Just a note for those who love eggnog. (Those who don’t, what the hell is wrong with you?)
The first grocery store we’ve seen with eggnog (and I check frequently, trust me) was Earth Fare on October 7. They had plentiful stock of Homestead Creamery brand eggnog, which as luck would have it is my favorite.
Earth Fare is only in the Southeast and Midwest, and even at that it exhibits a bit of a clumped dispersion, so beyond that I cannot help you.
Still, eggnog on October 7! That’s a new record.
