""EGG CREAM"" Egg cream This favorite New York City soda fountain drink has been popular since the 1930s. Egg creams don't contain a speck of egg but are so named because of the froth (resembling beaten egg whites) that crowns the drink. They're made with a mixture of milk and chocolate syurp into which seltzer water is spritzed, causing the mixture to foam enthusiastically.If you get a chance try it!! Something different.
