Happy Banana Split Day!
August 25th is one of the happiest days of the year for children and adults alike. Why? It’s Banana Split Day of course. Perhaps as American as apple pie, the banana split dates back to 1904 and originally cost $.10
As it has grown in popularity, so too has it grown in complexity. With over 400 varieties on Foodily, there’s a banana split for everyone (well, everyone who likes ice cream and bananas.)
Let’s break it down:
Ice Cream: Vanilla, Chocolate, Strawberry – but nobody will fault you from going the path of coffee, mint chocolate chip myriad other choices!
Sauces: Hot Fudge, Pineapple, Caramel, Marshmallow, Butterscotch, Dulche, Strawberry Perserves
Garnish: Peanuts, Pistachios, Whipped Cream, Cherries, Crushed Graham Crackers, Pecans, Grated Chocolate, Chocolate Chips
The Banana: Yes, even the banana presents us with options. Grilled, caramelized, sliced lengthwise, diced
Food, we love you.
