Soy Eggnog and Natural Candy Canes

If you're looking for some "eggnog flavor" over the holidays I've recently tried two vegan nogs.  The Vitasoy and Soy Nice brand.  Both were good but different.  If you prefer a thinner "eggnog style" with a definite spicey flavor you'll want to go with Vitasoy Organic Holly Nog! This one is 60 calories and 11 gms sugar per 1/2 cup serving. The Vitasoy would be suitable as a hot beverage if you like that kind of thing - I do. The So Nice would not.

The So Nice Noel Nog is quite a bit thicker and spices are not as distinct.  It is also 60 calories per half cup serving but slightly higher in sugar at 16 gm. Both are very tasty and certainly worthy of gracing your holiday table.

One more product that we tried out for the festive season were some "natural" (organic, no corn syrup, gluten free, no artificial colors or flavors, vegan and kosher) candy canes.  Made by Tru Sweets - they have a slightly peppermint slightly sweet flavor that is geared to the younger set but I enjoyed them too!  Our resident 4 year old loved them - he had one and then helped decorate the tree with the remainder.  They have a nice soft pinky-red color to them and look beautiful.
