Happy 100th Birthday to the Banana Split – not the old t.v. show of course, the dessert. What I found most interesting in this article is this: “At the turn of the century, there were no commercially prepared medications, so pharmacists became masters of flavor and were known for their sweet treats.” This certainly explains the early scenes in It’s a Wonderful Life when Jimmy Stewart’s character, as a kid, is working in a pharmacy/soda fountain. Never gave those scenes a second thought before reading this article – it all makes sense though.
Time to Celebrate….
