I like having a banana split dessert sometimes, don’t you? Here’s what happened to me one day!


Deciding it was time for a banana split, I went to the Dairy Queen close to our house. They made me one, and I took it home to enjoy. It looked yummy, with the ice cream, three toppings (pineapple, strawberry, and chocolate), whipped cream, and a maraschino cherry on top.

So, I’m digging in, the cool creamy ice cream melting in my mouth, when I uncover this…this…ugly, black, vile, rotten, banana. It was disgusting. Ewww!

I wasn’t in the mood to drive back to the store for another one, so I just removed the rotten one, and added a good banana that I had at home, instead. I still liked the ice cream…it was fine.

I did, however, write a very descriptive letter to the owners of the franchise. I told them of the horror I’d found in my banana split from their store, even though, using the word banana really wouldn’t be correct in this case. It was too far gone, at that point.

A while later, I received a most apologetic letter in the mail. They were so sorry, and to make amends, they’d included two coupons for free desserts from their store. Yes, I used them, and I’ve been back to that particular store again, and never had any more rotten bananas.

Really, though, who would do this…I’m sure the employee could tell that the banana was rotten, when they’d put the split together. What were they thinking…they’d just cover it up with ice cream and no one (me) would notice? If, by chance, they’d ran out of bananas at the time, they could have just said so, couldn’t they? It boggles my mind to wonder what this person was thinking.

I don’t know if this person got fired or reprimanded or not, but I would hope they at least got a lecture about safe food handling and customer service.

Do I still like banana splits – yes. Have I ever gotten another one from this store – no.  However, there was one more incident at this store concerning banana splits, which will be my next story.

Does any else have crazy food stories, or is it just me? 🙂

  1. Yes, I’ve decided that making banana splits at home is much better, too! You get to make it just like you want! Thank you for your comment and for reading my blog, Y. Zheng! 🙂
