Well that is kind of like talking about Martinis.

A true egg cream is only chocolate. A true egg cream will only use Foxes U-Bet chocolate syrup.

Can you make it with other flavors and still call it an egg cream? Well no one is going to arrest you if you did. But if someone were to order an egg cream off a menu and they got something other than chocolate then they may be very very surprised.

Maybe in USA, Massachusetts; but in USA, Brooklyn, NY vanilla egg creams were quite common when they were selling for ten or fifteen cents.

That's cool. I just didn't want you to put yourself out on my behalf. It is interesting though isn't it? I was quite interested in how the name came about. Out of all of those theories, the suggestion still remains that it is a Westernised foreign word. The Westernisation of foreign words came up in another forum I was on only yesterday. It almost diverted me from the subject at hand!!

Think I would probably gag before I got anywhere near the end of the drink!! Way too sweet for me! End up being more sober than a judge!!

The selzer waters it down quite a bit and the propensity to consume is limited by the cost.

OK well maybe a vanilla one, but I think you will agree that mocha or strawberry would have been out of the question.
