LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: When Sean Adler stepped into the tank seeking $150,000 for a 10% stake in his banana preservation tool brand- Nana Hats, the Sharks immediately burst out laughing. The silicon hats topped with their uber cute crochet covers were immediately compared to socks and mocked as "socks for bananas."

But once Adler began sharing the impressive sales figures and his profit margins on the $12.99 banana hat to keep the bananas fresher longer, the Sharks couldn't help but be impressed. Despite Mark Cuban, and Daymond John opting to sit out from making the deal, Kevin O'Leary, Lori Greiner, and guest Shark Peter Jones, were all ears. While Kevin attempted to pitch a deal, Peter immediately jumped in to make an offer. The British Shark was however unwilling to go in solo, he offered to invest $75,000 and requested one of his fellow Sharks to chip in for the remaining capital. Lori offered to partner with Peter and claimed that they could go global with their mission to save bananas. Despite all the jokes and laughs, Adler left 'Shark Tank' with a deal from Peter and Lori.

It wasn't just Lori and Peter who were fascinated by the Nana Hats, several fans took to Twitter to not only laud the interesting idea behind the product but also declare that they needed it in their life. A fan tweeted, "At first, I thought this was bananas but it's a cool product. Glad he got a deal! #SharkTank." "I am so excited for #NanaHats! My whole family is about to get one for Christmas! #SharkTank," wrote a fan. "I need some #NanaHats! I lose a lot of bananas due my bananas going bad too fast. #SharkTank," added a fan.

Another fan shared, "I want a Nana hat and I don't even care for bananas. #SharkTank." "“F***in nana hats, god dammit why didn’t I think of that!!” - another peaceful Friday night staying in watching #SharkTank," joked a fan. "8 to 12 days longer to eat my bananas is no monkey business! #SharkTank #NanaHats," commented an impressed fan about the product's ability to keep banans fresh for longer. Guest Shark Daniel Lubetzky too chimed in with praises for Nana Hats, "What’s cool about “Nana’Hats” is that on top of a “cute” concept there’s an underlying functional value for a problem that he actually solves in a creative way. That is part of what I love about America, entrepreneurs and #SharkTank ! @ABCSharkTank @dragonjones @LoriGreiner."





With all this interest from fans for Nana Hats, we wouldn't be surprised if they're sold out during the Holiday season.

'Shark Tank' Season 14 airs every Friday at 8/7c on ABC.
