I Don't Like Brown Bananas

    The Texture...ick

    A brown banana is an extremely ripe banana.  The flesh is too sweet and I find the texture nasty. Give me a slightly green 'nanner any day!

    I Prefer Yellow

    I tried green, yucky. Too bitter! You only have a small window of opportunity with nanners!

    Just Say No to Brown Bananas.

    I prefer a banana with a tinge of green.  I'll eat them when they are yellow but as soon as they start to get brown I trash them. Never will forget when my mom found a petrified banana in my closet.   Ewwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww........

    But of course, that I me being sort of picky in a way. I'm not overly fussed on the yellow ones either, I'd only eat them if it was the last possibly option. Brown bananas just sort of scare me.

    Unless I Use Them For a Smoothie

    Whenever I let a banana get too ripe its time to get the blender out, once blended in you can't tell it was ever brown.

    Thank You Mrs. Bain. Thank You Very Much.

    I love me a banana, but the second that one starts to turn from yellow to any shade of brown...that things out. I'll never forget 7th grade science class, my teacher told me how some kind of bug will live in the top of bananas that are going old. I don't know if it's true or not...

    I love bananas but I'm quite picky with them, I won't eat them if they're even slightly green... I can just about stomach them with brown speckles but the perfect banana is the GLORIOUS shade of sunshine yellow. Brown bananas are disgusting... All gooey inside.

    I Am Prejudice Against Brown Bananas

    I'm very particular about my fruit. Strawberries should be red, no white on top or all smushy. Oranges should be soft but not squishy. Apples should be the color that I bought, not going brown or some other off color. Grapes should be firm and juicy. But most of all, Bananas...

    Over Ripe

    I don't like when they turn brown and all yucky unless I want to make banana bread. I love Special K w/ bananas but if they are over ripe (or under) then yucky! I'll pass...

    I'm Picky

    Bananas have such a small window of "goodness" lol.  If there is one brown spot on it, it's done, it's over, I won't eat it.   That banana becomes a treat for my dog!  Pure yellow bananas are as ripe as I'll eat them.  A little bit of green is absolutely perfect!  Not too...
