A few years ago, I accidentally started a hobby of finding disgusting holiday beverages and sharing them on social media. Here's my collection, along with the original commentary.
  1. Red Velvet Chocolate Holiday Milk
    Looks like Target has developed a strong candidate in the quest to end eggnog's reign as Most Disgusting Holiday Beverage.
  2. Holly Nog
    I think I've found a winner for this year's Holiday Beverage of Horror: Holly Nog. Yes, that's eggnog made with wine. Don't forget the real dairy.
  3. Pumpkin Eggnog
    This year's Holiday Beverage of Horror has an early entry.
  4. Snickerdoodle Holiday Milk
    Found in the eggnog section at Target: Snickerdoodle Holiday Milk. Do I add flour to this and make cookies? Add it to my coffee? Maybe this is what Austen meant by "I am half agony, half hope. . ."
  5. Pumpkin Creme Soda
    The Holiday Beverage of Horror season has begun with the fright fest that is Pumpkin Cream Soda.
  6. Maple Creme Soda
    "I wish my syrup was carbonated for easier drinking!" said no one, ever.
  7. Gingerbread Soda
    I typically hit the Holiday Beverage of Horror jackpot at World Market, but they're apparently barely making an effort this year.
  8. Chocolate Mint Holly Nog
    I can't imagine being drunk enough to think this Holiday Beverage of Horror could be tasty. It's mint chocolate-flavored wine mixed with "real Wisconsin cream."
