A good friend of mine — a Chicagoland native — recently moved to the South, and relayed an experience on Facebook that made me smile.
He was looking for a banana and asked a woman at a fast food counter if they had any. Her reply?
“We have a banana pudding flavored doughnut.”
Now, it took my friend’s non-Southern brain a while to process this bit of information, but the banana pudding lover in me was PSYCHED.
Banana pudding is one of the greatest desserts on the planet. (They attempt to make it where I live now, but you have to go to the deep South to get the real thing.)
While I’m not the biggest fan of doughnuts as a rule, COME ON —
Ya gotta appreciate their ingenuity!!

I rarely eat donuts.
I like them — the Krispy Kreme variety — but they are like eating air. And if I’m going to ingest that much sugar and calories, I’d like to be able to tell that I’ve eaten afterwards.
For those of you who a) find donuts more difficult to resist and b) are looking for a reason to pass them by, perhaps this grocery store’s labeling will inspire you —
Thanks for the laugh, Kara.
