A little triviaHere at GoGo squeeZ, we like to mix things up! Among the lucky varieties that make it into our pouches, the Camarossa with its delicate and melt-in-your-mouth texture, and the Senga Sengana with its sweet yet acidic taste, contribute to a recipe for success! A little trivia: did you know that strawberry is a fake fruit! Grab a magnifier and notice those multiple yellow dots throughout its flesh; they are called achenes and these are the actual fruits! The strawberry is actually an outgrowth from the flower of the strawberry tree. We therefore love to eat strawberry flowers!

Fun facts to make you shine!Interested in learning more about the Golden Delicious, the apple most commonly found in GoGo squeeZ?

It was then renamed Golden Delicious because it became so popular that it made all its producers wealthy since that day in 1914 when it fell from a tree in Virginia, USA. Its first producer, Paul Stark, would always say: With Golden Delicious, you can't be sure whether you're drinking champagne or eating an apple," This apple is as good as gold, apparently!

Bananas

It’s good to know more

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! Not only do they taste delicious, they are great for fighting against low-blood pressure with their high potassium and high iron content. 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!
