Final 16 “Best of Fall” Contestants Include Statewide Cross-Section of PA’s Autumnal Favorites

Second Week of Public Voting to Kick off at Noon on Tuesday, October 10


It’s been one week since the PA Chamber’s launched its inaugural “Best of Fall” competition – a bracket-style public voting contest over X and Instagram – and voters have showcased their loyalty to a cross-section of Pennsylvania’s autumnal brands, treats and experiences as 32 nominees have since been narrowed down to the Final 16.


“Week one of our ‘Best of Fall’ contest featured some intense and close matchups, and despite the cooler weather settling in I think this competition is only heating up,” PA Chamber President and CEO Luke Bernstein said. “As week two begins, we’re excited to see the world-famous Reese’s Peanut Butter Pumpkin – a Halloween favorite – face off against the classic Pennsylvania Dutch Apple pie. Our beer matchup pits two famed PA breweries – Tröegs and Yards – against each other. And would voters rather head to an evening of frights at Hersheypark Halloween or a Pittsburgh Steelers game? They’ll have to weigh in over X and Instagram to determine who moves on in this fun-filled, Pennsylvania brand and experience-loyalty contest.”



Round 2 officially kicks off when voting begins at Noon on Tuesday, October 10.




The remainder of the tournament voting schedule is as follows:




Second round: 10/10-10/13

Third round: 10/17-10/18

Fourth round: 10/19-10/20

Championship: 10/23
