The creation of the banana split dates all the way back to 1904. This delicious treat came to fruition not in an ice cream parlor, but in a pharmacy of all places. David Evans Strickler, a pharmacist's apprentice, would experiment with new soda fountain sundaes in his free time. The banana split quickly became wildly popular with the college crowd and eventually the dessert grew into a classic sweet.
Today, people all over the country enjoy banana splits in a variety of ways. The traditional banana split recipe includes scoops of vanilla, chocolate, and strawberry ice cream in between a split banana. To top it off, chocolate syrup, crushed sweet pineapples, and strawberry sauce are added, and then it is garnished with whipped cream, maraschino cherries, and crushed nuts. While the classic recipe still remains popular, people have began personalizing their banana splits to make them their own.
