Egg Nog...YAY!!! Egg Nog is proof that Santa loves us and wants us to be happy! Each sip is a wonderful, rich holiday experience that has no parallel in other festive drinks, foods, or activities. An intoxicating blend of forbidden ingredients, Egg Nog has a sweet subtlety which can only be compared to beautiful passages of poetry or great music. In these days of the flash, crass, and cash Christmas, Egg Nog is a reminder of a time when the Holiday was real and our greatest pleasures were simpler. Just the very though of a glass of Egg Nog brings sweet distant Christmas memories to mind, not just my memories but memories that reach far into the past to Christmases long before me. And on top of all that Egg Nog is just pure, unadulterated YUM. It tastes like angels dancing on the tip of your tongue...If one sip doesn't send you to Heaven, you're probably already living in Hell! And that's why I say: Egg Nog: YAY!!!

Egg Nog...NAY!!! Egg Nog looks like half finished cake batter, taste likes a mouthful of International Delights Non-Dairy Creamer, and smells like the stuff the school janitor would sprinkle over vomit. Which is appropriate because that's what drinking Egg Nog makes me want to do. Didn't we invent the 20th Century so that a mixture of raw eggs, cream, and sugar was no longer considered a good idea? C'mon: Raw eggs? Oh how yummy! Blech! And what the hell is "nog" anyway? Elf phlegm??? Egg Nog, like a monarchy and hats with big buckles on them, is a relic of the 18th century that should only be regarded as a horror of our past. And that's why I say Egg Nog: NAY!!!

Ha-ha! Great thread, woofmutt! Though it is a little like last year's Egg Nog thread HERE. Still, I say: Egg Nog: Yay! The stuff is mind blowingly good and just plain evil. Like French fries. Or bacon. Or French fries with bacon on 'em.

One thing I don't get though is the big to-do all the coffee shacks and shops make over Egg Nog Lattes 'bout this time every year. Dunno if that's just a local thing or national, but 'round these parts they hang out professionally printed banners announcin' to all they have Egg Nog Lattes. It's like they think they got some sorta exotic concoction yuh couldn't figger out on yer own. Coffee + Egg Nog = Egg Nog and Coffee. Woo-Hoo!

You wasted post 669 on this? I'd rather drink 151 and cream cheese.

I don't care what it's made out of, I can speed-drink this stuff no problem. I could probably down a quart of this stuff in like 30 seconds, and I not joking. Unfortunately when you get the 'premium' stuff, ie., not the Soy-Nog or the Low Fat you're dealing with biblical amounts of fat and calories. Therefore this holiday season I have downed 0 ounces thus far, and may not have any at all before the holidays are over. Sad but true. Ya might as well pour it in your pants and get on the scale to see that you've ganed 10 pounds. Why do all the good things in life have price tag?

I say egg nog YAY!!!

I've loved this stuff since I was a kid and as an adult the version with hard spirits and heated is all the better.

On a cold winter night, by a fire, with da Mrs. -bring on the Nog or a good Hot Mulled Wine and that's all I need to get me through the damn dreariness of Winter!

Only problem is my Mrs is Lactose Intolerant so these days bout the only Nog I see is of the SOY variety and that my friends is pretty nasty!

The best on the planet is making your own completely from scratch!

Not into it that stuff at all. Something about the taste and name freaks me out. Eggs are already weird enough with out adding nog to them. I want to order an egg nog someplace and say "Yes I will have the egg nog, but please hold the egg and add extra nog." Or maybe start a new online trend... Web Nogging. I do think egg Grog is cool though:

P.S Woofmutt, your funny!

Definitely Yay! For me, it's not Christmas without egg-nog (with dark rum) and mixed nuts in the shell. These days I try to limit the intake, though, as it does wreak havok with the waistline.

had the opportunity to do the egg nog( and it MUST be 'nogged' AKA BOOZE) this weekend at 2 Christmas parties--took NO OPPORTUNITY to avail myself yet have done so in the past...I agree with the above that stuff is just TOO THICK as a beverage.. I am on a ANTI-THICK or HOT rant I guess (see buttered rum forum). I chose KETEL ONE & tonic with homegrown key lime slices instead and probably felt FAR BETTER in the a.m. than my wife who chose the LOW-FAT eggnog w/rum mode
