Does your banana need protection?

Ribbed for your pleasure! :biggrin::blink:

I think yellow is taken care of with the clear one--the yellow of banana shows through making it look, well, yellow.

I prefer the banana guard, and they do seem to be catching on in Japan. The last time I was at Tokyu Hands, they were running low on them. Interestingly, I've never seen any of my students or anyone else bring a banana to school (other than me, that is), which makes me wonder who's buying them...

From the list of outlets on the website, it would appear bicyclists and golfers!

Even in this fast paced economy, these products create the possibility of eating fresh fruit whenever the consumer wishes.

Uh... huh.

*snicker*

Kim, I'm right there with you. I'm not sure I ever made it past age 7, though. Banana Bunker indeed.

There was a similar product mentioned on a thread here perhaps two years ago.

As I recall, it was not offerend in colors - just translucent plastic.

"There are, it has been said, two types of people in the world. There are those who say: this glass is half full. And then there are those who say: this glass is half empty. The world belongs, however, to those who can look at the glass and say: What's up with this glass? Excuse me? Excuse me? This is my glass? I don't think so. My glass was full! And it was a bigger glass!" Terry Pratchett

Mr. Kim says that he would like to buy one, but they aren't big enough for his bananas  :laugh:  :laugh:  :laugh: !

You know this thread is going to be deleted, right?

But it's very relevant!

When the banana guard first came out in Japan, one of the news shows did a test using 20 different bananas of various shapes and sizes. The only ones that didn't fit, were the deformed bananas (their odd shapes wouldn't fit into the guard) and what I think was really a plantain (it was too big).

So...unless Mr. Kim is carrying around a deformed banana, or a plantain, I'm quite certain the banana guard would be fine for his bananas. :biggrin:
