It's a seasonal wonder that disappears right after the New Year's week, so be sure to get into a Starbucks near you for a weekly dose. The latte is made with milk, eggnog flavoring, and a rich serving of whipped cream. This one is definitely not for your diet day; a Grande Starbucks Eggnog Latte contains 510 calories, 29 grams of fat, and is loaded with sugar. You can cut the fat by switching to soy or skim milk, and holding on the whipped cream.
Now you can indulge in the delicious taste of "eggnog" often - without the guilt!

Current estimates show that there is a 1 in 10,000 chance that the eggs in your nog could contain a harmful bacteria. To avoid the possibility of food poisoning the Center for Science in the Public Interest recommends that eggs used to make eggnog be heated to 160° Fahrenheit (71° Celsius) before using. Another way to tell if the eggs are ready and safe is if they coat a metal spoon. The consequences of could involve salmonella.
The Mayo Clinic tells us that salmonella can take from a few hours to as long as two days to incubate in the system. An infection is characterized by abdominal pain, nausea, diarrhea, vomiting, high-temperature, headache, chills, and even blood in the stool. The infection generally lasts about four days, but can go as long as seven. Seek medical attention as in some cases this can be deadly.
Eggnog made in dairies is usually pasteurized, which means that harmful bacteria have already been eliminated through a heating process. It generally is also without alcohol.
So when you whip up a batch of eggnog play it safe. Heat your eggs, or buy it from a dairy and add your own finishing touches.
If you see a fat man who's jolly and cute
Wearing a beard and a red flannel suit
And if he is chuckling and laughing away
While flying around in a miniature sleigh
With eight tiny reindeer to pull him along
Then - let's face it - Your eggnog's too strong!!
