IF I SCREAM FOR ICE CREAM IN THE DESERT WILL ANYONE BRING ME SOME? Round Two, Day 4

Round Two wraps up with Strawberry v. Cookies & Cream and Caramel/Dulce de Leche v. Moose Tracks. For once, your bracketmaster will not be trying too hard to sway you one way or another!

Round Two, Day 3 Results:
Mint Chocolate Chip 53% v. Cookie Dough 47%
Rocky Road 52% v. Fudge Ripple 48%
[EDITOR’S NOTE: PRAISE BENJERRYSUS!]

I feel roughly equal about the contestents within each match-up today; I’d vote for either in the first set over either in the second, but within sets? This is a bit of a tossup for me. I suppose, if I wanted to be pedantic, I could argue against Cookies & Cream as just another variation of the vanilla-with-stuff template, while a good Strawberry ice cream (such as Haagen-Dazs) is surely a thing of supreme reverence. And y’all already know my objections to Moose Tracks; however, I can’t say I’ve ever felt too strongly about Caramel. Anyone who can make a strong case for any of the four, I’m interested!

N.B. Do not skip out on tomorrow’s post–yes, you’ll have all weekend to look at it, but don’t *forget* about it, ’cause it’ll bring in some surprises!

Voting open until Friday 5:00 p.m. EDT; updated bracket I SCREAM, YOU SCREAM, WE ALL SCREAM here.

  1. The best Strawberry Ice Cream I ever had was in Cairo, Egypt. It was SO HOT and so we got ice cream everyday, and the strawberry had chunks of strawberry IN IT. Divine.

    Related: I always associate Pistachio (YEAH, PISTACHIO) with Italy, where I first had it. Delicious.

  2. Why!?!?!?!? Why must you pit caramel vs. moose tracks?!

    I picked caramel, if you must know.

    Also, can I put a caveat on my vote for strawberry? The cheap kind of strawberry ice cream, where it is artificially flavored tastes like a mix of medicine and vomit; however, the good kind, made with real strawberries, is heavenly. My vote is for the heavenly one.
