    Mirj's Note:

    I grew up drinking this in the Bronx. Once you could get it at almost any corner soda fountain, now it's considered a relic.

      As a former New Yorker, this is a drink I remember from my childhood. I have tried to make this for years - even using similar ingredients and just couldn't get the proportions right. The ingredients and the measurements in this recipe produce the exact taste I remember from my favorite soda fountain treat. Thanks for restoring a childhood memory! This is delicious and very easy to make. If you cannot find U-Bet, then you could substitute Hershey's chocolate syrup- the kind that comes in a can, not a squeeze bottle (the squeeze bottle stuff is too thin).

      What a delicious drink! I treated myself to this delight in honour of New York City and the tragedy of 9-11; I raised a cheer to NYC and the U.S. by creating this quintessential American beverage. I used lowfat milk, UBet (which I bought a while back while in Buffalo NY), and club soda. It couldn't be easier to make and will now be a regular "snack" for me!

      I was born in the bronx and I love egg cream. Not many people outside of N.Y. know what it is. It doesn't have an egg in it so I wonder where it got the name,anyone know? If you've never tasted an egg cream you really should try this. Thanks for your recipe. It brings back memories.
