Shelly K. for Diana's Bananas - Frozen Bananas Covered in Chocolate

 

When I was younger, my Dad was anti-sugar.  He instilled nutrition values in me that I have kept up with my son.  That’s not to say there was/is zero sugar allowed, but he preferred more natural alternatives versus commercial snacks laden with sugar.  For cereal, instead of buying frosted versions, he preferred that I add my own sugar.  He noted that I could add as much sugar as I wanted and still not reach the astonishing levels frosted cereals contained.

 

Instead of popsicles, we were often served “semi-homemade” frozen bananas.  The bananas would be peeled and wrapped in plastic wrap (my least favorite packaging method, but it worked for this purpose) and then frozen.  I still love them to this day, but I guess I had forgotten about them.  We generally used it as a method to save the dying banana, but with Diana’s Bananas, you get only the most premium bananas.

I can’t imagine preparing them at home, covered in chocolate.  I surely don’t have the patience or equipment needed to prepare them this way.

 

One fine day, I stumbled upon a fellow blogger’s site who had been given the opportunity to review Diana’s Bananas.  I contacted the company and they gladly sent me product to review.  While I was expecting a coupon or two for complimentary product in exchange for review, instead I received FRESH, frozen chocolate covered bananas.  I did not just receive a box or two.  I received 6 boxes!  Since they had communicated that they would be sending frozen product, I had it sent to my work.  It wasn’t until I received the product that I learned how many boxes I would would receive.

 

Needless to say, I shared them with my coworkers in the office.  I received 3 boxes of milk chocolate and 3 boxes of dark chocolate covered bananas.  Only two boxes were needed to satiate my coworkers appetites.

 

The consensus was that they’re amazing! Having grown up with semi-homemade frozen bananas, I was in love with the fact that they were dipped in chocolate.  This is not something you can do easily at home, in my opinion.  I’m not even a huge fan of chocolate, which is atypical for a female according to popular belief, but still…I was very impressed.

We’re all following diets at work, in an attempt to find better health and/or weight loss.  I was shocked that even those who were observing Paleo diets, tried them.  Chocolate Covered Frozen Bananas don’t exactly meet the Paleo diet criteria, BUT it doesn’t hurt to have a treat every now and then.

 

If you think about your average nutritional label for a candy bar, you’re way better off choosing a chocolate covered frozen banana!

If you’re following the Weight Watcher’s Points Plus program, the Diana’s Bananas Babies Milk Chocolate and Dark Chocolate frozen bananas are 4 points, versus a Snickers bar at approximately 7 points.

 

If you’re looking for a treat with less calories, sugars and sodium than your average candy bar, Diana’s Banana’s are an alternative.  They’re especially refreshing in the summer, but are good year round!

 

I will definitely buy these for my family!! After a few weeks, I still had a few left, so I brough them into work.  My co workers devoured them!

 

 

 

They’re definitely a hit and not a one-hit wonder!
