Lately, I’ve been trying to focus more on buying local and/or organic products from small farms and dairies. I’m not usually a big fan of milk, though I do love cheese. Yay, cheese. Anyway, a week or two ago I was at my local Bristol Farms and found some tasty looking eggnog in a nice glass bottle in the cooler. It looked so good that it caused me to have uncharacteristic holiday spirit, which was doubled when I rounded the corner to find some very good rum on sale for $9.99. I got home and tried some, and it was literally the best eggnog I have ever tasted, even before I added the rum! Intrigued, I decided to find out more about the dairy.
Broguiere’s has been in Montebello since Ernest Broguiere founded it in 1920. They still bottle all their milk (and apparently, their seasonal eggnog) in glass bottles. Their chocolate milk is hand-stirred and made with chocolate syrup and a little cream. Their nonfat milk is recommended in tasty recipes. And I was so motivated by the flavorful goodness of the eggnog that I decided I’d have to try their milk, even though I’m not usually a big milk drinker. I snagged some 2% at the store tonight, and… holy mother of jeebus, that is some good. freakin. milk. And bonus, I’m supporting local business! Hooray.
I haven’t been able to locate a website for them, but their products are available at Bristol Farms. Alternately, you can call them at 323-726-0524 and ask them where to get their tasty products.
