DALLAS — Move over pumpkin spice – Gingerbread Eggnog is about to be the new autumn “it” beverage. Borden, one of America’s favorite dairy companies founded in 1857, has introduced the new limited-edition flavored eggnog just in time for holiday celebrations. Along with the new offering, Borden’s Classic Eggnog is returning to the dairy aisle.
Prior to modern-day eggnog, English aristocrats mixed surplus eggs and milks with brandy or sherry. Today, this decadent, eggy brew is a tradition enjoyed by American families during the holiday season.
“The holidays are a magical time of year, reuniting families and friends to celebrate and indulge a little,” said Borden Chief Marketing Officer Joe DePetrillo. “Borden is honored to be part of these joyous moments by offering two deliciously creamy, rich versions of this Yuletide treat.”
Both Borden’s Classic Eggnog and Gingerbread Eggnog will be widely distributed to major retailers in the Southeast and Ohio through Dec. 31. The new Gingerbread Eggnog will be available in a 32-ounce bottle for a suggested retail price of $3.29, while the Classic Eggnog will be offered in pint sizes for a suggested retail price of $1.99, as well as quarts starting at $3.29 and half-gallons at $5.69.
