We escaped some moving responsibilities today and made it over to Balboa Island. If you are ever in Orange County, definitely take a day trip over there. Balboa Island is part of Newport Beach and is a cute little beachy town. We are still a few weeks away from tourist season so it was pleasant. We walked around the town and I got to eat my frozen banana… hooray! They were all out of heath crunch (boo), but I did get to order my 2nd fav… rainbow sprinkles with oreo pieces… yum!
Our favorite Balboa bar / Frozen Banana shop is the Sugar & Spice. A balboa bar is a square chunk of vanilla icecream on a stick… when you order they dunk it in chocolate and then put your toppings on it… super yum! When you order the banana you first have to pick what size. I find that extremely funny. They then unwrap your frozen banana and dunk that into the chocolate and roll in your toppings… yummy!
They have this one and another shop called Dad’s on the same block… each one claiming to be the ‘original’ frozen banana. We are partial to S&S. Everyone here has their loyalties… you are either a Sugar & Spice fan or a Dad’s fan.
We might need to make another trip back before we leave… I consider these yummy treats fruit so its ok. 😉
