This is kinda-but-not-really related to a recent column, so I’ll put it here. I think it’s significantly different from what Cecil wrote about that it doesn’t need to be in another forum.
When I have a light lunch of a banana and a Diet Pepsi, I notice that if I take a bite of banana and wash it down with the pop, I’ll get a mouthful of fizz. Why would this be?
I don’t drink non-diet sodas, so I can’t speak to the non-diet reaction to bananas.
