Moms always say that TV will rot your brain… unless you’re me and you base your entire college degree on one TV show. One TV show that taught me that the Butter Cow at the Ohio State Fair is dose exist! That Yoyo Ma does in fact, rule.  And that if you’re from New York, you know that they are the sum total of summer experiences.

Yup, it’s the West Wing. I don’t know where the hang my head in shame or wear that as a badge of honor.

But it’s true, I started college as a Biotech Pre-Vet major, and as I stumbled and got knocked around by Calculus, I decided that it just wasn’t in the cards for me. If my present-Megan could go back and round house kick past-Megan in the face she would. It is my single biggest regret in life, but it wasn’t to be. So instead, I harnessed all those years of ASB in middle and high school, years of studious West Wing watching and a love of all things BS, to get a degree in Political Science.

Thank you Allison Janney, Martin Sheen, and Bradley Whitford.

In one episode in particular, Toby the lovable gruff from New York, walks into the Oval Office to see a Jed Bartlett sipping on an Egg Creme to which proclaims is the most amazing thing. Natrually, being from New Hampshire he thinks just a creation could only be made in New England – and then Toby kicks that proverbial puppy and says there are good things not from New England… Well, that’s just something you don’t tell the President! TOBY!

Which obviously meant I had to try one for myself and find out which fictional President or Communications Director was really right. It was a throwdown! Except I didn’t have chocolate syrup on hand… but I did have Nutella!

I am totally on team Egg Creme after this experience!! And you should be, too.

And if you’re wondering, “What did Megan do with that Political Science degree?”… I went into construction and project management. Yes, there is a limit to the BS I can handle in my life.

    Never heard of an Egg Creme before (and I’m from NH!). Maybe we call it something different. Either way, it looks delicious!

    There is one problem with this recipe. The yield says two and I need it to say 3. One for you, your hubby and your guest which is ME.

    Your college days are similar to mine! Calculus, malculus…blah! I started with Pharmacy and ended up somewhere in between Management and Political Science! West Wing 4EVA!

    I am DYING for this! Egg creams are probably one of my most favorite drinks, they always make me think of my mom and childhood. There was this amazing 50s era diner by our house with the huge neon signs and a juke box. And LOTS of egg creams. But never with Nutella. Woah.

    Wait. There’s not actually an egg in an egg creme? I literally always thought there was. This looks so rich and refreshing at the same time, and yey for Nutella!

    I didn’t have a clue what the heck you were talking about. It must an east coast thing??? So that makes it extra fun to learn about. Not only that it kind of reminds me of an Italian soda. I had to pin it. Looking forward to trying it too.

    Wow!  When I saw this pic, I was absolutely certain that it had a ton of ingredients, so clearly I’m not from New York! (lol)  I love recipes that are yummy and super simple to make, so this is being added to my list.  Happy New Year!  Big Hugs…RO

    So here I am, 2 years later {Google never forgets}, finding this after joking around with a friend about it.

    I’m originally from NYC so egg creams and I are old friends. There’s a very specific way of making them using very specific ingredients:

    Whole milk {this isn’t supposed to be healthy}
    Fox’s UBet Chocolate syrup
    Seltzer {not club soda}

    The ratio is 2 parts seltzer to 1 part milk. Milk goes in the glass first, then seltzer. This creates the foamy head. Syrup goes in last to make the drink chocolate colored but leave the head white. There’s no set amount of syrup to use except to say you probably didn’t put in enough the first time.

    Not sure how Nutella affects the drink but I see you have the milk/seltzer ratio reversed from the original.

    This requires research. May take me a couple of years 🙂
