You can get very creative with the fillings (all photos © Banana Loca | NA Market Direct).
 Here’s the gadget. It’s easy to use.
 A banana filled with chocolate spread.
 This banana is stuffed with raspberry preserves.
Banana Loca is an innovative kitchen gadget that lets you fill bananas with different fillings and variations on the basic fillings:
Chocolate or caramel sauce (photo #3)
Jams, preserves, marmalade (the difference—photo #4)
Nutella and other sweet spreads
Peanut butter and other nut butters
Syrups, and other flavorings
Liqueurs and spirits
You can layer these flavors with mix-ins:
How do you do it?
Banana Loca (photo #2) straightens a banana, cores it while still in the peel, and allows you to fill it with whatever filling you like.
That includes the basics plus your own custom creations (see ours in the next section).
NOT JUST FOR KIDS
Banana Loca creates a treat that is definitely not just for kids. We adults loved it. We created these fillings:
Almond butter with mini chocolate chips and chopped almonds.
Cannoli cream with rum-soaked raisins.
Desiccated coconut and mini chocolate chips in vanilla yogurt.
Fudge sauce with Grand Marnier (orange liqueur).
Marshmallow Fluff, mini chocolate chips, and desiccated coconut.
Nutella with Frangelico (hazelnut liqueur).
Oatmeal cookie pieces in sweetened ricotta.
Peanut butter with crumbled candied bacon and separately, with mini chocolate chips.
Sour cream and brown sugar, and separately with added granola.
Whipped cream cheese and dried cranberries
If we’d had chocolate chip cookie dough, we’d have tried that, too.
BONUS: You can freeze the filled bananas, for a new-style fruit pop. Remove the peel and wrap tightly in plastic wrap.
If you’re really gung-ho, you can add a stick and dip the bananas in chocolate before freezing. Here’s a recipe.
BONUS #2: You can also use the device to fill donuts.
Here are how-to videos.
