Get on the banana boat bandwagon - August 10 is National Banana Split Day!
Split a 'nanner down the middle, pile on the chocolate, strawberry and vanilla ice cream and don't forget to dig out your hot fudge sauce and pineapple topping! Salute today with a flavor party in your mouth (and a wee bit of brain freeze).
Thanks to a pharmaceutical twentysomething in 1904, the banana split was born out of sheer ice cream creativity. After experimenting with different flavor combos, David Strickler decided adding a banana to the bottom of the dish was just the right touch.
Today is also National S'mores Day, so finish off your ice cream coma with a nice toasty graham-cracker-chocolate-marshmallow mess by the campfire - that is, if your banana split isn't quite enough and leaves you wanting s'more.
