After doing a favorite Christmas Eggnog list in 2010, the Elves decided to update the list. In addition to the favorites on the 2010 list, we have added one more to the list for 2014. The Christmas Milk Brand Eggnog really is one of the Elves’ Favorite drinks. Very smooth taste, and a great blend of all the appropriate ingredients. This brand comes in at the top of the list of the Elves’ favorite eggnogs. Horizon Eggnog, Gustafson Farms Eggnog, and Fresh Market Eggnog round out the list of Santa’s Elves favorites.
These eggnogs come close to Santa’s Eggnog that we have at the North Pole.
There aren’t that many great store brand eggnogs available this year, but Santa Claus and his elves will be monitoring the eggnogs available to see if there are any that come close the Santa’s Eggnog that the elves enjoy up here at the North Pole.
