15 Of The Best Groupon Replies About The Banana Bunker



On April 1st, 2015, Groupon reminded the world that not only are they a reputable company, but that they also employ people with humor. The company announced on their Facebook that the Banana Bunker, an item used to protect bananas while traveling, was back on their website. Fans of the company immediately took notice of the inappropriate shape of the object and a Groupon employee wittingly took charge in the best April Fools troll yet.

How It All Began

It all started with this post on Facebook. Groupon shared this post announcing that the Banana Bunker was available on their website for purchase. Fans immediately began to make comments and ask questions.

Banana Too Curvy? No Problem!

This user asked if all bananas could fit in this container or if it is one size fits all. Groupon was quick to note that the item is flexible to suit every banana’s needs.

But, Is It Effective?

One customer asked about the effective rate of the item. It is very important to know just how much protection the Banana Bunker will offer. Groupon assured them that there was a 99.9% protection rate to ease everyone’s minds.

Worried About What Others Will Think? Don’t Be.

One customer was worried that their child’s teacher might think the Banana Bunker will look silly or inappropriate. The Groupon employee told them that the teacher will only think that the student is very smart for eating healthy and will definitely not think anything otherwise.

Share The Banana Bunker!

This comment was one of the most memorable out of the entire day. Groupon announced that a healthy snack without any bruises is the best thing to give to a friend, and that you can carry this in your pocket.

You Can Fit More In It!

Sometimes, you don’t want one big banana. You would rather have two smaller ones. If that’s you, then rest assured, the Banana Bunker can most likely fit two in there.

It Doesn’t Hurt!

Groupon didn’t quite clarify just how to use the item during their announcement. After someone asked if the item was painful to use, Groupon assured them that you do not digest it.

It Tastes Great

Sometimes, you just need to know what a product tastes like before you buy it. Groupon conducted their own taste test to give the users the answers they need.
