One of my favorite childhood travel memories was visiting the soda fountain at
Mom fondly recalled after school treats at the marble soda counter of the Auburn Drug Company. At a quarter, the Irish sodas were too expensive unless it was a special occasion so my mom would order a lime phosphate for a dime instead.
The prices are higher, but the marble soda counter remains, and the frozen treats are as delicious as Mom remembers them. The kids loved the soda fountain experience so much we wil be returning this afternoon!
If you stop by Auburn Drugs on a Gold Country road trip, be sure to try the Irish Soda. The secret recipe has been passed on by generations of pharmacists. I’m looking forward to mine.
