Maple Walnut Spice

When the custard calendar came out for February, we wanted to try all of them except for Wednesday - maple walnut spice. It just sounded like an oatmeal flavor to us! After months with pumpkin pie and other flavors that tasted remarkably similar to pumpkin pie, we weren't sure we needed another one that was just a custard with some cinnamon spice. But then I was reading on chowhound about this month's custard flavors and someone said the spice was more of a roasted spice, like a smoky peppery type spice. We figured we might as well give it a try since it wouldn't be yet another cinnamon flavor.

It was OK. It wasn't a cinnamon spice one, and it was a smokier spice, but it was just OK. Neither of us felt that strongly about it. The custard included walnuts and had some interesting flavors. It wasn't bad but it wasn't anything great either. This was another "last chance to try it" custards so we couldn't try it again even if we wanted to, but I don't think we would be going back for it. Just like the bananas foster. But before you think all the custards this month were just "meh" ... there were some good ones. Stay tuned and you'll see! These two were the low points of the month (for us).
