As part of a set of food-related songs on WMBR this afternoon while we finishing up the big meal (went off without a hitch, incidentally), the DJ played Jonathan Richman's "Double Chocolate Malted," which I haven't heard in ages. Made both me and my wife crave one!

Johnathon Richmans Double Chocolate Malted should be manditory listening for anyone making a milkshake/malted!! (Favorite line, Customer Service, very important!!) Thanks, gotta dig that one out of my tapes!!


I myself prefer a Malted, but shakes are ok too!! I am actually a shake master, and I love to mix interesting flavors together. Once I made a Sweetart shake for a friend, using phosphate, tangy sweet creamy good ness!!

A fave MALT I came up with is Pineapple Cherry Malt, it's like drinking a cold class of Pineapple Upside Down Cake, Delish!!

Another good one, and it is more a meal than a shake is a Peanut Butter Banana Chocolate Malt. I made this one once for a friend also, and it is a staple now, just so good, and you actually feel like you've eaten something healthy!! (DUPED, but in a good way!)

Man am I glad I'm working at the Resteraunt tonight!! WATCH OUT BLENDER!!!!

I prefer a malt over a shake whenever available but I find it seldom available. Almost exclusively chocolate. Although the root beer malt sounds intriguing.

A variation on the egg cream in the Chicago area is the phosphate. These are getting rare these days with the demise of the soda fountain. Just mix chocolate (or any flavor) syrup with seltzer. When I was a kid, we would order these in delis. Easy to make at home and just as good.

I prefer them at Ronnies on Rt 20 in Auburn Mass. Ronnies is a true roadfood legend. The founder passed a few years ago, but his family still does a great job. Seasonal. No credit cards.

On Saturday, I had my first chocolate malt in years. It was from Moxley's Ice Cream. Man, was it good!
I will drink a shake if no malt is available.

One of the best places to have a shake is Cheeburger Cheeburger. It's a chain of you guessed it, cheeseburger joints, mostly in the Florida area. They have about 50 types of thick shakes. you name it, they'll make it!

When I was a kid all the local drive-ins had malts. When McDonald's came to town they all went to shakes. Pretty soon you couldn't find a malt. You also soon couldn't find a local drive-in either.

I see (around here) malts are making a comeback but they think they're so 'special' that they charge $4 for one.

As a kid growing up in Brooklyn,(in the 50s and 60's) we all had Malteds at our local ice cream parlor, or neighborhood candy store with a fountain. I didn't know what a shake was until I became an adult. The memories are so great, having the guy behind the fountain mix the chocolate ice cream, milk, syrup and malted powder for an incredible treat. If he was really nice, he would top it off with the extra still in the blender. And, as an additional surprise, if you got on his good side, he would throw in a pretzel rod!

Those were blissful days!

The shakes/malts are reason enough to visit Steak 'n' Shake. There is nothing like the sound of the cherry rattling around the to go cup when you have reached the bottom. As far as I know, this is unique to them.

Remember Bond's Ice Cream?


Remember the Bond's Ice Cream stores of Northern, N.J,? They made the best ice cream, milk shakes, hamburgers, sundaes(i.e. Pig's Dinner), sodas and of course the Awful Awful. You had to drink 3 at one sitting in order to get one free. There was a list of all the people who had been able to do that feat. How many were you able to drink at one sitting?

There will be a dedication ceremony for a plaque honoring the memory of Bond's Ice Cream on Sat. Oct. 6th at 4 P.M.. The ceremony will be at the old site of Bond's Ice Cream on Valley Road in Montclair, N.J.. Come and reminisce about the food, the good old days and old friends.

Hope to see you there!

I'm a malt man all the way. Grew up on the west side of Chicago in the late 40's and worked the soda fountain at my dad's drug store making real malts. Little did I know that one day I would be living in Racine, WI, home of the Horlick's Malted Milk Corporation. http://www.wisconsinhistory.org/museum/exhibits/horlicks/

I love them both and probably go 50/50. Depends on my mood. Coincidentally, I just made myself a black and white malt within the past hour. I guess that would be called a chocolate malt in much of the country. Had it right from the metal cup.

When I grew up in Indianapolis I didn't know there was such a thing as a milk shake. Malted was the only thing you could get even at the Dairy Queen. So malt it is. Culver's gives you a choice.

