You can easily come across plenty of banana sticks which are covered in dark chocolate at almost every Japanese matsuri (Japanese festival) during the summer. Choco banana sticks are usually sprinkled with colorful sprinkles that make them both look fun as well as taste more interesting. Plus, various types of chopped nuts, like almonds, walnuts, granola, and pecans are also favorite toppings for these luscious fruit sticks. 

Also, better than an ice pop, frozen bananas dipped in melted dark chocolate can be awesome treats for your family, your friends, and of course, yourself on a hot summer day. No wonder it’s one of the top matsuri street foods in Japan. It sounds like it’s time for you to start looking up some choco banana recipes for this summer.

You don’t feel anything strange from the name “Tokyo Banana”, do you? No, of course not. We all know that the best sweet souvenir we can get when visiting Japan is a box of Tokyo Banana. You can only find the choco banana flavor of this special product in Tokyo Solamachi which is located inside Tokyo Sky Tree Town. 

The uniqueness of this exclusive Tokyo Banana lies in 2 points: appearance and filling. First, customers obsess over the outstanding leopard print design. Then, they are astonished by the tasty chocolate banana custard cream on the inside. These points make it one of the most unique types of choco banana treats that visitors to Japan can enjoy.

Coris Chocolate Banana Dip Candy

Yes, your guess is correct. This product certainly imitates the real chocolate covered banana that we talked about above. Yet, the specialty of this sweet is that you get to do it yourself from the fake banana to the chocolate banana dip candy. 

Even better, this DIY Coris product also includes a toothpick, banana-flavored soft candy, chocolate cream, and colorful sprinkles so you can create a tiny version of the real choco banana stick. This may just be candy, its strong and tasty choco banana won’t disappoint.
