Dulce de Leche vs. German Chocolate Cake
DULCE DE LECHE (2000-2001, 2003) – Ribbons of creamy caramel ripple swirled throughout caramel ice cream
GERMAN CHOCOLATE CAKE (2004-2005, 2007, 2009-2010) – Caramel, almonds, coconut, and chocolate cake pieces in chocolate ice cream
MATCH-UP ANALYSIS: In round one, Dulce de Leche toppled Dutch Neapolitan and German Chocolate Cake took down fan favorite Fried Ice Cream. Both are impressive wins, but German Chocolate Cake has the added advantage of combining chocolate ice cream AND caramel. Throw in the chocolate cake pieces and you’ve got a force to be reckoned with!
Hazelnut Fudge vs. Mint Cookies ‘n Cream
HAZELNUT FUDGE (1996) – Choco hazelnuts and rich hazelnut fudge sprinkled throughout vanilla ice cream
MINT COOKIES ‘N CREAM (1991-1995) – Cool mint ice cream with heaping scoops of chocolate cookie pieces
MATCH-UP ANALYSIS: This match-up is a tough one to call, but we’re leaning toward Mint Cookies ‘n Cream having the advantage in this one mainly because of the power of its classic cousin, Cookies ‘n Cream. But who knows…maybe Hazelnut Fudge has what it takes to pull off an upset!
