The Great Food Search: That’s the Way the Banana Splits

by Terrance McArthur

It happened in 1904: Latrobe, Pennsylvania. “Doc” Strickler, an optometrist, cut a banana lengthwise, added three different scoops of ice cream, topped it with strawberries, raspberries, crushed pineapple, marshmallow syrup, chopped nuts, and pitted black cherries. That was the first Banana Split. It was a hit, and Strickler eventually bought the pharmacy/soda fountain downstairs from his office.

Great Food Search … And the Food Trucks Go Rollin’ Along

by Terrance McArthur
