Nostalgic chocolate sodas are an all-time favorite in this house. For an extra special treat, they them with homemade chocolate syrup.
There isn’t much to say today. Just this: I need chocolate. It’s just been that type of week and I need a soda and some chocolate. And some mac and cheese. One of my favorite chocolate treats is the nostalgic chocolate soda. They take me to happy times and always make me thing good things.
The first time I tried a chocolate soda, I was with my mom. I was in fourth grade and had a broken arm. We were waiting for some x-rays to come in and so she took me to lunch at a place called Nifty Fifties. They’ve had some problems recently and I’m not sure if the place is even around anymore. Nifty Fifties is exactly what it sounds like. A quaint little diner with a 50s theme and amazing food. Cheese fries, nuggets, hot dogs and every flavor soda you could imagine. The chocolate soda is a perennial favorite of mine and I can’t ever resist it when it is on the menu.
It’s a piece of cake to whip these babies up at home, too. Just a few ingredients and five minutes of time and you are set. Chocolate to fulfill all of your chocolate needs.
- 6 Tbsp. chocolate syrup
- 12 ounces plain seltzer water
- Fill two glasses with ice. Divide the syrup evenly into the glasses. Top with seltzer water and stir to combine.
