Choco banana is basically a chocolate covered bananas with sticks, commonly eaten at summer festivals in Japan. Its so delicious but it's not something that you can get anywhere. It's quite challenging to make the exact same choco banana at home, and you don't see choco banana at any supermarkets. That's probably why people love it so much and line up to try choco banana at summer festivals.
Milk chocolate is the standard one, but at some festivals you get to try colorful and fun choco banana!
