Well, it was an excellent year for movies…Bohemian Rhapsody, Roma, Black Panther. But let's be real, on Oscar Sunday who's tuning in for the Gaga/Bradley Cooper performance of "Shallow"?🙋🏻Sounds like he won't be going full-on Jackson Maine, but it's Oscar night…anything can happen!
In the spirit of awards season, we thought it would be fun to give out some props to the flavors you all are loving with a capital L. Based on your notes, tweets, grams, and likes, we’re proud to present The First Annual Doughie Awards! 🏆
Let’s skip that awkward song and dance number they always try to make happen and get straight to the fun!
Best Performance by a Duo: Salt N’ Swirl Caramel
Peanut Butta Cup, you were so darn close, with your dark chocolate cookie dough having-peanut butter ribboning self, but Salt N’ Swirl got you in the end. That heady mix of thick, sweet caramel and sugar cookie dough kissed by just a touch of salt was just too delicious to deny. Pick up your swag bag that way, Salt N’ Swirl. Bravo.
Best Use of Actual Movie Concessions: Candy Crush
They say the best performances come from what you know, and if there's one thing you know, Candy Crush, it's how to work…that…candy. I mean, it would be easy for that silky whipped vanilla dough to steal the scene, but the way you work in those sweet, candy-coated milk chocolate pieces shows you're a real pro. Clear some room on that trophy case for one more.
Most Doughlicious Leading Man: Snicker-Dude
What can we say, Snicker-Dude? Once your fans get a taste of your sweet side, everyone just wants to eat you up with a spoon. Cinnamony cookie dough with just a dusting of sugar and spice gets us every time. So, don’t play tough guy with us. Underneath it all, we know you’re just a big softie (who pairs great with vanilla ice cream, fwiw!)
Breakout Star of the Year: Gingerbread Girl
You started out as an instant holiday classic, but we can’t seem to quit you, sweet girl! If we have our way, you’ll be starring in a fourth of July blockbuster with your gingersnap, molasses, and vanilla frosting vibes. Some thought you were a one-hit wonder, but we know you've got the stuff to stay on the scene for a long time. At least until next December.
Lifetime Achievement Award: Chocolate Chip Off The Ol’ Block
We can’t think of a better way to celebrate the 81st anniversary of the chocolate chip cookie than with a nod to our Ol’ Chip! As one of our pioneering flavors, we’ve been through thick and thin (and back to thick and back to thin) together. But once we found just the right consistency, you stole the show and our hearts. You deserve all the love you get, CCOTOB. Make sure you hit all the best parties with those premium Callebaut dark chocolate chips!
Congratulations to all our winners and we’ll be tuning in with you on Sunday to see who steals that show!
