I bought this by the case last year, pretty much. I couldn't get enough of it. I tried the Silk Nog and it wasn't nearly as good...kind of blah in comparison.



So I go to the store the other day and I saw Silk Nog on the shelf. Where is the Pumpkin Spice, I ask. The department manager said she'd have to ask the Silk rep and let me know, only apparently the Silk rep has failed to reply.



I checked Silk's website and they list only the nog being available. That will truly ruin my holiday for me if they don't have the Pumpkin Spice Silk this year. That stuff was the BOMB. I even got regular milk drinkers into drinking it!

Hmmmm, never knew there was a pumpkin flavour one! I got my dad to drink the So nice soy version, it's actually really good. I'll have to keep my eyes peeled for the pumpkin one

I found it in Hannaford's for the first time just about a week ago. I was disappointed, though. It doesn't seem to be as thick/creamy as regular Silk.

That sounds great! My grocery only just got the Silk creamer so I won't be holding my breath for the Pumpkin Spice.

I've never had it, but it sounds yummy! I wonder if you could make something similar on your own--maybe some vanilla soymilk, a little pumpkin, and some pumpkin pie spice in the blender. It may not be exactly the same, but it may help with your craving

Glad to hear it's filtering out into stores. Hopefully I can get my grubby hands on some SOON. I NEED SOME NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!



So far the stores I called to get some in (stores that carried last year) haven't returned my calls. So I don't know what is up, if their Silk rep is dropping the ball or what.



And for those of you who say you can't get it, ask the store to special order it.

Imo, its better to make it at home...b/c the Silk brand doesnt have as much flavor. You can add your own amount when you do it at home.

Plus...its muuuuch cheaper!

and you ccan have it WHENEVER you want!

I've seen Silk Nog, but not Pumpkin Spice.

Yes, this was delicious! Even my omni boyfriend loves it so I will have to keep stock of it in the house. Make me happy he likes it, we can buy vegan items to enjoy the fall and christmas flavors rather then nasty real egg nog.



Actually he has started enjoying chocolate soy milk, my soy ice creams and the silk nogs and pumpkin harvest. Perhaps I will eventually turn him over slowly but surely?

I don't even had a Whole Foods!



boo hoo



Maybe New Frontiers will get some...fingers are crossed!





..if not, maybe some pumpkin pie spice in the vanilla silk might be ok.

My local Hy-Vee stores informed me that if they didn't preorder this in the summer, they cannot get it in. So special ordering it late in the game like this doesn't work, and I am afraid if some of you don't see it in your stores, you won't.



Silk's sales rep needs to make sure this gets into more stores, and offer taste tests too. I've had milk drinkers tell me they MUCH prefer this over the artificial flavored and color pumpkin flavored cow milk.

the albertsons in my town has both Silk Nog and the pumpkin spice variety. I got my roommate hooked on them both and chocolate soy milk.

Just wanted to say I tried this because of this thread, and holy crap, is it good! I've been drinking it straight and putting it in my morning steel cut oatmeal. Very tasty!



I found it at Whole foods in the Philadelphia area.

OMG, I almost forgot about that Silk Pumpkin Spice. I'm gonna have to look for it. I remember this was so good warmed up just slightly.

I haven't tried warming it up! I don't think between my fiance and I that the cup would make it to the microwave before it is gone. lol

I've warmed it up before its pretty good but for some reason I find that any type of soymilk I warm up tends to lessen the flavor a bit.



I'm waiting to find the vitasoy holly nog and chocolate peppermint soymilks. Those are delicious also.

Omni hubby was drinking the pumpkin Silk.....he said it was just as good as the real dairy pumpkin milk shake he had last week...that's high praise from him!
