Do you remember real sodas from a soda fountain? I remember after school, on the walk home stopping in at Snow White Pharmacy and having a chocolate soda. They were wonderful. If I had baby sitting money in my pocket, I would treat myself to one. Many years have passed between my last soda at Snow White and the next time I had one. I was in the
at Lagomarcino’s Ice Cream Parlor
and saw they had them on their menu. The
owner told me while I was raving about the soda, that he had purchased
the Snow White’s old fountain pictured behind them above. Davenport
I learned a couple of years ago how to make them on the Food Channel. I’ll share it with you:
Put some chocolate syrup in the bottom of a glass. Add equal parts of milk and ginger ale ½ way up the glass. Drop a scope of vanilla ice cream into the glass and it will fizz up like root beer float. Serve with a spoon and straw. Treat your kids to one. Make it a sweet memory for them.
Be happy and may God bless you and yours.
