The Origin of the Name 'Banana Split'
Have you ever wondered why it's called a Banana Split? It's because the banana is split down the middle, creating the perfect base for this popular sundae.
The Invention of the Banana Split
The Banana Split is a classic found in ice cream parlors worldwide for many decades. It was invented in the USA by Letty Lally in Columbus, Ohio, who served this ice cream creation in 1904. Responding to a customer's request for an unusual dessert, Lally served a split banana along with ice cream, syrup topping, and whipped cream in a pickle dish.
In Germany, it became known as 'Bananensplit' after World War II. Today, it's one of the most popular ice cream desserts.
