The panda has constant random food benders. After eating a couple dozen wings at Clay's Southwest Flavors (yes, head to that food cart!), I headed with a friend to Foster Burger because I wanted a big dessert.
Foster Burger might be more known for burgers and poutine these days, but there's also a huge banana split on the menu. Yeah, it's actually named "HUGE Banana Split."
For $13, you'll get a dessert that is usually suited to feed a family. Two bananas, 10 scoops of vanilla ice cream, chocolate sauce, berry sauce, caramel sauce, nuts, whipped cream, and five Maraschino cherries. Basically, I was bettering my chances for a diabetic shock.
The server tried valiantly to talk me out of attempting this. This isn't an official food challenge, but generally, I stupidly) tend to ignore any waivers or warnings associated with such challenges.
Note again: I had a decent meal before coming here. I wasn't hungry. Not even close.
The banana split came out in a fairly large bowl, not very deep. The kid in me beamed. Giddy panda moment!
I wanted to officially time my stunt, but my phone refused to cooperate in getting to the stopwatch feature. Good thing, because people kept trying to text or call me while eating. Not sure if that woulda affected the stopwatch feature.
Probably five minutes in, I was done with the actual ice cream. A pool of melted ice cream and sugary syrup awaited. Felt like I'd have a sugar stroke as I fought through all that. Took about 10 minutes, but I finished.
As usual, here's video of some moron eating ice cream:
Needless to say, the server was in disbelief. Eh, just the ol' tapeworm and black hole in the stomach joining forces.
A great banana split. It was especially awesome for the first couple minutes. As I got fluffier with a growing dairy food baby panda, I was just lucky to see straight. Foodies living on the edge. Please note that I'm a trained idiot; others shouldn't do what I do.
But yeah, this is a good place to hit up. I coulda had burgers, poutine, and beer. Instead, I got my panda food baby. I'm a proud papa. 7.5/10
