Peter is correct. There were promo sets distributed by Chiquita that were never used on bananas. Several collectors, myself included, have these promo sets. I do not have it on my site. But labels absolutely did appear on bananas as well. Gerri was confused about that for several years but also came to understand that this is the case. I have had a small end of a roll as well. The labels on the roll were all the same, similar to the Minnesota Vikings roll that you show.
