Dusty Road Sundae

A friend in a little town in Pennsylvania told me she had a Dusty Road Sundae for dinner.I'd never heard of it. 
 
Is this a Pennsylvania thing?
 
Sounds like something I could have invented.

    That's how she described it.  Yep, right up my alley!

    I'm from  PA and I've driven on dusty roads on a Sunday but I've never heard of a Dusty Road Sundae!

    Ah. I came up with those independently years ago; I had a large jar of European plain Ovaltine, and thought, "Hey, that stuff would taste good on ice cream!" I was right.

    I don't think it is a Pennsylvania thing.  The only time I have had one was in an ice cream parlor in Madison, Indiana.

    Hmmmmmm I had one there too, have you had the '37 Flood?
     
    I think it is a midwestern term, not specifically PA

    They're definitely my favorite sundae. If you ever go to Pennsylvania and go to Shenandoah go to the tastee freeze they make them there. Oh, they're so yummy!

    Dusty Roads were quite common- and still are in the areas of south central Pa that I grew up in and live in now.
    I am actually surprised people have never heard of them
    Not my favorite- I never have particularly liked  malt (except in beer). Don't order malted milks either.

    That's interesting that I have had several Dusty Roads sundaes, but never in Pennsylvania.  The first time was at Mundt's Candies in Madison, IN, which is now closed.  I will start keeping my eye out for them.

    At Maynard's Snack Bar in Moretown, VT, something similar is called a Dusty Miller: It's a vanilla Creemee with malt powder and hot fudge sauce.

    Michael Stern-
    No doubt anything with malt powder and hot fudge sauce would be delicious. 
     
    But, I am still a little fuzzy on what exactly constitutes a Creemee.  I was under the impression it was simply a maple flavored soft serve cone, but maybe there is more to it.

    My grandparents gave me Horlick's Malted Milk tablets as a treat when I visited them in the market.  Still love the taste of Malted Milk.
     
    Horlicks stopped making them in the US and began making the in England.  I bought a bunch and they are not the same!

    I've had them with Spanish peanuts and hot chocolate on top of the malted milk powder.... pretty good stuff.

    My understanding is that a creemee can be any flavor.

    Wikipedia just lists creemee as a colloquialism for soft serve that comes form the Northeast, originating in Vermont. No specific flavours attached to it.

    I remember a soda fountain located in a pharmacy in my home town came up with a new fountain drink called the dusty. This was back in the early 60's. This is a article I saw that mentions the Dusty Miller that is also known as a Dusty Road. It says it's a Sundae with a dusting of Malt power.

    Each time I see this thread, I think it's an ice cream treat dedicated to this guy.
