Here is a list of what we are serving:

And a taste of:

We are hosting exciting contests on social media during the Taste, including a “Guess the Ingredients” contest and “Foodie Photo Challenge.”
The “Guess the Ingredients” contest appears in a variety of posts on our Facebook and Twitter. Participants guess how many pounds of each ingredient is in our #BigCakeAtTaste which will be served for free on Saturday, July 9th at 12:30pm at Buckingham Fountain. This Giant Cheesecake is 1505 pounds! There are two posts a day to guess how many pounds of a specific ingredient is in the Eli’s Big Cheesecake. Comment on the posts on Facebook/Twitter with the hashtags: #ElisAtTaste and #BigCakeAtTaste.
The Foodie Photo Challenge is hosted on Instagram and features photos like the one below with our Chocolate Chip Crunch Dipper.
