Today’s the day, folks. 32 retired Turkey Hill ice cream flavors from the past 25 years will face off in our annual Ultimate Flavor Tournament and the winner — based on your votes — will return to the Turkey Hill lineup. That’s right, YOU get to bring back a former flavor. Will it be one of your favorites? We’ll find out over the next eight weeks.
How the tournament works is simple. Each week will feature a series of head-to-head match-ups between two flavors. The winning flavor will advance to the next round, where it will face off against another flavor. We’ll narrow 32 flavors down to 16, 16 down to eight, then four flavors, then two flavors and then we’ll have a winner.
This week will feature the eight flavors you see below. Cast your vote in the polls in the right hand sidebar of the blog AND leave a comment with your favorites. At the end of the tournament, we’ll choose one comment at random from all the comments left during the tournament to win a ONE YEAR supply of ice cream!
And don’t forget, we’re also posting match-ups on our Facebook page, so follows us there and cast your votes for another chance to win the grand prize. May the best retired flavor win!
