Ali or Tyson…it is the one question that every fan of the sweet science asks. If memory serves this was one of the questions that was debated by the folks in the barbershop in Coming to America. Really it is a question that can’t be answered. You can’t deny that brilliant way in which Ali rewrote the book on the definition of the Heavyweight. Then there was the ferocious force of nature known as Iron Mike. He single handedly rewrote expectations for a power puncher.
As a fan of pugilism – side note, my family has a history in the sport – I appreciate this question and debate. There are many other venues where we have the same debate: Jordan or Kobe (Round ball), Smith or Sanders (greatest Running backs), Federer or Nadal (Tennis), and Mantle or Mays (Baseball). I would like to submit for your consideration…Rod Serling voice and cue the dramatic music…Sweet Potato Pie Waffle or the Peach Cobbler Waffle a la Mode.
Keep in mind for Chef and myself when someone asks us which one we like better it’s like asking us to choose which of our children (Benjamin Button or the Government Twins) we like better. We love them all. And that isn’t just parent speak. So in the case of the waffles – our babies – we definitely can’t make a
difference. The Sweet Potato Pie Waffle born from…you know, I can’t even remember how we got that idea. Chef is a Culinary Savant. However the Peach Cobbler Waffle was born after we had this whole southern gourmet eat your dessert first thing. So we also came up with the Bananas Foster Waffle, Red
Velvet Pancakes, Strawberry Shortcake French Toast, and our latest mad scientist creation the Brownie Obsession Waffle (more to come later). Again I digress; I was talking about Ali v. Tyson.
These two waffles are now engaged in a slugfest in the Wafflecrest as they battle and from here to there all that can be heard are the cries of the masses as they root for their favorites. Some folks are even cheering against and fighting with themselves as they are torn between their own two favorite waffle flavors.
I believe heard somewhere that the most interesting man in the world (you know…stay thirsty my friends) tried the two waffles and could only shake his head as he said, “WOW, I didn’t think it was possible”. I’m just saying. If you haven’t taken the time or had the occasion, I recommend that you make room because the champs are battling for your taste buds.
Life is short…eat something memorable.
