Agreed.

What! No Hushpuppies? Haven't had an eggcream since I lived in New Yawk. Candy stores/soda shops used to also make Vanilla Egg creams (w vanilla syrup?). Not sure where you would find the syrup. Years ago, my mom found some apparatus where you turn tap water into seltzer (or carbonated water), by putting nitrogen cartridges? (not sure what they were) into a pitcher-like thingy. It was years ago, so don't remember exactly what it looked like. Maybe it worked on the same principle as IC's foam-making thig-a-ma-jig. How's that for a description! You might be able to buy U-Bet on line. Hmmm. Wonder how a strawberry eggcream would taste? Thanks for the memories.

Soda syphon - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

If you use that soda siphon, do you still use seltzer water?

No cos it produces the soda water/seltzer water. You just put water into the siphon and this gas bulb into the neck of the siphon. Each time you press the "gun" mechanism, it releases the gas into the water. I used to love it when mum and dad entertained and we got to have the soda machines out. I lovvved to play with it!! Favourite toy as a kid - fully supervised of course!

$US: 20 - 22; $AU: 22.90 - 25.20 per 750ml
Or about $2.10 Amer. for a "healthy" egg cream.
