I know that I always make sure my fridge at home is stocked with Heluva Good! dips and have enjoyed them, especially the always tasty French Onion, for many years.”
“Heluva Good! is proud to return as the title sponsor of the ‘Heluva Good! Sour Cream Dips at The Glen’ in our birthplace, Upstate New York,” said Chris Ross, Vice President of Marketing at Heluva Good!. “The Heluva Good! brand is built on bold flavors and personality, which complement the characteristics of NASCAR’s passionate fans.”
