Silky like Milky

So I walk into Kroger this morning to get some bananaanananas and I pass a display of Kashi - 2 boxes of GoLean Crunch for $5.00, plus a coupon for a free half-gallon of Silk Soy Milk. Intriguing... I'm not a big fan of soy milk - milk comes from cows, not beans. But for $5.00, what the heck, I eat a box of GoLean a week, so I went for it and I picked up the vanilla flavor Silk, along with 4 bananananananas.

Once I got to work I made myself a bowl of the Kashi and splashed the Silk over it. I looked at the color - it was kinda yellowish, like a pale butter. Not good; I like my milk to be white unless it's chocolate. I tentatively sampled it, and it wasn't bad. A different texture than I'm used to, but the flavor wasn't bad. I polished off the bowl and had a banananananana and now I'm full.

It's decent. The first time I had Soy Milk I almost couldn't go through with it.

I don't really mind it now...however I am getting ready to venture into some Raw Milk soon and I'll have to let you know how that goes...I'm kind of scared.

I definitely like the taste of soy milk more than cow milk. Vanilla is particularly nice in cereal and hot chocolate.

P.S. There is a pretty big variance in the taste and texture of different soy milk brands. A lot of people get accustomed to the first one they try and then everything else tastes "weird" to them. Brett and I usually get Soy Dream. Rice milk is a whole 'nother bag of milk-alternatives. It's a bit sweeter and thinner, usually. I'd normally go for soy, but rice is worth a try.

Also, Brett wants to remind you that you have to shake any soy milk vigorously before pouring!
