HELL Pizza have created a health conscious dessert that packs a punch and leaves you wanting more. At only $4, each frozen banana is dunked in rich Belgian Chocolate and coated in crunchy hazelnuts or popping candy for the adventurous. I've seen a lot surfacing social media lately about these treats handmade in NZ and had to try them out for myself to see if they were worth the hype.
I tried out the hazelnut version which I found to be a more a health conscious treat. I had been sitting for a while as I bought it on my way home from being in town (a 15 minute drive) and the day was warm. I was slightly worried it may have melted but the chocolate shell stayed solidified. Because of this, when I bit into it the banana was soft like ice-cream. It tastes like the outside chocolate shell of a Ferrero Rocher with the crunch of the nuts but the smoothness of the chocolate paired with the creamy texture of Nice Cream. These are definitely a go-to option if you're out and about wanting to treat yourself.
Let's take a look at what HELL Pizza Killer Bananas* are made of and the health benefits each ingredient has.
Chocolate has and always will be a crowd pleaser but it can be a guilt-free treat from time to time as it does have a variety of health benefits. Not only is cacao considered a super-antioxidant but it's also labeled a mood boosting food that promotes feelings of joy and may help prevent mild depression.
Creamy, rich, and sweet, bananas are a favourite food for everyone from babies to oldies. They're naturally sweet and can help you curb your sweet tooth. They're a great source of potassium, vitamin B6 and vitamin C.
Hazelnuts and chocolate are a match made in heaven, just think Nutella or Ferrero Rochers - yum! Hazelnuts have many health benefits as they're rich in dietary fibre along with being a great source of copper, manganese, vitamin E and iron.
