8 Soda Fountain Treats

Don't get us wrong: we've got no complaints about ice cream on its own. But why not turn your kitchen into a 1950s-style soda fountain, just because? With just one extra step or two, you've got a dish fit for a special occasion -- or for a lazy afternoon. Poodle skirt and horn-rimmed glasses are optional, but recommended.
