Festive banana toppers?

Do you remember bunches of bananas being sold in the store with colored cellophane wrapped around the stems, 20+ years ago? I certainly do, but I can't find any proof on the Internet of it being a thing. Imagine a 4 inch square of cellophane, placed over the stem, then wrapped with a rubber band.

This was inspired by finding this picture of me as a child wearing a banana costume
for Halloween circa 1990. I remember being disappointed that the only cellophane we could find wasn't a perfect match for what was in the store, which I think was red.
Do you remember this? Better yet, can you find a picture of bananas presented this way? And why on earth did they do that?
