I am confused because I don't seem to find the right idiom, for example:

I have to choose between two things that are generally alike but dissimilar with respect to details.

I have to choose between two scientists (they are alike as they are both scientists) that worked on 2 different topics (thus making them dissimilar).

Which idiom do I use? What I am looking for is an idiom that is the exact opposite of "between the devil and the deep sea."

It was on the tip of my tongue. Please help.

What I am looking for is an idiom that is the exact opposite of "between the devil and the deep sea."

That means, you are spoilt for choices

to be ​unable to ​choose because there are so many ​possible good ​choices
