1. Quite a testament to their healthful properties.
"Reese's Peanut Butter & Banana Creme Cups: similar to the stuff that killed Elvis. Enjoy!"

4. Here's Elvis' Recipe
2 tablespoons butter, softened
8 slices white bread
1/2 cup smooth peanut butter
1 large, ripe banana, sliced
1/4 cup honey
12 slices bacon, Sauteed until crispy (optional)

Spread the butter on 1 side of each slice of bread. On the other side of half of the slices spread peanut butter. Place banana slices on top of peanut butter. Drizzle honey over bananas. Place 3 bacon slices on top of the banana, then place the remaining buttered bread slices on top, butter-side-out.
Place sandwiches on a preheated grill pan or griddle. Flip them over when they become golden brown and crispy. When the sandwiches are browned on both sides, remove to plates. Slice in half and serve immediately.


It's healthy because it contains a serving of fruit.

6. Yes indeed! And don't forget...
...peanuts are a legume, which counts as a serving of vegetables. The bread is grain and fiber. Honey is an antibiotic. Bananas, as you say, are a serving of fruit, and also a useful source of potassium. The bacon is, well, bacon.

All in all, a very healthy snack.

13. Bacon is a source of protein...
and probably other healthful stuff, among all the less healthful stuff.

5. For some reason that just made me feel sick to my stomach.
I don't know why, but the phrase "banana creme" could not sound any less appetizing to me.

8. I got them at the grocery store
on clearance 85 cents for a bag of minis. I admit I bought 5 bags :-D I've also seen them at Walgreens and the gas station. They're a limited edition thing so it could be hard to find at this point

11. I can just see Stewie yelling at Brian
"You got banana creme on my peanut butter cup, you PHILISTINE!"



And then beating the shit out of him.

12. All banana candy I have ever had was disgusting
so I don't think I'll try that, although I've seen it a few times on sale and almost almost picked a pack up.

16. Banana Laffy Taffy is one of my favorite things
and this has that same sort of banana flavor but it's subtle. Honestly I didn't think I'd like it, I originally bought it more out curiosity because I'm a candy freak plus weird things intrigue me. It's weird but I like it.

15. Yes the minis from the office candy jar, but didn't know they were banana, but they did taste funny
But I thought there was something wrong with me.

Occasionally I hallucinate that I'm eating something that tastes like banana even though it does not have any banana. This was caused by an incident where I ate ice cream that was vanilla, but I thought it was banana due to various impairing activities beforehand that made me both hungry, confused, and concerned actually that the vanilla ice cream at the buffet was in fact, banana soft serve.

My friends were no help because they were alternately telling me I was crazy and then telling me I was actually right.

17. I try to avoid banana creme anything out of principle
For whatever reason, it just doesn't appeal to me. But I'm not much of a fruit person in the first place.

18. oh, make no mistake it doesn't taste anything like banana
lol It's just one of those bizarre chemical flavors that they *call* banana flavor but not really. I am a terrible junk-food junkie and I don't imagine any amount of growing up will ever cure me of that.
