The holidays are upon us and for many that means it’s time to sip (or glug down) that wonderfully creamy substance known as eggnog.
Eggnog has a somewhat unclear history. Consensus, at least according to Wikipedia, seems to be from the mid-eighteenth century. The first recorded use of the word “eggnogg” was in 1775, when a clergyman in Maryland wrote a poem about it. There are variations of what North Americans call eggnog in many countries, including Mexico and Germany.
We love eggnog at Abundance. We also especially love that there are so many non-dairy varieties now available, of which we carry many!
