Malted near ENpt?

My mom has been craving a good old fashioned malted. Anyone know of a place that still makes them (and I mean a malted - not a milkshake or a Fribble). She lives in East Northport.

  1. I think that Munday's in Huntington Village would have malteds. Also, call Tim's Shipwreck Diner in Northport.

      Bingo for both. I'll be seeing Mom soon and hope to quell her malted fix - she is disabled with MS, so it is not an easy thing to do for her.

    2. Out of sheer frustration at finding even a halfway decent malted - I finally realized that the best alternative was to go to the supermarket and buy some Carnation Malted Milk (either original or chocolate flavor). The rest was easy and it's a heck of a lot cheaper.

      1. I know they have milkshakes, not sure about malteds:

        Wolfies Frozen Custard
        42 Woodbine Ave.
        Northport, New York 11768

        Really good frozen custard

          Just called them - they do not make malteds. But thanks for the suggestion!

        2. What about that ice cream shop across from the Shipwreck whose name I cant remember. It's old-fashioned so there's a good chance. And what about Friendly's on Lkfld. Rd.

            Mom specifically doesn't want Friendly's. If someone can remember the name of the ice cream shop, though, I'll call them. Thanks for the suggestions!

              I think its called the Sweet shop or Northport Sweet Shop. It's definitely worth a try - very old fashioned place...
