Mt. Carmel Candy Store,"Belmont", The Little Italy of the Bronx.

This tiny candy store is no longer in business but opened in the 1950s and that is when its ‪#‎privilegesign‬ by Coca-Cola was installed. When we took this ‪#‎analog‬ photo in 2004 the owner, Charlie told us that he still served old-fashioned egg creams and malteds and used a ‪#‎vintage‬ Hamilton Beach ‪#‎mixer‬. The ‪#‎eggcream‬ is a quintessential New York ‪#‎candy‬ store fountain drink. Although its name implies that it is made using#eggs and cream, it has neither. It consists of only milk, seltzer and flavored syrup. Charlie made both ‪#‎vanilla‬ and ‪#‎chocolate‬ syrup flavored egg creams using Fox's U-Bet syrup. We loved this small ‪#‎storefront‬ and the little window advertisements.
