Today(25 August) is the National Banana Split Day

It is the day to go bananas -- with ice cream, whipped cream and nuts

The Banana Split Day is a great celebration of this completely shareable dessert

Outdated and with a propensity for driving toward childhood , parting a banana split will doubtlessly set you in good mood

The original banana split was made in a pharmacy instead of an ice cream parlour in 1904

It was invented by David Evans Strickler, a pharmacist's apprentice.

He loved messing around with soft drinks, sundaes and  exploring differemt combinations in his free time

His creation turned out to be so famous with the school that students were willing to pay double amout of a normal sundae

Now, banana splits accompany a wide assortment of sauces, toppings, and fruit additions
