If you live in the greater New York City area and are not familiar with Magnolia Bakery's Banana Pudding, I seriously have no idea what you've been doing with yourself. How? Why? When? Personally, I'm a salty over sweet kind of person - but still, I stand defenseless in front of a cup of this confectionary crack.
This Valentine's Day, I am begging you to ditch the last minute drug store box of chocolates and get your special someone a treat they'll actually cherish (and then immediately hate you for because there's no way this stuff isn't going directly to the hips, you know?). In the spirit of love, Magnolia will be dishing out a Red Velvet version of their signature sugary slop, available both in-stores (starting 2/10) and online.
As they say, roses are red, violets are blue, Red Velvet Banana Pudding is legit the best gift to give, short of jewelry and handbags.
