The results are in! The votes have been tabulated! A winner has been declared!

With 68% of the vote, Team Applesauce has won the title of Ultimate Latke Topping!

Join us next year as Applesauce looks to defend the championship. But will a new contender enter the competition? Avocado latkes, anyone?

Who will battle next? Chocolate vs. Cinnamon Babka? Apricot vs. Prune Hamantaschen?

Gefilte fish vs. Chopped liver? Stay tuned...
