Thanks for posting that site. I sure yearn for the good old days. Times have changed and unfortunately; not for the better.
We used to drive from Lancaster to get the Easter candies, like the big coconut egg with your names on them. They also had the best peanut butter eggs. When Miesse’s in Lancaster started making them, we stopped going to Reynolds.
Great site, thanks for sharing it. One of the restaurants, D’Andreas in Ct was where a good friend met his wife while she was a waittress there.
thank you, Roossy90! You included a picture of the old Reynold’s candy shop in Wilmington, DE, and I can tell you that their candy was some of the best!! They made specialties for nearly every holiday – for Thanksgiving, it was chocolate turkeys; Halloween meant chocolate pumpkins. The best sellers, though, were the easter eggs, which you could get with a variety of fillings (I think we mostly got the coconut cream one), and you could have your name written in icing on the outside. At least that was what my grandmother did, and she sent the Easter eggs to her grandkids in Michigan!
They made a variety of regular candy as well; my grandmother’s favorite were the dark chocolate non-pareils. Thanks so much for bringing back a favorite memory for me! [:)]
I like that Little Tavern one.. (One with the green roof). You can tell he (or she) is more into serving a burger then what people think of the decor. Great Stuff!
That’s what road food is all about. Great site.
Very nice, thanks. I do love those Little Taverns. Many years ago, I used to eat at one in Silver Spring and one in downtown D.C.
Very cool site!! [8D]
Great pics. Interesting places that would be worth a roadfood stop.
