Last Day to Vote on the 2 vs. 15 Match-ups!

Could Krispy Kreme be the big upset loser of the first round? (Image via Wikipedia)

Tomorrow morning, there will be a reckoning … at least we reckon there will. At that time, we’ll total up the votes in all of our 2-seed versus 15-seed match-ups in the Southern Sweets Showdown.

“They” say there are not really any losers, only different levels of winners. Hogwash, say we! There will be losers, and those losers will slink back in shame while the winners move on to the second round.

In case you’ve forgotten, here are the match-ups at play:

In Pies, Cobblers and Dumplings, the #2 Peach Cobbler is absolutely pummeling Coconut Cream Pie. That’s what it gets for bringing a pie to a knife fight. This isn’t Vaudeville. A cream pie to the face may get some laughs, but Peach Cobbler came to fight. It’s been raised in Southern farm country and refined in a cast iron dutch oven. We’ll see how much Coconut Cream Pie is laughing when Peach Cobbler is finished slapping its meringue into next week.

In the Hand-Held Treats Region, we’re seeing the upset to end all upsets: 15-seed Bud’s Best Cookies is still leading 2-seed Krispy Kreme Original Glazed Doughnuts by a healthy margin. In this David vs Goliath bout, David brought a new-fangled sling: social media. Bud’s Best has mobilized their supporters via Facebook and Twitter, while Krispy Kreme replied to our tweets with a generic auto-response. Krispy Kreme, we love your doughnuts, but they aren’t going to vote for themselves.

In the Miscellany Region, Fudge is predictably whipping up on the 15-seed Mayhaw Jelly. This could be because we suggested that Mayhaw Jelly is made from old boats. (It isn’t.) Or it could be because no one knows what it is. (They don’t.)

Finally, from Cakes, Puddings & Ice Cream, Pound Cake is handily beating Butter Pecan Ice Cream. It’s nothing against the buttery, pecan-y goodness of the ice cream, but Southerners just love that ever versatile, ubiquitous Pound Cake.

Don’t agree with the current situation? Then, as they say in Louisiana, vote early and vote often. To vote, click on the links above … or visit our Facebook page.

New match-ups coming tomorrow!
