Yes, I am a huge fan of eggnog and have been since I was a kid. Spiked or not I love the taste and the way it puts me in the holiday spirit. I know many who are not a fan will not touch the stuff.  Puzzles me lol.

Now to me, the only downfall on this delicious delight is the calories and how much it may make you look like Santa.

When you’re sipping on your this tasty treat, calorie intake is probably the last thing on your mind. Sadly, I have to tell you that when you’re reaching for the eggnog, you might want to think again.

How Fattening Is Eggnog?

Eggnog is high in calories about 223 of them, its because of the saturated fat in whole milk and heavy cream according to womanshealthmag.com.  It's also has a lot of sugar, but the good news is it does not have a lot of sodium.

Christy Brissette R.D., President of 80 Twenty Nutrition says. Of course, toss in a shot of rum, and you're adding another 64 calories for a total of about 176 calories per serving.

 

Like mom use to say if your gonna have a cookie, have a cookie. After all, we all tend to overindulge over the holidays, so enjoy that eggnog I say.

This May Make You Feel Old, lol

Check out this Lansing eggnog commercial from 1984, pay attention to the 80's hair and clothes from way back then.
