Egg Nog: Regular & Light
December 31, 2012 - Fearlessly Archived - Still a fun read, price & availability may have changed.
Though recipes for drinks bearing some relation to egg nog date back more than a thousand years, egg nog as we know it now likely originated in the English region of East Anglia, with the "nog" a nod to the Middle English word, noggin, a small mug used to serve alcohol. There are other origin stories, including a Medieval tale and a Colonial mispronunciation. What's not up for debate is this beverage’s popularity during the holiday season. We have Egg Nog and Light Egg Nog, both satisfying on their own or with the traditional splash of rum, dreamy in a latte and incredibly indulgent in a French toast recipe. That's right; we’re suggesting egg nog French toast. Oui. Not rich enough? We do sell chocolate chips...
This year, we're selling Trader Joe's Egg Nog for $2.69 for each 32 ounce carton – the same price as last year and 30¢ less than two years ago. No question about it; that's a great value! You'll find it in our dairy case.
