We review EVERY booth, so we have our favorite snacks from almost EVERY booth, but how do you pick one booth over the others? Well, we challenged you to do it for us, with our EPCOT Food and Wine Booth Bracket Challengeand the Round 1 results are in!

First up, we made you choose between the impossible: Japan vs. China! Japan always brings some unique items, like last year’s Shrimp Hot Dog, while China traditionally has crowd-pleasers, meaning long lines. Authentication 68% of our readers chose Japan, though! China only got 32% of your vote.

Next up is The Alps vs. Germany. Now, we love The Alps, because CHEESE, but Germany has that Schinkennudeln, which is basically a German macaroni and CHEESE. TOUGH CHOICE. But 61% of our readers chose Germanywith The Alps getting just 39% of the vote.

So what did you vote for when we pitted Brazil against Mexico? Brazil has that delicious crispy pork belly and cheese bread, but Mexico has been a guest favorite (the lines at the Mexico booth throughout the festival prove it). So it’s no huge surprise that Mexico won this contest with 71% of the vote — Brazil only got 29%.

Okay, so this one might’ve been tricky because we realize there are guests who don’t realize that Refreshment Port and Refreshment Outpost are two different locations. But Refreshment Port usually brings it with the poutine, while Refreshment Outpost usually brings one dish (and sometimes Dole Whip). This one was close, but Refreshment Outpost edged out the competition with 51% of the votewhile Refreshment Port got 49%.

Next up is Appleseed Orchard vs. Shimmering Sips. Appleseed Orchard is all about fresh apple snacks and drinks, while Shimmering Sips serves up the bubbly! Shimmering Sips takes home the prize in this round with 53%while Shimmering Sips is at 47%.

The next contest is between Flavors From Fire and The Swanky Saucy Swine. All we’re saying is that we’re fans of the Corned Beef dish at Flavors of Fire, but The Swanky Saucy Swine serves up BBQ pork flavors. When we tallied the votes, 65% of our readers chose Flavors From Firewhile 35% chose The Swanky Saucy Swine.

The next one was a tough one, too: we pitted France vs. Italy. Truly, how dare we ask you to choose between French cuisine and Italian cuisine? But we did, and you were torn. However, Italy came in first with 53% of your votewhile France got 47%.

Next up is Canada vs. Belgium. We think maybe that Cheese Soup in Canada swayed the vote here, because Canada won with 63% of the votewhile Belgium got 37%.
