Lunchbox Banana Saver
Posted by: Meg In: Lunchbox Products
If you love bananas but hate how they easily get bruised or squished in your lunchbox, then the protective Banana Saver is for you. Use in your lunchbox, backpack, or anywhere you want to keep your banana happy and safe.
The plastic container also has a popsicle slot for making your favorite frozen banana pops, and several banana pop recipes are offered on the site for this purpose. My favorite? The Chocolate & You Name It Topping for which I would use dark chocolate chips and slivered almonds. Yum!
We all know that bananas are good for you, with vitamin C, potassium and dietary fiber. However, I didn’t realize until reading their banana fact sheet that bananas have no fat, cholesterol or sodium. Interestingly, the site highlights that some horticulturists believe the banana was the earth’s first fruit. Banana plants have been cultivated since the time of recorded history. One of the first records of bananas dates back to when Alexander the Great first discovered bananas in 327 BC during his conquest of India.
If you are a banana fan, the savers are an inexpensive investment: 1 Banana Saver is $3.95, and a 6 Pack is $21.00 (or $3.50 each). I would use the Banana Saver in the lunchbox during the schoolyear and take advantage of the bananasicle recipes in the summer as a great healthy substitute to standard popsicles. You can purchase them from their website, or search the several stores that stock the gadgets here.
