Fabulous old-fashioned malted milk (2008)

Egger's

Open for 70 years, Egger's is the big island's most respected purveyor of custom-made chocolates and homemade ice cream. This sit-down ice cream parlor also features a soda fountain with twirling stools, which is the best place to enjoy such arcane and rapidly disappearing delights as egg creams; root beer floats; mixed-to-order sodas in flavors like black cherry, chocolate, cherry Coke, and vanilla; and, especially, their thick milk shakes. These milk shakes can be turned into spectacular malts with the addition of malt powder, which is exceedingly rare these days—places that still make them usually do it with rancid-tasting syrup.
