Why do I despise bananas, but *love* plantains??

Christina D | Nov 7, 2006 03:35 PM

I was having this discussion with some friends and found that I'm not the only one. There were at least 3 others that felt exactly the same as me.

I understand that plantains have a higher starch content than bananas, and the flavor is certainly similar...but why would one evoke such strong emotions one way vs. the other? Is there a certain flavor component that one possesses and the other lacks?

Just wondering. Would love to hear your thoughts.

Thanks!
