The Most Outrageous Cheesecake Factory Flavors: A HuffPost Deathmatch (VOTE)

There's no denying that a meal at The Cheesecake Factory is a decadent experience. With plates four times the size of our stomachs and a menu featuring burgers stuffed with mac and cheese, we all know what we're getting into when we dine out at this chain restaurant. And let's not forget the cheesecakes. While a classic cheesecake is always available, their menu of 30 some flavors gets way more creative than that -- and indulgent too.

The Cheesecake Factory has made adding candy and cake to already rich cheesecake an everyday kind of dessert. Their flavors are beyond decadent; they've traversed into outrageous. We're not saying that these cheesecakes don't taste good -- they're amazing -- but we think it's time to call a spade a spade and name one of them king of the most gut-busting cheesecake flavors. Vote in the deathmatch to speak your mind. (And look below for a quick description of the crazy contenders.)

Here's how the The Cheesecake Factory Deathmatch voting will go down:

Round One voting opens at 9:00am Eastern, August 27. Wednesday, August 28th at 12:00am Eastern, Round Two begins. Thursday, August 29th at 12:00am Eastern, you'll be able to vote in Round Three. Friday morning, August 30th, we'll announce which Cheesecake Factory flavor is the all-time worst.
