Secret message bananas

Write on bananas with toothpicks, and, as the day goes on, the message slowly appears. What an adorable idea for kids (and lunch boxes).

It's like a secret code!

Ahh - I'm totally doing that with my roommate's bananas (fingers crossed she'd see the joke, and not see it as vandalism!)

What a cute idea! Just as long as it doesn't bruise the banana. I hate bruised bananas! ;-)

Kids? My husband is 30 and he leaves me notes on my banana that I pack in my lunch for work :) Here's an old one form my 30th Bday http://twitpic.com/2bimyh

Jamie @ charmingly ordinary said...

This is way more clever than writing a note on a napkin! Pinning this...

Aya said...

This is so cute. I definitely going to do this in my boyfriend's lunch. I love that it slowly appears--like those invisible markers from back in the day!

maura@ragamuffinrecipes said...

NEAT! I always looked forward to the goofy drawings/messages that my dad wrote on my napkin for lunch when I was little, so I will definitely be doing this (:

What a fun idea!

louloustar said...

Insanely embarrassing for the kid involved when that banana comes out of the lunchbox infront of all the other kids! Not cool mom

Sarah said...

This is so sweet. I remember getting love notes in my lunch from my mother, but I think it would have made it that much better on a banana =)

SUCH a cute idea! I'd put one in my husband's lunchbox but he HATES bananas....I know, I'll just force one in there.

My group in college used to send each other bananas with secret messages on them - our mailboxes were just long enough to hold normal bananas, and the mailroom staff were kind enough to deliver them for us. I loved getting one - especially the ones that had intricate artwork on them instead of messages. I knew that a friend had been bored in class with a banana and a toothpick, and thought of me...heartwarming!

Nixon said...

Nice creative ideas :O I will try it

Rose said...

amazing! I have a friend who is staying because she's having a hard time with her boyfriend- she takes a bananna to work every day- I might write her a supportive message tomorrow- thanks for this xo

sheenarenae said...

After reading this last night, I wrote an I Love You message on a banana for my fiance. He came home, found it, and thought it was the cutest thing. Love it!

Haha! I first saw this when The Bloggess posted about it: http://thebloggess.com/2011/08/listen-to-the-bananas/. WARNING: this is quite a different take on the banana messages, but hilarious.

JennySue said...

Bronwyn said...

This is just the best! My mama used to write sweet notes on my napkin for my lunch box, but I love this idea. Filing this away for the future :)

I have an old school black board in the kitchen where I leave messages to my husband and he also writes me stuff (adorable stuff). It's also useful for shopping lists! But these bananas are just adorable!!!

Jocy said...

Ha!! This is great, though the bananas in Cambodia are so teeny-tiny, I could probably only fit two or three words in.
