Barratt Shrimps & Bananas, England

So many questions when it comes to Barratt’s Shrimps & Bananas of England. First, don’t the English call shrimp “prawns?” This makes things confusing from the get-go. Also, why would anyone associate shrimp with candy? (Although, thankfully, the foamy little shrimp taste more like raspberry than seafood.) And pairing shrimp with fruit is also a curious move, especially when the fruit is banana, a notorious flavor in the candy world that’s probably best known for being the least popular type of Runts. Even Hannah Hoskins, our Entertain Editor from England, says she has always been perplexed by this peculiar pairing.

Surprisingly, we just learned that shrimp and banana actually can coexist peacefully and deliciously. Click here for a shrimp and banana cocktail recipe you can make at home.
