Tokyo Banana Omiyage

Tokyo Banana.  You either love it or hate it, but I think it's one of the best omiyage to receive other than fresh ramen.  You can find it in Tokyo Station or Narita airport among the omiyage stalls.  It's always a nice surprise when my former colleague visits DC for work and brings me a box of Tokyo Banana.
 Pretty wrapping and an odd poem decorate the cover.  “People gather to TOKYO with memories of their home. And then, Tokyo gets the everyone’s hometown. TOKYO BANANA.”  (The nonsensical Engrish is just another reason to love it.)
 Each one is individually wrapped.  Makes it easier to share.
Soft outside, like a Twinkie, with a delicate banana-flavored middle.
