Well kept secretsWith 90 calories per 100 g, bananas are by far the most sustaining fruit to last till dinner. Students and athletes alike love it for its slow-releasing carbs. Look for the bright yellow ones, those will keep you awake the longest!

And for all the gluten-free dieters out there, bananas are the way to go, go! So don’t go bananas looking for a snack, grab a GoGo squeeZ apple-banana!
Let’s get cookingOver 12,000 years ago, in Indonesia, a man was growing his first plant ever… and it was a banana. Nowadays, it’s still the No1 fruit produced in the whole wide world! It’s ideal for appetizers to main course, and of course it’s great for snacking! Loving mothers from Western Africa, India and Latin America all turn to plantains for the star ingredient – fried, ‘alloco’ style, in patties, or in Licuado de platano, a blend of bananas. They also make savoury chips with them, to snack on while chatting with mommy friends. But when is come to deserts, the Cavendish variety is a classic, it melts in your mouth… and in our GoGo squeeZ pouches too! It’s finger licking good, and speaking of which, did you know where the name came from? It’s Bantoo or Arabic and it means ‘finger’!
Something to smile aboutWhat about a little riddle? Imagine a very tall coconut tree at the bottom of which sit a lion, a monkey, a giraffe and a squirrel. Which one will be the quickest to grab a banana? The giraffe with its elongated neck, the lion with its sturdy paws, the monkey who will climb the tree in a minute, or the fast and furious squirrel? So...?
None of them! It’s a coconut tree, not a banana tree! Haha!

A rich and long historyInitially, peaches were called Punus Persica, because Aristotle thought it came from Persia. Well, he was wrong. It actually comes from China, found 3000 year ago, it symbolizes revival, eternal life and longevity. It then went on its merry way to India, and the Middle East where it landed in Persia only to be picked up by Alexander the Great who brought it to Europe. Nowadays, different varietals such as Snow Ball, Jade and Diamond Bright have taken over the world! Sometime acidic, other times sweet, peaches are always welcome in our GoGo squeeZ pouches. Now try to resist them!
Shine bight by your wisdomDid you know that peaches were once forbidden to some? In the 15th Century, Sabadino degli Arienti, an Italian author, wrote about an earthling man, Messire Lippo, who caught a peasant stealing peaches. He accused him of breaching social order and taking privileges kept for people of a certain class! At that time, some foods such as peaches were meant for Nobility. Let’s remember that doctors thought that stomachs from the Lords were to be treated differently than the servants’. At least today, we are all entitled to have peaches when we see fit – in GoGo squeeZ pouches or as is.
