This is how a pumpkin spice latte should be!

I found this pumpkin eggnog at the grocery store the other day and decided to give it a whirl. I don't drink straight eggnog; it's much too rich for that. Instead, I use it as a creamer/sweetener in my coffee in the mornings for a seasonal treat. This stuff is great for that! It's like eggnog mixed with pumpkin pie, and is perfect in my coffee. Much cheaper than a pumpkin spice latte or even an eggnog latte... take that, Starbucks!

I've missed being here! I've been trying to get ready for the upcoming holidays and have been running videos on InstaGC a lot, trying to pad that gift budget, and that ties up my computer. I'll probably get that going in a bit, but I wanted to stop by here first.

@kobesbuddy Thank you! Currently I'm trying to figure out how to make it less stressful... I've looked at getting one of those premade Thanksgiving dinners, but I think it might be better if I rent a 2nd fridge for 2 months so I have enough time and room to do the meal prep while still having room for the rest of the meals we'll be eating during the week the kids are off school. I still haven't quite adjusted to being a stepmom of so many loud and active kids.

That is a great idea to use it in your coffee!

It really cuts down on the richness. I can't imagine drinking straight eggnog, that would be like drinking pudding!

@spiderdust I really am not a fan of egg nog, but your idea of putting it in coffee would make me a fan if used in that manner all the time.

@Corbin5 Yeah, it's a lot like the consistency and thickness of coffee creamer on its own anyway!

I hope you find it! According to their website, they have a bunch of different eggnog flavors. I didn't see the sugar cookie one, which also has me curious.

We just burned through a carton ourselves. You're right, it's great in coffee.

It has a definite pumpkin pie flavor, which is nice. Have you seen any of their other flavors?

@spiderdust - I haven't. This was more than likely a Halloween thing.

It's awfully rich as straight eggnog. I can't drink it that way.

I didn't buy a single Pumpkin Spice Latte from them this year... although I did get a Zombie Frappucino and a Holiday Spice Flat White.
