a egg cream that I grow up with - as I'm sure many of you "Michiganders" did too.... —Jen S

What You'll Need
  • 1/4 cup Chocolate Syrup, Hershey's
  • 1/3 cup glass Ice Cold White Milk
  • 1 can of Vernors
  • 1 Big Tall Glass
  1. Pour in the chocolate syrup, then add the milk, stir up well. Slowly add the Vernors. It will start foaming, but that's half the fun. Let it calm down a little, and add more Vernors. Mix slowly and drink. After you have one your hooked. Its the best egg cream around. New York can have their Egg Creams with their seltzer water! For in Detroit we make it with "Vernors".

I'm old enough to remember going to the Vernor's factory on Woodward in the 50's and 60's and being able to get a Cream Ale (10 cents) or a Chocolate Cream Ale (12 cents) from the counter service in a large tall glass (12--16 oz). The counter had about 12-15 stations as I recall.
