(And there is a correct answer)
Remember the story, “How Blue Bell turned me into a ‘Nana Pudding Junkie?” We’ll, I just found its rival, TOPS’ Banana Pudding ice cream..
If Blue Bell had their own store, it would mean so much. Since visiting in Upstate New York, I searched high and low for the World’s Best Ice Cream. Apparently, from what I was told, Blue Belk had no immediate plans to expand their product to the northeastern states. Even the grocery chain, Publix, couldn’t be found north. Publix had its own ice cream. So, why can’t Blue Bell? Once a Junkie, always a Junkie.
I’m not just an ice cream junkie, I’m a ‘Nana Pudding junkie. Yeah, I do love ‘Snickers’ ice cream and the occasional French Vanilla ice cream. But Banana Pudding ice cream forces you to either Live it or Hate it.
One night, I walked into TOPS Friendly Market in a hunt for a new guilty pleasure. I had tried and appreciated “Friendly’s” ice cream. Even “Breyer’s” was pretty good. But TOPS was having a sale on its own product. After locating the section, I almost fainted.
There it was! Banana Pudding ice cream, TOPS Premium Banana Pudding ice cream. On Sale! I told myself it couldn’t be that bad…at least it was ‘Premium!’ Then again, if it turned out to taste anything like what I paid for it, I didn’t lose too much.
Once a junkie, Always a Junkie. I was in rehab for four years before I fell off the wagon. TOPS’ Banana Pudding ice cream has turned me out. Strong? I am, but I’m not. I thought I was. All those combined sweetnesses from one carton onto one tablespoon will always be my kryptonite. My self-control depends on supply. At this point, I can demand that the product stay well- stocked. Otherwise, my supplier can turn me on to another.
As long as I can’t find any Banana Pudding ice cream, it can’t find me. But, for now, TOPS is the place I could let change my face.
And walking through the park
Each other’s greatest fan
See the back door after dark
A careful ring
With a special tone
Oh, how you make my heart sing
Why must either one of us be alone
I know he got you
But he doesn’t make your love flow
Believe me when I say this much is true
Your husband doesn’t have to know
The way you slip in and out
Of the things you bought with his card
Make me love what this is all about
Can it get any more hard
Break my back
Make me lose my mind
Never treat you like some halftime snack
The deeper I go, I never know what I’ll find
Keep it tight, and keep it right
I can taste the flavor in the air
Don’t let your head put up a fight
I’ll cherish our time with tender loving care
I love to love you, baby
How else can I let my feelings show
I’ll keep it on the sneak tip, if you want me to
And darling, your husband doesn’t have to know
And if you have any doubt
Go ahead and tell him I’m just a friend
He’s the one with all the clout
But we know how this tale will end
