I can't be alone on this...

  • Yes! That fake banana flavor is revolting. All I can think of are those banana laffy taffy's... yuck. But banana's themselves are delicious, and taste nothing like that awfulness. What banana are they tasting to come up with that fake flavor?

  • I like some banana flavored things (like ice cream), but the candy/drinks are disgusting.

  • Honestly I think it's the other way around. Bananas are horrible and banana flavoured things are really good.

  • Cos the "banana flavoured" things... that flavour you're tasting is modeled out of the taste of a species of banana called Gros Michel.
    That species got wiped out by a fungus called Fusarium oxysporum back in the 20th century.
    The banana we have today are called the Cavendish which is resistant to that fungus.

    That's why it tastes so "different" .

    • Hell, the artificial banana flavour is created by an ester called Isoamyl acetate. That smells VERY different to the Cavendish we are accustomed to today.
