@edgarblythe,
It definitely has to be sparkling - gotta have the fizz or you have no egg cream.

Some bars make fresh seltzer -it's come back as a bit of a trend . It really is the best. I've found some nice sparkling seltzer from the Adirondacs - which seems really appropriate since it's close to the Catskills. Obviously not fresh but bottled and wonderfully fizzy.

@ehBeth,
It was the packaging. There are other places nearby that often carry other brand names.

@Izzie,
Oreo cake...pah!

Why can't people just make a decent carrot cake??? With carrots in it.

Not like stupid egg creams, without egg and without cream, but with seltzer - whatever that is!?

They do. Often complete with cream cheese frosting and some walnuts interspersed.

If you're serious, then my sadness and sympathy for.you. Nobody should suffer through a life without egg creams or seltzer!

Seltzer is the misspelling of Selters, a German brand of natural mineral water sourced from wells in the area of Selters in Hesse.

The term "Selters" (seltzer water, l'eau de seltz, Aqua di Seltz) is generally used for any mineral water. (A German saying "Sekt oder Selters" means champagne or mineral water)

@Sturgis,
We call seltzer soda water, like civilised beings. Hence scotch and soda at the club.

It’s soda water, margo!

@dlowan,
In NYC it's also been called 2 cents plain when ordered at a soda fountain.

@firefly,
In Selters, people living in the town got Selters for free since 1722 - nowadays limited to 1 liter per person per day with a 24€ annual ticket.

Seltzer is not the misspelling of anything.

@Roberta,
Correct. I should have written "modification of the German Selters".
My bad.

You wanna carrot cake...

Wellllll Margo, never wanting you to be disappointed, as Sean was cooking all his cakes today, having worked his shift and worked on as they were so busy this Bank Holiday weekend, he had 4 more batch carrot cakes to make (humongous trays)... he did as he always does (cakes are his speciality and pride and joy) and for the first time in 18 months of doing this, he unfortunately flipped the pulse button (i.e. the super fast button) AFTER lifting the mixer... and lo and behold, he made you a carrot cake...





which covered him from head to toe...

Yep, no proof without photos, so straight from the washing machine, please kindly whip off the carrots 🥕 and gloop, and you have a carrot cake winging its way Down Under!

and an extra bit of carrot on the collar...

He wasn't a happy bunny 🥕

Now, 'aintcha glad you asked? Your wish is my washing!!!!

Meanwhile, Boida Goil, how're you doin'? Thinking of you and welling wishes being sent. Loving you xxxx

OK then. Selter = some sort of fizzy water. I'm still missing the point of the whole thing. And why call it egg cream> You Murricans iz weird!

Izzie - thank Sean for going above and beyond, and around and about and everywhere else. That wasn't really necessary but I do appreciate it! Smile

Next someone will start to ramble and rave about bagels - one of life's great disappointments!

@firefly,
I don't think that you can get ANYTHING any more in NYC for 2 Cents. I do remember seltzer being called that when I was a kid!I also remember seltzer being delivered to the home in reusable bottle.
