Maola Local Dairies Named 2020 Winner of Quality Chekd Nog Off Award

RESTON, Va. – March 2, 2021 — Maola Local Dairies is proud to have received the Nog Off Award from Quality Chekd Dairies, Inc. The award recognizes the best eggnog for overall quality.

The scoring was based on consumer preference by the staff of the Merieux Lab, where composite scores were based on body, appearance, and flavor.

“Maola Eggnog has been a seasonal favorite for our customers for decades and we are glad the judges agreed,” said Todd Aarons, Executive Vice President of Operations at Maryland & Virginia Milk Producers Cooperative.
