Bakers Delight from Asahi (Banana chocolate)

Banana Diet was big with the ladies last year and ever since banana flavored products have been coming on to the market in an attempt to ride the trend and cash in on sales. This Asahi product in their Bakers Delight series was a set of 3 banana chocolate cookies. Quite tastsy.

Manneken Waffle (banana flavor)

Manneken Waffle (??? flavor)

When the Manneken brand first came to Japan and Belgian Waffles were all the rage, people used to line up for ages to get the taste of a hot waffle. The lines have gone, mostly, but Belgian Waffles are still popular. Here is a new variation on the waffle in a convenience store. A quick quiz to test out your eyesight.

  • What’s the flavor of the waffle?
    A. Banana

    I kinda figured it would be bananna seeing the theme was bananas. And i love Belgian waffles, seeing I'm 90% belgian and 10% wooden shoe,lol!xD That makes for a quite yummy flavor. And that banana and chocolate combination cookie sounds scrumptious. I like mixing different flavors when I bake things. I add chocolate chips to banana nut muffins and they really taste great. As for those socks what's next?? Makes it nice if tou left home and your sock had a hole in it. Seeing you have to remove your shoes at many places there in Japan, you don't want to be embarresed with a hole in your sock.
    3 great articles to start off the week.
    Great job as usual.

      The Banana waffle probably tastes better fresh baked, but the conbini variety wasn't to bad. Just not quite as fresh as i remember waffles to be

    When the Banana Diet fad was on here, it was hard to find bananas to buy since they were disappearing from the stores quickly.
