Eggnog Taste Test

Two years ago, Slate.com decided to go out and find the best eggnog. They rated six store bought nogs and two homemade ones. Surprisingly, they hated almost everything they tasted and claimed that the only real winner was the homemade eggnog recipe from epicurious.

"Eggnog is not likely to foster good will, nor holiday cheer amongst your guests. If you simply must nog, go homemade. There is no substitute."

I personally think their review is flawed, because of course the homemade one is going to taste better. Its got fresh ingredients and I'm sure it was made with love. Read the review yourself and then tell us your thoughts. What do you think is the best nog out there?

Rubialala, I would have to agree, my favorite store bought egg nog is Berkeley Farms. However, it's so thick, I like to cut mine with a little bit of lowfat milk - probably some sort of eggnog sacrilege, but it makes tasty!

Silk makes a soy egg nog...if you drink it with an open mind, and get over the fact that it is super thin, it tastes just like thick egg nog..hard to explain but they sell it in a quart size only so if you buy it try it and onlt like it no big loss... I'm all in.

I was trying to get a picture of his new teeth, but I couldn't get him to smile wide enough. He smiles pretty much all the time- he is PERFECT!

After reading the recipe, I think I'll save those calories for something that tastes a lot better!

blech! I hate eggnog. I buy some for my family as a tradition when we decorate the tree, but i think it's gross. I would be willing to try a homemade version. Yum, do you have a recipe?

i never liked eggnog. then, one christmas eve at the age of 14 i decided I LOVED it. i had about 4 big glasses of the stuff. then something terrible happened. no, no it wasn't alcoholic. that's not where this story is going. instead, i got a terrible headache THAT LASTED ABOUT 2 MONTHS. i had an eggnog headache. it was awful. i haven't drunk it since. eggnog:4, bjornwinner:0

I like the Hood Light Eggnog. Sometimes I even cut it with skim milk.
