People tend to have strong feelings about eggnog, either loving it and drinking as much as they can during the season or wondering what the draw is. Trader Joe’s Egg Nog is one of the better grocery store options. “When does eggnog start happening at [Trader Joe’s]?” enquired one Redditor, along with a pun, “Nog gonna lie, I’m getting antsy.”
While eggnog was once a holiday staple, it’s become less common in recent years. Starbucks used to always have an Egg Nog Latte in the winter months, but 2023’s holiday offerings don’t feature any eggnog drinks at all. “It seems like every year there is less and less eggnog,” commented a Redditor. “I’ve noticed that too. None of the coffee shops are doing egg[nog] drinks anymore, and those are the only seasonal drinks I actually like,” agreed another.
Luckily, one coffee shop hasn’t completely stopped. Caribou Coffee’s Egg Nog Cold Foam was a hit last year, and this year it’s offering a Vanilla Oat Nog Latte. Considering Trader Joe’s doesn’t have a non-dairy nog option this year, Caribou’s contribution should make quite a few people happy.
