I grew up eating "pistachio fluff," a blend of pistachio pudding, whipped cream, pineapple, marshmallows, and crushed pistachio nuts (aka Watergate salad), at all kinds of family potlucks and picnics. For me, it's got all of that childhood nostalgia that bologna or circus cookies have. It was among my favorites as a kid because it contains copious amounts of whipped cream, which is officially my favorite food.
So I was a little shocked when I learned that gerg had never even heard of it before this weekend.
Am I alone? Did other people eat this weird, somewhat disturbing, but totally tasty concoction growing up?
My childhood passion for pistachio-based creaminess has been known to entice adulthood consumption of: Toucan Custard's Pistachio Pecan custard, Baskin Robbin's Pistachio Almond ice cream, Ben & Jerry's Pistachio Pistachio, and plain ol' pistachio pudding pie.
