For years, I frequented Pizzeria Uno not for their deep dish pizza, but for their amazing Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup dessert!
The Peanut Butter Cup embodies everything that is right with America. They take a large peanut butter cup shell, replace the bottom with a crushed chocolate cookie crust, fill it up with creamy peanut butter, and top it off with two scoops of vanilla ice cream, and drizzle the whole plate with chocolate and peanut butter sauce. Yum!
But when I went to order my favorite dessert one day, I was told that it was taken off the menu, and they were unsure if it would return.
The reason for the removal? They had moved to a 100% trans-fat free menu, and this dessert no longer made the cut. As such, Pizzeria Uno lost me as a customer, and we didn’t go back for over 2 YEARS!
Until this weekend. Someone told me that they had brought back the Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup dessert, and I had to try it and see if it was as good as it used to be.
Unfortunately, the new dessert pales in comparison to the original.. The chocolate has a somewhat weird taste to it, the cookie crust isn’t firm at all, and they really skimp on the peanut butter now. If the old dessert was a 10, this new one is maybe a 6..
As such, we won’t be going back to Uno anytime soon.. Time to find a recipe online so I can make it myself.
