Two days ago, while shopping at CVS Pharmacy, I noticed that Garelick Farms Holiday Egg Nog was on sale and I purchased one 1 quart container of this tasty item. Every year, this creamy, seasonal beverage is stocked and sold at New England food retailers and I try to purchase at least a couple of quarts every year. This egg nog is such a delicious item, I have decided to write a review of it. Presented here, is one food writer’s product review of Garelick Farms Holiday Egg Nog.
The one quart (946 ml) container of Garelick Farms Holiday Egg Nog is being reviewed here. According to the product’s nutrition label, the container holds eight 1/2 cup servings. To be honest, I got four servings from the quart container that I just finished. That’s because I love egg nog and I can drink copious amounts of it. This top – notch egg nog is also available in half – gallon – sized containers.
While I absolutely love this product, I think that it and all egg nogs are relatively expensive. But, one must remember that this is a seasonal specialty item, that is made with high – quality ingredients. If you’re a lover of egg nog, however, you’ll pay the price.
The regular (seasonal) price charged for one 1 quart container of Garelick Farms Holiday Egg Nog at Hartford, Connecticut area CVS Pharmacies is $3.09. The sale price that I paid for one 1 quart container of this egg nog was $2.50.
The consistency offered by Garelick Farms Holiday Egg Nog is silky – smooth. With milk, corn syrup, cream and egg yolks as the first four ingredients, one would certainly expect this beverage to be creamy. It is thicker in consistency than milk, but it also maintains sort of a whipped – like consistency.

Taste / Flavor
If you like drinking egg nog, chances are, you’ll really enjoy the taste of Garelick Farms Holiday Egg Nog. If you’ve never tried drinking egg nog, this brand is a very good version of the product. The flavor of this egg nog is rich, sweet and creamy, but not overly rich or sweet. According to the package label, this egg nog is a blend of vanilla and rum flavors, with secret spices.
To me, the blend of milk, cream, egg yolks and the secret spices creates a very tasty beverage that I can drink large amounts of. I really wish that Garelick Farms Holiday Egg Nog was available all year – round, but since it isn’t, I appreciate its flavor very much. In a way, I think that the flavor of Garelick Farms Holiday Egg Nog is almost decadent and a treat that can only be savored at certain times of the year.
Garelick Farms Holiday Egg Nog is packaged in a standard – type cardboard milk carton. The carton is dark green with an appealing close – up illustration of two cups of the enclosed product on the front label and the rear label lists all pertinent ingredient and nutritional information. The carton is easy to open and it also re – closes effectively.
This is a very good version of holiday egg nog. Its rich, creamy flavor and consistency make it a special treat that is only available during the winter holiday season. The retail price of this item is comparable to other brands of egg nog and it is stocked at sold at many food retailers in the northeast United States approximately from Thanksgiving time through New Years Day. Garelick Farms Holiday Egg Nog is highly recommended by this food writer.
