Chocolate/Vanilla Egg Creams
« on: February 07, 2010, 02:03:54 PM »
OK  I'm dating myself here. Who made the best chocolate or Vanilla egg creams?  My vote is a tie between Mom's  (no longer there) was on the North Side of 37th Ave between 80th and 81st or Moe and Archies ( across 37th from PS-69)

One could say there were no "bad" egg creams back then, but I had a fondness for Natalie's on 37th and 85th and the candy store on 37th between 83rd and 84th.

I also remember some great Lime Rickey's at a small candy store on the south side of 37th right off 80th?

That same place (80th and 37th) also had a cooler which contained   bottles of Mission Cream soda. What could be better after a game of stickball?

Yes they did!!  (Wow Mission Soda!)  They  also had frozen candy bars.  The candy store on Northern and 80th - diagonally across from 145 also carried Mission.

In 1943 it was called Dreyfuss' candy store. Same location though, and they still had the egg creams AND the Mission Soda.
