Like the label says it is "Highly Underrated." I usually don't like banana flavored anything except for the fruits themselves but I make an exception for Banana Gelato and Bananas Foster. Pair either of those with some Scuro and you are right up in the sky floating on a cloud. Our Chocolate Banana is amazing as well but you really need to give the pure banana and pure chocolate a try and then you can mix them up yourself.

Cavendish Banana's (which is most of what you find in the US) are all genetically engineered clones. Natural, wild bananas actually have large, hard, marble-like seeds inside them making them very difficult to eat. They are usually also smaller and less sweet than what we are used to leaving less reward for the hard work of eating them.

I mentioned in my last post that banana's are the most radioactive fruit. They are actually also used as a unit, called a BED or banana equivalent dose, for measuring the amount of radiation a person has absorbed. It is arguably not a very good comparison because our bodies maintain homeostasis and you don't gain more radioactivity by eating more banana's. So radioactive though they may be don't be worried that they will start making you glow green.

I will leave you with this, my favorite scene from Beetlejuice:
