The Best Thing I Ever Ate #582

So I'm browsing through Wal-Mart in the "aisle that shall not be named" (aka the frozen dessert aisle) and so far I'm unimpressed.  Since Popsicle took my favorite frozen treat away - the Jello Pudding Pop - I've been lacking in the OMG dessert department.

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....
