b-a-n-a-n-a-s

one of the upsides to being miserably sick with the most awful head cold to end all head colds?

i have rediscovered my love-nix that- my absolute obsession with, banana popsicles.

by themselves, bananas are a bit odd and not one of my favorite foods. but things that taste like bananas? perfection. the banana-shaped runts candy? i dare say it is the best runt of all. i also adore banana bread, not to mention banana bread cereal from post selects.

then, just yesterday, i saw an advertisement for this. a machine that turns bananas into ice cream with the push of a button? the concept alone sells me!

here's to wishing your weekend is filled with warm sunshine, grass between toes, and your favorite fruit variation, even if it's just a strawberry slurpee from 7-11. as long as you're getting your fruit in, i say.

I think I can honestly say I have never eaten one of those! I adore banana bread - but eating bananas them self, I've never been a fan - the periodically slimy texture makes me kind of wanna...gag. But, that ice cream maker thing looks pretty darn sweet! :)

My grocery store sells frozen mini chocolate covered bananas and they are *amazing*. Mmm!

Get well soon, dear!

this looks glorious, and yes, the banana is by far the best runt.

Sorry to hear you are sick, doll! Spring head colds are the worst EVER!!!!! At least you still have your cute little kitties to keep you company? {btw...I have been stalking your blog for the past WEEKS but just haven't commented...sorry!}.

I am with you...I love me some bananas...in any shape, way, or form...as a fruit, as a runt, as a laffy taffy flavor, in bread...but a banana popsicle...be still my tastebuds! :)

Sending healthly thoughts and well wishes your way, friend!

bahaha! well i sure wasn't expecting this sort of photo popping up on your home page but it's a wonderful, happy surprise!

i didn't know you were feelin' the sicks doll, sure hope it heals up soon....these would be the perfect distraction. never knew about banana flavor before, you've now shared the motherload b/c i think that taste would surely be a huge sensation. my sweet tooth radar is pinging away right now!

i'd popsicle clink in a cheer if i was close by ; )

happy (and healthy) weekend. xo ♥

Shalyn said...

You do bring up an excellent point- nothing banana flavor is yucky! And the runts- no doubt the best flavor!

Please feel better soon!
