It’s been a year of virtual meet-ups for Austin Food Blogger Alliance, so it was fitting to celebrate our annual holiday party online. Of course, as with much of this year, we wish we could get together to eat some good food and cheers with some good drinks, but we made the best of it and had a really fun time! We dressed in our festive holiday sweaters to catch up with each other and play an intense game of trivia.
We divided into four teams and each team came up with their team name: Merry Christmas You Filthy Animals, The Pointsettias, The Cookie Monsters, and Merry Catmus. Our members threw all their memory into three rounds of food-related trivia. We tested our knowledge about Austin food facts and cooking in general. For example, can you name all of the Austin barbecue joints on Texas Monthly’s 50 best list? Everyone agreed the questions were challenging but our members did really well putting their heads together!
Our winning team was Merry Catmus – Bianca and Julie! Each of them won a gift certificate for cookies, which brings us to…
BIG THANK YOU to Wunderkeks for sponsoring our holiday trivia! Wunderkeks is an online bakery born and raised in Austin. Their #bestcookiesever were founded by Hans and Luis, who created their cookie business in Guatemala and moved it to Austin about two years ago. Their fun brand is filled with color and when you get your box in the mail, expect delicious cookies and some special surprises to remind you to have some fun!
Which Wunderkeks flavor would you choose? Chocolate chip, inside-out chocolate chip, triple chocolate chip, snickerdoodle, peanut butter, cotton candy, cranberry white chocolate, oatmeal and raisin, or everything?
