The Yummy Side of Life…


The Split Banana…

Soooo I have to rave about the new local ice cream shop in town. The Split Banana opened in March and is absolutely delightful! It is co-owned by Nick Blanton (I forget the other guy’s name… Sorry!). His sister is Erin, co-owner (with their mom) of the local toy store–Pufferbellies. Yeah, that last sentence didn’t really have a point. Just had to throw a plug in for Pufferbellies too :-p

Anyway… The Split Banana always has a unique selection of sorbets, gelatos, and ice creams. Tonight, they had a new gelato flavor, Cocoa Ancho. Most foodies know that this is actually a pretty typical combination, but I’ve never heard of it as a frozen treat. I tasted it, and was immediately enamored! A rich dark chocolate with the kick of ancho chiles. I had to have it! So I got it as a shake. 4 scoops of the gelato and some creamline (non-homogenized) milk, and off we go! All that to say… It was really good 🙂

Also, THE WHOLE STAFF is always really nice and welcoming. We go there so often, I’m sure some of them are tired of seeing us!
