Ultimate Flavor Tournament (Round 4): The Frosty Four

Posted by Turkey Hill Team on March 30th, 2015


We started with 32 flavors, then narrowed it down to 16, then eight, and now — based on your votes — just four flavors remain. Each of the “Frosty Four” flavors are the champions of their respective conferences. They’ll now face off against each other this week to determine which two flavors will advance to the final round.

Our Frosty Four flavors are:

VANILLA CONFERENCE – Cookies ‘n Cream

CHOCOLATE CONFERENCE – Double Dunker

ALL NATURAL CONFERENCE – All Natural Salted Caramel

ALL NATURAL GELATO CONFERENCE – Sea Salted Caramel Gelato

That’s an impressive Frosty Four! Which flavor do you think has what it takes to be the 2015 Ultimate Flavor Tournament champion? Sound off with a comment.

You can also cast your vote using the polls on the right. As a reminder, don’t forget to leave a comment because, at the end of the tournament, we’ll be giving away a ONE YEAR supply of Turkey Hill Ice Cream to one commenter chosen at random! We’ll also be voting this week on our Facebook Page with a series of four posts for each of the match-ups. Feel free to LIKE Turkey Hill Dairy on Facebook and cast your vote there because we’re giving away a ONE YEAR supply of cream on Facebook, too!

Cookies ‘n Cream vs. Double Dunker

March 30 - UFT - Cookies n Cream vs Double Dunker

EXPERT ANALYSIS: This is a tough one. Both of these flavors have been steamrolling their way through the 2015 tournament, but only one can win. Both flavors were also among the most likely final round contenders at the beginning of the tournament, so it’s no surprise to see them  facing off in the Frosty Four. If we had to pick one to move on to the finals, we’d give the edge to Double Dunker. That’s a powerful flavor with a powerful fan base.

All Natural Sea Salted Caramel Gelato vs. All Natural Salted Caramel

March 31 - UFT - Salted Caramel

EXPERT ANALYSIS: It’s official — people love salted caramel. The only question when it comes to this match-up is whether they love that sweet and salty taste in Gelato or in ice cream. But remember: these two flavors do have some key differences. All Natural Sea Salted Caramel Gelato packs its salted caramel inside little chocolate nuggets. All Natural Salted Caramel Ice Cream has no chocolate — just ribbons upon ribbons of delicious salted caramel. Does that offer any indication about which flavor will win this showdown? Not really, which is why we’re not even going to try to pick a winner!

Who’s coming to our “First Day of Spring” ice cream party?
