I'm still lamenting the closing of the Reisterstown Twin Kiss, and it's homemade root beer that you took home in glass gallon jugs.
And I used to love their pizza, too. It was probably the first (and still best of course) soft ice cream I ever had starting in the mid 50's.
The Friendly's in Reisterstown closed, too.
My daughter and I noticed last week. We wound up at a Dunkin Donuts/Baskin Robbins instead, with their ice cream shakes. I noticed that 95% of their interior signeage features Oreos. They must have some sort of deal with Oreo.
As to root beer, funny story. My husband (whom some of you may remember from the old crab cake fest years back) is English. When he came to the US for the first time in 1991, he'd never had root beer, but had heard of it as a uniquely American treat. Someone poured him a glass, and . . . AACK!
He had no idea it was a sweet soda! He thought it was some sort of rooty-tasting beer
" /> He's never had it since, and thinks it's gross that I love it. lol
