Snacktion: Cassandra's Banana Pudding

Posted By on Tue, Feb 3, 2009 at 2:22 PM

Name: Banana Cream & Nilla Wafers

Brand: Cassandra's Wedding Cakes

Origin: Richmond, Ca.

Found at: Le Bayou Cajun & Creole Cafe, 3278 Adeline, Berkeley

Cost: $3.29

Ingredients: Fresh bananas, Banana Cream pudding w/wafers

Calories per serving: Not listed

Why I bought it: I always try banana pudding, and this one is wonderful creamy soothing comfort food, like valium in spoonable form. 

Tasting notes: Firm banana chunks, rich sweet pudding, Nilla wafers on the verge of dissolving into mush, and a little bit of whipped cream -- what's not to like?

Would I buy this again: I usually buy them two at a time, one for now and one for later.

What other blogs/sites thought of it: Nobody seems to have written about Cassandra's Banana Cream & Nilla Wafers, though others tout their Red Velvet cake, purchased on-site at Cassandra's Wedding Cakes at 321 23rd Street in Richmond (510 232-4616), where a phone call elicits the information that they also prepare the banana pudding in large catering sizes. Uh-oh.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
