I love bananas. I mean, who doesn’t? The bad thing with bananas is that they brown so quickly after being peeled. Seriously fast! This tends to shy me away from eating them because I feel that I don’t get to take my time like I do with other fruit. I don’t want to scarf my food down in two seconds. Medical reasons prevent me from doing it, not that I would want to anyways. Diana’s Bananas has come up with a tasty way to eat your bananas….frozen!
About Diana’s Bananas
Diana’s Bananas started in the mid-80’s, as the delicious result of an inspired whim. There in our booth at The Taste of Chicago, the city’s yearly open-air food fest, we hit upon the idea of freezing a fresh, ripe banana and giving it a bath in delicious chocolatier-grade melted bar chocolate. We each took a bite and passed it around. Our taste buds leapt for joy… and we sprung into action.
We sent our team to the local supermarkets and cleaned them out of bananas. Around the clock, we melted chocolate, peeled bananas, inserted sticks, froze the bananas and dunked them in chocolate… oh, and we also sold the living daylights out of them. Ten days and 25,000 bananas later, we knew we had a hit on our hands.
Let’s face it, in a business like ours you can’t take yourself too seriously. Just look at our packaging, or this website, for that matter. There are pictures of chimps all over the place. But there is one thing we’re unwaveringly serious about—producing the world’s best chocolate-dipped frozen banana™.
What They Offer

- Banana Bites: slices of bananas covered in dark and milk chocolate

I absolutely LOVE these! It’s like I am eating an ice cream bar, but it’s fruit and it’s good for me! There is a good amount of chocolate coating, so I don’t feel cheated at all. According to their website, these are only around 4 Weight Watchers points. Diana’s Bananas are a great way for me to convince my kids to eat more fruit. They feel like they are eating a treat, not something healthy for them. For me, the bites are the best, as I can just grab a slice as I am getting work done around the house. The bananas are yummy, and they are not brown at all. The bananas look fresh, like they were just peeled and cut. I am very impressed with these, and we will continue to purchase them!
