My archenemy, banana flavoured bubble gum. Banana flavoured gum from the 1980s is the whole reason I don't like banana flavoured treats. So why am I reviewing this, why would I eat what could be the worst treat, the treat that wakes me up at night, why would I do it? Well that's simple, I forgive you banana-flavoured bubble gum. I'm a big enough man that I'm willing to try it again. I figure with a little chocolate it could be great, after all I love chocolate chips in my banana bread, so this should all be good.

This is not good, the flavour it's still the same, for the love of god how can any company, any human being claim that this flavour is anything like a banana. I love bananas, they're yellow and yummy and this my friend is no banana. The chocolate does help a little tiny bit, but that flavour is short lived and instantly it's back to banana.

If I made this treat the first thing I'd do is not use the horrible fake banana flavour. The second thing I'd do is do more chocolate and less banana. I think the problem stems from the fact that banana is a really subtle flavour; this "banana" flavour is not subtle at all. Everything is lost in it especially this chocolate.

I'm sorry to say that once again I am once again not a fan of fake banana; I beg any candy company to change my mind.

Chew Time: I'm sorry I can't chew this long enough
