Oreo® Turns Into a Pumpkin

Cinderella’s run is over! 

In the first Final Four matchup , the clock struck midnight on Oreo® Cheesecake, ending its improbable run in the First Ever Cheesecake Playoffs.  The number #12 seed, making it as far as the semifinals, couldn’t overcome the delectable chocolateness of the top seeded 30th Anniversary Chocolate Cake Cheesecake.

The Farris clan picked up both offerings this past Sunday, and for me, it was actually kinda tough – I personally think Oreo® put up a good fight.  But in the end, the 30th Anniversary Chocolate Cake Cheesecake (earning the most points from our previous run through the entire Cheesecake Factory menu of cheesecakes) proved its worth by gaining each of our votes.  Although it didn’t get any of our votes in the semifinal round, we’ve gotta give Oreo® its due.  It started as the #12 seed in a 12-cheesecake playoff, having to beat such contenders as the Original Cheesecake Factory Cheesecake, and the #4 seed Chocolate Mousse Cheesecake. 

This weekend, it’s a peanut butter cheesecake showdown, with Reese’s Peanut Butter Chocolate Cake Cheesecake versus Adam’s Peanut Butter Cup Fudge Ripple.
