#11 McDonald's Pralines & Cream McFlurry
McD's broke into the top ten... until I double checked my list and realized it's actually #11. Oops. Maybe next year one of the big fast food chains (besides DQ) can break in to our top ten list.
#10 Retiring Ben & Jerry's Creme Brulee
Man are people super upset about this flavor retiring. Traffic on this post beat out several of the new 2013 B&J flavors.
#9 DQ Lemon Meringue Pie Blizzard (July BotM)
I'm hoping everyone that read this post avoided this particular blizzard
#8 DQ S'mores Blizzard (June BotM)
In fact, I told people to skip #9 and just get the S'mores blizzard again. Good Stuff!
#7 Celebrity Apprentice Ice Cream Finale w/ Magic Swirtle & Macadamia Mash-up
Macadamia Mash-Up was unique, but the people voted and Magic Swirtle outsold MMU. Nick still sees them at Walgreens if you are interested in trying either one.
#6 Ben & Jerry's Peanut Butter Jam Session
This Target exclusive got everyone's attention with one very unique & crunchy PB swirl.
#5 Breyers Blasts Girl Scout Samoas
We had 3 new Blasts in the top 20, but only this flavor made it in to the top ten. What can I say, people love Samoas, though I still prefer the Edy's version (which is still around, it just doesn't have the Girl Scout branding anymore).
#4 Ben & Jerry's Coffee Coffee Buzz Buzz Buzz!
CCBBB returns from the flavor graveyard to jump in to the #4 spot. I think it's safe to say B&J's made the right decision to bring this one back.
#3 Magnum Gold?! Ice Cream Bar
The U.S. only got one new Magnum product this year and it was a doozy. Their gold coloring might make a neat treat to share with friends on New Years Eve.
#2 DQ Choco Covered Cheesecake Blizzard (Sept BotM)
We were treated to a lot of new blizzards this year and I'll admit it, I didn't expect to like this one as much as I did. I'm totally ok with it being the most popular blizzard post this year.
and the most popular new post of the year is....
#1 Ben & Jerry's Cotton Candy vs. Friendly's Rockin' Poppin' Cotton Candy
And it's absolutely crushing the competition, almost doubling the views of #10, and almost 40% higher than #2, people were just super curious about this flavor. It's looks fun, it sounds fun, but it was more mature than I expected. It's not my favorite new B&J flavor of the year, but it could be argued it's the most unique.
