In celebration of the Carnival season, Haydel’s Bakery is asking king can fans (i.e. everyone!) to show their “Flavorhood” pride and cast their vote for their favorite flavor at www.flavorhoods.com. Enter your neighborhood and vote for your favorite flavor and watch live as New Orleans neighborhoods fill up with their favorite fillings.
- Does Central City champion cream cheese?
- Does Jefferson Parish prefer praline pecan?
- Is Uptown actually into Da Parish king cake?
- Is strawberry cream cheese the filling that fills those in the Treme with joy?
With almost 2,000 votes rolling in like the King’s Float of Bacchus down St. Charles Avenue, Haydel’s iconic traditional king cake reigns supreme across the New Orleans Metro Area with 29% of votes. Haydel’s cream cheese king cake isn’t far behind with 26% of votes.
Remaining votes vary with strawberry cream cheese, praline pecan and bavarian cream being other New Orleans favorites. Bavarian cream even came in as the top choice of Mid-City and Bayou St. John, while strawberry cream cheese is the favorite in New Orleans East.
The polls are still open -- and coming in with a margin of error of less than 2.5% -- a stat lower than election polls.
With each vote cast, a colorful map representing the prominent filling to create "flavorhoods" across the New Orleans area. This flavorhoods competition is a great reminder of all the flavors that king cake lovers have adopted over the years and the sweet taste of Mardi Gras king cake is hard not to crave this time of year.
