I think GB said either. To me seltzer is short for Alka Seltzer which is an indegestion tablet. I assume that is the same basis as the soda water, which here mean bicarbonated soda, like the stuff you get from those soda syphons every home bar had in the 60's with the gas bomb in the neck.

No, not just chocolate, there are others. :-)

Bilby, not an answer to your question, YET, but I thought you might find this interesting. :-)

Egg Cream, History of New York Egg Cream, Egg Cream Recipe


And here is a recipe for MOCHA EGG CREAM, but there are other, like strawberry, etc.

Mocha Egg Cream

2 tbsp coffee liqueur
3 tbsp whole milk
1 tbsp chocolate syrup
6 ounces seltzer
  1. Stir the liqueur, milk and syrup together in a 10 ounce glass.
  2. Hold the seltzer water 10 inches from glass.
  3. Pour in steady stream so it drives seltzer below milk and creates a froth.
  4. Serve immediately.

Hey Gossie that was an interesting article. I like the sound of the mocha too. Take the taste of the diet topping away. (I have no idea why I picked up the diet version. It doesn't taste "real" but I'm stuck with it now.) I have a bottle of coffee liqueur!
Will give it a whirl.

Every Sunday night or Monday morning, I very dutifully trawl the grocery adverts from the mail and make up my shopping list, filled with the specials that I am interested in but I don't take for gospel. On the back of that list, I put the bits that I need. Very organised you see!! Only problem is... I don't always remember to pack the list!!! Try to remember to take it straight to my handbag but then I forget to get rid of them at the end of the week and I can stand in the shop going thru a multitude of lists!! Am working on getting better. Slowly succeeding. Slowly...

There's a Vanilla Egg Cream too. I had thought there was a Strawberry one too, but haven't found it yet.

Don't stress Gossie about the strawberry one. I only have chocolate and caramel syrups, so I'll try with those and the alcoholic one before I spread my wings further. Thanks though for thinking of me!

Wasn't stressing, was researching :-)

There was an episode of one of Bobby Flay's programs, and he had gone into a place and had an egg cream. He mentioned how good it was, and I guess it stuck in my head. When this topic came up again, it peaked my interest again. :-)
