We have been vacationing in Jamaica since the late 80's and have been there several times when bananas were hard to find for a while, usually iin the wake of a hurricane. When this happens we learned to NEVER order a Dirty Banana or Hummingbird unless there is real banana available. They sometimes use Banana Liquer which tastes terrible in drinks calling for real banana. Let's hope for a recovery to the banana crop real soon.
We were there a couple years ago after a hurricane and they were rationing bananas. The poor thing were bruised all up but still tasted great. They actually used face banana flavoring in the dirty bananas for a while.
Heading home in two weeks and am glad to hear that there are bananas.
A little O/T but when we were at CSS in 2011 my wife wasn't able to have mojitos (her favourite) after the first few days as they had "run out of mint".................although there always seemed to be some around to garnish the desserts!!!
