I've tried it, but it was an ingredient in stuff (biscuits and mac 'n cheese). Both things I made with it turned out well, but I didn't taste the cashew milk on its own yet.

It is my new favorite milk. I just wish it was more readily available. In NYC the only place I've seen it at Target. I can find it more easily upstate.

I tried it when I could not find my regular brand anywhere and wanted hot chocolate so bad. I thought it was pretty good. Slightly thick and sweet. I would buy it again in a pinch. Was shocked to find this in the cold section at my local grocery store. They rarely carry a variety of "soy/nut" milks.

I tried it in hot chocolate too - it made for a very decadent drink! I have to think of some interesting things to make with the rest.

I don't know if I'd like the sweetness of it, but it sounds perfect for certain things.

I saw it at Target today and wanted it, but sadly I was work-bound and didn't want to hog the entire fridge. Siiigh.

I don't really care for almond milk, but I love this... Delicious! Some of my non-vegan friends really like it, too, which is a definite bonus.

The last time I bought Silk Cashew Milk, I got the last container. Maybe they were almost sold out d/t the new/novelty factor, but I'd like to think people also really like it.

It's very exciting to me that the non-traditional milk section is almost as big as the cow's milk section in the grocery store. We're definitely making progress, people!

I like it but don't love it. It makes for nice hot cocoa (cocoa accounts for approximately ninety percent of my milk usage) but I imagine it would be excellent sipped straight from a bowl after eating some sweet cereal, like cinnamon Puffins or somesuch.

I got it because it was on sale plus I had a coupon (so the big container was $2.25). It tastes like almond butter, which makes sense because one of the ingredients is almond butter. I like almond butter. It's just a little weird.

I picked up a carton of the unsweetened one yesterday. It's good! And thankfully doesn't have the marshmallow taste that the unsweetened Silk soy milk does, so it'll work in savory stuff. I've been having a hard time finding unsweetened, fortified soy milk lately and I think this will make a good sub. Very creamy.

It's the creamiest nut milk I've had. I have the Original though, and it's extremely sweet. I would worry about using it in non-dessert recipes.

I'm getting kind of tired of almond milk because I've gotten the point where I can identify it as an ingredient in foods. I'll notice when a mac and cheese tastes distinctively like almonds. Maybe a few years of drinking cashew milk and I'll start to feel the same way about cashews, then can switch back to almond.

i bought a carton the other week, unsweetened. its good.

i imagine the Original is too sweet. i bought some Silk Almond milk creamer at the same time, not realizing that it was vanilla flavored (or whatever its called) and it was insanely sweet. i found it really sickly sweet, gross.

I bought some from Walmart! I don't want my almond-milk-lovin' roomie to steal any before I'm drinking non-water again, so I labeled it to not open until 4/5/15. Fingers crosses that works? It looks good!

They sell it at Target too for considerably less than what I paid at my regular grocery store. Next time!

I got the unsweetened and I like it. Straight it tastes like almond butter and is good, but I think I still like almond milk better. I liked it in my coffee as it's nice and creamy, but Whole Foods brand almond milk is still my favorite for that (it's much thicker and creamier than most almond milks).

Ingredient list isn't bad and I like it overall though!

I got the unsweetened as well. So far I've only had it straight (creamy with a slightly roasted cashew after-taste), with chocolate granola, and mixed in with tea. I'm normally team almond breeze unsweetened, but though it plays well in everything else- I have yet to have a success with putting it in tea. It always ruins it. This cashew milk performs much better in that regard, though I prefer almond in almost every other case... so far. I have a whole carton to experiment with though so we shall see! I'm just glad it wasn't insanely bitter like the non-refrigerated random one I tried at Whole Foods once upon a time.

Miracle of miracles, it really doesn't curdle in tea! I've tried it in Irish breakfast tea and three different brands of Earl Grey and each time it was a success. I'm being a bit dramatic, but this is a huge relief. For years, the inability to make a good cup of milky tea has been my one gripe about being vegan.

Ooh, I am excited for the tea prospects. I find that soy doesn't curdle in my tea unless I reheat with the soy already in it, but it'd be nice to have some variety!

I wish they didn't load it up with almond butter and so many gums. I imagine cashew milk is super creamy on its own without all that stuff, but with it it's just too much in my opinion. I like almond and soy milk better.

I've only made cashew milk with raw cashews and it wasn't very good. I did it the usual way -- soaked nuts, water, a couple of dates and a pinch of salt -- and it tasted almost smoky. The texture was good, though. It was creamy, but not over-the-top goopy like Silk. It would probably taste a lot better with roasted cashews.

To me, the Silk tastes more like the emergency almond milk you make by putting almond butter and water in the blender when you're mid-recipe and realize you're out of everything else. I would probably drink it straight, but I just find it too viscous on its own. I'm going to look for the chocolate tomorrow. I bet it would make a good mocha.

It's really grown on me. Might like it better than Whole Food's almond milk at this point. Really perfect in coffee.
