An egg cream is an authentic New York drink and mad with only three basic ingredients: milk, seltzer, and chocolate syrup.
Sometimes called a chocolate soda, and despite its name, there are actually no eggs or cream in it.
The ingredients come together to make a sweet, creamy drink that is very similar to an ice cream milk shake. However, If left to sit for too long, the ingredients start to separate and this is why you never see egg cream soda bottled or packaged.
A very popular drink back in the day the first egg creams were made in New York in the early 1900s. You could find them on almost every block in Brooklyn candy stores or even soda fountains. Sadly, the egg cream fell out of popularity as soda fountains became less and less prevalent.
We’re hoping that now is a time that the egg cream soda made a comeback!
Making a chocolate egg cream is actually very easy and doesn’t require any fancy ingredients. Unlike a milkshake or malted, you don’t even need a machine to mix it together.
