Review of Chiquita Banana Bread Mix

by StevenHelmer

I purchased this at one of our local grocery stores for $2.54. Read to find out what I thought of it.

Product Description: Boxed banana bread mix from the Chiquita brand and prepared by adding two bananas, an egg and water to the mix before baking. I purchased a box of this mix (along with some bananas) while out grocery shopping last week. My wife used the mix to make banana bread earlier this week.


I was picking up a few groceries last week before work and, while walking through the produce section of the grocery store, happened to notice a display with Chiquita Banana Bread Mix. The bread mix was relatively affordable at $2.54, so I decided to pick up a box of it as well as some bananas.

Banana bread is an item everyone in my family (including my two picky children) enjoys. But, it's not something we make very often, partly because we either don't have the time to do so or don't have any bananas. I saw this mix as a more-convenient way for us to have the bread and, as it turns out, it exceeded expectations.

My wound up using this mix earlier this week, making the bread in the afternoon after everyone was done with work and school. As I had hoped when I purchased this product, the mix did make baking the bread much more convenient. She started mixing this as I was starting some hamburgers on the grill and had the bread baking in the oven before I got back in the house.

As far as the overall product goes, there were no complaints. The bread came out moist and delicious and, had I not been the one purchasing the mix, I don't think I could tell the difference between bread made from this mix and banana bread made from scratch. And, as I expected, my daughters loved it too.

The mix also makes a decent quantity as well. The loaf my wife ended up with was larger than the banana bread she's made from scratch and has lasted us most of the week as a result. That, along with the other things, made it worth the money.

Final Opinion

This turned out to be a good purchase and I would definitely buy this product again. If you like banana bread and want the convenience of a pre-boxed mix, I recommend this one.

StevenHelmer, Thank you for product lines, pretty pictures and practical information.
In particular, I appreciate knowing about boxed products that help me extend what I make up fresh -- from scratch! -- when I've not anticipated the number of guests and re-serving requests. Even as I do not eat bananas, I make it for those who like bananas and plantains -- along with other breads for those who prefer elsewise.

Would you re-heat the leftover banana bread? Whether served cold or re-heated, would you have toppings?
