Laffy Taffy sings “We have no banana, today!”

Disclaimer: The Fandads have teamed up with Laffy Taffy for this post. All thoughts, words, and distaste for banana flavor Laffy Taffy are our own. 

Banana. Say it with me: Ba-Na-Na. It’s such a strange word. It’s one of those words that makes you feel funny when you say it. It’s kind of like the word moist. There’s just something about that word that makes you feel weird.

So why am I talking about “banana” in this fashion? Do I hate bananas and want them all destroyed? Not necessarily, but there is a certain type of banana I wouldn’t mind seeing it disappear. That’s the banana flavor of Laffy Taffy. Yeah, that yellowish, stretchable, piece of so-called candy needs to go. It’s just a flavor that shouldn’t have existed in the first place.

Now, don’t get me wrong, I do like a banana everyone and then. I enjoy it in a strawberry-banana smoothie and after doing a long run. I also like seeing people slip in banana peels in old cartoons because that is just hilarious, but it not funny when it’s in my Laffy Taffy.

I think the good folks at Laffy Taffy knew about my distaste for the flavor when they sent me a joke book. I was excited to open the book with my children, but what made us laugh out loud or “lol” as the kids say, was when the book was filled with Laffy Taffy and no banana flavor was found.

It was appropriate that we received this book on National Let’s Laugh Day because we all were laughing about this for a good portion of the night. I think Laffy Taffy know what it has to do to keep its fans: get rid of banana.

Now if you’re reading this and are a fan of banana, I’m sorry to break the news to you this way. Hopefully, you’ll be able to find the banana flavor somewhere. There might even be support groups for you. Until the flavor comes back, I would buy any banana flavor Laffy Taffy I see. Well, I wouldn’t, but you should.
