CHELSEA, Mass., Oct. 30 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, one of New England's favorite holiday traditions just got even tastier. HP Hood, New England's leading dairy products company, will spice up the season with the introduction of two delicious new flavors of its holiday staple: Cinnamon EggNog and Pumpkin EggNog.

"Consumers have told us that they're always looking for new ideas for entertaining during the holidays. We've responded by bringing fun, festive flavors to our EggNog line this year," said Barry Boehme, Vice President of Marketing for Hood. "In addition to our other eggnog offerings, Cinnamon EggNog and Pumpkin EggNog give consumers more great options for cooking and baking." Whether served by the glass or incorporated into family-friendly recipes, Hood EggNog has been a staple in homes across New England for more than 50 years. Hood's beloved recipe blends extra creamy milk with sugared egg yolks, cane sugar and a unique combination of nutmeg and rum flavoring to make only the highest-quality eggnog beverage. In addition to its two new Cinnamon and Pumpkin flavors, Hood offers a variety of eggnog products for every taste and lifestyle: rich and creamy Golden EggNog; Vanilla EggNog, with pure vanilla extract; Light EggNog, providing all the great taste of Hood EggNog with less fat; and No Sugar Added, EggNog Flavored Fat Free Milk, using nonfat milk to meet the needs of health-conscious consumers. All Hood EggNog products and flavors will be available at most grocery retailers throughout New England from the first week of November until January 2007. For those who want to enjoy eggnog after the holiday season, Hood EggNog can be frozen for up to six months. Consumers who take pride in their baking can enter their home-grown recipes using Hood holiday products into the company's second annual Holiday Recipe Contest, where the winning entry will receive a grand prize of a two-night, three-day vacation package to The Balsams Resort in the White Mountains of New Hampshire.
