Gingerbread and Egg Nog in Calgary

loopieelf | Dec 13, 2011 04:46 PM

As a recent transplant to Calgary from Toronto, I am having a hard time finding two of my favourite Christmas indulgences.
Firstly, I always bought my gingerbread cookies as baking them is a chore that I couldn't be bothered with. The gingerbread that I got in Toronto from Mad Batter Bakers were in MHO the best I had found. Nice and soft with a delicious all over icing. So my question for this is: can anyone direct me to somewhere that might win me over?
Secondly, my egg nog woe. LCBO was my only choice of liquor shopping as anyone from Ontario would know. Shopping for boozie drinks here is a whole different ballgame. Not everywhere stocks the same items and if you ask, they sometimes don't know what you are talking about. Old Tom's Original Egg Nog or Evan Williams Eggnog was delicious to sip on a cold winters eve while wrapping Christmas presents or doing the bit of baking that I did do. So again: does anyone know where I can get this?
