Banana Samba
Many fruit chews nowadays contain artificial ingredients and chemicals that completely defeat the purpose of a healthy snack. Finding a clean fruit chew shouldn’t be that difficult! And now, thanks to Banana Samba, it isn’t! Packed with flavor and nutrition, Banana Samba is an innovative recreation of a delicious dessert that dates back to colonial times in the tropics. Not only is it made with the highest quality ingredients (and you can pronounce them all!) but they’re also perfect to throw in your purse, backpack or gym bag for a quick and easy on-the-go treat.

Founded by Carla and Ruth Wahnon, Banana Samba takes a 400 year old dessert to the next level. The bananas are naturally ripened, that means no ethylene gas or artificial ingredients are used to create these irresistible, guilt free and 100% snacks. And that’s not all! We often see fruit chews made with preservatives and high fructose corn syrup, but Banana Samba steers clear from all that empty calorie nonsense. They’re perfect for those looking for a flavorful alternative to the cheap artificial energy fruit chews and bars. It’s time to make a switch without compromising on taste! Banana Samba is the simple, natural and convenient solution.
