Three weeks ago when the Ultimate Flavor Tournament kicked off, 32 flavors had high hopes of being the next champion. Since then, 28 flavors have been eliminated, leaving just four flavors – The Frosty Four – to face off for a spot in next week’s final round.
The four flavors that are still standing represent the best of their respective flavor conferences. The Frosty Four includes Tin Roof Sundae (Vanilla Conference), Light Recipe Chocolate Nutty Moose Tracks (Chocolate Conference), Stuff’d Strawberry Cheesecake (Fruit Conference), and Limited Edition Chunky Peanut Butter (Limited Edition Conference).
Which two flavors will win this week to advance to the final round? That’s for your votes to decide in the polls on the right. As always, our very own “Einstein of Ice Cream,” Mr. Ernie Pinckney offers his thoughts below on this week’s match-ups.
ERNIE SAYS: I picked both of these flavors to win their match-ups last week, and they did exactly that. They were bold picks, too, because both flavors were facing off against some tough competition (Tin Roof Sundae beat Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough, while the “Nutty Tracks” took down Rocky Road). Which of these two fighters will win this round? It’ll be close, but I’m going with Chocolate Nutty Moose Tracks.
ERNIE SAYS: Who would have predicted that an underdog like Stuff’d Strawberry Cheesecake would have made it this far in the tournament? (Not me. I picked Black Cherry to beat the Cheesecake last week.) Does Strawberry Cheesecake have the “Stuff’d” to beat a Limited Edition powerhouse like Chunky Peanut Butter? I don’t think so, but I’ve been wrong before!
