Welcome to Day #6 of Chocolate and Banana Theme Week.
Today's Banana with Cacao Jerky was from Solely, Inc. (La Jolla, CA).
Solely produces fruit jerky snacks using "one whole fruit" in each serving. They did not add any sugar to today's banana jerky with cacao, relying instead on the fruit's own natural sweetness. And that was wonderfully sufficient.
This banana fruit jerky had a soft chewy texture; and the aroma and flavor included earthy, dried banana, cacao, and faint, fleeting savory olive and green floral notes.
The concentrated, rich and sweet flavor nuances in this strip were banana-forward; however, the seamless blend of the banana and the ground cacao nibs, together, was greater than the individual flavors by themselves, resulting in more flavor depth.
The company's banana fruit jerky was made with just two ingredients: 1 whole organic banana and cacao nibs.
Ingredients: Organic banana, organic cacao nibs
