New Silk soy milk "seasonal" flavor - chocolate mint!!!

post #1 of 65
Thread Starter 
So the seasonal flavors of Silk soy milk are back. At Whole Foods yesterday, I saw the pumpkin spice and nog flavors that they have every year, but also one new one - chocolate mint! After buying and trying it, I just have to say that I need to stock up on this stuff, so it'll last me a few months.

Oddly, the nutritional content is very different than other Silk flavors. The serving size is the same (1 cup), but there's only 3 grams of protein, as opposed to 6-8 for other flavors, and only 90 calories, as opposed to 130-140 for other flavors. I haven't looked through all the fortified vitamins and minerals to see how they compare, but they looked fairly complete at first glance. Thus, this stuff may actually be my solution to desert while trying to lose weight.

mmm sounds good (nutirtion be damned!). I like the nog flavor and thats what we have for the holidays (bring on the nutmeg!!). I'll hafta see if the stores I shop have this one.

That sounds sooo good. Vitasoy used to make a peppermint chocolate that I loved but I think they discontinued it. I'm anxious to try the Silk one now! I saw the Nog in the grocery store the other day but that was it. I hope they get the chocolate mint one in around here.

That's interesting about the nutritional content. The serving size is different also. The nog and pumpkin state 1/2 cup = one serving (although the original non seasonal flavors are 1 cup).

There sure is and it's a billion times better than regular nasty dairy eggnog.

ETA: If you go to Silk's website you can print off a 75 cents off coupon.

Yes it is. SO much better.Not all sticky, sickeningly sweet like regular. Thanks for the coupon tip. I can't wait to try the chocolate mint.

I'll have to look for it at Safeway (as much as I hate shopping there).

The store has finally started stocking the seasonal soy flavors. The chocolate mint was okay but I'm currently in love with the pumpkin spice.

I assume that these are not organic?

The chocolate mint sounds good, but it will be hard not to get my favorite....pumpkin spice. It's expensive here, so I doubt I'll be able to get both.

Hmmm....decisions, decisions.

Just checked the package for the mint chocolate (don't have the other seasonal flavors). It doesn't have the word organic on it anywhere, but it does specifically say non-GMO, which is very important for soy beans.

Awww the chocolate mint sounds awesome! I was at Whole Foods here Saturday and was so dissapointed they didnt have any seasonal ones yet. Must be soon though!
post #16 of 65
Yes I got an email about this a few weeks ago. I am going to check my store in a few weeks when food stamps comes in and stock up on this stuff if my stores has it. I might have to drive to the biggest town to get some.

So have the most of you still not seen this in stores yet? I finished the first carton and went back for more. My biggest complaint about it is that it only comes in the small carton size. I'm thinking this one would be worthy of a gallon jug.

Doesn't the actual eggnog comes in that size also? Anyhow, I just have to go locate this next time we shop.

Yes, it's the same carton size as the nog and pumpkin spice flavors. I like it enough that I'd buy larger cartons if they made them. Those tend to be cheaper, too, compared to buy multiple smaller cartons to get the same total quantity of soy milk.

One of my stores finally got it in but I didn't pick it up because I didn't have my coupon with me at the time but plan on picking it up today. I agree that they should come in bigger cartons. It really sucks that they are more expensive than the bigger ones
post #23 of 65
I am wondering when Thanksgiving and Christmas comes about they will make them bigger whom knows, maybe if enough people asks for bigger maybe they will get bigger. I will go to the store in two weeks from today to see if our stores has them.

Those seasonal flavors have only come in the smaller packaging in the past, so I doubt if they'll change it this year, if they've already put out only the smaller containers. If enough people request it, maybe they'll do that in future years, though.

I don't think I've ever tried the nog. I've also never tried "real" nog, so I have no idea what to expect there. I tried the pumpkin spice last year, and I wasn't overly impressed. It's ok, but nothing special. I don't think I'd buy it again.

You should try it out. It's really good. I hardly ever drank real nog but love the silk one. I'll send them an email requesting bigger cartons especially since you get such few servings out of it. Sure some of them say 1/2 cup is a serving but I never drink just half a cup.

I'ma be all over that stuff when I get my tofurkey next week.

I found the chocolate mint at the 99 cent store once! I bought every single carton. I gave some away and drank a ton.
