Pumpkin Road Trip Surprise!: I’m always a little surprised when I come across a hidden pumpkin treasure during the off-season as it is, but to find something on the dessert menu during The Road Trip to End All Road Trips … well, that was just freaking awesome.
Setting the Scene: So there we were, enjoying a late brunch with my family up in Michigan before continuing onward on our 3-week, multi-national road trip, when I spotted her on the little flip-menu behind the salt and pepper rack.  Looking down at my never-ending Breakfast Bowl, I knew that I was going to be absolutely stuffed before dessert even arrived, and yet still, I couldn’t possibly pass up a treat such as this…
To Go, It Is!: With the knowledge that we did have a small cooler in the car that would keep it chilled for at least a few hours, I threw caution justly towards the wind and ordered a slice to go anyways.  It wasn’t until a few hundred miles and a border crossing later that I would finally dig in…
The Verdict: …to find that it was actually pretty tasty!  Granted, I was obviously a little distraught by the discrepancy between the clearly layered promotional photos and what was actually brought to the table, but the flavor was still rich and creamy, and ultimately made for a great dessert after having dinner at some random Subway as we made our way across the desolate wasteland that is Canada.
Recommend It?: To date Bob Evans has maintained a solid record in the pumpkin department, and I’m happy to report that this little treat continues on with that tradition.  I’m still waiting to sample that Pumpkin French Toast that I spotted a year or two ago on their menu, though…
