Are These Pre-Peeled Bananas the Stupidest Grocery Store Move Ever?

I didn't think it was possible to be this stupid... but apparently, a grocery store in Germany went there. The store peeled some bananas and then wrapped them up in plastic wrapping. WHY?!?! The banana peel is nature's way of providing your fruit with protection. Le sigh.

    No, I think it's brilliant. I hate peeling bananas!
    I'm not that lazy and I wouldn't buy these; however, they did that so that they could sell the bananas that had already begun to turn brown on the outside. That's why some of them have the ends cut off too; they had probably turned brown there as well. It's a way to maximize profits and minimize waste. I suppose people would buy them to use in Smoothies or recipes.

    Yeah, that's pretty darn stupid.
    It certainly doesn't sound too "a-peeling" to me.

    Yeah, that's pretty darn stupid.
    I wouldn't buy these pre-peeled bananas, but if they're trying to prove they are still good because the skins were all spotty and old-looking, more power to them to make a sale as they are still edible...
  • Steve 2012/09/25 19:44:12
    Yeah, that's pretty darn stupid.
    You go from a natural container which goes back to nature if it is tossed on the ground to plastic that is going to end up in landfills. There is convenience for you. How hard is it to peal a banana?
  • Quazimoto 2012/09/25 17:40:30

  • **Bessie** 2012/09/25 14:17:55
    Yeah, that's pretty darn stupid.
    Although sometimes I'm really tired, and I might get a leg cramp...so maybe they would come in handy then?

  • Bianca 2012/09/25 04:56:37
    that's so stupid. Just imagine how much preservatives one banana has. ewww
  • Osaka 2012/09/25 03:25:19
    Yeah, that's pretty darn stupid.
    They are extremely perishable, think of what they have to coat it with to be able to give it a long enough shelf life. XP

    Nature already provided the best package for the Banana and it was 100% biodegradable!
  • gingin6 2012/09/25 01:20:54
    Yeah, that's pretty darn stupid.
    Who likes brown bananas? Yuck! Do they put a chemical to keep them from browning? What's the point? Freshly peeled and eaten is better.
  • nofrills 2012/09/25 00:03:08
    Yeah, that's pretty darn stupid.
    that's the 47% of obama supporteres..
  • Taylor nofrills 2012/09/25 00:13:40
    Come on now, really?
    We can't even talk about pre-peeled bananas without politics being involved?

    It's more about laziness........................

    The topic is pre-peeled bananas.

    Yes, the essence of lazy.

    Germans suddenly have a say in who the President of the United states is?
    This conversation is sillier than pre-peeled bananas!

    ''Germans suddenly have a say in who the President of the United states is? '' My thoughts exactly as the media was frothing at the mouth over the great orator 4 years ago and telling us 0bama was the answer to all the world's problems. What does he think of pre-peeled bananas? Or is that a racist question?
  • Taylor Bureauc... 2012/09/25 05:16:56
    I don't even know where this is going anymore.
    I'm feeling like we should drop this before it becomes total conversation vomit.
  • johnqpu... Bureauc... 2012/09/25 05:58:37
    Well, it seems that Netanyahu thinks he's got a say in our politics. But hey, just wanted to say that my thoughts are that your GOP "Savior" is finished after the Prez debates. I wonder what he thinks of pre- peeled bananas?
  • Bureauc... johnqpu... 2012/09/27 00:25:32

    It seems that exposure on the View is more important to the Boy pResident than meeting with ANY World leaders. And wasn't that barack that was dictating policy to Israel.

    I am sure that barack and the wookie already enjoy pre-peeled bananas as neither of them are in the habit of doing anything on their own.

    ''But hey, just wanted to say that my thoughts are that your GOP "Savior" is finished after the Prez debates.''
    Emphasis on ''your thoughts''. I'm guessing you ''thought'' 0webama would be allowed to bring his Teleprompter. ROFLMAO!
  • johnqpu... Bureauc... 2012/09/27 04:04:57
    Like he's gonna need one, Ha!

    Obama calls debate prep 'a drag'

    " basically they're keeping me indoors all the time. It's a drag. They're making me do my home work"

    Sounds like he could use a TelePrompTer.
  • johnqpu... Bureauc... 2012/10/03 05:42:54
    Guess we'll see tomorrow night.

    So thrilled you replied. I thought of you as I heard bill Mayer say"0bama really DOES need his teleprompter"
  • johnqpu... Bureauc... 2012/10/05 02:33:01
    Surprisingly, he didn't take Romney out in this 1st debate. Round one goes to Romney on technicality. If I were you however, I'd wouldn't pop the cork on the good stuff just yet. And you really ought to get those ears of yours cleaned. He countered all of Romney's accusations with facts that can be verified. Round two, coming up.

    I cite the vicious attacks by LIBERAL Pundits on barrys performance as proof you are full of the koollaid.
    Time for you to get comfortable saying "President Romney". ROFLMAO!!
  • johnqpu... Bureauc... 2012/10/05 03:08:09
    In the end, all things come to light. Romney's "truths" will be exposed to that light. And that will be the end.In the meantime, suck up that koolaid, Owe.
  • Bureauc... Taylor 2012/09/25 03:54:49
    Bureauc 0Bamao
    His campaign had plenty of koolaid.
  • Stephen 2012/09/24 21:39:57
    Yeah, that's pretty darn stupid.
    Unless they sell them all rihgt away.

    Yeah, that's pretty darn stupid.
    They'll just go old faster. Already bananas go bad in just a few days it seems.
