About this entry

Stuffing is delicious. That's why people love it. But for some reason, people only eat it one day a year: Thanksgiving. And when you're a company who makes and sells a product that people enjoy only one day a year, that's kind of a problem. The guys over at Stove Top wanted stuffing to be enjoyed far past the one day a year when Mom stuffs it inside a basted bird. They wanted it to be enjoyed for an entire season between Thanksgiving and Christmas - "stuffing season".

Why does this entry deserve to win?

Eating stuffing only on Thanksgiving is so mainstream. And in this day and age, there's no one better to rebel against the status quo than a hipster millennial. The Artisanal Hipster Pilgrim stands up to his forefathers' antiquated ideas about stuffing and helps people figure out how to eat Stove Top all Stuffing Season long.
