Banana Split: The Perfect Dessert For Couple Like Us!

by: Mhe-anne L.O.Isidro

Aside from Peanut Butter, Red and I discovered a special dessert for two, that will surely not cause a marital break - up (although it is called a split). With two spoons in tow, we could be on the same boat and enjoy this sweet summer's delight together. Banana Split

Banana Split is a dessert made of a peeled banana cut in half lengthwise filled with scoops of ice cream in a row between the split banana and served in a long dish called a boat. Hubby goes banana over bananas while I can't have it because it causes bloating and excessive gas in my stomach. But I go gaga over any flavors of ice cream, while hubby just crave for chocolates.

For our first summer as a couple, we were doubly lucky to have Banana Split for free, not once but twice, courtesy of Pinac Heirloom Capampangan Cuisine and Pizza Hut.

2/F UP Town Center, Katipunan, QC
As a reward for making a video message for my mom last May 9, 2014 at the UP Town Center's Reel Love Booth, we were given a coupon for a free Banana Split at Pinac Heirloom Capampangan Cuisine, a resto that showcases the Kapampangan cuisine of Candaba, Pampanga [Philippines]. 

Pinac's Banana Split consists of a peeled banana cut in half lengthwise with three scoops of ice cream - mango, ube and chocolate and topped with red beans and macapuno. I guess I had all the ube (purple jam) ice cream and the macapuno while Red devoured the banana in no time as well as the chocolate and mango ice cream. Yummy! Surprisingly though, we didn't find Banana Split on Pinac's menu. With its taste, I believe that this Banana Split should be a mainstay!

Pizza Hut at SM Sucat

Pizza Hut Banana Split is a dessert consisting of three scoops of vanilla ice cream sprinkled with chocolate sauce, caramel sauce and whipped cream lined in row between the split banana. Like Pinac's resto, the Banana Split isn't part of Pizza Hut's menu, but it was served to us last May 27, 2014 as a reward for taking the Pizza Hut Feedback online survey in another Pizza Hut resto.

Banana Split is officially our fave Summer dessert!
