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.
