      Just thought I'd bump this thread to revive it for 2011. It's about that time!

            Nope...when I asked, they said they wouldn't carry it due to the artifical flavoring it contained...

                  Why is it worth the trip when I can just go to the grocery store? What's the advantage?

                    More than likely you'll get it a little cheaper and the dairy offers other products you don't know about. Like the Chocolate milk, which is from ANOTHER WORLD. And if your store is out of it the dairy is sure to have it.

                      The chocolate milk seems to be in most every store; I've found it to be FAR more common than the Egg Nog, though I'm sure part of that is based on the seasonality of the latter.

                      I also don't think the chocolate milk is all that great, but that's really neither here nor there.

                            I saw it today at the same Ralph's as well, but I was very sad that Broguiere's regular milk has all but disappeared from their shelves.

                            Gelson's Silverlake about 30 minutes ago. It's actually on sale.

                              They have had it the last couple years at Gelsons. I like it with a little spiced rum.

                                It's even better with a LOT of spiced rum. You do kinda want to be home for the evening...

                                  Bristol Farms normally has it early on. I will check out Manhattan Beach this weekend of the weather cools down. I have a fresh nutmeg grinder and a little brandy and I am happy in front of a fire. Its like a meal in itself :)

                                    Any sightings? I checked Studio City Ralphs a couple days ago and was told they should have some in within the week.

                                      I haven't seen it anywhere yet... Henry's in Fullerton often has some of the first (even scooping the Unnecessarily Large Whole Paycheque in Tustin).

                                      I find it's very thick and undrinkable unless cut with liquor (or milk, if you're a "virgin" eggnog drinker).

                                      What it IS great for un-cut, for the one week the seasons overlap, is drowning guavas in it.

                                        Broguiere's eggnog is too sweet for me. But I have successfully mixed it with a little milk, cream, and Kentucky Eggnog Spike, a spiced blend of bourbon, brandy, and rum -- see epicurious.com for recipe. Leftover Spike in a sipping glass goes well with cold pizza, Spam sandwiches, oatmeal, ... anything needing (or not needing) a boost.

                                          Harry: I agree with you on the Kentucky Eggnog Spike from Epi; it fixes up any eggnog real nice ;) Though, I must say, Broguiere's ain't too bad.
