Today is National Banana Split Day! The delicious mixture of chocolate, vanilla, and strawberry ice cream, on top of a split banana and covered with flavored syrups and additional toppings, was supposedly invented in 1904.
Especially enjoyable on one of these hot summer days. Note that some references say August 25, not August 10, is the official day. Just Split the difference, and chow down on a banana split both days. Enjoy!
