No thanks on the nog. Hot chocolate made from almond milk and a heavy pour of 90 proof peppermint schnapps. In a to-go mug. On the streets looking at Christmas lights. That's how you do drink holiday style.

This greatly displeases me. I may make a run to Canada to stock up on their Canadian Peppermint Chocolate soymilk. I don't want coconut flavouring in my dang peppermint chocolate soymilk.


Come back to Asheville! Westsoy Chocolate Peppermint Stick at A-Saves. . . my pantry is stocked.

Haven't tried rum in nog, but it seems like a good idea. . . after all, the rumnog pecan cookies from V'Con are pretty dang tasty. Kahlua + nog = amazeballs.

I. . . don't really mind stevia? Like, I don't love the taste (does anyone?) but think that chocolate + mint + stevia sounds like a good enough combination. Especially with booze added. Yes.

I like liquid stevia but not powder and I like being able to add it myself. I feel that commercial products made with stevia taste too chemically and...powdery?

If you skip the peppermint in that, I'm going back to soymilk.

I have never had nog, stevia or any of these types of milk. My knowledge of milk is exclusively limited to unsweetened soya, homemade plain almond and Kara plain coconut. I have never had any kind of yoghurt, cream or icecream which isn't soya.

Out of the club.

Stevia is gross. I bought some ages ago when I read how great it was and it tasted like the stuff you paint on your fingernails to stop you biting them. ERGH! So bitter and gross.

I accidentally bought a Stevia root beer when I was in Austin and it was okay. Not as good as the real stuff, I could tell the difference & I wouldn't buy it again, but I didn't think it was hideous.

Was it Zevia? It's the only thing containing stevia that I can stand.

bitter? i think Stevia is super super sweet. before i stopped drinking coffee i used it in my coffee and there was a very fine line between just right and ruining the entire cup.
i think coffee is the only thing stevia could be good for. sweetening sodas or baked goods with it makes me think it would taste like aspartame (its not made out of aspartame but too much tastes similar to me)

The stuff I bought had a really bitter chemically taste to it. It was sweet as well, it was super weird and totally gross. I tossed it.

I think people have wildly different reactions to stevia. I don't think it tastes awful, but I only like it in certain applications, like herbal tea or lemonade. I had Zevia soda a couple times and I hated it.

I think all of you are crazy concerning stevia but I also think alcohol ruins the flavor of drinks more than anything so hey.

Not to say that I think stevia should replace sugar in things but I use stevia and think it is fine.

I'm finding a half a teaspoon in my tea helps me stay away from the biscuits and sweets. It is weird though. Too much and it feels like my tea was used to clean dirty coins.

I don't even think it tastes bitter. It just makes things taste kind of off, and it leaves this weird filmy aftertaste/feel.

I don't mind Zevia. I bought some Zevia root beer for my storm preparations. (I wasn't so much for making sense during my storm preparations. Also bought candy bars and brownie mix.)

Yesterday someone asked me if I can eat coconut.

I keep ending up with a packet or two of those instant smoothie mixes (such as Amazing Meal). I always get my hopes up and then they are gross. Why?!

I clearly haven't woke up yet because I just thought OMG ARE THEY?! I really am appalled at how naive I can be sometimes.

i was super anal about making sure i was all set for the pets. i set up an evacuation cage for the guinea pigs, got out a bag of pellets and stuff a bag full of extra fleece and towels for them if we had to leave (which was highly unlikely based on where we live). for the dogs i got them together an evacuation bag of stuff and we bought an extra bag of kibble "just in case"

for the humans i made pie, we bought chips and dip, and frozen pizza cause you know when you have no electricity frozen pizza is totally useful.

i think we finished the chips and dip long before the power went out.

Today's peeve: certain other members of the household used up the soymilk and I had to drink my coffee with just agave. Who uses the LAST of the soymilk for cereal? Eat your cereal dry, motherforker.

This. Sugar is a flavor enhancer, stevia makes things taste like stevia.
