On today's Planet Money:

A very special radio competition. We sent Adam Davidson, Chana Joffe-Walt and David Kestenbaum to New York's Fancy Food Show and challenged them to bring back the best economics stories they could find. Listen to their stories, hear our panel of celebrity judges weigh in and then decide who you think should be the winner.

Bonus: Listen to each story individually and vote for the winner, after the jump.
