I'm a Trader Joe's employee – there's a heartbreaking reason why bananas are always only 19 cents

A TRADER Joe's employee has revealed the heartbreaking reason bananas are always 19 cents.

The reason shoppers can always count on bananas for a cheap and healthy snack is a conversation the company's CEO had some time ago.

In an episode of a new podcast “Inside Trader Joe’s,” CEODan Bane shared why bananas are so cheap.

He said the reason they decided to lower the price of the bananas was a conversation he had with an elder customer years ago in a store in Arizona.

At the time bananas were sold in packages containing four or five, reports Reader's Digest.

One day Dane spotted a woman looking at the packaged bananas but not taking them.

He proceeded to approach her and asked her “Ma’am, if you don’t mind me asking, I saw you looking at the bananas, but you didn’t…put anything in your cart.”

The woman replied:“Sonny, I may not live to that fourth banana.”

That was the moment Dane decided bananas needed to be sold individually, dropping the price to 19 cents.

Meanwhile, a Starbucks worker has revealed the common mistake customers always make.

Sharing a clip on Tiktok, the barista explained that customers always make the same mistake when ordering a macchiato.
