Kawartha Dairy egg nog
. Theeee best, almost milky white in colour. - not the bright yellow stuff everybody else cranks out.. Do i have to drive to Bobcaygeon to get it? Anyone seen it in T.O?
No idea if they carry the egg nog, but the Bruno's at Yonge and Heath carries Kawartha Dairy ice cream so it might be worth giving them a call.
I can't help you with that brand of Egg Nog but am in full agreement with your opinion regarding most of the yellow stuff sold. I suggest you try the Mac's brand from your local Mac's Milk store, it is milky white in colour, rich without that phony taste common elsewhere but it is not cheap. It is the only egg nog we will buy.
I've never had the Kawartha and haven't seen it.
The best commercial eggnog I've tried is the President's Choice perishable/refrigerated version in the black carton. It does have the yellowish colour and the gums, but it has the most natural flavour of all the brands I've sampled. Indeed, it is the only brand I can stomach. Hardly homemade, but decent.
Do not bother with the PC shelf stable stuff in the plastic bottles. These taste more like Ensure than eggnog.
I actually don't mind the President's Choice shelf version. I thought it had a nice, creamy consistency. But I also spike mine with good amounts of very good dark, spiced rum so that might have something to do with it. I've never really been much of an egg nog drinker but in small amounts I find it delicious around the holidays.
But now I'm curious...other than Kawartha, what are other excellent versions on the market? I'd love to try them.