It's sad the number of times I've asked for a malt at various ice-cream establishments, and the staffer just looks at me funny, or -- better yet -- s/he'll ask the manager if they sell malts! Shakes are fine, but I prefer malts. I always loved Ovaltine as a kid, and as an adult I still crave that malty flavor.

Was a loyal customer of Bond's Ice Cream in Upper Montclair, NJ - 1960 - 1968. Liked the small paper cup of sherbert they served with their hamburgers at the counter.
Have apiece of nostalgia available :

I can't abide malt. I therefore never order malteds.
 
While I like chocolate milkshakes, I order fruit flavours such as cherry, pineapple or lemon-lime whenever possible.
 
Incidentally, I find milkshakes turn out best on my home model Hamilton Beach milkshake mixer when a bit of corn syrup is added. This thickens the mixture as well as sweetens it.

when I was a kid I always ordered malted shakes until my cousin opened a place and I tasted the malt by itself. I haven't ordered one since. now as far as flavors, if they have it I order blueberry. Other than that it's usually vanilla or occassionally pineapple.

I like both shakes and malts, but am partial to strawberry, or some of the fancier ones with candies or cookies or syrups in them.  I pulled in to a local Sonic recently and discovered that malts were no longer available.  I liked their chocolate cream pie shake with a bit of malt powder added.  A pineapple shake with a touch of butterscotch topping mixed in is also tasty.

The premise of this thread is peculiar.  There is a milk shake, and a malted milk shake.  They are both milk shakes.  The latter has a scoop of malt powder in it.  As in "malted barley" which is, of course, also the basis of beer, scotch whiskey and malta.

FYI: If you order a chocolate shake (or malt) in the East, you get chocolate syrup and chocolate ice cream.  In the Midwest, this is a "double chocolate" shake or malt.  In the Midwest, a chocolate shake (or malt) is chocolate syrup with vanilla ice cream.  In the East, that's called a "black and white."
 
MiamiDon: Thank you for finally pointing out the obvious: All malts are shakes, but not all shakes are malts. With or without malt, the cold sludge that comes out of machines at fast food places is NOT a shake (no matter what they call it).
 
We have malts today because some breweries stayed alive during prohibition by making and selling ice cream and they had a lot of barley malt to sell, too.  Beer drinkers who switched to ice cream drinks liked the malt taste (which reminded them of what they really wanted to be drinking).

Make a Vanilla Milk Shake as you would normally and add one entire McDonalds apple pie cut into 8 pieces. Cut length wise and then 4 cuts. Mix it for a few seconds at the end so as not to pulverize the pieces. Cherry pie works also or a Hostess pie...Russ

When my son was around 5 I decided he needed to learn that real Milkshakes and Malts didn't come out of a machine. Were made with real Vanilla Ice Cream and not flavorless "Shake Base". Made with real Milk and that Malt flavor came in powder form not liquid.

So I started things off by buying a two headed Hamilton Beach shake mixer complete with the metal mixing cups.

We both prefer drinking them in the metal cups... you lose a little perfection trying to transfer it to another cup.

So now I can go meet my maker knowing I've taken the time to teach my son what the important things in life really are.

Plus I have no fear of death since I'm pretty sure God knows what a real Milk Shake is too.

I've probably mentioned this before, but I have found that the metal cups are not only inexpensive, but make great containers for stick blenders; I always make my shakes using a stick blender in the metal cups (which, come to think of it, is pretty close to how it's made in an old fashioned soda shop).

My dad was a pharmacist and owned a drug store on the west side of Chicago(circa 1950). His pharmacy had a soda fountain, where as a kid, I made tons of ice cream creations on the weekends. My favorite was a chocolate malt accompanied by a packet of two Salerno butter cookies. We used Horlick's malt powder. I currently reside in Racine, WI, original home of Horlick's. http://www.wisconsinhisto...eum/exhibits/horlicks/

I made this almond malt with my trusty shake maker about an hour ago. It didn't take me long to down it:


 
 
I used to be able to find Horlick's easily and very cheap in Chinese grocery stores in Philadelphia's Chinatown. They seem to have stopped carrying it. I only see Ovaltine in those shops now, and I'm not an Ovaltine fan. It's become increasingly hard to find good malt in grocery stores around here too. So I bought NOW Foods malted milk powder from Amazon and have been very happy with it. For this malt, I also used about a half cup of whole milk, a little vanilla-flavored syrup, almond extract and a pint of hand-packed Bassett's French vanilla ice cream.

Real malts are getting less well known by young people....sad...nothing is better than a well made malt!!!
