The banana split was invented in 1904 by 23 year old pharmacist David Evans Strickle. In between filling prescriptions he played at the pharmacy's soda fountain making his ice cream creations. Walgreens is credited with spreading the popularity of the banana split. The early drug stores adopted the banana split as a signature dessert. Fountains in the stores attracted customers who might otherwise have been just as satisfied having their prescriptions filled at some other drug store in the neighborhood.
