    Artificial banana is the best flavor. I'd love to have one of those actual bananas.

    Well it seems you had a recommendation storm a year ago. You may be due for another because I have no clue what I watched that made youtube think I wanted to see this. But I watched the whole thing.

    very satisfying video, can i have a candy too?

  • I'll eat your ass for some enchiladas

    the reason modern artificial banana flavor doesn't taste like bananas is because the flavor was originally made to taste like a gros michel cultivar, whereas nowadays we all eat cavendish bananas which taste different

    Very interesting! As a graphic artist I often get jobs for candy like this with images or letters in it. I have NO idea how they do it. I wonder if it's something like this? (usually always peppermint or strawberry).
    I had some funny little bananas in Bali a few years ago that tasted almost exactly like those banana lollies.

    I have NO idea why this came up in my notifications to watch??? Well, first of all, I loved this whole thing, the process, the filming, the skill, the whole thing. Second, you sir are one talented individual, you make it look so easy. I know that I would end up with a burnt, disgusting blob of inedible something and 3rd degree burns up to my elbows. Hats off to you. Third, I can't believe the level of trivia you seem to poses on the subject. What's that all about? Brilliant! Lastly, I now REALLY want to try some of you delicious looking candy. Sadly, I live in the UK so I can't pop along & just buy some; I'm so disappointed. So ya, this was just Fantastic !

      We do sugar candy to England. In Europe a shipper sort of has a minimum shipping weight of either half kilogram or 1 kg I can't remember which for England so it cost almost the same to ship eight bags of candy or more than one bag of candy. Thank you for enjoying our video.

    Everyone who's into bananas needs to start growing and refining them into different types of bananas so that our sweet yellow buddies stop being at risk

    • Lofty Pursuits

      The bananas we eat are. They can't reproduce on their own which means they can't cross breed. most varieties of bananas only fruit once per year for a couple of days or weeks and don't ship well. I have a banana tree at my house and we get one fruiting a year and once it ripens it has a shelf life of about 2 days. The long shelf life possible to ship variety is not common and without actual genetic engineering probably can't be changed.

    I've never liked hard candy. I've never even *seen* a soda shop like this.
    And yet for some reason, this video made me nostalgic for a time I've never seen, happy for a life I've never lived, and sad for the loss of things I've never had.
    This is a crazy world we live in. Who knows what the next generation will have. Who knows what they'll lose. It's all part of being human.

      I've always thought if I videos are very repetitive so I felt I had to tell a story to make them interesting. Mind you I see candy making all day long everyday so I don't necessarily find it as entertaining as everyone else. It's a lot of fun to do but it's not what I watch to relax :-)

    Here's a bright idea: If all modern bananas are being threatened by disease..and all modern bananas were modified to be what they are by primitive bananas. Just start over using primitive bananas, again?

  • Sapphire Indigo Angellia

    Here in the homeground of bananas, we can easily obtain a lot of different types of banana without much difficulty (though the Cavendish is, of course, the most common still). It's actually rather fun to eat different types of banana and taste their different flavours, though apparently I have a condition to do with certain bananas so I can't eat too many of them. :(
    We love deep-frying bananas coated in a batter, called many names (goreng pisang here). If you get your hands on much sweeter varieties of banana, this is actually a surprisingly simple yet delicious way to make a cooked banana.

    just came from a video critiquing the fact of how over the years advertisements have shifted from just saying what the product is to being entertaining and relatable. the very next video I watch is basically one long advertisement saying to buy their candy while showing you how to make it and the history of bananas. huh very effective brainwashing.

    Cool vid but I noticed you misspelled the word peel...It has two e's not an ea. I am sure I don't have to tell you what a dumbass you look like for not editing that.

    • Lofty Pursuits
      Lofty Pursuits  4 days ago

      You found one of my secrets. I misspell something for people to correct on almost every video. It generates comments like yours that increases the activity level on the video and gets TVclip to show it to more people as their highest metric for showing a video is based on how much interaction the video gets with likes and posts. Almost every video has a mispronunciation or spelling errors. It really helps with views thank you for your post. I guess it shows that I'm a dumbass :)

    It's not "Gross Michael", it's "Gros Michel", the weird spelling should be a giant clue that the name isn't English. It's pronounced "grO MEE-shell"
    In English the name is "Fat Michael". It's really jarring to hear someone call it the wrong name, especially someone who purports the know something about bananas.
    It's not "cavendash" either. It's Cavendish, and that one is English so you've got no excuse for butchering that one.

    Fascinating. I've always wondered this about fruit flavored candies. Banana, grape, cherry; I can taste a cherry candy and say "oh, that's cherry!" But I've never tasted an actual cherry that was anything like the candy taste. Same with grape.
    Well I know the story behind Banana now; I wonder if the others are similar.
