As August 7 was Banana Day in Japan, 7-Eleven decided to debut banana themed treats to coincide with this event. They're chocolate banana eclair and pom doughnut flavored with chocolate and banana whipped cream. Having them is a very good way to get through this hot season by eating the nutritious, healthy fruit. The eclair has quite a presence. Lots of whipped cream and custard cream, generously coated with rich chocolate and sprinkled with a colorful chocolate spray. You can try the product which is reminiscent of a chocolate banana, which is a popular item at summer fairs in Japan, for just 230 yen. The doughnut on the other hand has a light, springy texture, partially coated in banana chocolate, whipped cream and banana cream; these flavors heightened by the addition of bitter chocolate chips. Available at 128 yen. These sweets will make you realize how tasty banana desserts can be!
