I heard about Clandestino bars from a co-worker who then told our products manager who then got us free samples, which I then tried. Ah, the chain of free office grub.
Clandestino bills its products as “surfing candy” (which is weird…have you ever seen candy surf? he.he.). Each bar is made with ONE ENTIRE banana and the flavors are plain (which is literally an entire banana and that’s it!), or covered in either milk or dark chocolate.
