While flipping between the men’s NCAA lacrosse playoffs and the O’s game (a very Baltimore-esque spring activity) the mood struck me for an egg-custard snowball with marshmallow. Even though all Baltimore residents perceive snowballs to be a well-known, universally enjoyed summer treat, rarely are snowballs found (or even heard of) outside the tri-state area. This is because what we now know as a snowball around these parts actually may have originated in Baltimore.
Most of the syrups and ice machines are sold by the locally owned supply house Koldkiss, which has been in the game for more than 40 years. (The company's brewmaster is even credited with the invention of Skylite's secret recipe.)
