I remember when I was ten years old and I played school baseball. Before every game I would always put a root beer barrel in my mouth and chew it up and the flavor would be in my mouth throughout the game. I felt it gave me the extra push to give 110%.
We only lost one game in our league but that was the day I woke up tired and forgot my root beer barrel. I still don’t know if it was because they were a better team or because I broke game tradition. I really believe the root beer barrels held that much of a significance but that’s just me. Right after the games I would get a root beer barrel as soon as I walked inside my house.
I stop that tradition as soon as I stopped baseball. But 7 years later to this day I started eating them after meals and just savored the great flavor, which I thought was the greatest candy of all time. This just proves to me that I can never grow out of the traditional root beer barrels. ~ Ross from Pennsylvania
