Out of the Blue

Years ago I mentioned a quest for the legendary Kosher for Passover Coca-Cola, which is apparently made with sugar, rather than high-fructose corn syrup. I never succeeded at this, though I did eventually locate the sugar-based Mexican Coke. In what was a completely unrelated thought, last weekend I had the impulse to pick up some Fox's U-Bet syrup to be properly equipped to make egg creams. I picked up a bottle of the chocolate and strawberry syrups, and each noted that the corn syrup ingredient is swapped out in favor of sugar during Passover, and vaguely recalling that we are getting into Easter/Passover season I checked, and sure enough, this is the sugar variety, which was pretty cool. By the way, for the record, I don't think HFC is worse for you than sugar (they are each treats, neither is health food), I just find things sweetened with sugar to taste better.

is it... is it good? what does such a thing even taste like?!? such odd customs you have, you east coast foreigners.

It's sparkling water, chocolate syrup (I used Hershey's. Heretic, I know) and milk. (Supposed to be whole, I like half and half. Again, I am a heretic.) Mix a cup of milk with chocolate syrup to taste, add a cup of sparkling water. (Seltzer, whatever)

It tastes...well, good. Some people say it's like bubbly chocolate milk, but it's really not. The carbonation gives it a big head of foam and the tastes really meld into something else.

The important thing is that I loved it as a kid, and now my daughter has gotten to try it, and she likes it too. So thanks, Blue, for reminding me about egg creams.
