It’s the Elite Eight!
First, the results of the Wild Card! Mocha Chip totally trumped Spumoni, even when counting the many write-ins for Pistachio in the Spumoni column (what? Spumoni is part pistachio! That’s the point!). Other fun suggestions included cardamom (ed. note: gimme), salted caramel, ginger (ed. note: my mom makes her own, with candied ginger and rum, and it is fine), lavender, and tiramisu.
Spumoni 35% v. Mocha Chip 65%
Here’s how the rest of the bracket will play out:
Monday: Elite Eight pt. 1 (two match-ups)
Tuesday: Elite Eight pt. 2 (two match-ups)
Wednesday: Final Four pt. 1 (one match-up)
Thursday: Final Four pt. 2 (one match-up)
The triumphant flavor will be announced the following Monday.
Elite Eight Pt. 1
Chocolate v. Moose Tracks
Cookies & Cream v. Mocha Chip
You know the drill–I want to see vigorous arguments, passionate defenses, vitriolic attacks, poetry, the works! As you discovered last week, I will not hesitate to interfere should I see a lack of engagement. My favorite flavor is still in the running, and if you don’t make the case for your own choice… well, screw democracy, I’ll just crown the winners according to my preferences! Voting closes at 5 p.m. EDT Tuesday.
