Banana Split Nostalgia

When was the last time you had a banana split? We used to have them when my parents were out and we would stay at my Aunt E's house. The banana split was said to be invented in 1904 at a soda fountain. It cost 10 cents, twice the amount of other ice cream sundaes but it obviously was worth the money.

The classic banana split is made with a split banana...

and three scoops of vanilla, chocolate, and strawberry ice cream on top.

Pineapple topping is spooned over the vanilla ice cream, chocolate syrup over the chocolate, and strawberry topping over the strawberry ice cream.

It's topped with whipped cream and a maraschino cherry. And it's delicious! Perfect for sharing!

Variants on the toppings, of course, such as caramel or butterscotch. Yum!
