In a pack of assorted candies, we always have that one most-favorite flavor that we always pick up first. Admit it, you’re definitely one of those who will pull out a pink Starburst first among other flavors. This is why Starburst decided to roll out its limited edition All-Pink Starburst back in 2017. Well, guess what? Laffy Taffy is also doing the same scheme. And we’re pretty sure that you already know which flavor they’re going to pick. If you’re thinking ‘banana’ then you’re absolute right. Besides, most of us have literally ‘gone bananas’ with this yummy flavor. Ferrara Candy Company recently announced the good news that bags of Banana Laffy Taffy is finally hitting the shelves. You heard it right, people! The company is making our dreams come true!
Gone Bananas: Banana-Only Laffy Taffy
In order to break the news, Laffy Taffy partners with actor/comedian Joel McHale to launch the Gone Bananas limited edition. The popular candy brand is also known for putting hilarious jokes on its wrapper. But no one anticipated for the ultimate joke that they’ve prepared for April Fool’s Day. Joel McHale took to Instagram to vent out his frustration about the missing yellow candies. The comedian posted this photo which immediately sparked speculation over the missing banana-flavored candy.
And in the wake of April Fool’s Day, the brand finally announces the new Banana-Only Laffy Taffy. Soon after, McHale posted this photo of him with the yellow bags.
