"There is some debate in our ice cream parlor what the "traditional" split consists of. I did some research before we opened and it seems that this is the most consistently "traditional" split served, even though some have marshmallow, peanuts, crushed cherries and more. I prefer hot fudge over the chocolate syrup, personally :P"

"I like Ilysse! My kind of mom! :D Thank you so much for doing the research on the banana split! I've wanted to know this for quite a while, but never remembered to look it up. This sounds simply delicious and will be on the dessert menu for tonight. :D"
"Good stuff, the kids thought I lost my mind when I served these for dinner Wed night lol, but they were really good. Personally, I think it was healthier than fast food (omega3s from the nuts, calcium from the ice cream - I used low fat but frozen yogurt would be good too if you can find the right flavors - and fruit from the banana, strawberries and pineapple) and it's better to eat it for dinner than try to shove it in on top of a full meal. :) Will make them again, maybe for breakfast ;)"
"This is the way we have our banana splits. They are so good. The wet walnut topping was something we hadn't had before so I used recipe #243235 Wet Nuts Ice Cream Topping. Thanks Karen. Bullwinkle."
"I gave this 5 stars. This is exactly like they serve Banana Splits here in New York. I have not had one since I was a kid. Brings back memories. I can't wait for summer to make these for kids. Thanks for posting! Christine (internetnut)"
"I had forgotten just how good a Traditional Banana Split could be. I think I was probably a teenager that last time I had one. I thought I had walnuts here and I didn't, so I had to skip them. I had an idea on how to make the "wet" walnut topping. I thought I would toast a few walnut pieces and soak them in Torani Vanilla syrup. Hopefully I'll get to try that soon. Thanks for the memories Karen=^..^= ! Nick's Mom"
