New contest to decide Cleveland’s Best Sinful Dessert begins now with your nominations

CLEVELAND, Ohio – We all have our reasons for indulging in a decadent dessert -- whether celebrating or for comfort after a hard day.

Today, cleveland.com is launching a new contest to find Cleveland’s Best Sinful Dessert and we need your help, as it begins with reader nominations.

Now through Oct. 7 at noon we’re accepting nominations for desserts served throughout our seven-county Greater Cleveland region. You can nominate your go-to dessert in the form below, which is fast and easy to submit. Please be sure to include the specific dessert at the bottom of the form.

It doesn’t matter if it is a five-star restaurant or the bakery down the street, the local ice cream emporium or a sweet bite from a candy shop. Tell us what your heart desires and where you get it.

How Cleveland’s Best Sinful Dessert contest will work:

Send in your nominations between now and Oct. 7 at noon. Remember to tell us what your favorite treat is and where you get it.

The dessert must be from a business located within the seven-county coverage area of Cuyahoga, Lake, Geauga, Summit, Medina, Lorain and Portage counties. Also, no national chains; all locations must be within Ohio.

An online poll in which readers will determine the 20 finalists will begin Oct. 11. Voting will run through Oct. 18 at 9 a.m.

After you have chosen the Top 20, Cleveland’s Best reporters will visit each establishment and taste test the 20 treats vying for Cleveland’s Best Sinful Dessert in late October and early November. We’ll also sample a few other concoctions the contestant whips up to feature more sugary delights.

You can come along to the 20 visits, either by joining us in-person or by watching live video on cleveland.com’s Facebook page. We’ll publish the schedule of our 20 visits by Oct. 22.

New for this contest: Cleveland’s Best reporters will determine the winner from their taste tests, as well as the Top 10 and the Best of the Rest. We will announce the results in a surprise visit to the winning business on Facebook Live on Nov. 13.

We also will publish plenty of photos, videos and details of the delicious sweet bites we are served, as well as several superlative shoutouts for especially yummy components of all the desserts we are served – like Best Whipped Cream, Best Homemade Caramel, Best Chocolate Dessert. 

Please join the fun and nominate that decadent treat you crave the most.
