Oh. Chocolate Covered Frozen Bananas.

One my of my favorite treats are chocolate covered frozen bananas.  So when I went to Cali, my friends took me to Balboa Island which houses the two places that claim to be the original frozen banana stand.  I took the plunge and had TWO frozen bananas that day –one from The Original Frozen Banana Stand and one from Dad’s Original.

Prices were comparable from both stands, but Dad’s Original had better service and you could see all the toppings from the window –which was cool to see when it was your banana’s turn to get dressed up.  🙂  Also, both stands sell Balboa bars, which is ice cream on stick and covered in your choice of topping.  Both places were good, but Dad’s Original was better!  It was more fun over there.  

I couldn’t have asked for a better afternoon!  Great treats with great friends in an awesome place.  Balboa was cute and small, but I will always remember the chocolate covered frozen bananas.  Ok, I’m going to lift!  Happy Saturday!

Here’s mine from Dad’s Original — with butter brickle! This was the best one! I could eat 5,698 of these.

 

Snow Station -California!

I just got back from California – a well needed trip!  We ate A LOT of food, but the Snow Station was one of my favorite places during vacation.  They call it “shaved snow” which reminds me of shaved ice with ice cream mixed in.  So it’s icy and creamy, and the flavors and toppings are out of this world.  This place is amazing.  I’m craving it as I write this!

My favorite!

This place is craaaazy good!  My favorite was Brandon’s Breakfast: Vanilla shaved snow, cereal toppings, pound cake, bananas, and condensed milk.  This was legit.  As of now, Snow Station is only available in CA, but I would love for them to make their move towards the east coast, but drop one in the Kansas City area.  OR maybe I’ll just have to move to Cali…

Strawberry and Vanilla with mochi, strawberries, and white chocolate! Yum!

There were a lot of us eating and we demolished all of it.  🙂
