Brandon participated in a food unit with his fourth-grade class at Evergreen Elementary School and became more interested in cooking, as well as nutritional snacks. He discovered this recipe on "Mr. Rogers Neighborhood" television show. His mother, Maliaka, said, "When he first saw it, he said 'Yuk. Who would eat that?' but then he tried and liked it."

According to his mom, Brandon and his dad went through lots of recipes before deciding which one to send in. "I don't know how to cook much. This is easy," he said.
