Posted by Turkey Hill Team on April 17th, 2017

Round one of the Ultimate Flavor Tournament is in the books, and your votes have narrowed our field of 32 retired flavors down to 16 in the battle to determine which former flavor will return to the Turkey Hill line-up.

Round two starts today with the two match-ups you see below along with match-up analysis provided by our team of Ultimate Flavor Tournament experts.

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!


Baked Apple Dumpling vs. Caramel Brownie Overload

BAKED APPLE DUMPLING (2007-2011) – Cinnamon ice cream with a caramel apple swirl and apple dumpling pieces

CARAMEL BROWNIE OVERLOAD (2000) – Caramel ice cream with brownies and waves of rich caramel fudge

MATCH-UP ANALYSIS: Caramel Brownie Overload is coming off of a big round one upset over Berried Treasure, but does it have the momentum it needs to notch a win over the fan-favorite Baked Apple Dumpling? Our experts predict a win for Dumpling, but Overload won’t go down without a fight.


Caramel Cashew Crunch vs. Death by Chocolate

CARAMEL CASHEW CRUNCH (1991-1996) – Scoops of cashew pieces and caramel fudge stirred in our original vanilla ice cream

DEATH BY CHOCOLATE (1992-1998) – Dark chocolate ice cream loaded with dark, sweet chocolate chips and a rich brownie batter fudge

MATCH-UP ANALYSIS – Two of the oldest former flavors in the tournament are going head-to-head, but only one will win. After a win in round one against Chocolate Malt Chip, Death by Chocolate has shown that it’s got the chocolate vote in its back pocket. But is that enough to overcome caramel fans in this battle against Caramel Cashew Crunch?

    Voted for Death by chocolate which hubby likes since none of the 4 appeal to me.

  61. KimB says:

    Caramel Brownie Overload and Death By Chocolate. Never got the chance to try Caramel Brownie Overload, so it would be nice to get the opportunity. Death By Chocolate is one I enjoyed for a long time and really, really miss, so it would be even better if that turns out to be the ultimate winner.

    Not that big a caramel fan but that will be my preference of these match-ups.

  80. sar says:

    definitely BAKED APPLE DUMPLING. The others are so run of the mill flavors. I make cinnamon ice cream by adding it to their vanilla. So it’s time they brought back a cinnamon based ice cream. The name did the flavor no justice, as the base flavor is not even mentioned in the flavor name.
