Okay. Let me get this straight.
This banana pudding:
has absolutely no BANANAS in it!
Here's the list of ingredients from the manufacturer's own website:
INGREDIENTS: SUGAR, DEXTROSE (FROM CORN), MODIFIED CORNSTARCH, CONTAINS LESS THAN 2% OF NATURAL AND ARTIFICIAL FLAVOR, SALT, DISODIUM PHOSPHATE AND TETRASODIUM PYROPHOSPHATE (FOR THICKENING), MONO- AND DIGLYCERIDES (PREVENT FOAMING), YELLOW 5, YELLOW 6, ARTIFICIAL COLOR, BHA (PRESERVATIVE).
What the -- ?!?
Are they counting "Yellow 5 and Yellow 6" as banana? Those are dyes to make something look banana-ish. What is this world coming to?
I'm with you, Dearie. Back in my day, we made pudding with the ingredient in the title... Banana pudding had bananas in it. Chocolate pudding had chocolate in it. Vanilla pudding had vanilla in it. Hasty pudding had, er, um...
But it wasn't very good, and I didn't want to eat it. So I would slip it under the table to her dog, whose name was... what was that dog's name? I've totally forgotten it. Professor Bananington, did you have any pets when you were growing up?
With all due respect, Gramnana, this is MY post, and it's about banana pudding, not about childhood pets!
And most particularly to Professor Bananington, for his excellent exposé.
