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... again, boiled eggs last a hell of a long time in their shell... shell removed, not so long at all.

    No problem.

    I just figured... since the picture (& your description) seemed more "plantain-like" than "banana-like."

    Sadly I expected so much more from the German people. The wall came down and so did the exceptional standard of living.

    HAHA! Weird! Looks like me when I wake up! Can't tell the scale in the picture, but if those are 3 inch long packages, someone broke into my home and took a mould!

    Who cares, let them do what they want. If it sells, its a good idea. If not, they'll stop doing it.

    Even the 2 to 5 year-olds at the daycare I work at can peel their freaking bananas.
  • Flamingolady 2012/09/24 02:50:55
    Yeah, that's pretty darn stupid.
    Totally stupid, and such a waste. They will most likely turn black and be inedible in a few hours. Completely ridiculous. This makes this list. stupidest thing ever

    The owner of the store must be really dumb at peeling bananas.

    Who is to lazy to peel their own bannanas. I meen it's not that hard. Only baka(idiots) would sell or buy pre-peeled bananas.
  • Zepland 2012/09/24 01:56:57
    Please! don't peel the banana for me!
    The peel helps keep the banana fresh. And sealed from dust and air born junk.
