My Thoughts:

One of my sweets weaknesses has been Krispy Kreme donuts.  Since trying them a few years back down South, I was hooked.  And, then when we moved to CT and saw one at the local casino, I knew I was in trouble. :-)  Even though my husband and I don't go as often to the casino, when we do, we make sure to park in the garage that leads you to the Krispy Kreme store on the way into the casino.  And, like a kid in a candy store, I can't help but look to see if their "hot donuts" sign is lit up 

Either way, the smell of fresh glazed donuts lures us in and we always walk away with a dozen assorted donuts.   :-)  But, like I said, now that we have the girls, we don't have the luxury we used to, to enjoy a night out at the casino.  So, when a craving for Krispy Kreme donuts hits, I head to my local grocery store and pick up an assortment of Krispy Kreme products to enjoy. :-)  

It must have been hard on my husband while I was pregnant with the girls, as I always craved Krispy Kreme, and even had him drive me to the casino late at night on a few occasions, just for donuts, or hit up our local 24-hour supermarket to satisfy my sweet tooth and cravings. :-)

So, when I heard the other day that Saturday, March 2nd, is National Banana Creme Pie Day, I first thought, Mmm, sounds tasty, and then wondered why I didn't know about it earlier.  Then, the news got even sweeter, as I found out that the folks at Krispy Kreme would be offering a limited edition Glazed Banana KREME Pie, in honor of this national observance.  These pies are only available in participating mass merchants, grocery and convenience stores, while supplies last.  Thankfully, I don't have to track down these tasty pies, as I was sent two today to try out.  Mmm, were they good.  Yes, I know that I am on a diet, but I couldn't resist -- it is National Banana Cream Pie Day coming up and all. :-)  The girls even got in on the fun and helped me with the taste test after lunch, as we split one pie.  You should have saw them both licking their fingers to get up every last drop of the banana KREME.  And, just like Mommy, they loved sucking the banana KREME out of the glazed pie, before devouring the crusty pie outside. :-)  I surprised myself in that I didn't sneak and have the second pie sent.  Instead, I saved it to share with my husband, who also loved it!

So, when you are out and about this Saturday, why not take a few minutes to stop in at your favorite  grocery or convenience store and see if they have these limited edition Glazed Banana KREME pies from Krispy Kreme available, and join the masses in celebrating National Banana Cream Pie Day? :-)
