Sadly, that great part of Americana is all but lost, taking with it thick shakes and malts made with real ice cream, hot fudge sundaes, strawberry ice cream sodas, cherry colas and fizzy chocolate phosphates. They were magical places and could transform a bad day at school or a lonely evening just by climbing onto one of the high stools and twirling around as you watched your order created right in front of you, which was definitely part of the fun.
