Chiquita Mom Kit: Review & Giveaway *CLOSED*

Disclosure: This post may contain an affiliate link.


Chiquita understands that being a mom may be the most challenging, yet rewarding job out there.  This is why it’s important to take care of yourself and your family.  Bananas contain 3 sources of natural sugar: glucose, fructose and sucrose as well as a significant amount of your daily fiber.  According to Dr. Lisa Metzgar for Families Online Magazine, “two [Chiquita] bananas provide enough energy for an intense workout.”  WOW!  Additionally, bananas contain potassium, Vitamin B6 and complex carbohydrates.  I love foods that pack such a nutritional punch!

Not sure what to do with your bananas?  Try this yummy treat:

Quick Chiquita Chocolate Banana Pop Recipe


  • 1 whole Chiquita Banana
  • 1/2 cup Chocolate Chips
  • 1/4 cup Crisp rice cereal or crushed nuts (optional)
  • 2 whole Ice Pop Sticks
  • 1 sheet Plastic Wrap
  • 1 sheet Wax Paper


Peel the banana, cut it in half width-wise and insert the sticks part way into each banana half. Wrap in plastic wrap and freeze for about an hour. Put the chocolate chips in a microwave-safe bowl and melt them on half power, checking every 10 seconds so they don’t burn. Dip the bananas in the melted chocolate till they’re coated. Dip in rice cereal or crushed nuts, if you like. Place on wax paper and put in the freezer to set for at least one hour.

What a delicious way to get your kids to eat their bananas!  Whether your starting your little one on solids or looking for a mid-day snack, Chiquita has you covered!

    Since my daughter is allergic to Peanuts and my son to Bananas….She thinks it is great she can have something he cannot….so Bananas and Nutella are a great sand here

  2. Debbie Hill says

    My 16 year old son is the banana lover at this house. I can bring a bunch in the house and within 24 hours all I have left is the peels!

  3. Debbie Hill says

    I just hit the “Like” button for Chiquita on Facebook! Looks like they sometimes have coupons for Fresh Express there too!

  4. says

    Oh my 5 yr old Son LOVES bananas!! But the same could be said for all of my kiddos! I cant wait to make some home made baby food from bananas for the baby! Im sure she will love them too!

  5. K says

    My 20 month old is the banana lover here. Has recently figured out the cabinet locks and found him yesterday morning with a peel from the trash. Mmmm, disgusting. :)

  6. Couliette says

    I have 5 banana lovers in my family. My husband and I and our 3 children ages 7, 6, and 4!

  8. Tiffany says

    Right now I am 36 weeks pregnant and it seems like I can’t eat enough bananas. I am also competing the my 21 month old son as he seems to think that as soon as Mom gets a banana he gets one as well. Needless to say we have gone through a lot of bananas as of late.

  9. Melissa C. says

    Surprisingly enough, our 17 year old son loves bananas. They are a healthy treat for a teenager.

  10. Claire says

    It is most definitely me!!! My brother likes them a lot too though – especially sliced & with milk like a cereal.

  11. Jason says

    My two year old son and I are the ones that eat them in our household. My twin daughters will eat them if they are baked in banana bread:)

  12. Kathryn says

    Everyone in my house loves bananas but I think the winner would be my five year old – she has eaten 5 bananas in a day before without blinking!

  13. Andrea says

    In my house the banana lover is my almost 3 year old son. If I try to eat a banana in front of him he gets mad and says no mommy that’s mine!

  14. Tasha Moss says

    My five year old daughter Tiara and my four year old daughter Treasure tie for the biggest banana lovers in the house.

  15. Jean-Marie says

    Thank for the opportunity! My 3 year old is a banana junky, we laugh that we have to take him to get his potassium levels checked because he likes 3 or 4 at a time and feels that they go with everything including pizza! Love the chocolate bananas, yum!

  16. Ashly says

    Both my daughters LOVE bananas. They have at least one a day each. My youngest is 18 mo and eats a whole big banana herself in 5 minutes!

  17. Janet McNamee says

    My 3 yr old and 19 month old both LOVE bananas! Have at least one everyday :)

    I am the banana lover in my house. Being a busy wife, mom, and student bananas are often my breakfast on the go!

  21. Irene R. says

    My family loves this fruit but thanks for making me think outside the box for them to eat these.

  22. ElizaBeth says

    Its my son! When he was little he use to call the spotted ones (his favorite) “Fuzzy”. If it wasn’t a Fuzzy Banana he wouldn’t eat it!
