In 1904, David Evans Strickler, of Tassel Pharmacy in downtown Latrobe, Pa., invented sundaes at the pharmacy’s soda fountain. (Yep, same Latrobe known for its famous friends and neighbors, golf legend Arnold Palmer and Fred Rogers of “Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood of Make-Believe”!) News of his banana-based sundae spread quickly and the recipe was published in 1907. He later purchased the pharmacy and named it after himself.
Celebrate the classic ice cream dish in its birthplace at the The Great American Banana Split Celebration in Latrobe, August 23-25, 2019.
