SPRINGFIELD, Mo.,— Hiland Dairy Foods Company, a leading farmer-owned dairy producer, is pleased to announce a new holiday flavor, Custard has launched and available where most Hiland products are available.
Custard is new to the Hiland Dairy holiday lineup this year. So, what is custard? Hiland Dairy Custard is a seasonal favorite at our locations in the mid-south. It is made from fresh Hiland milk, eggs and sugar. The ingredients are combined and slowly heated until thickened and then chilled and packaged.
What makes Custard different from Hiland Dairy Eggnog? Eggnog is made with rich Hiland Dairy cream, eggs and nutmeg. We’re often told that custard tastes like melted ice cream.
According to Rick Beaman, vice president, Hiland Dairy, “We are excited to bring this holiday favorite to all of our markets. And we’re willing to bet that fans of both our eggnog and the custard will disagree as to which is the best, so we are launching a fun consumer contest during December on our Facebook page to let the votes determine the favorite.”
Both Hiland Dairy Eggnog and Hiland Dairy Custard are now available at most locations where Hiland Dairy products are sold. The suggested retail price is $2.79.
