The Trader Rater Rating: 8.58

Review Summary: Though we weren't initially sure what to make of these Dried flattened bananas, we found them to be tasty and fun to eat. We'll definitely be back!

Full Review:

Trader Joe’s has an amazing dried fruit and nut section. The options are endless, and if we’re being honest, there’s plenty of stuff we’ve never heard of (Jackfruit??) – but are still dying to try.

Case in point, amongst the staples like dried pineapples, raisins, prunes, and pumpkin seeds, we found a package of Dried Flattened Banana. We weren’t quite sure what to make of this product – it looks kind of like melted bananas that have been left out for too long.

Sure, we’ve had dried banana pieces before, but we’ve never seen them packaged like this before – cut lengthwise and mushed up together. But, heck, we’ll try anything once!

Presentation aside, these were a treat – and definitely a worthwhile purchase.

Turns out the long banana slices (mostly) peel apart cleanly, so you’ve got a bunch of flat, thin banana fruit roll ups. In terms of their taste, they are a bit overripe, but you probably can’t dry bananas and maintain that perfectly ripe banana taste.

As with most dried fruits and nuts, these make for a great, healthy snack, and would be perfect in the classroom, on the trail, or on the road (as long as the driver has someone to pull the slices apart – safety first!). We rate this item a solid buy – we’ll definitely be back!
