Trader Joe’s Gone Bananas Review

Well, he finally lost it. Trader Joe’s has gone bananas. After decades of serving his customers with a smile, he finally snapped from all his insanely low prices and the doctor’s couldn’t bring him back to normal. Just kidding, but they do have this delicious frozen snack that I wanted to try.

Trader Joe's Gone Bananas
Not sure if thin mint or banana

It might be funny to drop some of these into a bowl of thin mints and watch reactions. People would be surprised, but like, pleasantly surprised, ya know? At least I would be if I bit into what I thought was a thin mint and it turned out to be a chocolate covered banana. I mean, I like bananas and I like chocolate so why not?

Can confirm, that is banana.

Preparation: Above Average

Bananas themselves are a great source of fiber and dark chocolate isn’t bad either. That’s why these are worth picking up at least once in a while so you have something monkey themed in your freezer. There’s nothing to preparing these outside of finding the little tearing part in the bag of bananas, ripping it open and digging in. They almost seemed too sweet for me, but, they were certainly packed with flavor.
