For many years, we sold a version of this sweet treat that featured whole bananas covered with rich, dark chocolate. Then, a few years back, it occurred to us that bites might be easier to eat. And then it occurred to us that if we drenched slices of banana in that same dark Belgian chocolate, there would be more chocolate. Snap. Decision made.
Trader Joe's Gone Bananas are slices of kluai hom bananas grown in Thailand, completely covered in smooth, dark Belgian Chocolate and frozen. That's it. Each eight ounce box contains about 20 banana slices - they're individually frozen so they're easy to eat one at a time. This doesn't mean, however, that you won't eat more than one. You will. As a quick snack, blended into smoothies, or alongside ice cream for a newfangled take on a classic banana split. Fruit covered with dark chocolate is a good thing - especially when it's Trader Joe's Gone Bananas. We're selling each eight ounce box for $1.99, every day - also a good thing.
