My boyfriend got himself a banana guard at the Glebe Emporium last week. No, it's not what you're thinking. It's actually a plastic case so your banana doesn't get bruised on your way to work or school. Although he has gotten a few weird looks from his fellow co-workers, I think it's a clever idea.
They come in a variety of colors. I think I'll get the pink one for myself. Available for 6.99 on their website.
