Draeger's used to stock this but apparently no more. Tried Mollie Stone's. No luck there either. Any suggestions? Mid-Peninsula location preferred. Thanks!

    I was at the Trieste in North Beach a couple of months ago and ordered an egg cream. The barista told me they couldn't get the chocolate syrup any more. I told him that was nuts. I see UBet syrup all over the place in Berkeley. They have it a Berkeley Bowl and I'm pretty sure you can still get it at Saul's.

    So who in the Bay Area makes good egg creams?

      I've also seen it regularly at thePotrero Hill Safeway, with the kosher foods in the ethnic isle.

        I don't know if you have a Lucky's near you, but the one in SF on Fulton has it in their kosher foods section

          I've seen it at Safeway in Oakland with the Passover selections (like Passover Coke, Passover U-Bet's made with sugar rather than corn syrup), so they may sell it year 'round in their kosher section or elsewhere.

            Raley's/Nob Hill sells Fox's UBet. Safeway carries selzer.

              If no consider the delivery system. Screwtop bottle? No. Selzer bottle? Yes.

                    I have absolutely no idea, and could never stand the stuff when I was a kid, but I'd ask at Saul's. Maybe they have it, and if now, maybe they know where.
