And sample we did! From fruit cups to Mrs. Mays natural fruit and nut snacks to grilled banana s'mores (see recipe below!) to Dole's cool new Smoothie Shakers, we definitely indulged in a few summer treats.

Grilled Banana S'mores
Prep: 5 min.
Grill: 10 min.
Makes: 4 servings
* 2 Dole bananas, unpeeled
* 4 graham crackers, broken into halves
* 2 bars (1.55 oz each) milk chocolate, broken into halves
1. Place unpeeled bananas on the grill over medium high heat. Grill 4 to 5 minutes on each side until bananas darken and slightly soften.
2. Remove from heat. Remove top half of banana peel. For each s'more, scoop half of grilled banana on graham cracker square. Top with square of chocolate and second graham cracker half. Press gently together.
Yum! And congrats to Jeanette Nelson of Crab Orchard, W.V., who won the cook-off with her Island Pork Sliders with Jicama Salsa recipe!
