As the kids ride off to their first day of school and the evenings start to get cooler, we’re all starting to have thoughts of the seasons changing settling in. Seasonal changes means seasonal drinks will be hitting the shelves soon – including our famous Eggnog and Old-Fashioned Custard! (Stay tuned on an announcement about when you can find them #OnTheShelf!)
While most people know us because of our Eggnog, more and more people are discovering the wonders of our Old-Fashioned (or Boiled) Custard. So what’s the difference?
The Flavor Profiles
While both beverages have a base of egg and cream, the way they taste is quite different.
Eggnog is the classic seasonal flavor profile, featuring the perfect balance of nutmeg and cinnamon. The warm rich flavor will fill your mouth with the spirit of the holidays. It’s the perfect addition to a fall-flavored latte or paired with a rich chocolate cake.
Old-Fashioned Custard takes a lighter approach to flavor. It has a creamy vanilla flavor with just a touch of turmeric. Many people say it tastes just like a melted down Homestead Creamery vanilla milkshake! It tastes great when paired with a fruity dessert, but is perfectly enjoyable to sip solo.
If the spice flavors of Eggnog aren’t your thing, we highly recommend giving our Old-Fashioned Custard a try!
Ways to Enjoy
While the way they taste may be different, you can enjoy eggnog and custard in all of the same ways: drink it straight, add it to your coffee or favorite holiday beverage, incorporate it into your favorite baked goods recipe, or turn it into a creamy slushie!
No matter how you choose to enjoy your eggnog and custard, make sure you do it while spending time with people who matter most! There’s nothing that warms the heart more than your favorite creamy beverage and quality time. Be on the lookout for Homestead Creamery Eggnog & Custard in stores near you, coming soon!
