Kozy Shack seeks recipes using its pudding or flan in a  "Recipe Showdown" contest running Oct. 1 to Jan. 2, 2013. Entrants submit original recipes, that will be judged on four criteria: creativity; best use of the pudding or flan; healthfulness; and appropriateness of the recipe to the category (dessert or main course/appetizer/side dish).
The Grand Prize is a trip for two (including airfare, two nights in a hotel and $500 cash) to Los Angeles to attend a taping of CBS Television’s ‘The Talk’ and to make an appearance on the show.

The grand prize winner will have the opportunity to win either $10,000 or $1,000,000 as a bonus prize. During the appearance on "The Talk," the Grand Prize winner has the opportunity to select from 50 envelopes, one of which contains a message entitling the winner to the $1 million bonus prize, payable $25,000 per year for 40 years. Two First Prizes are $5,000 and eight Second Prizes are $500.  Entry is online or by scanning a QR code on the insert.
