one of my favorites growing up on the lower east side of nyc, they used to cost a nickle!


  1. pour syrup into a tall glass.
  2. add milk and stir.
  3. while stirring add seltzer.
  4. if it bubbles out of the cup you made it right- enjoy!

This was wonderful! I have never had a vanilla egg cream before, but I have to say, this was heavenly! I can easily see how this little concoction could become addicting : )

Haven't tried this yet. I grew up in the Bronx. My favorite flavor egg cream was and still is the chocolate. Just substitute chocolate syrup for the vanilla.

My favorites growing up on the lower east side too. Still drink it till this day. Tom's Restaurant on 112st and Broadway make a great egg cream.
