Who Won Every Ridiculous Food-Related March Madness Bracket

From Tony the Tiger to Krispy Kreme, these are the victors of the most pointless contests on the Internet.


With the close of the NCAA tournament, the season of bracketology has come to an end. There will be no more crying over money lost and the disappointing chokes that ruined your picks until the return of March in 2014. But before we let this moment pass once and for all, we thought we would look back at all the food-related brackets that were painstakingly crafted on the Internet for literally no reason at all.

Monumental victories like Arby's over Chick-Fil-A, and Tony the Tiger over Toucan Sam, should not go unheralded. Some of these contests—like a quest to crown the best type of meat—represent food-writing trolling at its most insipid. Others are more creative and well-wrought, like Vice's at-times hilarious fast-food bracket, and Paste's comprehensive tasting of American IPAs.

Here, we present to you nine food-and-drink brackets and their winners—find out if your favorite discontinued snack made it to the Final Four, and what type of martini is the best type of martini according to some folks on the 'net.

    Not much seems very confusing about the piece, but kind of hard to take this critique seriously anyway when you don’t know how to spell the chef’s name correctly when it’s IN the graphic that you’re showing (“Geoffrey” not “Jeffrey”). Also, here’s the link to the artist, which you’d have found if you actually read the pieces. http://society6.com/mmarsicano/Symon-Vs-Zakarian

    You seem to be confusing the bracket So Good ran with previous years. This was the 5th annual year with a bracket for So Good, which, this year, was Discontinued Foods. The Meat Madness, Snack Madness, Candy Madness and Fast Food Brackets you mention were in the previous four years.
