As summer slows down, and children finally go back to school, it’s time to give yourself a treat. August 25th is National Banana Split Day! Not that you need a special day to enjoy the ultimate ice cream creation, but why not celebrate? You made it through the heat.
It was over a hundred years ago that young David Strickler, a 23-year-old apprentice pharmacist first came up with the culinary delight that changed the course of history. In 1904, he worked at the Tassel Pharmacy in Latrobe, Pennsylvania, and had a flair for inventiveness.
His original creation put 3 scoops – chocolate, vanilla, and strawberry – into a long dish between halves of banana. He topped the extravagant dessert with crushed nuts, whipped cream, and a maraschino cherry. Though Strickler never earned royalties on his invention, through his success, he later became the owner of the pharmacy.
Banana splits later became the calling card of Walgreens pharmacies, which served them and spread their popularity across the nation. That chain owes its success to the treat, as it drew customers away from other businesses.
