Time for OT in the Southern Sweets Showdown

Okay, okay… We know it’s not nice to be talking about sweets while so many of you are trying desperately to keep your resolutions or shed some holiday pounds. To that we say: get over it! Real Southern Men don’t cry about their weight.

How about some results?

For some reason, the 4s vs 13s produced the closest results we’ve had thus far. For example, in the Hand-Held Treats Region, #4 Tea Cakes edged out #13 Nutty Buddy Cones by a single vote.

In Pies, Cobblers & Dumplings, the favorite Blackberry Cobbler bested Apple Dumplings with 64% of the vote.

#4 Apple Butter and #13 Banana and Mayonnaise Sandwich finished in a dead heat in the Miscellany Region with 50% of the vote each. Same for Homemade Peach Ice Cream and Coca-Cola Cake in the Cakes, Puddings and Ice Cream region.
