I finally found something that doesn't go with chocolate!

    Bananas!.. eeeww.. I'm an enthusiastic cook and everyday I'm always looking to invent a new recipe or come up with a unique food. So I decided to try and mix chocolate with bananas for my desert and eeeww.. it was disgusting!

    Usually chocolate goes with anything but I have now found out it doesn't go with bananas!

    Have you tried coming up with a weird food mixture?

      Given that Google lists over half a million web pages for chocolate-covered bananas, I think you need to realize that you've discovered a personal preference and not any sort of actual culinary fact.

      you've never in your life ever had bananas with chocolate? like, say, a banana split or something?

      chocolate goes great with bananas, IMO. even better are fresh raspberries, yum. but the chocolate has to be dark chocolate.

      I would have to disagree, simply because of the most FAMOUS ice cream dish happens to be a Banana Split, which usually has either chocolate ice cream or at least hot fudge. smile

      I have to disagree!
      Dairy Queens sell chocolate covered bananas and they are my favorite!
      I wrote a hub about bananas by the way!
      I also have another hub where I give out a weird recipe for a drink called "Taste Like Shit".

      Maybe you don't like bananas. or here's a question: were the bananas fresh? or which kind of bananas did you use?  Now personally I love chocolate. However, I would not mix it with tomatoes, unless I were making Mole, which is a whole other beast. I love a good Mole by the way.

    Are you kidding me? Bananas go great with chocolate.  Haven't your heard of a banana split?  Or bananas dipped in chocolate? Yum. But, then again, it might not be to your taste.

    Mmm, I love banana splits with chocolate sauce, chocolate ice cream, chocolate chips....

    I tried broccoli with chocolate once on a dare. Not as horrible as I expected, but not something I ever plan to eat again!

      yikes

      you know, that might actually be kind of good. that is the hottest thing right now in culinary circles, combining sweet with savory. they are even putting chocolate in chicken dishes.

    Personally, I don't think bananas go with much of anything, however, in chocolate pudding is one way I do enjoy them.

    Personally, I don't like chocolate with mayonnaise.  smile

    My father-in-law didn't like bananas but he had reasons:
    1. They are crooked.
    2. They are yellow.
    3. They have too much flour in them.

    As a chocoholic who loves Banana Wheel Sundaes I differ with your opinion that chocolate and bananas do not go together.  If you are trying to mix the two into a mash well then you may have a point but as far as complimenting each other bananas and chocolate are a definite tastey duo.
