I like Vanilla ice cream, a tad of milk, vanilla extract, Hersheys syrup, and the Carnation Plain Malt powder. I like my shake lumpy, and ice cold. I have tried the Horlicks Malt Powder, but found it too sweet. It can be purchased at Indian Grocery stores. Carnation is now putting Malt powder into Plastic containers. I put mine in a glass jar. I love the old Hamilton Beech blenders from the Dime stores. What a rush ! The best clerks always left the silver beaker by your glass...with a smile. I won't even consider a malt unless it is made with real ice cream. I will never understand the "need" to use artificial fillers. It freaks me out.

I don't mind one scoop of ice cream in a milk shake or malt (actually, that was called a freeze when the ice cream was mixed in the shake, and it was a float when the scoop was added after the shake was mixed), but I cannot stand those things they call milk shakes that are filled with ice cream and are so thick you use a spoon.

When I was growing up in the 50's malts were served everywhere. Now it's hard to find a place that serves them. They seemed to disappear after the appearance of McDonald's (at least in my home town) and the milkshake took over.

Three scoops of Mocha Fudge Ripple and some whole milk, then add a teaspoon of Carnation chocolate flavored malt-mix and a squirt of hot fudge sauce.
The result will be thick, but with a 'fat' milk-shake straw you can 'suck-it-up. The malt gently adds to the mild coffee flavor of the ice cream. And there is most of a second serving in the steel Blender cup waiiting for you!

An off shoot of this recipe would be to use some good Vanila or more Mocha Fudge ice cream and dump a couple of shots of Kahlua into the blender and skip the Malt. Blend while adding a bit of milk to thin to your needed consistency.

When I was in high school, in the sixties , my grandparents owned a restaurant in Jersey and I was in charge of the ice cream department. That was the perfect job and I have made many malts and shakes. If you think the malt is a lost art what about the ice cream soda. I do not see them on any menus and the few times that I have they did not resemble the real thing. The properly made ice cream is my favorite ice cream treat. Down here in Tn. it is not to be found. Where do I go to get the perfect ice cream soda?

Just a bit OT---but---tried a Black Russian Shake--its FINE!---in a blender can(thats the metal thing)-large scoop of vanilla icream---large scoop coffee ice cream--3oz vodka--1 1/2 oz Kahlua--a bit of half and half if needed to thin. Thanks for the inspiration Al!!!

There's a place in Philly called Nifty Fifty's and they have hundreds (literally) of shakes, malts, and ice cream sodas flavors made the old-fashioned way.

The Hayloft Ice Cream Polar in Decatur, Michigan makes awesome milk shakes and malted milks, these are the best I ever had! Take I-94 Exit #56 for about 8 miles, The Hayloft is located on M-51, just south of the Decatur Village limits

I thought that a float was soda and ice cream..i.e. root beer and vanilla or coke and vanilla ice cream.. I was prowling at Big Lots this week and found some Hershey's butterscotch topping for 25 cents. I made a shake with Mayfield pralines and cream ice cream, a moderate amount of milk, a splash of vanilla flavoring and some of the butterscotch topping. Rather tasty for sure.

what you described as a float, is what I always thought was a float, In fact, during the earlier 1960's, the 7-up comapny had a ad campaign each summer, for 7-up floats, all they were, was 7-up and ice cream!

A soda with ice cream was called, are you ready -- an ice cream soda. Now, there were root beer floats, but one of those was not to be confused with an ice cream soda.

Don't ask my why. I have no idea. I was not then, and I am not now, a nomenclature official.

I thought a float was Ice Cream and Soda Pop. I thought a Ice Cream Soda, was Ice Cream, Plain Soda and then a flavoring, like cherry syrup, Cherry Syrup, etc., and etc.

I love malteds and don't care much for shakes. But most places don't seem to use enough malt powder. Then again, I'm a woman who wishes they would find a way to make malted milk balls without the chocolate covering.

Not that I don't love chocolate, but the chocolate they tend to use isn't very good!

I completely agree, malteds need more malt powder and I wish I could find malted milk balls with good chocolate! Anyone know of any?

Horelick's Malted Milk Tablets!

They are the perfect answer to Malted Milk Balls without the chocolate.

They are very hard to find now. I used to buy them in a pharmacy in small glass bottles.

Never understood why they were in a pharmacy as they were candy to me.

As kids when malteds were served at more of the restaurants here they were called malts, but my mother always called them malteds.

You can get Horlick's by mail at:

They don't come in bottles anymore.

Horlick's Malted Milk Tablets are still available online at the Vermont Country Store (vermontcountrystore.com, I think?). They have them in chocolate. You can get a package of 4 boxes, each box has 3 packets, and each packet has 8 or 9 tablets. They still taste great.

And on the subject of floats and sodas, I've heard them called both, and they involve (in Michigan, anyway) pop (root beer, coke, vernors, etc.) and a scoop of ice cream plopped in. I can still remember going to the Vernor's factory in Detroit on a tour, and we got all the floats we wanted... took me years to want one again!

And last but not least, malted milk shakes... are available all the time at Big Boy restaurants, where they make them thick or thin (to your preference), in usually chocolate, strawberry, and vanilla, and they serve it with the metal cup beside... oh, heaven.

Better late than never, but I got here by searching for malted milk tablets, so I imagine someone else will. Hope this helps!

In the mid-50's, there was a place downtown Newport News that had something resembling a "Frosty" but 100 times better. It was called a malted and came in a waxed dixie cup with a flat wooden spoon. Many is the time I begged some change from my mother so I could go get one of those things. I've yet to see anything to compare to that malted taste! It wasn't a milkshake...came out of a machine ready mixed. My mouth is watering.......Barney

Thanks! Do you know what they are named, I'm a long way from NYC (although I lived there in the 1970's)?

Anyone ever try an authentic Brooklyn Egg Cream?
Very refreshing, here is a link from Fox's U-Bet chocolate syrup:

sorry, plb - no brand name on the package other than Fairway...they have a website, but don't do mail order other than gift baskets (which don't seem to include those terrific malted milk balls...)
i won't be on Long Island for another month, but if you email me your snailmail address i will pick some up and send them to you, provided you can wait that long!

Malted milk ice cream bars!

I remember going to events at the Kitchener Memorial Auditorium in the 60's and 70's. Teen age boys sold ice cream bars in the stands. You had a choice of vanilla or malted. The malted ice cream bars were the best, ever! I can't find them anywhere now.
