Where to get Eggnog

Farm Boy has their house brand in the glass bottles. I picked some up at the McRae store.

Anyone happen to see chicken milk on shelves anywhere yet?

Reid Dairy's egg nog is very good. I wish we had easier access to their products in Ottawa, but if Cochrane's are going to resell it then that's good too.

Cochrane's Dairy says:
"Reid's Dairy have agreed to do a special batch of egg nog for us. It will be called Gourmet Egg Nog. It will be made with cream. Look forward to trying it!"

Bought a litre of Harmony Organics eggnog - truly the best I have ever tasted. I grew up on the PC eggnog (when it came in the black carton) and always loved it, so that's my frame of reference. This one is creamy, not overly sweet, and has an incredibly delicate flavour. Even though I'm the only one drinking it, I'm glad I got the big bottle :)

Cochrane's eggnog is awesome. It's like christmas in my mouth, but without all those nasty pine needles this time.

I don't do dairy so I picked up the Vitasoy Holly Nog. It's delicious and I made an awesome smoothie with it:

-1/2 cup Holly Nog
-1/2 cup rice milk
-1 frozen banana
-ground nutmeg
-ground cinnamon
-I scoop vanilla protein powder (brown rice)

It was really tasty and great for breakfast :)

Have picked up Harmony Organic's eggnog at Herb and Spice. In glass jar.

Also, picked up Organic Meadow's eggnog in carton at Farm Boy.

Both were lovely. Darling husband is the true expert in our house and he gave the nod to Harmony Organic.

I only see eggnog at this time of the year.

I get that many won't like the organic price tag of Harmony Organic eggnog; however, our premise is that life is too short to be drinking the cheap chemical stuff. We have it once a year and consider it a Christmas present to ourselves.

Love to hear what others are drinking.

Best decision that I made this weekend was to put eggnog on my shredded wheat. We ran out of milk.

I love eggnog and have been adding bourbon and nutmeg to the PC version, but come Christmas, here's a link to the recipe that my family always looks forward to: www.marthastewart.com
It's got lots of booze - no wonder it's so popular.

And for a real treat at this time of year, we put grocery store eggnog on steel cut oatmeal instead of cream.

I don't like eggnog... except this one. I don't know if its the nog-to-egg ratio but man is it good.

I didn't know about the bottle deposit... to bad, I could have saved up the bottles and brought them back to exchange for another eggnog.

Personally, its by far and away the best eggnog I've ever had. I've never made homemade eggnog nor have I had ever had homemade eggnog so I can't say how it compares to others.

I would like to add a comment in light of zymurgist's comments on the deposit.

With regards to the deposit. I have bought the eggnog lots over the years and what I was always told, by Aubrey's owner (Brian if I remember correctly) was that Cochrane dairy had a deposit on the bottles to ensure they got them back as they have ran into shortages in the past. They now use plastic bottles but up until Christmas 2006 (I think it was then), they used old fashioned glass milk bottles. At that time, I believe the deposit was $3 per bottle.

I am a semi-regular at Aubreys - meaning I buy almost all of my good quality meat there (say 15-20 visits per year), and it would strike me as odd for them to do what zymurgist recounted. I am not doubting at all that someone said that, I am just curious if it was one of their core employees or a new or temporary one. It would be very out of character for them in my experience. .

Cheers

I bought some of this when I was down buying my thanksgiving turkey this year. Yup, it's really good, but I cannot say it was significantly better than anything else I've ever had. Then again maybe I'm just not an eggnog feinschmecker. One thing I really didn't like was there is a $1 deposit on the container. The guy told me straight up that it's just a ploy to get me back into the store to return it. Pretty crappy if you ask me. And it didn't get me back, it just got me upset about the whole thing.
