Anyone who knows me knows I love all things Christmas, not the least of which being eggnog, which I start abusing heavily around Halloween through to the New Year. So imagine my delight/suprise/horror to find that Target has introduced a new viscose diary-based holiday beverage to the season.
That's right, that glass of what appears to be a mixture of gazpacho and Pepto-Bismol is actual Target's Red Velvet Chocolate Milk, AKA "holiday milk"
So how does it taste? I have to give Target credit, this is pretty much what you would imagine a drinkable red velvet cake would taste like. But it does beg a couple a questions...Why would you want to drink a red velvet cake? And since when is red velvet cake a holiday thing? It's not like fruit cake or gingerbread men, people eat red velvet cake all year round. I've never associated it with Christmas before.
All in all an interesting diversion but a nog-killer it is not.
