Summer Treats in Southern California

March 10, 2009 | By | Comments (2)

  It’s always summer in Southern California…even when it’s not in the rest of the world. On a recent weekend, as my friends at home faced snow, my husband and I took a short trip to Newport Beach, CA, to visit my older sister.

It’s such a beautiful part of the world. But even more special is the weather and the feeling of summer even when its was snowing back in ‘Bama. If you’ve ever been to this area, or if you are planning a trip soon, I suggest a stroll around Balboa Island.

That’s where you’ll find a stupendous summertime treat, the Frozen Banana on a Stick! Created on Balboa Island, it’s a banana frozen on a stick, dipped in chocolate, and rolled in chopped peanuts (or the topping of your choice, like sprinkles). Just tasting it reminded me of summer. And the fact that it’s fruit instead of ice cream underneath all that chocolate made me feel a little better about splurging.
