It turns out that they make banana cases, and you can buy them on Amazon. But I worried that the curve of the banana case might not always fit every banana. And the bananas that I buy at Costco always seem a lot bigger than the average banana. Would those cases fit Costco-sized bananas? Who knew there were so many deep questions about banana storage?
In the end, I just couldn’t bring myself to buy a banana case.
So, one morning as I was preparing my son’s lunch, I had an epiphany! I quickly cut off the top of a water bottle, wrapped the banana in a paper towel for “cushioning” and placed it in his lunch bag.
When he got home from school, I couldn’t wait to ask him how the banana holder worked – and (dramatic pause) – SUCCESS!! I just leave the holder in his lunch bag and re-fill it every day. No more wasted, squishy bananas!
