Why do we use only Vanilla in the Competitive Wave?
It's to be fair. Not all flavors "temp" or thaw at the same rate. Someone eating Peanutbutter Swirl may find solid, frozen masses at the same time and temp a vanilla eater is almost drinking a shake. If everyone has the same, generall liked flavor, the "temp" time for all participants is the same rate. Make sense now?
