Poll Results

Poll 716: Carrot cake or carob cake?

Total votes: 617

Carrot cake: 354 (57.4%)
The Allosaurus: 235 (38.1%)  
Carob cake: 28 (4.5%)

Judging from the comments in the forums, a lot of people had no idea what carob even is. I'll let Sandra Boynton explain in this quote from her book Chocolate: The Consuming Passion:

Carob is a brown powder made from the pulverized fruit of a Mediterranean evergreen. Some consider carob an adequate substitute for chocolate because it has some similar nutrients (calcium, phosphorus), and because it can, when combined with vegetable fat and sugar, be made to approximate the colour and consistency of chocolate. Of course, the same arguments can as persuasively be made in favour of dirt.

My idea with the poll was to have a choice between two cakes made with "healthy" ingredients, and the almost homophony of their names was too good to pass up. And I threw in The Allosaurus because what the heck, it's been ages since he was an option in a poll question. It seems he's well and truly more popular than the evil carob.

I think I've also emboldened the hack-in voter brigade, as this time we received votes for:

  • Banana cake - 2 votes
  • Parrot cake - 1 vote
  • ^cake (caret cake) - 1 vote
  • ˇcake (caron cake) - 1 vote
  • Crabcake - 1 vote
  • 🦀cake - 1 vote
