I was eating an under ripe banana and complaining about how pathetic it was, when someone said "that's how I like my bananas." So it would appear that not everyone likes their bananas at the same level of ripeness. Differences of opinion?! Time for a poll!

I voted same as you...mostly yellow with a few spots. I also like the just barely yellows if they are frozen and cut up into little slices to eat as a dessert but I don't like them eaten the normal way.

Pure yellow. I'll do mostly yellow with some green, but once the brown spots start appearing, I'm done. That's when I throw them in the freezer for smoothies. The banana flavor just gets a little too overpowering for me at that point. Pure yellow is perfection, though. That's why I buy my bananas green and just eat them as they turn to that sweet spot.

As far from my mouth as possible. . .

I like the taste of bananas but hate the texture. I'll eat almost any form of banana (in baked goods, banana "soft-serve"-like product that doesn't really resemble soft-serve, banana chips. . .) except for straight-up bananas.

As soon as they don't have ANY green on them, they are okay to eat. I like just a few brown spots.

I hate that the grocery stores mostly throw them out just when they're starting to get good and edible. I have to wait a minimum of a week for recently purchased bananas to get to the stage where I want to eat them.

I went with the dinosaur wieners, but I don't really eat plain bananas too often. Dinosaur wieners work best if you're not straight-up eating.

In bread and with chocolate chips. Oh my gosh I really don't love bananas. It was the only food I ate regularly for like a year, and not by preference. Worst time ever. The worst WORST is when you put bananas in my juice. My juice is not a smoothie. My smoothie doesn't need bananas. Go away.

I could probably eat a bowl of cereal with plain soy milk and half of a sliced yellow banana in it, but that's even kind of pushing it.

Don't even get me started on "soft-serve" bananas. No.

Dinosaur wieners?

I went with banana bread. I can't stand bananas that are under ripe, so I wait, and then I wait too long. We eat a lot of banana bread, and smoothies. Always seem to miss that perfect banana ripeness window.

Dinosaur wieners = really really spotty. I think I got the phrase from No Meat Athlete.

Thanks oddspongeout. Now I can sleep, I was trying to guess if that was a filter for something.

I don't really eat bananas (just in smoothies sometimes) so I voted my mom's preference... we were just talking the other day about how she likes them under ripe, like with lots of green still left on them.

When they are underripe, I find they leave a "chalky" residue on my teeth that I am not a fan of. I like yellow with lots of brown because they're sweetest.

Definitely fully yellow with a bit of brown. They are nice and sweet that way.

Yellow with some brown freckles! I haaaate green bananas, unless they're getting steamed and put into some Jamaican dish.

Mostly yellow with a little green. I can't stand the soft texture of ripe bananas. Once they've got brown spots on them, they go in the freezer for banana bread or smoothies or banana "ice cream."

The only way I like bananas is far away from me. I know, that doesn't at all answer your Q.

I like bananas super spotty and soft. Not total mush, but if I peel it all the way and hold it vertically, it can't support its weight and breaks in half. They're so sweet and banana-y at that point!

If I want a potato, I'll eat a potato. If I want a banana, it needs to taste like a banana (brown baby brown).

I would think green and hard would make more sense than soft and spotty? I guess it depends on the dinosaur.

I wish all fruits and veggies were like bananas. They get overripe, go bad, are no longer edible, and then you turn them into something tastier. I like them in smoothies, PB sammiches, and baked goods. But the texture on its own is too much like snot for me to enjoy.

Yeah, I think all you green banana eaters want plantains.

Yes, I think this is an equal opportunity for all bananas.
