Banana Cream Flavor Deep Dive

Was it the creamy vanilla or the indulgent banana or just the fact that we put a pie in a can? Whatever it was, y’all went absolutely bananas for Banana Cream when we launched our Minions-inspired flavor back in June of last year. And we’ve got some good news… we’ve brought Banana Cream back for good. Here’s all you need to know about this creamy and delectable new OLIPOP flavor: 

Meet Banana Cream 

We know the flavor Banana Cream sounds a bit weird… but *takes sip* it’s actually really good. This surprisingly delightful soda melds creamy vanilla and sweet banana together for a taste best described as banana cream pie in a can. It’s a flavor unlike anything we’ve created before, and we know you’re tempted to get a taste.

Banana Cream Inspiration Story

To be honest, we didn’t want to make this soda flavor. But when Minions: The Rise of Gru launched in theaters in July of 2022, we set out to create a Minion-inspired soda. When we asked Gru’s lovable and yellow evil henchman, it’s not hard to guess the flavor they requested…. BANANA! And who can say no to a minion?! 


We unveiled our new limited-edition Banana Cream flavor in June of 2022. And, quite frankly, we were surprised by the response. It was so popular that a little over a month later we completely sold out. So many of you wrote us about how much you loved this wild and wacky banana-powered beverage. And we had requests pouring in to make this diabolically delicious flavor a permanent installment. Thanks to you banana lovers out there, that’s exactly what’s happening. Now you can shop this banana cream pie-in-a-can flavor anytime. As the minions say, “BANANA!” 

Banana Cream Nutrition

In addition to satisfying the world’s most lovable evil henchman, Banana Cream offers a nutritionally delicious treat. Unlike actual banana cream pie, our prebiotic soda has significantly less sugar at 4g. And it swaps the artificial ingredients you might find in a traditional soda for plant-based ingredients and 9g of fiber. 


Like all of our sodas, Banana Cream is made with an in-house proprietary blend we dubbed OLISMART that consists of eight unique botanicals, plant fibers, and prebiotics (the primo food source for beneficial bacteria), each hand-picked for their biome-supporting benefits. Our OLISMART blend combines three different prebiotic fibers — chicory root, Jerusalem artichoke, and cassava fiber — that feed the gut microbiome. And it’s naturally sweetened with banana puree, natural banana cream flavor, cassava root syrup, vanilla, and stevia leaf.
