MY REVIEW
Reviewed May. 12, 2014

"I made these with my kindergarten kids. They were easy, healthy, and delicious!"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Aug. 19, 2011

"I haven't tried this, but it looks adorable and easy to make. My question is, can it be made 4 hours in advance without the bananas turning brown; possibly lemon juice? Would love to make it for centerpieces for a child's party."
