I think the Silk yogurt is too sweet and way too small. WholeSoy is only temporarily back -- they posted a lengthy explanation on their Facebook page giving all of the details of what's been going on and that they are having to temporarily stop again to upgrade some equipment to keep up with demand. So you better get it while you can -- I intend to try this weekend and hope that WF has some unsweetened plain.

I'm okay with the coconut yogurt, and I can get it at JayC for $1.09 (yeah I know, crazy cheap) but I wish it had more protein.

I don't mind the silk soy flavors. Doesn't seem any sweeter than the old ones, BUT i REALLY miss their big tubs of vanilla and plain. I wish Whole Soy came in 32 oz tubs. We have SO MANY vegan things now. Why is soy yogurt the hardest thing to get? Why can I get vegan andouille sausage easier than freaking yogurt. sigh.

I think of plain as a different culinary entity than vanilla or fruit yogurts. There just isn't a good substitute short of making my own.

I've only ever really had access to one vegan yogurt here and like hell will I pay $2 for coconut yogurt.

We only buy unsweetened plain. I add frozen berries to it, sometimes cinnamon. And make my only little fruit/yogurt cups.

I just think the new Silk soy yogurts are waaaaaay too sweet. I like very sweet things, but not my yogurt. Also i'm mad that they just replaced the old flavors, I loved key lime and black cherry and I could get the big tubs of vanilla and plain at a lot of grocery stores.

I can actually get the So Delicious yogurt at one of the Krogers here, and it's not too expensive, like $1.20? Only plain, vanilla, and blueberry but I like them all. I just eat so much yogurt that I want my variety back, dammit.

I think the new Silk yogurts kind of suck. I agree that they're too sweet, and the almond ones at least have a weird, gloppy texture.

No other yogurt compares to Whole Soy unsweetened!

Has anyone else seen the Almond Dream yogurts? I found some in Cincinnati, and they were really tasty without being overly sweet.

That is so ridiculous! But it's great that you are there to be an ally and correct people when they make stupid assumptions!

True this! There's a kid at my daycare who's pescetarian (I know, fewer restrictions than veganism, but still) and it isn't a big deal. Ditto for a kid with a number of severe food allergies. Sometimes people ask them why they have a different snack, but they aren't suffering socially from it. I'm kind of sick of adults using "But that poor kid will be made fun of for being different--better not allow him to be different!" as an argument instead of trying to create environments where being different is okay.

I love that stuff, the only place i've found it as at the very big, fancy health food store where Brian's sister lives, and everything there is about 25% more than the HFS in my hometown. But I will still sweep the shelf if they actually have any in stock.

Unfortunately, I have experienced many peeves this long, long long week. Including ignorant coworkers and eating nothing but a bag of chips one day.

But the stupidest was a very posh restaurant I had lunch at, that had a farro risotto on the menu labeled as vegan and gluten free.

It had cheese and soy sauce in it. It even said: with Parmesan cheese, right next to the vegan symbol. What the huh? Who made that menu?

I just got it without cheese. But what if i was GF (or anyone else that orders that) and got sick? It was the only gluten free item on the menu too.

Stupid restaurants jumping on the food fad bandwagon without doing any kind of research. Considering my tiny-ass plate of farro and veggies was $30, you would think they would pay a little more attention to details.

The risotto was ok btw. Not great, but ok.

Precisely! As a teacher I'd rather help children learn to be more accepting and tolerant of differences than train them to blend into the crowd at all costs.

This probably belongs in the playground, but I recently bought Todd Parr's "The Family Book" as part of a bunch of book acquisitions aimed at teaching her to accept differences, inspired by the talking to your kids about race thread.

One of the things I really like about it are the pages where they say "some families eat the same things" (cattle grazing in a field, I think) and "some families eat different things" on the next page, showing a cat, a dog, and a rabbit together eating omnivorous and veggie stuff. A little anthropomorphized, but his books seem wonderful (we also have the 'it's ok to be different' one) and I like that it gives vegan parents a way to express that it's OK if some people in the family eat differently than others, and presumably from the community around them. I liked it a lot, and I know many of us are in families where we're raising vegan kids alongside omni (or in my case, O-L veg) coparents.

Thank you! We have a few of his books but not that particular one. I'll pick it up!
Now if I can just get the other teachers to stop insisting he's being 'forced' into veganism...

That is such a dumb argument. Kids are pretty much forced into eating whatever parents provide, be it hot dogs or tofu burgers. I bet those parents are the first ones to get upset when their kids doesn't want to eat x, y, or z because they don't like it or have textural issues.

I can think of some adults that might benefit from these books.

Oh man, so relieved to find out I wasn't going crazy over the disappearance of WholeSoy. It changed on the shelves overnight, it was so freaky. But I'm more sad, I suppose... because I figured it was just the place I was at, and that I could get it elsewhere... Sad.

Whole Foods in Tribeca has WholeSoy, small containers, in vanilla and strawberry. They also have Almond Dream, which is pretty good, and large tubs of Nancy's. Is that the scary Canadian yogurt?
