LORELAI: Egg cream? Now, I never had an egg cream but it sounds just disgusting enough to be fabulous.
An egg cream is a cold soda fountain drink made from milk, carbonated water, and flavoured syrup (usually chocolate or vanilla). Despite the name, there are no eggs or cream in it. The egg cream originated at the end of the 19th century among Yiddish-speaking Jewish immigrants from Eastern Europe in New York City.
