Why can't I find this anywhere? I need this product.

I bought mine at Target. They don't put it with the other nut milks, though. They put it next to the other cartons of latte beverages (usually to the left of the milk). Also, it's $3.99 there- almost a dollar cheaper than at Hannaford.

Ah ok. I'll check around in Wegmans then. I've only looked in the natural foods case.

They put in the natural food section at Hannaford but for some reason Target has it with the other iced latte cartons. I thought that was kind of weird but maybe it'll get more exposure there to people who might otherwise skip over soy milk.

They did that a Meijer too, put it next to the dairy latte drinks. But they keep all of the cold milks together so it's still right next to the soy milk. And then after selling it for two weeks, they removed it AND the dairy latte. What the fizz.

I keep seeing it, it is roughly $3.99 here. I have yet to buy it for the boyfriend who used to dig those bottled StarBucks drinks...If there was a decaf version I would buy it for myself to try out...

I just tried the vanilla one. . . found it for $2.50 at the discount grocery store. It tastes pretty much exactly like I expected it to: sweet, vanilla-flavored mediocre coffee. In other words, delicious (to me). I also poured it onto my cereal because I didn't have any other milks handy at the time. I need to do this more often, because it was awesome. I mean, the cereals I eat are all sickeningly sweet anyway; I don't think it would be as good on neutral-flavored cereals.

I just want to know if Y.K.T. has any containers left!

So, this reminds me of my uncle (a Croatian Swede...). When we were in Croatia, I noticed how he ate his breakfast. He basically cubed up bread, put it in a bowl and poured milky coffee over it. Ate it with a spoon.

My stinking kids thought it was chocolate silk and drank half of it before I got any. They loved it. I thought it was ok. I think I expected it to be creamier. It would make a good milk shake I bet! It's the mocha one.

I also found it on clearance at Ralphs (CA) for $2.50, while I did some shopping right before a planned trip to Starbucks. I was excited to think I'd have several iced coffees for less than the price of one Sbux venti iced soy latte... but I've been pretty disappointed. The Silk eggnog was SO yummy (used it as coffee creamer), so I had high expectations - but this was just meh: not horrible, but not good, and WAY too sweet.

I've nearly finished it off, however, by blending it with lots of ice and equal parts unsweetened almond milk for my own frappuccino-esque drink.

Post subject:  Re: Silk iced latte

Yeah, I had to cut mine with extra coffee to make it drinkable because it's so sweet.

I figured out what it tastes like, though--YOOHOO.

But I never liked Yoohoo, so I'm not terribly surprised that I didn't like this. Agreed that it's a bummer, because I love Silk Nog!

This stuff doesn't really taste like coffee to me. It's kind of sickly sweet. I use a splash in regular coffee as a creamer and it's alright. Probably won't buy it again.

Post subject:  Re: Silk iced latte

i use it as creamer too - the boyfriend likes it strait on.

I love the mocha one! I think it tastes exactly like those Starbucks Frappucinos in bottles that I got at gas stations when I was 14 and I thought they made me super kewl.

I love the mocha one too but I probably won't get it again because it's 100 calories per 8-oz serving, I could easily drink three servings at once, and I try not to "drink my calories." Plus I am trying to learn to like unsweetened coffee. Day Three and surviving!

My mom just bought a carton for me. I've been looking everywhere, but she found it at, of all places, the crappy Food Lion across the street that doesn't even sell tofu!

I haven't tried it yet, but the sugar content isn't too bad: 18g for 8 oz of the mocha flavor. That's a lot lower than most non-diet sweetened beverages. I'll try some over lots of ice when I go to work tonight. If its too sweet, I'll add some quinoa-hazelnut milk.

I bought the Silk Latte both flavors and they were delicious on ice. My energy was boosted 10-fold. I drank coffee for 4 decades and always wanted to quit because it made me irritable and tired. Yessss...tired. Well I haven't touched coffee for 2 weeks now and I did not get the migraine headache that coffee addicts get when try to quit coffee. I have more energy than I had for years and I think the drink is delicious.

What is everyone's problem here? Silk latte is a healthy alternative for coffee addicts. Try it.

Post subject:  Re: Silk iced latte

Wait. What?





In other news, whenever I get the vanilla flavor I scream about how it's so awful that even my french techniques can't save it.

Post subject:  Re: Silk iced latte

Is it bad that I drank two whole containers of this in two days? I don't even like coffee. In my defense I was visiting home and had very little sleep.

Post subject:  Re: Silk iced latte

$4.99 at Food Lion and like $4.19 at the Commissary. I just keep leftover coffee from my morning brew and put it in a mason jar and add milk when I want iced coffee.

What I NEED, and they will not answer me on twitter even though they usually do, is this stuff in single servings at convenience stores.

oh, but yeah, the vanilla is chemically not so amazing.

If you live anywhere near a Kroger or Target, they run deals a lot and Silk is always putting out coupons! I blew my sister-in-laws mind by getting Silk almond milk at Target for .97 cents.

*scratches head* Um, they do contain coffee...so you haven't quit coffee. Coffee is the first ingredient.
