'Pickle Splits' Exist Now And Might Finally Take The Craze Too Far

What is up with the current pickle craze? Everything seems to be about them lately.

I mean, I get it. Pickles are great, but from pickle chips to pickle-flavored ice cream, when is the craziness going to stop?

Heck, you can even get a sandwich where the entire bun is replaced with a pickle!

I'm not kidding! Look at those things!

On one hand, they look delicious and I'd totally try one, but on the other, maybe the craze is getting a bit out there.

The latest viral pickle sensation comes from the Pine Mountain Country Coffee House in Festus, Missouri.

If you looked at that pic and said "That looks like a banana split with the banana replaced by pickles!" you're absolutely right.

I am both disgusted and intrigued.

On one hand, what did the humble banana do to deserve this?


The banana gets surprisingly few opportunities to be the star of the dessert show. Why take this one away from them?

On the other hand, I'm intrigued by how the pickle-y flavor would play with the other elements of the split.

Customers seem to like it, anyway.

Okay, fine, I'll admit that I definitely want to try it at least once. Even if it's weird.
