Happy Chocolate Dipped Frozen Bananas

Ever ponder the history of frozen bananas? Well even if you answered no, I’m going to enlighten you with some banana history!


Don Phillips, aka the frozen banana king, opened the very first banana stand, with the most creative name in history, The Original Frozen Banana. He wheeled out the stand in early 1940’s on Balboa Island in Orange County, California. His idea was so inspiring that a man by the name of Bob Teller ditched his dream job of manufacturing car seat belts to open his own frozen banana stand, The Original Banana Rolla Rama! He thoughtfully opened up shop directly across the street from Phillips stand… drama!

However as the years passed, the world wasn’t big enough for two frozen banana kings. Teller bought out Philip’s business shortly after he passed and expanded to multiple locations.

To this day, frozen bananas are a tradition on Balboa Island.
