Ryke’s Bakery discovered half-way through their 6th annual Super Bowl Cookie Poll that they were using the phrase “Super Bowl” without permission from the NFL. Quick thinking from Renee Rouwhorst put a poll question to the Ryke’s Facebook fans to help the bakery rename their annual cookie poll. Flooded with great names it was hard to pick!
Top three choices were down to “Grid Iron Cookie Face Off”, The “Ultimate Cookie SmackDown” with the tagline “Get Ready to Crumble”, and “Ravens vs 49er’s Cookie Poll” (names would change annually.).
After many votes throughout the day, popular vote on Facebook was the “Ultimate Cookie SmackDown – Get Ready to Crumble” – submitted by Amanda Flynn. Amanda wins a dozen cookies in her favorite team colors while Ryke’s wins a fabulous new name for their annual Cookie Poll!
Cookies in 49er’s and Raven colors are still available through Saturday, February 2. The Poll currently shows that Ravens are in the lead – only time will tell if the “Ultimate Cookie SmackDown” will predict the winner of the Big Game!!!
