Peanut Butter Banana Shake SOLD
Back in the 80s my parents moved us from one part of Texas into the deep east Texas piney woods. As usual my siblings and I were excited about the relocation. Last Days Ministries (Keith Green) had their headquarters in this region as did several other cutting edge (at the time) Christian singers and mission-orient organization such as YWAM. On one of the properties was a restaurant and they served Peanut Butter Banana Milkshakes. I had never heard of them before. I recall trying to wrap my mind around any flavor that surpassed the ubiquitous vanilla, strawberry or vanilla, standard fare at most shake joints. And it's not that I even liked them, peanut butter and banana both being somewhat lower on the totem pole of appealing flavors; it was the juxtaposition of novelties. I did fall in love, with the music of Keith Green, though. A fan to this day!
