Did you know that November marks Banana Pudding Lovers Month? That’s right, a whole month dedicated to the love of banana pudding! It was started by the Rodger’s family of Rodgers’ Banana Pudding Sauce as a way of re-creating childhood memories. And while banana “trees” may not live in the continental U.S., this month-long celebration is simply too good to pass up on.
