As August 7 was Banana Day in Japan, 7-Eleven decided to debut banana-themed treats to coincide with this event.

They're the chocolate banana eclair and pom doughnut flavored with chocolate and banana whipped cream. Having them is a very good way to get through this hot season by eating this nutritious, healthy fruit. The eclair has quite a presence. Lots of whipped cream and custard cream, generously coated with rich chocolate and sprinkled with a colorful chocolate topping. You can try the product which is reminiscent of a chocolate banana, which is a popular item at summer fairs in Japan, for just 230 yen. The doughnut on the other hand has a light, springy texture, partially coated in banana chocolate, whipped cream, and banana cream; these flavors are heightened by the addition of bitter chocolate chips. At just 128 yen, these sweets will make you realize how tasty banana desserts can be.

As banana plantations are concentrated in Okinawa and other parts of sub-tropical Japan, there is no better place than Uruma to try a banana treat at 7-Eleven. Japan produces nearly 250 tons of bananas a year, giving plenty of high-quality fruit for 7-Eleven to choose from.
