๐ŸŒ Is it Banana Pudding or isn't it? ๐ŸŒ

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...




Pardonnez-moi, madame. I will be able to answer zees question about ze Hasty pudding. It ees a... how do you say... a mush made from meal, such as ze cornmeal or wheat. We chefs cook it with ze water or ze milk. I, of course, add especial spices to make ze pudding delectable. Ooh la la!


Oh yes, Dearie. I mean, Chef. I mean, Chef Dearie. You reminded me that my sweet great-great-grandmother used to make me Hasty pudding when I was just a wee thing.

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!

(sheesh)



Excuse me, Professor Bananington. As we are about to run out of space for this column, allow me to wrap things up here. I'd like to thank all the contributors to this post on, uh, pudding and pets.





Ahem




And most particularly to Professor Bananington, for his excellent exposรฉ.





You're welcome.

I hate the fact that they or getting away from natural ingredients. On the other side of the story, though natural ingredients are getting away from flavor. There is a reason for this. Food is being treated different. Herbicides pesticides, etc. One huge factor that is robbing bananas of their flavor is the way they are harvested. Fruit gains its sugar and flavor in the last week or 2 of its life on the tree. In that time, it is flooded with sugar and all of the natural flavorings. This time on the tree is crucial. If you pull a banana off of the tree that contains these natural flavorings, they taste amazing. Bananas and other fruit are being picked while They are still green. This Does not allow the fruit to receive its natural flavorings and sugar. They are then being stored in warehouses and shipped to the stores green. these ripen in house. I could go on for hours about food. The hormones in meat, etc. I do not want to go to far off subject but you can research it on your own if you like.

This is, unfortunately, true. Commercialized and Big Farming food just isn't food the way Earth intended. Thankfully, there are some initiatives to return to more natural practices, and also areas of the world where they never stopped.

Thanks for stopping by!

Zut alors! Zees is a great honor, and I humbly accept. It is most true, I make ze best Hasty Pudding, what can I say?

Reason number ONE of why I try to cook everything with natural products and by myself, not buying everything in boxes like those. It feels more like you're intoxicating your body than feeding yourself. A big No-No for me. More banana pudding made at home, and less Yellow 5 and Yellow 6 pudding! Because that's what it's in that box, right?

ยท

You're obviously a banana-lover, and don't like fake dyes any more than we do. Yay! Thanks for stopping by, @gellyarenas!
Here's a snack for you:

Thanks so much, @bitsy! The Banana Collective really appreciates it! ๐ŸŒ

Silly, every college student knows that you have to add your own fresh banana slices to the instant pudding mix and then pour it into a bowl lined with Vanilla Wafers for your very own banana pudding just like gramma used to make. ๐Ÿ˜Ž

ยท

Well, that makes a little more sense. But please don't say anything to Professor Bananington... he's a little touchy on the subject of banana pudding. ๐ŸŒ

This is in no way a "payment" for your silence on this matter. Just consider it a snack:
