I know restaurant and fast food places have limited time items for us to try all the time. This one my daughter sent me a text about sometime last week. Way before the special even hit the store.

To say we are excited is an understatement and here is why. First the announcement was that Sonic was introducing a new banana pudding shake. Their description is:

It's creamy banana pudding flavored real ice cream blended with fresh bananas, NILLA Wafers, whipped topping and a cherry on top.

Now ok it sounds good but why is this such good news? Well when my daughter was growing up we would take many trips to Dairy Queen for a Blizzard. We always would get the Banana Cream Pie Blizzard. It was our favorite.

It was on the menu for years. Then just like that it was gone. We have yet to find something we loved as much. Then this news came out. I did some research to let her know they would start being served at Sonic for a limited time. A Banana Pudding Shake. It could be the answer we have been looking for.

So when tried my daughter said it was good. A bit on the rich side and very banana-y. I wanted to know if it tasted like the Blizzard she remembered growing up. She said it did a little but she still loved the Blizzard more. This is something she would try again. So to me that is a win.

I mean this has been years in the making. Trying to find that allusive substitute for the one thing we loved at Dairy Queen. Maybe Sonic has found a way to make something close. The only thing that bums me out is the fact that they will only be around this month.
