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, though the debate rages on in the world of nog.
What's not up for debate is this creamy potion’' popularity during the holiday season. To satisfy your nog needs, we have Egg Nog and Light Egg Nog (90% less fat and 40% fewer calories than the original), both of which are perfectly pleasing on their own or with the traditional splash of rum. You can also add them to coffee to make a downright dreamy latte. And then there's the possibility of incredibly indulgent French toast. Thatss right; we're suggesting egg nog French toast. Oui oui. Not rich enough? We do sell chocolate chips...
This year, we're selling Trader Joe's Egg Nog and Light Egg Nog, made without artificial preservatives or flavors, in 32 ounce cartons for $2.69 each -- the same price as last year. No question about it; that's a great value! You'll find it in our dairy case.
