Date: Thu, 3 Aug 1995 09:50:37 EDT From: Larry Horn Subject: Canker sores and egg creams which I do not intend to imply any causal relation between the two. On the first, I also grew up in NYC (late 1940's and early-mid 50's for the formative years) but unlike Vicki I can vouch for the term "canker sore" being applied to those cold sores one gets inside one's cheek and in adjacent areas. On egg creams, I have nothing to add to Vicki's recipe and variations. I do recall the chocolate variety being such a strong default that no other flavors were considered real egg creams, although the vanilla and coffee versions were extant. Oh, this was Washington Heights, if that's relevant. Larry
