National Banana Split Day!


August 25, 2009 is National Banana Split Day!

The perfect recipe for a banana split consists of chocolate, vanilla, and strawberry ice cream, hot fudge, fresh strawberries, whip cream, and don't forget a banana, of course! Americans have been enjoying this delicious dessert for over 100 years.

In 1904 pharmacy student Evans Strickler invented the banana split when he decided to cut a banana in half and pour ice cream and toppings over it. Back then his prized invention sold for only 10 cents!

The best way to celebrate National Banana Split Day is to take part in this American tradition and make your own banana split with your favorite toppings!
