Top 10 frozen treats of 2013

Based on bloggers built in tracking, these are the top ten eleven reviews that have picked up the most traffic. If you want, try to guess a few before clicking ahead.

#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.

How about "top bottom 10 frozen treats of 2013"?

That would be fun

HAHAHAHAHA, let me compile the list and see how it looks, if there are some appropriate flavors on it, I'll post it.

Worst of the Year: Ben & Jerry's Pineapple Passionfruit

I had no idea that Creme Brulee was retiring and I'm absolutely distraught. It is my favorite B&J flavor of all time! I've been so distracted by hunting down Pumpkin Cheesecake since late August that I hardly noticed if Creme Brulee was missing...now to go scour the stores and see if anything is left! So disappointing! :-(
