What would you like for dessert?

Pick one per pairing.

OH NOES...I've gone blind, I can't see the poll. But on the bright side, no candied bacon

Cheesecake is going to divide and conquer itself.

Another poll where I imagine many would pass on matchup #1

Flan vs. Strawberry Rhubarb Crisp

Going with the rhubarb on this one. What a bizarre dessert, but it's delicious. Flan? Not into it - not enough flavor.

Caramel Cheescake vs. Chocolate Peanut Butter Cheesecake

Frankly, both of these would rank below plain cheesecake for me. If I had to pick one, I'd probably go with caramel in a close vote.

Strawberry Cheesecake vs. Brownies, No Nuts

These are two juggernauts. Both are fantastic. I'm really torn and my choice depends on my mood, but right at this moment I would pick strawberry cheesecake.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup Pie vs. Key Lime Pie

The peanut butter cup thing sounds good, but key lime pie would perhaps be my overall winner against any opponent. Key lime pie might be nature's most perfect food.

Wow. Strawberry cheesecake paired with brownies? Tough call, but I went strawberry cheesecake. Both options for for chocolate peanut butter whatever. Not a fan of flan, so I picked the strawberry rhubarb crisp.

Possibly, but that would only be because they haven't tried strawberry rhubarb crisp. The first time my wife made it I was very wary, but that stuff is delicious.

I imagine that every restaurant in heaven serves key lime pie.

Strawberry Rhubarb Crisp - Sounds great, easy choice

Chocolate Peanut Butter Cheesecake - Meh

Strawberry Cheesecake - Outstanding, might have been closer if brownies had nuts but probably not much closer

Key Lime Pie - Close call

I'm detecting an affection for citris. Orange chicken, lemon cake, key lime pie... Do you have a fear of scurvy or something?

I hate scurvy. Arrrrr.

I do indeed have a citrus affinity. You put a tart fruit flavor in any food and it makes it better. However, in Dessert Warfare that affinity will also battle a love for chocolate and anything sweet in general.

Key Lime Pie is great, but no way should it ever beat out Chocolate and Peanut Butter.

Flan is a custard

Not if it's made well. A good flan is a great dessert, and I'd take it over the Rhubarb every time. A bad flan, though, can be pretty tough to eat.

Chocolate peanut butter pie vs. key lime pie us a tough match up. I love key lime, but anything with peanut butter cups in it gets my attention quick.

In the end though, I voted for key lime since I already had a slice of chocolate peanut butter cheesecake in matchup #2.

The many varieties of cheesecake are tainting this competition like all the different kinds of BBQ tainted the meat competition.

Why why why do you keep grouping the things I like to be against each other, and the things I've never heard of or could care less about against each other?!11 :(

Key lime pie lost? What's going on here? You people are killing me! Key lime pie shouldn't lose to anything except maybe lemon meringue pie!

(Grumble.)

Peg a loss on flan, caramel cheesecake, brownies without nuts (a sad loss) and key lime pie.

Well, for God's sake man, why did you set the bracket up that way? WHY!
