I grew up in the Bronx in the 50's. We used to get egg creams all the time. One time while travelling through the south in the 50's, we stopped at a soda fountain and ordered egg creams. The waitress brought us a hard-boiled egg in a plate of sour cream. My family has been laughing at that for over 50 years.Yeah, I'm from Texas and I have a few of those stories about visiting the northeast (before we actually moved to <shudder> New Jersey for six years). My in-laws (outside Boston in the '70s) were going to the store and asked if I wanted anything in particular. A Dr Pepper was requested. They went all over town looking for one to no avail. I couldn't believe they were so backward they didn't have the best cold drink in the world! Over a winter holiday visit, I requested iced tea with lunch and was told they only serve that in the summer. And on a summer visit I requested hot chocolate with my breakfast and was told they only serve that in the winter. They served coffee, though. Chilihas told those stories for years
