Starbucks Quietly Discontinued a Popular Menu Item

Starbucks has removed a tasty and healthful alternative, which may surprise health-conscious customers. 

Nothing like the Berry Trio Parfait or Rolled & Steel-Cut Oatmeal—just fresh yellow bananas.

The fruit was once sold near the pastry case or cash register for $1 or $1.50.

Due to Starbucks' silence, you may not have noticed that this item is no longer available. Starbucks no longer sells bananas, which is bad news for banana lovers.

Starbucks confirmed to The Takeout that it discontinued frozen and fresh bananas in May 2022. The same representative said Starbucks 

removed bananas "after evaluating the menu." The corporation undoubtedly determined that the fruit wasn't popular.

Two years ago, a Starbucks employee on Reddit said, "We get 24, sell 1 or 2, throw out the rest when they get gross, and then repeat."

Starbucks may have discontinued bananas before 2022. One fruit aficionado on Reddit said their Starbucks hadn't had bananas in years. 

Some Starbucks customers were upset when they learned the news, even if most didn't notice. "Nooo I always loved the green tea frap plus banana

it's so much better," one Reddit user remarked, adding a crying emoji face to indicate their disappointment.
