I lugged home 34 pieces of banana cakes, and it’s still not enough to be shared with my banana cake-lover family.
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.
Fixed price at 12 baht per piece. This makes a good souvenir, as it is so much cheaper than Tokyo Banana.
