All but the lobstah one. And I’m still not quite clear on the frappe’ business…
But at UConn, we lived on fluffernutters.
Milkshakes are usually made with ice cream and syrup mixed with milk. In New England , they are called frappes and milkshakes are made with just milk and syrup.. I’m a New Englander if you couldn’t tell.
I hit every one of these. Now I live in the midwest and no one believes me when I tell them some of these. NOW I HAVE PROOF! lol
I agree. My husband both live in the Midwest. He is from WV and I from NH. I Ned to order marshmallow fluff because he thinks fluff is the same as jarred marshmallow ‘ All these are true especially the frappe.
A frappe and a milkshake are the same thing except in New England where a milkshake is shaken milk with no ice cream. It is not frappé though. There is no accent.
And I would nevah eat the green stuff. Gross.
A frappe’ does have ice cream. A milk shake does not. Taken it from a former ice cream parlour owner!!! And a true New Englander!!!! You also forget to put the tonic in there. Soda or pop anywhere else but tonic in New England.
All of these except the seal! Yes, I’ve even eaten the green stuff ONCE! Lived in Florida most of my life and many of my friends thought Fluffernutters were a southern thing! I didn’t care where they otiginated! Loved them then and Love them still!
A milk shake has no ice cream. A frappe has ice cream. In Australia, where I live now, a frappe is called a thick shake. And they have no iced coffee or iced tea (the real kind).
Milkshake, Frappe? In Western Mass., we called ’em “Frosts”. And our submarine sandwiches were called “Grinders”.
Oh yes I forgot about the grinders.
Tomalley is the caviar of the Lobster.
Brown eggs are local eggs and local eggs are fresh!!!
Saturday is beans & hotdog day!
…and Wednesday is Prince spagetti Day !
Yes with the brown bread in the can
The frappes I grew up with were thick and creamy and smooth. You could drink them through a straw. I think I remember them being made with light cream…at the fountain of a neighborhod phrarmacy…late 1950’s..I want to make on right now
