Robert Walker had been living on a beer and pizza diet while making his way through pilot school and the PT tests were starting to become a struggle. So he decided to adopt a paleo diet, yet still craved ice cream. Being a bit of a scientist, he started experimenting, using his love for banana’s as an inspiration.
Walker finished his service to the Air Force in December, is now a South Park resident and has embraced the spirit of invention that is so celebrated in Dayton and has now turned his attention full time to the dessert product he’s crafted.
What he created is an all natural dairy free alternative to ice cream that is made out of bananas! There’s no added sugar or artificial ingredients, made with wholesome and healthy fruit without any fillers like other ice creams. It’s totally gluten free, totally vegan, totally paleo, and according to local reviews, totally delicious Fronanaa!
But don’t take our word for it, head down to the Black Box Improv Theatre at 518 E. Third Street today and join the celebration that will be the launch for The Fronana Kickstarter. From 1:30- 3pm you can join the festivities which will include a Fronana eating contest to win a years supply of Fronana. If you can’t make it to the kickoff, you’ll still have a chance to help, just visit the Fronana webiste.
You may have seen Fronana around town, as Bobby has hooked his cart to his bicycle and been making the rounds, most recently down at the Yellow Cab food truck rally and Saturday night market. The demand is building for Fronana and next up is a plan to open a Scoop Shop. Bobby has applied to the Activated Spaces program, and hopes to be successful in that process, which would help him open a downtown shop. But he’s got plans even bigger than that and talks about getting Fronana on the shelves of Trader Joe’s and Whole Foods.
