Never had a Banana Split before :P I don't like ice cream that much though, so I personally don't believe I'm missing out on anything.

I saw it! *-* Looks pretty good, I'll admit, but I'm still pretty hesitant. Ice cream isn't the best thing for me. It has to be REALLY good for me to enjoy it!

I don't think I've ever had a Banana Split. I love ice cream, I love bananas, but I've never combined them, lol. Best of luck to you!

There are a few things that I will try at different places until I find the right recipe at the right place. I'm picky about my banana splits. They must meet this dragonfly's criteria. I finally found two places that make them differently but both are the best I've ever had.

The first place is about a half mile from my house. I just had one last week for dinner. A little hole in the wall called Connals.

The second place makes them completely traditional. Real Ice cream, real whipped cream. Vanilla, Strawberry, and Chocolate ice cream. Pineapple, chocolate, and strawberry topping. Real whipped cream, nuts and 3 cherries. It's called Fair Oaks Pharmacy and Soda Fountain. I had one for my birthday last year.

The best banana split that I had was from a now defunct place called Witchwood Dairies. It was a place that I frequented as a teen. I used to get at least one a week. They were huge and the BEST. I haven't had a real good one since.

You're right. They used to be made with real ice cream and real whipped cream.

When I was working at a conference center decades ago, they had a small "after hours" snack bar.  (They weren't allowed to compete with the local tourist stops, so couldn't open until 7pm.)

I was working there one night, and realized nobody had gotten bananas from the main kitchen for the splits.  Nobody with a kitchen key could be found, and it was the last night of the conference, so we created the "Don't split so soon".  Basically, a banana-less split with warm fudge brownie.

It was so popular, that it became a regular item on the menu.

(unlike the "replace the banana with a hotdog" idea some joker suggested)
