You guysssssssss… we are huge banana fans in this house.

If you’ve seen my Tiny Tummies posts , you know that bananas are a frequent star of our tasting plates. They go in our smoothies, lunch boxes, popsicles, and picnics. Bananas all day everyday in this house. I think we buy 4 bunches every week.

Well, Chiquita is having a Sing-Off to bring back their catchy 1944 jingle! Be sure to check out the rules for the Chiquita Jingle Contest before you make your entry… I didn’t double-check, and I think we aren’t eligible to enter because Anneliese is the “star” and she’s under 13 years old (but I’ll have to double check with Chiquita to be sure).

We might have to make a new video to enter, because I would LOVE to win! I listed the prizes below, but one of them is a year’s worth of Chiquita bananas! I’m not sure they could handle my family’s banana consumption, but they could try.

Also make sure to check out the Video Gallery to see what you’re up against and to get inspiration.

Our inspiration was the original commercial, which we watched like 100 times to learn the song. Anneliese loved the part with the talking bananas, so when she recorded her version, we had to include it even though it’s not officially part of the jingle. She had hear heart set on it! I love her little voice saying, “Not yet my dear.” to the green banana who wants to know if it’s time to eat him or not.

And here’s Anneliese’s version:

If you’d like to Register here for the contest, here are the official lyrics so you can practice for your video.

“I’m Chiquita banana and I’ve come to say

Bananas have to ripen in a certain way.

When they are fleck’d with brown and have a golden hue

Bananas taste the best and are best for you.

You can put them in a salad. You can put them in a pie-aye.

Any way you want to eat them, it’s impossible to beat them.

But, bananas like the climate of the very, very tropical equator,

So you should never put bananas in the refrigerator.”
