My Alaska Merry Cremas Food Fest 2016 Experience

6:14:00 AM

Ever since I attended Yummy Eats way back in 2013, I've become very ecstatic in joining such fun and tummy-filling events that introduces new food brands/businesses. The owners usually give out free samples of their best sellers and then visitors get to choose their favorite booth/food among all the participants of that food event. It is a great opportunity for them to reach out to a bigger market and also a way for customers to directly talk to the owners of these businesses in case they wanted to do partnerships or if they just want to order something from them.

So when Ms. Vimz Mendoza sent an invite for the Alaska Merry Cremas Food Event last November 6, 2016, I immediately confirmed my attendance. The event took place at the Trinoma Activity Center that started from 11:00am up to 8:00pm and it featured around 30 food concessionaires that are very much ready to introduce their specialties as well as the food they have prepared using Alaska Crema products.



The event was open to the public so there's no need to purchase any item prior to entering the venue. They just had to line up at the registration area and claim their Alaska Merry Cremas Passport which will be stamped in every booth they visit. Once their passports have a minimum of 10 stamps (and a selfie at the venue posted on any social media account with the hashtag #MerryCremas2016), they can claim a loot bag at the registration area.

It was indeed another successful Alaska Merry Cremas Food Fest and I can't wait for next year's event. I would like to thank Ms. Vimz Mendoza and Sir Art Mendoza for inviting me to cover the event.
