BANANA CRAZY

20170118_052245

I first caught a whiff of these beauties from an Instagram shot of one of my students. It took me a while to fully understand that it was a chiffon cake shaped into a cute banana and filled with custard. It was because she just took a picture of the box. Then other photos started showing up on Instagram. Just my luck, it’s not available anywhere except for Japan. But luck was on my side this January. One of my layovers from a trip to Los Angeles was Narita. I had more than an hour to kill so I went around the departure lounge area. I had nearly forgotten about these babies when my eyes serendipitously fell on a display counter brimming with boxes of Tokyo Bananas in three variants.  Naturally, I got all three of the flavors – original, chocolate brownie, and caramel. Sweet! Beautiful! Scrumptious! And it didn’t bore a hole in my wallet – three boxes only totaled ¥3,500 or IDR408, 968.
