Is everyone already full of holiday cheer? After Jenn Wohletz unwrapped her five worst X-mas foods -- including everything from date nut balls to popcorn tins -- defenders of Royal Dansk rose up in defense of the Danish cookies. And even eggnog got a pass from some readers. See also:Five worst x-mas foods -- knock off the eggnog!

Says tropicalchrome1:

No such thing as too much cream. This is what allows eggnog to absorb insane amounts of bourbon so you can look seasonally festive while getting sloshed. If you're too full before the alcohol takes effect, you haven't added enough.

And eggnog is the perfect way to consume the bottles of cheap bourbon (rum, etc.) that you wouldn't dare drink straight lest you dissolve your taste buds and stomach lining that were gifts from well-meaning friends and relatives who have no taste in liquor whatsoever. Or at least serve it to your guests.

. Hmmm... dipping a Royal Dansk cookie in bourbon-saturated eggnog could be quite the holiday treat. What other foods are you looking forward to?

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
