A fun fact about bananas

Have you ever noticed that artificial banana flavoring and artificial banana flavored products don’t really taste like bananas?  That’s because the artificial flavor is based on a type of banana that was wiped out by a plague in the 1950’s.

(That’s not meant as a political statement, but you can draw your own conclusions about what’s happening to our planet.)
