Eggnog Donuts

Eggnog Donuts

As Clark Griswold dips his moose mug into the bowl full of eggnog and recites…”It’s good…it’s good…” we realize that he is talking about what’s going on in his life at the moment, but it could also be that he might be talking about the seasonal treat in his cup.

Another holiday tradition

Originating in England around 1775, for well over 100 years, eggnog has been know as a holiday treat. The tradition of drinking eggnog at Christmas was spurred since it was the beverage of choice used to toast to health and prosperity.

Another thing that eggnog is known for is being mixed with alcohol, namely rum in today’s day and age. It’s also been mixed with sherry, whiskey, and more. 

Holiday traditions in a donut

You want to help your customers keep their holiday traditions alive, and with Eggnog Donuts, you can do just that! Not only that, the kids can enjoy these as well since there is no actual alcohol in the donuts.
