[prMac.com] Stamford, Connecticut - Solid Rock Solutions Group, LLC is pleased to announce the release of their new social game app, Grub Olympx(TM), now available on the Apple App Store. Grub Olympx(TM) is a user-friendly interactive app that provides you the opportunity to search and discover signature international dishes from around the world and also learn facts such as country population, GDP,famous athlete,landmarks and country soccer team nicknames.
As the London summer games fast approaches, this app might be a great companion app to learn about popular and iconic international foods that might be fueling the next generation of sprinters in Jamaica (Jerk Chicken), basketballers and swimmers of USA (Apple Pie), gymnasts of China (Peking Duck) or even athletes of New Zealand (Bacon and Egg Pie) and Nigeria (Suya).
"We believe Grub Olympx will be not only valuable for adventurous food enthusiasts, but also to those who want to learn more about the world. As New York Times columnist Tom Friedman notes, the world is flat and with the Obama administration's recent focus on export markets; it is increasingly necessary for young people, who may be our future diplomats and business leaders to know more about the world and enhance cultural competency. We say, why not make multicultural learning fun, easy and delicious?" said Kel Jack, co-creator of Grub Olympx.
Grub Olympx allows you to login via Facebook, or create a GrubOlympx account. You can log in as an individual, and also associate with a group such as a school, business, church or religious institution. Try classic dishes from a region with links to recipes and a restaurant in the New York City Tri State area that may serve the dish, capture your conquest in a picture, and rate the dish. With a click, you can also map out your culinary conquests, accumulate points on your "GrubPassport", compete with your friends and share through Facebook and Twitter.
"Grub Olympx has received positive feedback from wide groups ranging from students and schools who see its educative value, global business people who can use the experience to break the ice and build rapport with foreign clients, or individuals who simply use it as "food bucket list," and couples as a dating exercise to try out different cuisines and restaurants" said Jack.
