Eat more fruit and veg, they say. Bananas are a great source of potassium, they say. Well I've got news for you, society; bananas are the Devil's work!
Don't get me wrong. I've never had anything against bananas, per se. In fact they may even be my favourite fruit. The issue arises when we focus on the storage and transportation of your bananas. First of all, they're not a convenience fruit. You can't just buy a banana and eat it straight off the shelf, you have to wait a couple of days for it to ripen. More planning has to go into eating a banana than often goes into buying a new car.
But the biggest problem of course is the transportation of said banana once it is fit to eat. As you hurry about the kitchen before heading off to work or tot the gym, you throw a banana in your bag, thinking you'll have a snack for later. However, when you later reach in to fetch it out, you discover the banana has been bruised to point that it is now inedible!
This was one of the single biggest headaches in my life for many a year. No matter what way I tried to place it in any bag I was carrying, the banana would inevitably end up in shite.
Then one day I heard a rumour. I heard a rumour that Tiger were selling an item which could solve everything - a banana case.
This €1 item has been a revelation. In fact, when I look back now I think I can divide my life into two parts: the time before I owned a banana case and the time after I owned a banana case. What a wonderful invention. Now I can go to work, the gym, football training, the North Pole etc. safe in the knowledge that my banana will come to no harm.
Just to clarify, we were not paid by Tiger or the banana industry for this article, we were merely moved to share this wonderful device with you. We hope it brings you as much joy as it has us.
