      1. So there's no debate here... http://www.foxs-syrups.com/egg_cream....

        1. Thanks, I didn't think so, but my friend insisted that the milk was last! what a bozo!

          1. I always thought that chocolate egg cream was redundant. Any other "flavor" wouldn't be an egg cream.

              Growing up in Sunnyside Queens there was an option of a vanilla egg cream. I used to switch back and forth. Always had a couple of pretzel sticks out of the container on the counter also.
              Three for a dime. ( Circa 1969 ).

            2. Coffee egg creams rock as well as chocolate--I never really like the vanilla

                Ice cold milk is the key to a great egg cream.
