Is There Really a Difference?
A listener said that you can DEFINITELY taste the difference between a Chiquita banana and other brands. Okay...I did my banana homework!
Finding a banana that is NOT a Chiquita is not that easy. But Wal-Mart did have some brand I had never heard of.
Fyffes? Whatever...it's NOT Chiquita.
So, I blindfolded myself, had Lou feed me some banana (stop it!).
As hard as I tried to get the same sized and ripened banana, you can tell that the Fyffe on is gigantic.
At first try, the girth gave it away. I knew which banana I was eating without even trying. So, at second wack, we cut it up and here are my results:
Fyffe: tastes like a banana
I didn't see a huge difference, but they were slightly different. So there you have it. A professional banana taste test that probably won't stop you from buying whatever banana is on sale where you shop for other food.
