Right on Denby - Acording to Wikipedia: Frappe. Typically in the New England states and some other eastern states prior to the the mid-1960's, restaurants and other food service providers gave you a choice of a "milkshake" or a "frappe". The "milkshake" was just that, milk whipped with a flavoring syrup such as chocolate, strawberry, coffee, or vanilla. The "frappe" had the same base, but was thickened with scoops of ice cream
In the early 60's when I would ask for a frappe in Connecticut they had no idea what I was asking for.
Being from eastern Mass and very young I was just as confused.
