Anyone from Beloit, Wisconsin, please leave the room. . .
All gone? OK. When I lived in Beloit a while back, I went to a lot of bridal showers, baby showers, etc. I could always count on at least three people bringing a dessert made with instant pudding, Cool Whip, and various combinations of other ingredients. It was weird, like a local fetish. After a while, I couldn't stand it any more. Before I moved away, I swore that I would never again eat a dessert based on instant pudding and Cool Whip.
Last week, my cousin (yes, she lives in Beloit) brought what she called a Twinkie Pie to a family picnic. It consisted of Twinkies sliced lengthwise and layered on the bottom, then in layers, vanilla instant pudding, Cool Whip, and chopped Heath bars on top. It was classic Beloit. And, no, I didn't eat it.
I don't mean to offend anyone who likes this sort of thing. It was just that people ALWAYS made those desserts, and after five years there, I had reached my limit.
