Product Review: Silk Nog

Last year, I tried So Delicious coconut nog, and I really enjoyed it.  This year I decided to try Silk seasonal nog, soymilk's tribute to egg nog.

Perhaps still prejudiced by the 1970s hysteria about soy being a virtual communist plot, I was hesitant.  I do drink soymilk every morning in my smoothies, I eat veggie burgers and veggie sausage with soy, Cool Whip and it's not as though I'm soy phobic.

Yet every time I try a new soy product, I experience an irrational..."Ewww, this is unnatural!"  (Really?  Drinking eggs and cream is not more natural than a liquid made from plants, right?)  Knowing that's irrational, I proceed.

As I mentioned, I tried the flavor known as seasonal nog.  Another flavor, chocolate mint, is also available.

Once again, I'm really happy I did.  It does not taste like soymilk.  It tastes exactly like "regular" egg nog and has a texture most similar to Byrne Dairy's light egg nog.

Had I realized Silk nog offered a money back guarantee if I didn't like it, I would have been enjoying it for years. 

Verdict:   mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm!
