Bananas are known to have essential nutrients that can prevent some diseases and boost your overall health & well-being. So, does Starbucks sell bananas? Read on to find out more.
Ever since I started my athletic journey, I have come to embrace bananas as my go-to breakfast meal, daytime snack, and sometimes even dessert. It not only satiates my hunger, but it has been great for digestion for quite some time now. One of the closest good joints around me is Starbucks, which I happen to pass by every morning on my way to work, and one question I always had in mind was: ‘does Starbucks sell bananas?’
Yes, they do. However, Starbucks rarely stocks more than a dozen bananas on their food display shelves. Sometimes, they may not necessarily be available for purchase.
Can I buy a banana from Starbucks?
Yes, you can. Starbucks stocks up a significant amount of bananas to cater to its customer’s healthy food preferences. Even better, you can easily find perfectly ripe and tasty bananas off the Starbucks shelves. However, you should note that you can only purchase a few, not necessarily a bunch like you would at a supermarket.
Why are Starbucks bananas expensive?
One of the things you may notice when purchasing a banana at Starbucks is that it can be quite expensive. Most people attribute the high costs of bananas from Starbucks to the value of the added convenience of getting a banana at a fast-food restaurant. There is the notion that a customer would weigh the cost of taking a rounded trip to a supermarket (that is, the effort, time & transportation costs) against the extra cost of the bananas on the shelves. If it makes perfect economic sense, which it often does, every Starbucks customer is willing to pay extra for a great snack.
Besides that, there is also the belief that it isn’t just about paying for the banana. You are also paying for the ambiance with nice chairs/tables, free WiFi, and perhaps great service from the well-trained baristas.
Certainly, bananas are healthier than muffins, cakes, and other fast foods that you would find on the Starbucks shelves. If you are willing to pay a little extra for one banana, make the most of it as much as you can.
Does Starbucks have anything banana?
It has the banana cream pie Frappuccino, which is extra creamy and delicious.
Does Starbucks have a banana smoothie?
No, it does not. However, it sells 3 smoothie flavors blended with a whole banana and about 2 scoops of protein powder.
