Thanks for mentioning "snails" -- that is what we always called danish pastries. My brother and I would arrive home from West Portal School and see the familiar green box (no it was not pink) and know that our mother had been downtown and stopped at Epplers Bakery to buy "yellow snails" -- actually custard butterhorns.

Do you know where the term snails came from?
