These were probably the most creative cookies back in 80’s , when we were kids.

Bananas happened to be one hard to find fruit ,exotic , not sold in regular supermarkets .

They came up with banana shaped cookies to imitate the fruit.

Everyone was in love with these cookies, up until now they bring up so many sweet memories .
