Jewel-Osco's Adan Diaz Wins Best Time on Sweet Pepper Quiz Quix

SACRAMENTO, CA - What started out as a friendly competition came out as a Double Jeopardy!

Adan Diaz, Produce Buyer, Jewel-OscoAs everyone might have seen from our latest Snack Cover contest, we have added an extra chapter to the winning pot to recognize and reward not only the fastest contestant, but the first retail winner, as well. Adan Diaz, Produce Buyer for Jewel-Osco, is the first to snag not one, but both titles via yesterday’s Pepper quiz, sponsored by Double Diamond Farms. So, this pepper champ won a cool $200 cash for his speed and expertise.

A second twist was added in–we have upped the challenge on our quizzes, with the opportunity to go in knowing all the answers by reading a prompt before beginning. With both time and the percentage of right answers at stake, we hope this added an extra jolt of adrenaline to your Monday activities!

Sneak a peek to see if you know any of the top dogs that looked to bump Adan out of the lead by glimpsing the leaderboard below:

Kudos go out not only to those speedy contenders, but perfect scorer Mikee Suarez of Mas Melons & Grapes, as well as those who were just one away, such as Sobeys’ Jim Bower and 4Earth Farms’ Mark Munger.

  • Calavo’s Sandy Eason
  • LGS Specialty Sales Category Manager, Rebekah McMurrain
  • Save Mart’s Melissa Morrell
  • NatureFresh™ Farms’ Paul Schockman
