At first bite, we were taken by surprise by the sweet, almost candy-like, banana flavor. We weren’t too sure how we felt about it, but after a few more bites, it began to grow on us and we noticed more of the brown sugar and vanilla notes coming through. The texture is smooth and creamy with a nice added crunch from the sprinkles. As we continued eating it, we quickly ranked this as one of our top choices from the Tribute Store snack case!

If you’re a fan of bananas foster, we would also highly recommend the Mardi Gras Doughnut from Voodoo Doughnut in CityWalk. Mardi Gras 2021: International Flavors of Carnaval runs now through March 28, so be sure to stop by the Tribute Store and check out some of these delicious offerings!
