Keep the monkeys away with Banana Guard


Suffering from bruised bananas because they get squashed in your lunch bag? The Banana Guard can help keep your fruit scratch-free. Designed to fit 90% of all bananas, it comes in five brilliant colors, including Mellow Yellow. Also features a secure locking mechanism (to keep the apes at bay) and air holes to allow for proper ripening.

Banana Guard is the brainchild of three Canadian emergency room doctors. Apparently their sensitivity to trauma extended to their favorite fruit.

Strangely enough, the only retailer listed on the website for the US is a bicycle parts store?!?!?!? The Canadian network of retailers also includes bicycle parts stores, but adds in golf equipment stores, and even . . . a few kitchen stores . . . imagine that! Guess Ill stick to ordering online for this one!

Bananas are popular snacks for cyclists, for the potassium.

I bought a Banana Guard (in Vancouver) and it is definitely a must for the busy banana lover. Beware though, you might get some snickers from your coworkers the first time they see you take the uniquely shaped plastic case out of your bag.

With the price of bananas in Australia now (post cyclone Larry, our banana crops were pretty much wiped out) - around $16 per kg - this little device protects an INVESTMENT!
