As August 7 was Banana Day in Japan, 7-Eleven decided to debut some banana themed treats to coincide with this event, such as chocolate banana eclairs, pom doughnuts flavored with chocolate and banana whipped cream, and tear and share bread with banana cream and chocolate chips. 

It is the perfect way to get through this hot season by eating this 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 also try their 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. These sweets will make you realise how tasty banana desserts can be!
