3 Handy Tips for Buying CP Le Pan Banana Cake

I lugged home 34 pieces of banana cakes, and it’s still not enough to be shared with my banana cake-lover family.

Many happy souls (and tummy) in Malaysia now


I jokingly said that perhaps the Immigration Office might stop me for banana cake-smuggling !

Here are some buying tips:


#1 Shelf life

As the banana cake has short shelf life, it is important to check expiry date before buying. On Friday, the latest expiry date available is Monday. So this means, 4 days shelf life is the best that I could find.

This obviously means to buy it at the very last day of your trip in the Kingdom.


#2 Where To Buy

Most 7-Eleven at neighborhood areas carry very little supply. Very much a low-supply-due-to-short-demand theory.

Therefore, it. is easier to buy at Bangkok downtown. I bought around 20 odd pieces from Silom area, from few outlets. 5 pieces from 1 store, another 5-6 pieces from another store, etc, etc.

Whilst a store might carry lots of stocks, it it usually a mix of short and ‘long’ expiry date. Check before buying is vital.

Bf bought 10 pieces or so from one single 7-Eleven store at Langsuan area.


#3 Price

Fixed price at 12 baht per piece. This makes a good souvenir, as it is so much cheaper than Tokyo Banana.


Happy shopping!!


Travel opens up a whole new world, which is cliche but true. I am a strong advocate for independent and solo travel. I was born and raised in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia but now live in Bangkok, Thailand, resulted from a chance encounter in 2009 with my why-are-you-Thai bf. I am now split between two countries. One country for my bf, another for the family, for the occasional weekend together.

      Hi Andrea,

      No, I am afraid not … usually the “bigger” 7-elevens in downtown carry quite a fair bit, especially those at Siam area.
