Snack Madness: The Final Vote Eick April 13, 2011 Snack Madness 96 Comments Update: Voting is now closed. Oreo (77%) defeats popchips (23%) to take the Snack Madness crown and title of greatest snack in existence. A little under a month ago we created Snack Madness – a 64 snack tournament with Cookie, Cracker, Potato Chip and Misc. Snack brackets. This tournament is a follow-up to our popular Meat Madness and Fast Food Bracket tournaments in ’09 and ’10. We just wrapped a very interesting Final Four vote. Today, we begin our final vote to crown the greatest snack in existence. #1 seed Oreo takes on surprising finalist #12 popchips. Voting will conclude at 12 pm Saturday. Click the bracket below to see all the match-ups and results thus far. Oreo has cruised through the tournament with not even a scare from other contenders. After dispensing with some easy first round competition, they handily defeated Milanos to win the Cookie bracket, and easily beat Cheez-Its in the Final Four to advance to the final. (63% – 37%) popchips has been the surprise of the tournament, crushing its early competition and besting such giants as Lay’s, Pringles and Doritos. popchips has incredibly loyal and passionate fans, and have been getting out the vote through social media. But they weren’t the only ones. When Kettle urged its Facebook fans to help them defeat popchips, it wasn’t enough. When Pringles asked their 11 million Facebook fans to vote for them over popchips I thought its cinderella run would be crushed to a bloody pulp – but popchips still eeked out a victory. Facing off in the Final Four against Doritos and its 1.4 million Facebook fans, popchips once again managed to prevail (57% – 43%). Amazing. Now they take on the grand daddy titan of the snack world: Oreo and its 17 million (yes, you read that right) Facebook fans. Can popchips dethrone the giant? Or will Oreo’s 17 million fans rise up and crush the popchips uprising? In 3 days time we will know, and a Snack Madness champion will be crowned. Remember, you are voting for the snack you think deserves to be crowned the greatest snack in existence. You can base your vote on taste, cost, availability, variety of flavors, childhood memories, nutrition – whatever you deem “most important” in choosing a snack you like.

Reply tiffanie burks April 15th, 2011 loovw Reply Nichole April 15th, 2011 I have never even heard of Popchip!

Reply April 15th, 2011 OREOS RULE! Popchips are way too salty and really, no substitute for a good old potato chip. Reply Gibby April 15th, 2011 popchips don’t exist in west Michigan, nor have I even heard of them before now. OREOS OWN! Reply Jacqui April 15th, 2011 SO WE ARE THE #1 CHIP. I love Oreo’s but Popchips are poptastic and healthier. I get the best of both worlds with popchips Reply WillRun4Oreo's April 15th, 2011 Oreo’s all the way. The reason O’s are ahead is history – nobody remembers twirling open a popchip & dunking it in a big, ol’ cold glass of milk. And who has ever heard of popchip ice cream? Oreo’s, how do I love you? Let me count the ways….. fudge covered, regular, double stuff, chocolate mint…. think of your own – I’m going to get some Oreo cookies!!!!! Reply tiff April 15th, 2011 I don’t even know what popchips are! Reply ally martin April 15th, 2011 oreos are crazy great!!!! Reply Deegees April 15th, 2011 OK, I had to Goggle ‘popchips’ because I have never heard of them. You all tout that Popchips are better for you than Oreo’s. Lets look at the nutritional value of a ‘serving': Calories: popchip bbq flavor : 120 oreo 160 And for those of you that say you can eat the whole bag? A bag is THREE servings = 360 calories. fat: popchip 4 grams oreo 7 grams sodium: popchip 250 grams oreo 160 grams carbs: popchip 20 grams oreo 25 grams protein: popchip 1 gram oreo 1 gram Honestly? I know that Oreo’s aren’t the best thing going, but Popchips don’t look that much better. Reply S April 15th, 2011 @James… check Target or Safeway. Or visit popchips.com and do a search for retailers. It’s easy. Try ‘em, and you’ll know why popchips is winning. Reply Fuck Popchips, Go Ores!!! April 15th, 2011 Popchips are CRAP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I LOVE to eat Oreos!!!!!!!!!!!! Oreos are definitely going to win!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Reply cameron April 15th, 2011 I am sorry to popchips. But I am the one who tipped off oreo and they finally posted it on facebook. I just couldn’t have us lose and this whole time not a single oreo fan noticed the contest. lol… Reply Sue Crafty April 15th, 2011 I never tried a popchip, but oreos? Nothing beats them! Reply wad11656 April 15th, 2011 The heck is a popchip? All these comments are just too similar…This is allsome kind ofscam in order to increase the brand’s popularity! Heh heh…I guess I just need to try the stuff (no pun intended [doubled stuffed]) now, either way…ha ha Reply wad11656 April 15th, 2011 And I was kidding about my theory of some conspiracy where hundreds of workers were voting for popchips 24/7â€”I’m sure they’re good, but REALLY. This IS ridiculous. I don’t mean to be insulting, but who’s even HEARD of popchips??? Hmm… Reply Desire April 15th, 2011 Aww all these comments and popchip is still losing. 2,000+ votes.

