Banana Split; Happy National Banana Split Day!

National Banana Split Day,

(CTN News) – This year is National Banana Split Day, which is celebrated on February 26th in Odessa, Texas (KMID/KPEJ). Can you tell me what that means to you?

The answer is banana splits for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, according to what we think. Why did we become adults if it wasn’t because we wanted to celebrate this way?

Surprisingly, the original banana split wasn’t created in an ice cream parlor but in a pharmacy in 1904.

Why banana split is called banana split?

Banana splits were the brainchild of David Evans Strickler,  a pharmacist’s apprentice who enjoyed experimenting with new soda fountain sundaes in his free time.

They were so popular with the college crowd that students willingly paid 10 cents, double the price of a normal sundae in those days.

According to legend, Hazard sponsored a competition to invent the new  treat. Hazard’s design featured a that was split in half, three scoops of ice cream, with chocolate sauce, pineapple, strawberry topping, nuts, and whipped cream placed on top.
 A red cherry crowned Hazard’s dessert. Hazard won the competition, and business increased at the restaurant.
 A festival honors Hazard’s invention every June.
The banana split was actually invented by David Strickler in 1904, not Hazard as Wilmington claims.

Banana split: what’s in it?

Banana splits are traditionally made with two sliced in half, three scoops of strawberry, vanilla, chocolate ice cream, whipped cream, and a cherry topped off with whipped cream.

Let us suggest that you have a banana split today. If you want to make one of your own, or buy one, then you should do so. Celebrate these small things, enjoy the day, and don’t let it get you down.
