This past weekend, I went on an adventure to find the perfect summer treat to beat the heat! While I was thinking of all different places, I remembered about this little gem in my own backyard! Dad’s Original Frozen Banana located on Balboa Island in Newport Beach, California. This stand opened in Newport Beach in the year 1960!
I went on a unusually gloomy afternoon, however don’t let the weather deter you! They also sell donuts, cookies, ice cream, and of course frozen banana’s! I decided to get the ‘Balboa Bar’ with rainbow sprinkles!
The Balboa bar is vanilla ice cream on a stick, dipped in milk chocolate right before your eyes, and sprinkles with your choices such as rainbow sprinkles, chocolate sprinkles, and peanuts. I would tell you about the melting aspect, however we didn’t get that far! It soon when from the stick to my tummy!
If you find yourself in Newport Beach or on Balboa Island this summer, make sure to stop at Dad’s Original Frozen Banana!

Today (as you know) is Friday the 13th. While being Italian-American, we believe that the number 13 is lucky, we are very superstitious. I have gathered a tiny list of things to help make your day more lucky!

To make sure there is no bad luck, make sure that after anything you say to knock on wood! If there is no wood by you, use your head.
When you’re positive, sometimes your day goes right along with it!
Carry your lucky charm.
Has your lucky charm ever let you down before? Make sure to have it with you all day! For Italians, we always have our bull horn necklace on.
Bake 13 cookies.
Nothing is lucky about these, but you’ll be lucky after because you have cookies! But make sure you make a baker’s dozen which is 13! I suggest making these cookies!
Watch your favorite movie.
Nothing makes me happier than watching my favorite movie on a scary day like today.
If you don’t have to go out, why go out at all?
But most of all…
