Dessert Injures Four at Florida Restaurant

Four people who at one time fell in love with Bananas Foster might have already fallen out of love with the flaming dessert, after suffering burns during a Foster-related "explosion." If only they'd have worn their full-body, fire-retardant dining-out suits!

The four potassium-seeking patrons of Palm Harbor, Florida's Ozona Blue Grill ("the only restaurant with a pool and an ocean!!") sustained burns of varying degrees of intensity, and two were taken to a local hospital. The accident occurred after the server preparing the dessert used too much alcohol in setting it on fire, which made it go kaboom.

Say what you will about Twinkies, but they've never burned anyone. [MyFox Tampa Bay. Image via Stuart_spivack/flickr.]
