Those are the exact words as it’s read on the bottle of eggnog I just picked up from Arethusa Farm Dairy in Bantam. It’s not your everyday eggnog. Forget everything that you have ever tasted before and take a taste of times forgotten. Consider it a trip back to yesteryear, a bit of Christmas past if you will. Packed with rich ingredients of milk, cream, whole eggs, pure vanilla cinnamon, and nutmeg, this eggnog has a memorable taste that you’ll never forget and will leave you asking for more.
I got a tip from my good friend Daniella Forte from The Litchfield County Times that it was the best eggnog she had ever tasted so naturally that was my cue to taste it for myself. I’m like a guinea pig when it comes to anything regarding food. A mans gotta eat, right? Might as well try it all! Though I’m not exactly sure where it ends up. That’s another story.
Today, I walked into the farm dairy located on Route 202 in Bantam and demanded I try a sample of this so called best eggnog. Happily, they offered a sample. I wasn’t at all shy. As soon as they handed it to me, down it went! Gone in seconds. I couldn’t help but look around for just another sampling. The rich, creamy eggnog tasted just like it was made from scratch without any extra ingredients. I couldn’t believe it. I just had to have a bottle of this for myself, so of course, that’s exactly what I did. I purchased their collectors bottle right from the fridge. Even the bottle brings back memories of a Christmas past! Remember the days the milkman came to your door to deliver glass bottles of milk? That’s exactly what Arethusa has brought back to life!
The good old days. A simpler time now steeped back in history but brought to life by a local farm dairy. Thanks to Arethusa, I suddenly found my Christmas spirit.