Oreo all the way! Reply Bret April 15th, 2011 I have never heard of pop chip, but I imagine it is “a foul, disease-ridden thing, that wears too much makeup to cover up the fact that it’s a 47 year-old fish-dog”. If you got the reference good for you! Reply thewaffles April 15th, 2011 Tried popchips once, they were meh. Oreos for the win! >:D Reply April 15th, 2011 ;0 Reply Christa April 15th, 2011 I never tried pop chips but, oreos are good. Reply Lindsey April 16th, 2011 I feel sorry for those of you who have not yet discovered popchips. They are scrumdelyicious! And unbelievably, they are also a healthy snack. Impossible but true. Reply Wine Traveler April 16th, 2011 Can you say ballot stuffing? Popchips are so awesome this should be a no brainer Oreo should be a close 2nd Reply Wine Traveler April 16th, 2011 Obvious cheating here as Oreos didn’t pull this many votes in weeks. We know popchips is better and Oreos suck since they took out the lard. Reply Jodeen April 16th, 2011 Yummy Popchips!! Reply Jerry April 16th, 2011 What are pop chips? Reply andrea April 16th, 2011 what the F is popchips anyways? i love my oreos, they they r just like me black N white!!!! Reply anon April 16th, 2011 I’ve never heard of popchips before, but I’ve been eating oreos my whole life. I can eat two boxes, no problem. Also; cookies and cream icecream and chocolate bars. Made with oreo. Oreo cake. Giant oreos. Peanutbutter, inside out, mint, holiday, and they’re all good. No one in my house ever says “man, I could really go for some popchips” but I hear that about oreos all the time. I’m a snack food junkie and oreos have always been my favorite, and I’ve tried mainstream, store brand, my mom’s healthfood snacks. I would even eat oreos before most home made cookies. Sandwich cookies are delicious, and oreo makes the best ones… I wish they made lemon ones though…. Reply Jessica April 16th, 2011 I LOVE Oreos! Oreos kick butt. Reply Scott April 16th, 2011 Fun idea! This reminds me of what one grocery store chain– local to Northern California– is doing, expect they’re taking the Easter candy angel: http://www.savemart.com/candybowl They’re taking votes on Facebook and updating the bracket on their website. It’s fun to see aggregated opinions on these things. Reply SUDSGUY April 17th, 2011 All the Oreo “fans” are just Nabisco employee ballot stuffing douches. Reply Leslie April 18th, 2011 Double stuffed Oreos are the best! Reply geneva April 19th, 2011 oreos are the best Reply Owen April 20th, 2011 Yeah!!! get the hell out popchips and bring in the OREOS!!!! NOTHING can beat an oreo! Reply Nick April 21st, 2011 *sigh* oreos? really!? just another sign that america is obese. popchips all the way!!! Reply Leslie April 21st, 2011 What are these popchips you speak of? I have to find some of these, pronto. I loved the blog. As a new blogger and someone who just wrote about condiments as her latest post – I stumbled across this website. Very entertaining and an easy, fun read. I’ll be back! Reply Rogan June 4th, 2012 I know I’m late but here’s what I think. Even though popchips seem good, they are overrated and should NOT have made it this far. I mean, it beat America’s most famous and best-selling chip Lay’s, it beat the soft, variety-packed, salty Pringles, and it even beat the triangular, sturdy, and spice-packed Doritos. That sucks. Weep for the children! Also, I think Fig Newtons should’ve beat Tollhouse to get in the Sweet 16, and I even think that they should’ve beat MILANO. That’s how much I like them. I mean, if you’re asked to name a fruity cookie, you’ll instantly think Fig Newtons. And Goldfish should’ve made it into the final four due to its fun shape, it always smiles back, and its flavors. Pretzel, ranch, cheddar, chocolate, vanilla, s’mores, Parmesan, honey, and even PIZZA. Reply « Older Comments Leave a Reply Cancel Reply Your email address will not be published.
