New York Egg Cream

The title of this recipe (from How Easy is That) reminds me of a topic from “Coffee Talk,” a Saturday Night Live sketch from the late 1980s/early 1990s.  In every sketch, Barbara Richman, the host (played by Mike Myers) gets “verklempt” (usually while discussing her idol, Barbra Streisand) and needs to give the audience a topic to “discuss amongst themselves” while she calms down.  Once, she said, “I’ll give you a topic.  Chickpeas are neither chicks nor peas.”  Likewise, this recipe has neither egg nor cream, nor was it made in New York.

If you have trouble finding U-Bet chocolate syrup, check the kosher section of your grocery store.

This was basically fizzy chocolate milk.  “No big whoop,” as the Coffee Talk ladies would say.  But I can see if you grew up with something like this, you might get nostalgic for it.  “Like buttah.”

Completed/Remaining:  361/237
