Pennsylvania Dutch Egg Nog

CarrieWas218 Dec 12, 2013 10:14 PM

Discovered this stuff at BevMo several years ago and now I never seem to be able to find it…

I went to two BevMos today (San Bruno and Serramonte) and both said it sold out almost immediately.

If anyone sees any around, could you let me know?

    Try Safeway, I picked up a bottle there a few weeks ago.

      "Just the facts, ma'am"

      (Sorry, I couldn't resist!)

      According a quick web search, this is a very rich mix of real dairy cream, rum, brandy and blended whiskey with a 14.75-percent kick of alcohol.

      A 1/2-cup serving of Pennsylvania Dutch Egg Nog contains 220 calories, including approximately 140 from fat. This serving packs some 20 grams of carbohydrates, or around 7 percent of the recommended daily intake for someone on a 2,000-calorie-per-day diet.

      Of course...when was the last time you restrained yourself to have only 1/2 cup of eggnog?!?!?

        Well, what I liked about the stuff was that I could have a few sips from an aperitif glass before going to bed during the holidays, so I was actually pretty good about restraining myself from downing a half-a-cup at a time!

        But I still can't find it!

          Good for you, you're disciplined. Not my DH, though; he drinks eggnog by the tumblerful, LOL.....that's why I seldom make it at home.

          I find it easy to make eggnog anyway. I prefer a cooked custard eggnog. Last year I experimented with making a coconut milk version that was very popular with folks. Another variant is using light brown sugar instead of white.

          Are you telling me that a carton isn't a single serving?

            Oh, Poser… That just made me spit up coffee all over myself!

          I did end up buying the Cost Plus/Whole Foods version, Holly Nog, which is made with orange wine.

          Not nearly as smooth or kicky as the Pennsylvania Dutch and while it is a far cry from what I really wanted, is not has bad as I thought it would be.

            I saw the Pennsylvania Dutch brand stuff yesterday at the Safeway near me in Sunnyvale if you want to make a trip down here. On Hollenbeck near Homestead.

            I always thought the Amish were teetotalers.....

              You sparked my interest and Bevmo online shows they have a few bottles at the Van Ness store, for whatever that's worth.

                I was in the Half Moon Bay Safeway on Friday and when I asked about it, was told they sold the last three bottles that morning….

                I just don't think I'm gett'n any this year.

                  The Menlo Park Bevmo is showing 10 bottles in stock.

              If you find yourself in Salinas, here's the end cap display at Star Market.

                Mollie Stones Sausalito has about 4 cases. I bought 1 to try, but this year I liked Strauss' version almost as much as my own.
