    Normally it is the same as Advocaat - you can buy it from any supermarket!

    Although, I just looked in Tesco's website and they also have a Jamaican version - Serge Island Egg Nog Drink 240ml.

    Good luck - I never did like it myself, it is one of those "marmite" things I think!

    You know, you're right! Advocat and lemonade yum yum I could just drink it now - I'm still chuckling at the marmite thing.

    Ocado were doing it. But real homemade eggnog and the kind you buy taste completely different. Advocaat is a liqueur. Traditional eggnog is non-alcoholic.

    If you want to make it at home pm I have a recipe.

    Traditional, refrigerated eggnog is not generally sold in the UK. Trust me, I've been looking for 3 years now!

    You can buy Jamaican "eggnog" in little box cartons (like Ribena :P) which is similar but not quite the same. Honestly, the closest thing you can find to traditional American eggnog to make it yourself - it's really not that hard.

    Buying the preserved stuff in a cans/cartons is a very poor second. If you're like me and grew up on the fresh stuff you can find next to the milk, then there's really no substitute.

    Oh crikey, I've shown my ignorance now but seeing as I only have a sip once a year it's understandable - I hope.

    Selfridges in London also sell it (last time I looked- early december!) may have sold out this time of year though.

    If you want a taste, you could try the made up version starbucks offer with coffee? not sure if it tastes anything like the real eggnog but it calls itself "eggnog latte".

    I thought Advocaat and lemonade was called a Snowball.
    Tesco sell cartons of non alcoholc egg nog as I bought some a couple of weeks ago instore. Can't remember which aisle but it wasn't next to the milk.
    It was in the organic or world foods section.
