Starbucks Quietly Removed a Popular Menu Item

Starbucks has removed a tasty and healthful alternative, which may surprise health-conscious customers. We're talking about fresh yellow bananas, not Berry Trio Parfait or Rolled & Steel-Cut Oatmeal.

You used to find the fruit near the pastry case or cash checkout and buy one of these potassium-rich goodies for $1 or $1.50.

Due to Starbucks' silence, you may not have noticed that this item is no longer available. Starbucks no longer sells bananas, which is terrible news for banana lovers.

Starbucks confirmed to The Takeout that it discontinued frozen and fresh bananas in May 2022. The same official said Starbucks removed bananas "after evaluating the menu." 

The corporation undoubtedly determined that the fruit wasn't popular. Two years ago, a Starbucks employee on Reddit said, "We get 24, sell 1 or 2, throw out the rest when they get gross, and then repeat."

Starbucks may have discontinued bananas before 2022. Reddit user said they hadn't seen a banana at Starbucks in years. Another worker said, "I stopped ordering bananas a long time ago due to poor sales and fruit fly issues."

Some Starbucks customers were upset when they learned the news, even if most didn't notice. "Nooo I always loved the green tea frap plus banana it's so much better," one Reddit user remarked, adding a sobbing emoji face to indicate their disappointment.

You'll notice bananas absent from Starbucks' website. The Peter Rabbit Organics Strawberry Banana is one of several banana-related goods in the "Sweets & Snacks" area. 

In a packet with a cute rabbit on the cover, it "contain[s] USDA organic banana-strawberry puree with a hint of lemon juice." Serving 80 calories, 17 grams of sugar, and no fat in "convenient, squeezable, resealable pouches," the item is "[p]erfect for busy moms on the go."
