Sumifru Rose Bananas from the Philippines

Sumifru Rose Bananas

I saw these at NTUC FairPrice Finest last night, and the label drew me in: an "absolute sweet and creamy banana" with the added bonus of edible seeds in them? Cool! These I had to try. It's too bad then that they were neither sweet nor creamy. And the seeds were so small that I wouldn't have even noticed them had they not pointed them out. They were otherwise just very small bananas. Oh well.

Epilogue: I also tried their "Banapple" variety several days later. The label suggested that it tasted like apples, but it turned out that it was only due to it being a rather tangy banana. Their marketing team is trying really hard to put a spin on things, it seems.
