The recipe I used was at the beginning of this thread, I think Charlie's.

I used:

Garelick Farms whole milk

Hershey's syrup

Adirondack Seltzer

I'll be honest tho, I didn't use measurements, except by eye'ing it.

BTW, whoever said seltzer and club soda is the same is wrong. They are close, but seltzer is peppier.

I think your problem is that you're using DIET syrup. LoL Try Hershey's Chocolate Syrup, make the egg cream .. if you like the taste, go for whatever DIET syrup makes that taste or close to that taste. :-) And then you can smack me later when you gain weight from the FULL CALORIE egg cream. hehehehe <goes to her corner and hides>

I tried a different way. And it's not so much WHAT you put in, but how you put it.

First off, I've been cheating and using a 1-liter diet pepsi bottle, you know, the one with the wide mouth.

I put the syrup and the milk in, and shake it a little, leaving some of the gooey choc sitting on the bottom.

Then I add the seltzer and I do not mix ... I tried mixing it for the first one and it was ok, but it is so much better when you don't mix it.

Gotta identify the bit of fat that is from the egg cream first!

Have to find another brand of syrup. Don't normally have much in the shop. Might need to go to a gourmet store.

from a little local and familial knowledge (i'm a brooklyn boy, originally), foxes u-bet chocolate syrup was the only flavor used in official egg creams until the company began selling other flavors in the late 50's to early 60's.

today, you can get vanilla, strawberry, raspberry, black cherry, malt, and of course, chocolate flavored syrups for your egg creams.

Yes, but the cheapest I've found for U-Bet's is $4 a bottle. That sucks!! LoL Hershey's I got for less that $2 a bottle :-) and Hershey's is a really good name brand. :-)
