Now, I could eat Jello Pudding Pops all day long and not get sick of them. I'm not kidding, I had at least 2 boxes in my freezer at all times...until they mysteriously disappeared off the shelves (jerks!). Oh geez, I got sidetracked. Anyway, I'm browsing, not seeing anything remotely crave-worthy, so I decide to stop at the Ben & Jerry's section.
Ben & Jerry's doesn't usually disappoint. I think it's safe to say that they're the most creative out of all ice cream producers. I mean chocolate covered potato chips in ice cream? Cannoli flavored ice cream? Smores ice cream? Sugar Plum ice cream? Peanut Butter & Jelly ice cream? Those kind of flavors are a risk to make, and Ben & Jerry's is the only one that I know who'll make them.
So here I am at the Ben & Jerry's section. I'm wanting something new, and not chocolatey (what's wrong with me?!). I'm just about to walk away and then....I see it. Banana Cream Pie.
I don't know what drew me to it. I don't even like bananas! True, I do like banana flavored things, like banana popsicles or banana pudding - just not actual bananas. (I'm weird, I know.)
It's incredible, you guys. It's got a sweet banana base and crammed to the brim with pastry swirls, marshmallow chunks & this glorious chewy, salty pie crust. I don't know how they got the pie crust in there without it being soggy, but they did. The marshmallow swirl evokes kind of a banana split feel while the pastry swirl & pie crust remind me of a cream puff. It's just so good!
What sucks, though, is that it's "limited batch". That means it will only be here for a short time. It's also only available at Wal-Mart. I may or may not have 2+ pints of it hidden in my freezer at this very moment....
