Germantown Commissary's Banana Pudding




It’s safe to say that Germantown Commissary is known for their fantastic BBQ, but their big secret is that their desserts are equally amazing. From lemon icebox pie to coconut cake, I’ve heard mumblings of how everything is a must-try. The biggest talk revolved around the homemade banana pudding ($2.50).

All I could think of when I tried the banana pudding for the first time was, oh my gosh… creamy amazingness! Is amazingness even a word? Who cares! The banana pudding was thick and not runny, just how it should be. The vanilla wafers are soft and melt in your mouth. The wafer becomes soggy and doesn’t dry out on your tongue! The hint of vanilla from the wafers goes perfectly together with the sweetness of the big slices of banana that sneak up on your spoon. The whipped cream on top was light and airy.

Do yourself a favor. The next time you hit up Germantown Commissary, make sure you don’t skip dessert!
