If you’ve been to Guatemala you’ll be aware that it’s cheap. You’ll also realise pretty quickly that food wise it’s always second best to its northern amigo Mexico. At least in my opinion. So to find some intriguing local treats in Guatemala is always nice. Enter frozen banana on a stick wrapped in white chocolate with nuts on top, which I tried while backpacking the old streets of Antigua.
Where can you find the Frozen banana on a stick?
We found it in the town of Antigua. In a local shop near our hostel El Hostal. It is stored in the freezer.
How much does the Frozen banana cost?
Mine was a big one and cost just 3Quetzals. That’s about 40 US cents! A bargain.
What does the Frozen banana taste like?
No surprises here. It tastes exactly as you’d imagine. Chopped nuts on the top, crunchy white chocolate coating and a frozen banana inside. Well recommended as a quick bite as you walk through the streets of Antigua!
