We dry the apple banana variety which we get from local Kauai farmers on the west to east side of the island. The creamy tart apple banana is perfect drying due to it's consistency and flavor. It is the perfect snack that is easy to take anywhere even on the plane. It is also one of the healthiest snack providing lots of fiber, potassium and energy.

For your knowledge: As you know chocolate melts in the warmer temperatures, so summer months may not be a good time to order the chocolate dipped bananas. We make our chocolate dipped bananas after you order so they are fresh, but when chocolate is exposed to heat during storage it has a tendancy to turn white which is called Bloom. Bloom is when the coco butter or oils separate from the other ingredients. It has nothing to do with age of the chocolate even the freshest of chocolates can become bloomed. Chocolate should be kept between 60 to 70 degrees.
