The Tasting Poll: The Results are IN!!
Last Monday I posted a poll and put the power of which two new foods I should taste in the hands of you, the readers. I’m excited to report that it was our most successful poll to date here at TGT30 with a total of 48 votes! Thanks so much to everyone who took the time to weigh in on this highly important decision. 🙂
I checked out PollDaddy.com (who kindly facilitates our polls) for the official results and thought I’d share them with you so you’d know that I wasn’t lying about the winners….. (p.s. for a better view of the graphic, just click on the photo and you’ll get the actual-size version on another screen.)
As you can see, the clear front-runner is Rhubarb Pie with 31.25% of the vote (15 votes.) In second place, but still earning a spot on the taste-list, is Kale with 12 or 25% of the vote. Rice Pudding and Brussel Sprouts didn’t make the cut at only 10 and 8 votes each, respectively. There were 3 write-in votes, but none of them were repeats, so at one vote each, those guys didn’t have a chance.
So, THANK YOU ALL again for voting! It’s always more fun to have friends help with important decisions. 🙂 With only 6 weeks to go, I’m sure I’ll be posting about my Rhubarb Pie and Kale tasting experiences soon….and then you can all be proud knowing you helped make them happen.
p.s. in other new-food-related news, I ate a grilled eggplant sandwich (the special of the day) last Friday at Sloco, my favorite sandwich shop which happens to be around the corner from my house in 12th South. It was super yummy. This means that I’ve now tasted eggplant twice, and loved it both times. Eggplant for the win!
