How do you "fill" a banana?

Good question. I'm getting mental images of using a hypodermic needle to inject the stuff in. 16:02, 27 September 2007 (UTC)

Needs sourcing[edit]

There's no real evidence that this merits a spot in Wikipedia. I took out the YouTube link, which doesn't count as a legitimate source. Please provide mainstream sources. Kroyw 21:42, 7 October 2007 (UTC)

I found this banana boat page under the see also section of the Smores page

How/why is this page different from another banana boat reference at wikipedia ?

Hypodermic needle...thats being ridiculous. A banana boat is a popular camping treat. I found the the instructions below at

Make A Banana Boat

1. Place a banana, in its peel, on a sturdy, double sheet of foil about 12 inches square.

2. With a sharp knife, slice the banana peel lengthwise, beginning and ending about three-quarters of an inch from each end of the banana and cutting about halfway down through the banana flesh.

3. Pry the "slot" in the banana apart with your (somewhat clean) fingers.

4. Fill the slot with chocolate chips and miniature marshmallows.

5. Wrap the entire business in the foil and roast amongst the coals. 6. After everything is nice and gooshy, peel back the foil (leaving a little "boat"-like structure from which to eat), let it cool slightly, and eat with a spoon.

'Banana banana'[edit]

I've moved this section here for the time being:

In an alternative arrangement, known as a banana banana, the banana is sliced on its side edge rather than on its concave side. This form of the treat has the advantage that the banana does not fall over when placed on a dinner plate or other flat surface, and can easily be cooked without foil on a barbeque grill without falling over. The name of the banana banana originates from its shape: instead of the boat-like appearance of the banana boat, the banana banana simply resembles a banana.

To me it looks like nonsense (or somebody's personal invention), and I can find no information elsewhere. Anybody care to chime in?
