But as luck would have it the item was discontinued . I can't understand why they would discontinue such a great dessert. As the saying goes if it ain't broke don't fix it. Any way in order to satisfy our graving ; I gathered all our favorites , apples , cheese, ice cream , caramel , snickers and waffle bowl . And , walla !, I created My Big Fat Apple Buster.
