Tokyo Banana is actually a cake, cream-filled sponge cake that is shaped like a banana. It is comparable to the Twinkie of the US except for its shape.
The standard flavor is, of course, the banana cream flavor. Other variants include chocolate and caramel bananas that come with animal prints. There are also heart and flower printed Tokyo Banana versions. This makes the sweets too cute to eat.
