Breaking the Tie – Godiva® vs. Tiramisu

Tiramisu Cheesecake vs. Godiva® Chocolate Cheesecake

In the first big matchup in the Cheesecake Playoffs, we are forced to break the ultimate tie.

The first battle pits #8 and #9 seeds – Godiva® Chocolate Cheesecake vs. Tiramisu Cheesecake

Now, it turns out that this is the ultimate tie, not only because both the Godiva® Chocolate Cheesecake and the Tiramisu Cheesecake scored a healthy 21 points with the Farris family, but each of us rated each cheesecake exactly the same.  Monroe and I both ranked these two pieces of decadence with an 8, while Stephanie gave each a 5.  (you can check out our scores for ALL the cheesecakes here…)

Well, something’s gotta give, and we’re each going to have to pick a winner.  Tomorrow will be that day!

So, here’s the schedule for the Farris family as we head into the first round of the playoffs on Saturday, October 9.  Monroe has her Newbury Park soccer game in the morning, and then we’re off to lunch in Hollywood.  We’ll then go to see Secretariat at the El Capitan Theater for the 4:00 show.

Then, it’s off to The Grove in Los Angeles to The Cheesecake Factory for dinner, and the tie-breaking showdown!

Stay tuned to see how it all plays out, and which cheesecake gets the opportunity to face off against the top seed, the 30th Anniversary Chocolate Cake Cheesecake

An aside – as we enter the playoffs, we’ve found that we’re not making everybody happy.  Not that these folks don’t enjoy the decadent duels that will be playing out over the next several weeks…

It’s seems that some are upset that we’re not including MORE of The Cheesecake Factory’s desserts.  There are more specialty offerings – such as Lemoncello Cream Torte™ and Black-Out Cake.   We had specific complaints with not including Fresh Strawberry Shortcake and Linda’s Fudge Cake!

Well, fear not, our dear fans!  I have a feeling we’ll be tasting these tasties soon, but we certainly need to keep our focus on the cheesecakes at hand.  Champions can’t be distracted from achieving their goal  – we gotta keep our eyes on the prize!
