REVIEW: Chestnuts & Good Cheer Holiday Kitchen Returns with Firenog for the 2022 EPCOT International Festival of the Holidays

The smell of roasting chestnuts is arguably one of the most iconic scents of the holiday season, so it seems reasonable that available during the 2022 EPCOT International Festival of the Holidays, there’s an entire marketplace dedicated to cinnamon and roasted nuts.

We’ve never had roasted chestnuts before and we probably won’t again.

They were salty, mushy inside, and had an unpleasant earthy flavor. It wasn’t a great experience.

Hot Cocoa (Non-Alcoholic) – $3.75

T.G. Lee Eggnog (Non-Alcoholic) – $4.00

This is just basic eggnog you could get in your average grocery store this time of year. It’s nothing terribly special.

Ivanhoe Park Brewing Co. Hazel Nutty-Cracker Sweet Stout, Orlando, FL (11.4% ABV) – $5.50 for 6 oz., $9.50 for 12 oz.

Despite the name, this is more akin to a chocolate stout than anything nutty. The hazelnut and cracker flavors are very subtle, almost undetectable.

It’s like a slightly heavier Guinness. If you enjoy stouts in general this is a basic offering which won’t disappoint, but there’s nothing unique here.

Hot Cocoa with Skrewball Peanut Butter Whiskey ($25/bottle), Whipped Cream and Candied Nuts – $11.50

The cocoa is rich and creamy. While it is peanut butter whiskey, the chocolate seems to overpower that flavor. You can definitely tell there is whiskey in it though as it is quite strong.

This is simple but great.

The peanut butter whiskey and eggnog together is a pleasant, milky diversion from the other drinks.

Firenog: T.G. Lee Eggnog with Fireball Cinnamon Whisky – $11.50

Drinking this, the alcohol hits you almost immediately. The eggnog is smooth and creamy, but it warms up fast with the Florida weather.

The fireball pairs well with the spice of the eggnog, but on a warm day, this can be a little heavy.

Overall, this is a good beverage, especially if you like Fireball. Just maybe save it for the cooler evenings to come.
