Southern Utah’s Most Apeeling New Business
Cedar City is home to a brand-new business named Dippers specializing in bananas.
According to Britannica.com, “Bananas are thought to have been first domesticated in Southeast Asia, and their consumption is mentioned in early Greek, Latin, and Arab writings. Shortly after the Spanish landed in the Americas, bananas were taken from the Canary Islands to the New World, where they were first established in Hispaniola and soon spread to other islands and the mainland.”
According to their Instagram page, Dippers is a frozen banana shop run by two Southern Utah University students Oliva and Ian Small. Ian is pursuing a degree in music education, while Olivia is studying art.
The interior is cute and cozy, and the frozen bananas are delicious. I went with a friend, and he ordered The Campfire, a smores-inspired banana covered in chocolate and a smores mix with a marshmallow drizzle. I ordered the Locomo covered in chocolate and coconut with a caramel drizzle. We also bought some of their banana nut bread as well.
If you’ve decided this all sounds delicious, Dippers is at 18 North 100 West in Cedar City.
