Best Concrete St. Louis 2005 - Banana Pudding
With all due respect to Ted Drewes -- Your custard is legendary, sir/Your mix-ins divine/But sometimes we're just not up for the trek to south city, sir/And the long wait in line -- Mr. Wizard's knows how to make a damn good concrete. The Banana Pudding is a deceptively simple concoction, blending vanilla custard with sliced bananas and crushed-up vanilla wafers. The flavor is overwhelmingly banana-creamy, but the 'nillas give the treat texture and structure -- attributes any truly great concrete requires. With so much fruit, dairy and homemade-tasting goodness packed into one cup, it's hard to believe this thing isn't actually good for you.
