Banana Split Wars

Banana split

Driving into work this morning I heard a commercial from Ohio’s tourism department touting different things to do in Ohio, such as the Rock ‘n Roll hall of fame, art museums, zoos and the like.  One caught my ear however: going to the birthplace of the banana split.


Maybe I’ve been lied to for the last six years, maybe the Food Network is wrong…but I was under the impression that the banana split was invented in Latrobe at Valley Dairy.  Guess I’ll have to do some more digging and see what I can come up with, and until then, my shattered dreams will just have to be comforted by some other ice cream…maybe a Blizzard of some sort…


I know it is a little chilly today. But free ice cream is a good thing. April 29 is Free Cone Day at Ben and Jerry’s. Pittsburgh only has 1 Ben and Jerry’s Location in Sq. Hill – 5885 Forbes Ave., Pittsburgh, PA 15217. Thanks to Tom at the DC Metblog for the reminder.
