    Egg Cream

    Ingredients:
    Milk
    Chocolate syrup
    Seltzer or club soda, very cold

    Directions:
    Start by putting about 1 to 1-1/2" milk in a tall glass. Add about the same amount of chocolate syrup. Add the seltzer and mix vigorously until the ingredients are combine. If you've done it correctly, there will be about 2" of white 'cream' at the top of the glass.

    Ditto, except I didn't grow up in Jersey. I wish I could buy Fox's U Bet no one even sells it on line.

    Well, I was bawn and raised on Lawnngggg I-lynddddddd and tasted a few egg creams as well! Of course here in Ohio, they call them "Phosphates". Go figure! but that recipe, Sondray, is a good simple one. Even with skim milk!!! Hahaha

    Part of the "mystique" of an egg cream, despite the fact that there is NO egg and NO cream in them, is that as a kid you got to sit at the luncheonette counter and only had to pay a nickel for one (back in the 50's). Phosphates were 10 when I came to uh-high-uh in the 60's and now they are (if you can find them) $1.75 + tax... I just phone our local soda grill.

    I'll have to check with my LI sister to see if she can find Fox's U-Bet. I'd love to try that one instead of (Mexican) Hershey's syrup! Thanks, May in Jersey!

    Ahhhhhhh.... the yummy memories.

    Most of the cost in ebay is in the shipping.
