Any place serving these kind of deserts for this many years deserves a taste. Don't be fooled as there are several places along this same street serving the "copy". Go for the real thing. It was delicious and well worth the stop. We were there...More

Frozen bananas don't sound exciting--so prepare yourself to be astonished. The dipped frozen bananas prepared by Sugar 'n Spice can change your mind in half a second. Available in several sizes, freshly dipped in chocolate, and coated in your choice of topping, you'll go bananas...More

Their frozen chocolate covered bananas and Balboa bars were a culinary treat. You could pick from about 8 different toppings with the chocolate. My favorite was heath bar crunch. I managed to frequent the place three times during a 6 day stay on the island....More

We had fun visiting after dinner at Ciao. We had a almond chocolate covered banana and a unicorn shake. Both had lots of flavor and affordable.

We stopped for Balboa Bars after a walk around the island. The line was long, I was a little unsure if I wanted to wait but it moved quickly. My daughters enjoyed their ice cream.

Check out this place while you are on Balboa Island. Basically a frozen banana dipped in chocolate with topping such as nuts, Oreos, sprinkles, etc. It was actually pretty good. Good service. The kids working it were so excited and thankful with the $1 tip...More

We got an ice cream and a banana frozen. the ice cream was good but the banana did not have a good taste maybe because it was frozen... Even the chocolate around wasn't goo. I was a little disappointed and I expected something else.

We ALWAYS stop on BI for a frozen banana when we have visitors in town. Sugar n Spice has a great selection of sizes and options for toppings.

My sister wanted to stop here for the soft serve, but when I found out they had frozen cheesecake on a stick AND you got your choice of two toppings, I was sold! Nice big slice of cheesecake, chocolate coated and whatever your heart's desire...More
