Default vanilla phosphates

When I was a kid, I used to get a truly wonderful soda fountain drink
called a vanilla phosphate.

As far as I can tell, this beverage seems to have vanished from the face
of the Earth.

Does anyone know where they may still be had?

Phosphates are what we called 'em in the Midwest. New Yorkers know them
better as egg creams.

Actually, an egg cream is different from a phosphate.
A phosphate has only syrup and soda water. An egg cream
has has milk in it and is only made with chocolate syrup.
A phosphate can be made with any flavor syrup - vanilla
phosphate, cherry phosphate, strawberry phosphate, or
or chocolate phosphate. Those were the flavors available
at the sode fountain I used to frequent when I was young.
You could make any flavor you wanted if you had the syrup.
Pineapple would be yummy!

My experience in New York is that egg creams come in
either chocolate or vanilla. In either case, the only
acceptable syrup brand is "Fox's U-Bet". (And it's
half-and-half, not milk. And seltzer.)
