So let me preface this post by saying that a regular Chocolate Egg Cream Soda does not contain neither egg nor cream. Why it is called egg cream, there are various reasons, however if this soda fountain drink is done correct, it tastes creamy and fizzy. This vegan version is just as divine and refreshing as it’s original counterpart.
Er, I mean, it’s spooky, gross, and looks like it came from a swamp, ergo the name Halloween Swamp Water.Print

It’s like a chocolate milk drink taken to the next degree, full of fizzy carbonation. Oh carbonation I heart you. I don’t drink soda of any kind anymore but I do love beer. Look at me, talking about beer when it’s not even called for. This comes as no surprise though. Where am I?
What I love about this is how decadent and creamy this vegan Chocolate Egg Cream Soda tastes like but looks like but at the same time looks like utter swamp water–the perfect Halloween party beverage!
Give it a whirl…and if you do, I’d love to see it on Instagram…

The rat, skull and crossbones bottle, and test tubes are such special touches! Yummy on that Swamp Water, too. 🙂
How on earth did I miss this earlier. Chocolate, creamy, soda. How could that not be a winner? YUM. Can’t wait to try it.

Eek! And yum! I think this would be a perfect drink to hit those late-night chocolate cravings!!!!!

Thea @ Baking Magique
That looks so scary!! Does it taste good..?
It really does taste good Thea! It’s like a fizzy chocolate mylk 🙂
This looks so fun and creative, thanks! Ready for Halloween now!
My job is complete then 🙂 Love it!
I just read a Serious Eats article about egg creams not that long ago. I had never heard of them before. I’m also a supporter making everything in a chocolate version if possible, even if it does look like swamp water.
Ha, perfect timing then huh? Plus, you support in choco-fying everything is something I can absolutely stand behind.
I have never heard of or tasted egg cream, but this looks delish!
I used to live by this 50s diner and remember trying my first one. That and a chocolate soda. Delicious! Give it a try at least once–it’s worth it 🙂
Yummy! And what’s your favorite booze to add to this? Kahlua maybe???
Oooooohhhh booze. Kahlua would be a fabulous addition, what a great idea!
my mom makes these with club soda, a splash of milk, and chocolate syrup. i never thought about how to veganize it. it looks so yummy!
Your mom is a good woman 🙂
Cool, it’s even got a live layer of scum on top. I’ve known some pond scum in my life but never thought of setting rats on them. Hmm… and who but you would even have a rat handy? I guess I’ll just have to down a couple of these and plan and scheme and be evil and stuff. mwahaha
Not sure if that life-sized pond scum could fit on top of that glass though… ?
I use to go to a Real soda shop in Mexacali the cali. side and I would always get a drink called “a suicide” it is all the soda syrups mixed together to make a horrifically sweet drink and yes they served egg creams,too. Have a great weekend.
Hahaha, suicides–yes! We used to do that at fast food restaurants at the soda fountain. Correction. My FRIENDS would do that. I however was more refined with my Coca Cola choice 🙂 ha
