What’s the “Coolest Thing Made in PA?” Voters Will Decide This Week!

The PA Chamber’s popular 2024 “Coolest Thing Made in PA” contest heads into its fourth and final week today – giving voters a few more chances to make their voices heard over the PA Chamber’s X and Instagram pages as to who they think should make it through the semi-final and championship rounds.


“These last few rounds of the contest have been especially close, and last week, several matchups were determined by single-digit votes,” said PA Chamber President and CEO Luke Bernstein. “We expect the same level of support this week for the remaining contestants – including two returning nominees from our inaugural contest who clearly have devoted fan bases. It’s anyone’s game, and we wish all finalists luck.”


So far, 90,000 votes have been cast in the 2024 “Coolest Thing Made in PA” contest across both X and Instagram. The competition, which started with 64 contestants, now stands at four, as public voting begins again today at Noon.


The remaining participants include:


Crayola Crayons vs. Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups


Mrs. T’s Pierogies vs. Primanti Bros. Sandwich


The remaining competition schedule is as follows:


Semi-Finals (4): 4/8 – 4/9

Championship: 4/10 – 4/11
