"real deal" for malted milk shakes
Having an uncle who was a respected chef in a number of Manhattan's best restaurants through the mid-1950's to late '60's, many did not know that he also "doubled up" as a great short order cook in diners at various times. As a pre-teen and adolescent, I was his "chief cook and bottle washer" while learning the restaurant trade from the ground up, and in the diners and luncheonettes, served as a fry cook and soda jerk. As the original meaning of the term suggests, I handled the fountain drinks which in time, became one of my fondest memories. Of course, the fast food industry has made it impossible to get a true malted milk or egg cream in the New York Metro area and what passes for "original" and "authentic" really isn't. Prairie Moon has made it possible through their Soda Fountain Malted Milk Powder, to prepare and enjoy what in our house constitutes the "real deal" for malted milk shakes. No special treat, the entire family thrives and enjoys this truly wonderful product on a daily basis. I have given quite a few canisters as gifts so that friends can enjoy it also. This was one of my recent "finds" that tops the list.
