PICK A SIDE: Eggnog—great or gross?


Published December 11, 2020 at 5:53 pm


If you’ve been to pretty much any supermarket during the last two weeks, you’ve probably seen many have a certain beverage only available during the holidays on display: eggnog.

Despite the fact it has basically become the official beverage of the holiday season, it’s a pretty polarizing drink—many people love it, while many people hate it.

Those who enjoy it do so for its sweet taste and creamy texture, plus the fact it tastes great with a splash of rum in it.

However, those who dislike it do so for similar reasons, many find the taste too sweet and the texture off-putting.

Additionally, due to its ingredients—whole milk, heavy cream, and sugar—it’s both high in saturated fat and calories, which could be why it’s only available for a short time (it could also be why some people tend to put on a few pounds over the holidays).

So, readers, what do you think? Do you enjoy a glass of eggnog or would you rather pour it down the sink?
