GUEST,Brian BS: Soda fountains, ice cream and pharmacies (96* d) RE: BS: Soda fountains, ice cream and pharmacies 04 May 07


I guess lots of classic soda places left still, remnants.
One in Ithaca NY, one near East Aurora NY, one in Corning NY (gee, you'd think I never get out of NY but its all on the way to things I go to from Toronto ON)

And speaking of milk shakes - anyone from New Zealand care to comment on the weird variety of their milk shakes!?

Last year traveling in NZ I found they ran the gamut from ice cream (proud home made ice cream at that)based with milk over to NO ice cream (never thought of or encountered in some places) - the shakes being made from milk and a variety of flavoured powders/crystals.
I never had the temerity to try the powder based ones (just to fake disgusting) but what amazed me was the reaction from those who only made those - the IDEA of putting ice cream in a milk shake! Perish... what ARE you thinking... milk shakes are made from powder.
(I think if I'd stuck around they'd have then proceeded to label me a Pommie or something like that...which is what happened one place where I asked for vinegar for my french fries (aka chips).

Oh well. That's travel. Here in Canada a soft drink is pop.. in USA it is a soda (unless of course its something else...)
