egg cream

/ehg kreem/
[English] plural egg creams

A concoction tasting remarkably like unfrozen vanilla ice cream with a slight fizz. Sweet and delicious. Not common in New York now, but requests for it were greeted with warm, nostalgic smiles wherever I went. I only tried a vanilla one, but according to Karen Resta, you have to eat a chocolate one before you can join the big boys!
