They do sell all the ingredients to make your own year round.

Although... if you had to miss a couple of badges, the Egg Nog Run would be my first choice!

I had trouble finding eggnog in my local store even before Xmas. I had to ask where it was, and there were no options, just one kind. (Later at a different store -- Giant vs. Safeway -- I saw lots of eggnog, lots of brands, lots of different kinds.)
Yeah, you didn't miss much.

I drank probably a gallon of eggnog this past Xmas season.

JJ you'd love the eggnog challenge badge then.
The only eggnog I could find was Johnnie Walker. Had to check it a couple times to make sure it wasn't spiked.

We had DIY eggnog when I was a kid, and not sure there was any other kind back then. It was ok, but not really enjoyable. I have had the occasional random taste of commercial eggnog from time to time, but don't think I would be able to countenance more than a teaspoonful, and only for a good cause.

Kind of reminds me of the Drummond Island rogaine which was a thing for many years, at least during the 90s. A team got extra points for downing a can of Spam at a certain control. Not worth it! Better to just go find another control. Back then it was the only kind of spam you might encounter.

I thought about making my own, but saw the ingredients and was quickly in the same camp as Charlie.

What? You don’t have to make it? What has the world come to?

In Canada they apparently had tons of varieties including chocolate.

They (Hood) had several flavors around here a few years ago (I think cinnamon, pumpkin, sugar cookie, etc.). Maybe still do if you hunt around enough.

The right way for me to do an eggnog run would be to run down to Stillman's Dairy Farm and pick up a quart made from all local ingredients. Eight mile round trip.

Last week I saw Coconut nog so I guess some of our varieties aren't widely appreciated! I like egg nog but I usually buy one litre in December and drink small glasses over 7-10 days. Drinking a full litre beer-mile style was not nearly as pleasant. I imagined my arteries exploding when I finished.

Takes me a couple of months to get through a gallon. I pour a little into a glass and take sips. So it's something like Charlie's teaspoon dose, but between early November and the end of the year, I have quite a few of them. A full litre at once would be of no interest.

We split a quart between four of us for the nog jog and, since the servings were each only 1/4 of that, each round was pretty tolerable. I find it pretty tasty but I'm not sure I'd love to do a whole quart by myself for one of these.

I think Gary Robbins, the RD who came up with the Nog Jog challenge, regretted it in the end. He saved it for his final badge.

Wow! Sooooo glad I opted for the minimum shot!

@Bash -- that video almost made me vomit, so I know that I wouldn't have made it through the challenge. :-)

:) On the bright side, I'll bet they don't include that challenge in any future Scavenger Hunts.
