This is a Quebec brand, and I am absolutely in love with the cappuccino, strawberry and chocolate varieties of Natur-A soy milk. I don't really love any of the more normal varieties, but since I only buy soy milk to cook with (unsweetened) or as a treat (flavoured!) and not to put in cereal or coffee or anything, I get pretty excited when I find the weird Natur-A varieties on sale.

What say you, Canadians? Have you tried these delicious beverages?

I have yet to try them despite having a buttload of coupons for said brand...I think I will give it a whirl.

It's the BEST! It's the least beany tasting soy milk I've ever tried. And the Strawberry is a lot less overwhelmingly sweet than other brands. Haven't had the cappuccino kind yet. The best part is that it doesn't come in a huge jug, since I don't drink all that much soy.

Try the cappuccino! I don't even like coffee and it's my fave.

I love this stuff - the strawberry flavour is my fav, but I haven't tried the cappuccino. Looks like I'm going to have to give it a go!

Natura was the brand of choice when I lived in Halifax.

Mmmm, Natura is my brand of choice for soy milk. We buy the plain stuff in packs of 6 at Costco, and I absolutely love the strawberry and chocolate flavours for a treat. It's the best tasting one out there, so creamy!

we love them too! we use unsweetened for cooking and in coffee, chocolate for drinking, and are fans of the strawberry flavour too! the cappacino flavour was a tad oily tasty to me, but still pretty nummy.

My guilty pleasure is the strawberry juicebox size. I know they are not eco-friendly but drinking out of a juice box just feels so impossibly cute. I can't help myself! I only do it when I'm on the road. Now I wish I had a road trip planned.

Mmmm, I love that stuff. I've only ever tried the plain unsweetened; I need to get my hands on some of that strawberry! It's the only brand of soymilk my husband likes, I just wish it came in bigger sizes.

They have a half-juice, half-soymilk line with an orange creamsicle flavour. I tried it at the Vegetarian Food Festival in Toronto. And, wow, it blew my mind! If you can find it, I highly recommend it!

That sounds totally disgusting but I'd try it!

Hahaha - I probably shouldn't go into soymilk marketing :)

It just reminded me of adding orange juice to soy milk in my cereal bowl once (that's what my English relatives always do!) because I'd ran out of milk. And the soy milk curdled. But I'm sure they've solved the curdling problem. :)

Orange juice on cereal! That sounds so... exotic to me.

Mmmm orange creamsicle soymilk sounds magical!!! One of my fave smoothies is just oranges & vanilla rice milk. So. Good.

My WF used to carry these. The strawberry was the shiitake, but I haven't seen them lately. :(

I had no idea they made it stateside. I missed the strawberry stuff so much when I was living in California. I hope you guys in the US close to Quebec get it back!

my grocery store will randomly carry products from other countries for a few months and then stop. it must just be some weird distribution thing. it's always really cheap when they do it, like they just got a bunch of product they didn't know what to do with. i loved that the strawberry stuff wasn't colored with carmine like the trader joes stuff.

I'm convinced the Natura's chocolate soymilk is the best chocolate soymilk I've ever had. As for the other flavours, I usually have a carton of unsweetened original in my cupboard or fridge.
