According to a press release from Ferrara Candy Company, on April 1 they teamed up with comedian, actor and writer Joel McHale and sparked a rumor around the banana flavor Laffy Taffy. Thousand of people took notice and were wondering what happened to this number one flavor? On April Fools day the makers of Laffy taffy announced that they were launching a banana flavored only bag available for a limited time.  

Brian Lutz, Laffy Taffy brand manager at Ferrara Candy Company said  "Across the industry we've found consumers are partial to their favorite flavors but in our experience, no flavor has been quite as polarizing as our banana flavored Laffy Taffy. Our research shows sixty-one percent* of Americans identify banana-flavored Laffy Taffy as their favorite flavor. We built a light-hearted prank surrounding this key insight and had some fun with fans along the way."

I am for sure part of the 61% that is team banana all the way! I did some research here  and the banana only flavor is only available on line at OH!NUTS which comes in 2 different size tubs, or Amazon where it also comes in a tub size. It is also available in a 3.5 oz. peg bag nationwide for a suggested retail price of one dollar, but I was not able to find anyone locally that has it. So I suggest going online and getting a huge tub if it and try to make it last a while.
