Inflation is Bananas!

With inflation the way it is in the Neopian economy it can sometimes be hard to afford even the smallest of luxuries, for example some fresh exotic fruit. But what could a banana really cost, 10 Neopoints? What’s that you say? Bananas cost 60 THOUSAND Neopoints?! Well, that’s just… well, bananas. I guess it’s better than the temporary price of 996,000 last year, but still. Not everyone is lucky enough to be able to spend such an amount for a midday snack. For the less fortunate consumers we’ll need to look somewhere else for our daily dose of fruity goodness. Here are some suggestions on what you can use to substitute bananas with, for all possible banana uses. Hopefully you’ll find something that suits your tastes, and your budget! Prices listed are subject to price fluctuations, especially in this economy. Tchea Fruit Ah, the trusty tchea fruit. You can taste both the blue and yellow! Funnily enough, the blue bits taste like bananas, and the yellow bits taste like blueberries. Strange, but it works. Especially as a substitute for when you’re making blueberry banana muffins! They’re cheap at only 8 Neopoints, but can also be won from the fruit machine. And it doesn’t even cost you to spin, that’s a win!
