Ultimate Flavor Tournament (Round Three): Brownies, chocolate chocolate chocolate, and minty cookies

Posted by Turkey Hill Team on May 16th, 2017

Round three of the Ultimate Flavor Tournament has arrived! Our initial field of 32 flavors has been narrowed down to eight, and the first four flavors in that group are facing off for your votes starting today. Will one of these four retired flavors eventually win the tournament and return to the line-up? We’ll have to wait and see!

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!


Caramel Brownie Overload vs. Death By Chocolate

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

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

EXPERT ANALYSIS: This match-up really comes down to one question: Do you like a little caramel with your chocolate or do you like a little chocolate with your chocolate? If you’re a chocoholic — and we know there are plenty of them out there — Death by Chocolate is your choice. But if you prefer a little more balance with your flavor, you might cast your vote for Caramel Brownie Overload. Well, which is it?


German Chocolate Cake vs. Mint Cookies ‘n Cream

GERMAN CHOCOLATE CAKE (2004-2005, 2007, 2009-2010) – Caramel, almonds, coconut, and chocolate cake pieces in chocolate ice cream

MINT COOKIES ‘N CREAM (1991-1995) – Cool mint ice cream with heaping scoops of chocolate cookie pieces

EXPERT ANALYSIS: German Chocolate Cake knows a thing or two about making a comeback. It joined the Turkey Hill Limited Edition line-up not once, not twice, but THREE different times. Mint Cookies ‘n Cream, on the other hand, spent five years in the rotation in the early 90s and is itching to make a return visit to shelves. Our prediction for this showdown? German Chocolate Cake…but not by much.

    Death by Chocolate wins for me because I’m not sure there should be caramel ice cream – caramel IN ice cream, definitely. Also, Mint cookies and Cream sounds fabulous – not a big fan of coconut, so it has to stay out of my ice cream.
