Jellybeans, yogurt, candy, anything that is “banana flavored” for some reason doesn’t taste anything like real bananas. Why?
The reason is kind of crazy actually. The artificial banana flavoring used in products is based on a type of banana that was wiped out by a plague in the 1950s. So it literally doesn’t exist anymore. Next time you have something banana flavored, savor that flavor because it’s from another life.
