Hiland Dairy, Springfield, Mo., added a new Custard holiday flavor to its line of flavored milks, available while supplies last.

So, what is Custard? Hiland Dairy said Custard is a seasonal favorite at its locations in the mid-South. It is made from fresh milk, eggs and sugar. The ingredients are combined and slowly heated until thickened, and then chilled and packaged. The company said it’s often told that Custard tastes like melted ice cream.

What makes Custard different from Eggnog? Eggnog is made with rich cream, eggs and nutmeg, the company said.

A 1/2-cup serving of Custard has 180 calories, 9 grams of fat, 20 grams of sugar (15 added) and 4 grams of protein.

Both Hiland Dairy Custard and Eggnog are available at stores in Arkansas, Iowa, Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska, Oklahoma and Texas, as well as on the borders of surrounding states. The suggested retail price is $2.79 per quart container.
