Today {Aug. 25} is National Banana Split Day

Yes, even desserts are celebrated. To join the rest of the food addicts, celebrate today by eating a banana split, whether they're homemade or ordered from a dessert parlor. But, uh, you wouldn't enjoy the activity if you would have it delivered. Kidding!

Nobody can really trace the history of this food holiday. Some say it was started by a pharmacy student started back in 1904. Those who live in Ohio, however, claim that they were the originators of the food fad. Besides, only Wilmington, Ohio celebrates the Banana Split Festival. I got this from this site.

If you don't know where to start in making your banana split, you can refer to this certain Banana Split recipe for an orgasmic dessert today. People, creative as we are, have allowed the evolution of this dessert. Some experiment with different flavored ice cream. Some modifies the cut of the their bananas and the placement of those banana cuts. The syrup and toppings for the said dessert have a huge selection: cherries, rainbow sprinkles, chocolate syrup, nuts, whip cream, and a lot of other food trinkets that you can think of. Also, the holder of the creation has already been experimented with -- plastic plates, ordinary oval dessert plates and even sundae glass cups.

For an original Banana Split treat, visit Ensogo's deal of the day today -- Old-Fashioned Banana Split at Five Cows Resto & Ice Cream Bar, Trinoma. This dessert is originally priced at Php165, but you can get it for only Php69! I am tempted to go get one; I can use my Paypal.
