  1. sounds easy but does it really taste like the real thing? i’ll have to try it find out. i’ll feel like a fool for paying for the store version if it does.

  2. I’m not a fan of Buttermilk in any form. Either way I just might try this smaller version. I’m looking for an easy mix for sharing.


  3. I have tried to make this taste good. My grandson loves eggnog. It still is not tasting like eggnog. 😞. If anyone gets it to taste good let us know please.😥

    • That’s kind of strange, which recipe did you try, the big version or the small version? I made the small version using french vanilla pudding mix (jello brand) and added a pinch of cinnamon to it and when I blended it with ice cubes it tasted exactly like eggnog. What brand of eggnog do you tend to buy?
