We are back! It's been a while since we've blogged due to finals weeks, family decisions, and laziness but we're here now and we have a lot to talk about. First on the list, The Twin Kiss. If you're already excited because it sounds amazing then you are right where you should be. The twin kiss has been a family favorite since I was a little girl.

This glorious ice cream establishment opened it's doors in the year 1955 and hasn't stopped pleasing the public since. It also happens to be conveniently only 100 steps from my grandparent's home in PA (that's their house in the background). As a kid I loved it for two reasons. Firstly, the owners keep a pair of white deer on the premises for you to look at and feed. That's right, White deer. They are cute and friendly and always put you in the best of moods.

Second reason for my twin kiss love affair are the Twinkles. At any ice cream parlor you can ask for sprinkles to top your cone but only at the twin kiss can you find Twinkles. These little bits of joy are crushed up pieces of peanut brittle, jimmies, and I'm pretty sure they add a dash magic. I don't know how something so simple can be so utterly amazing - and yet they are.

James had not yet taken his first journey to the kiss but on our last visit to PA the time had come. I'm pretty sure he loved it. I really don't know how you couldn't.


  1. Seriously, seriously. Please ask if you can buy some and send them to me. please. I need them. Bad.

  2. We asked. Sorry, they say its some secret formula so they won't sell it on its own.

  3. Megan could make money writing testimonials!

  4. We found a Twin Kiss only about 15 minutes from our apartment!

  5. Wait... Twin Kiss is a franchise!?
