We want to cheer on all the runners who will try their best. Dole has always taken up the
challenge to open up all of banana’s new possibilities.
Part of this challenge is the “Low-Brix Banana,” which is less sweet and enjoyed by those who exercise,
and the “Gokusen Banana,” which offers a rich, deep sweetness. In order for bananas to
provide ever more support to runners, Dole has created a revolutionary new product.
It is called “BANAPEN”.
It is the first pen in Japan used exclusively for writing a message right on the banana skin.
When you write on the banana skin with the pen, you will be surprised again.
Easy to write, easy to hold. It is truly the MAGIC pen.
Write a message on the banana skin and wait for about 5 minutes. Then the characters or pictures that you wrote will appear on the skin.
*How they appear depends on each banana and the actual pen pressure.
Surprisingly, not ink but actually vinegar is contained in the pen. With oxidation effect of the banana skin, you can write characters or pictures on it. As it is an edible material, you will feel safe and reassured.
What the runners need is moderate
sweetness. The lightly sweet banana defies
the conventional wisdom of bananas.
After exhausting all their energy, runners choose this
This rich-tasting banana with a deep sweetness
Let’s write your message with the BANAPEN on the
banana, which is perfect for sports, and support the runners.
