Limited Edition Nips Egg Nog

Egg Nog NipsNestle makes a wide variety of their Nips, which are known best for the Coffee Nips variety.

Their Limited Edition Egg Nog Nips variety caught me by surprise, mostly because I didn’t know they made seasonal versions.

The box is the same format and size as the standard Coffee Nips. It holds 4 ounces and sells for a little over a buck at grocery and drug store chains. I felt like the box could have held another ounce or two, but you know that whole “settling may occur during transit” may come into play. Each piece is individually wrapped, and the whole box is also sealed in a clear cellophane wrapper to protect the contents.

Egg Nog Nips

The pieces are large and nicely domed. They don’t smell like much, so it wasn’t until I popped one in my mouth that I got a sense of what was different.

They’re sweet and smooth with a slow and satisfying dissolve. The creamy flavor has a strong milky flavor mixed with notes of nutmeg and a touch of clove and cinnamon plus vanilla. The custardy candy is pleasant and isn’t too cloying. I might have preferred a little stronger kick of spice to it, as it is it’s not that different from the Butter Rum Nips. (Though a hint of rum might be nice, too.)

A gingerbread version probably isn’t that far behind.

Made on equipment that also processes peanuts. Gluten free. Contains dairy, soy and coconut.

  1. Gingerbread is a good idea!
    I bought these along with Pumpkin Spice last year at Walgreen’s in MI.

  2. I bought these and the pumpkin spice nips last year as well, and I really liked them. The pumpkin spice ones were my favorite. But if you value your life, do not stand between me and a box of coffee nips. :D

  5. I picked up a few of these at the local “Dollar” store. Now I have to hide them from my family or risk having to share.

  6. Dollar store!  Thank you - I’ll check.  I’m a big Nip fan, of all flavors and these were good last year.

  7. Can’t find these anywhere in the Bay City/Midland area. And last year I bought tons of the Pumpkin Spice AFTER Christmas! Must have been bought up by Candy Blog readers.
