Broguiere’s Eggnog on ‘Visiting with Huell Howser’

One of the most popular episodes of “Visiting” profiled Broguiere’s Dairy in Montebello. Huell discovered during his first trip there that they also made a delectable eggnog and the family invited him to come back during the holiday season. Huell ultimately returned and got a behind-the-scenes look at how the unique drink is made. Broguiere’s even makes special edition bottles in honor of their “favorite visitor,” Huell, which is still in circulation.
