[UPDATED to include the 2015 competition results.]
The World's Best Rice™ Competition has been held annually since 2009 by The Rice Trader™, an American rice industry consulting firm.
The Competition holds a blind taste test of samples submitted by rice industry firms, and names the winning rice — or rices, if there is a tie — to be The World's Best Rice for that year.
Cambodian Jasmine Rice™ first competed in 2012, and won that and the next two years, for an unprecedented three years in a row. The published results of the competition, just after the 2015 competition, are shown in Table 1 (Winners) below:
|Thai Jasmine Rice||Won||Won||Tied|
|Myanmar Paw Son Rice||Won|
|Cambodian Jasmine Rice||Won||Tied||Tied|
If one awards 100 points for a win, and 50 points for sharing a win in a two-way tie, then one gets a table like Table 2 (Scores) below:
|Thai Jasmine Rice||100||100||50|
|Myanmar Paw Son Rice||100|
|Cambodian Jasmine Rice||100||50||50|
From Table 2 above, one can derive a simple (non-weighted) Four Year Moving Average of Rice Bestiness™, shown in Table 3 (Rice Bestiness™) below:
|Thai Jasmine Rice||50||25||12.5||12.5|
|Myanmar Paw Son Rice||25||25||25||0|
|Cambodian Jasmine Rice||25||37.5||50||50|
As a chart:
Some definitions (as per the Humpty-Dumpty Principle in Semantics):
The three consecutive victories of Cambodian Jasmine Rice — in 2012, 2013, and 2014 — accumulated so much Rice Bestiness™ that it is still more besty, and is bestier, than any other rice.
In 2015, Cambodian Jasmine Rice is The Bestiest Rice Anywhere™.
