    • The origin of the banana split is traced back to the year 1904, in the city of Latrobe, Pennsylvania, USA. A 23-year-old pharmacist’s apprentice named David Evans Strickler is believed to have invented the triple ice cream sundae with banana.

    Back in the early days, a banana split was a highly priced dessert and was sold for 10 cents, which was twice the price of other ice cream sundaes.
