The real reason: there are standards for Egg Nog, so if you call it that it must have milk, cream, a minimum 6 percent butterfat, and a minimum 1 percent egg yolk by weight. By calling it “Holiday Nog” they don’t have to adhere to those standards, and instead use cheaper ingredients. Federal regulations protect you from that …if you pay attention.
