AMAC Magazine Exclusive - By Alexa Astuto

Your whitewall tires cruise down Main Street and park along a curb blanketed under a starry night. You enter a place where all ages gather, bellies fill with sugar, and a jukebox plays.

The final product is slid your way, and you eagerly pull the red and white striped straw to your lips and indulge in the sweet sensation coating your taste buds.

Where can I still get a chocolate malt? Seems like there are only shakes now but I remember how tasty the malt was.
