Jason.. I’m a Brooklyn Jew and I can’t stand egg creams. Never liked them. My friends used to go for egg creams and a chocolate covered pretzel rod. Not me boy. A friend from the old neighborhood had a restaurant on the lower east side that had bin in the family for years, they clamed to make the best egg creams. I tried it and still thought it sucked. Milk and seltzer just don’t mix in my book.

I have not seen KP Pepsi or coke in cans in years.

Have a good pasach.

If it's an acquired taste, I've certainly acquired it.

Jason, I did not know of the significance of using KFP syrup. I'll look for it today.

The great thing about egg creams is that they can be made well wherever you are. I haven't truly had a great pizza like I had weekly in my NJ youth since moving to LA. The bagels also are a little funky out here.

But a good egg cream is universal.

Chag Sameach to all.
