Best of Section" Purple Ribbons 30 times for their baked goods.
This high standard of excellance, attention to detail and unwillingness to compromise quality is what consistently sets the products from the bakers at 1ST AVE Bakery apart from all others.
You can now enjoy not only 1ST Place award winning items, but items that have also been consistently judged to be the "Best of the Best".
