Has anyone tried this yet? It's a new almond milk made by Silk. I haven't seen it yet but I'm curious how it compares to Almond Breeze.

I tried it and loved it. I was sad that my normal grocery store didn't carry it when I looked for it today. I haven't had almond breeze, so I can't make a direct comparison, but I thought it was pretty great, especially in coffee.

I was actually on the consumer review panel for the product during its testing phase....so I may be a little biased....but I think it's good. You should try it...can't hurt to try things out at least once, right?

Almond Breeze is delicious. I love the unsweetened chocolate. It's great for cereal, tea, coffee, hot chocolate and just drinking by the glass.

Wow that's really cool that you were on the consumer review panel for it! I will definetly pick it up once I find it. According to the site one of my local grocery stores carries it but I was in there last week and they didn't have it yet. I will be checking back though. I like Silk and almond milk so I'll probably like this too.

The obvious question has to be asked - how did you get yourself onto this panel, and where can I sign up (and/or con my way in) in the future?

Unsweetened Almond Breeze is my milk of choice. I have to scope this one out too... I second Semicharmed's question. I loves me some veggie samples.

I've seen this at my local grocery store and I was 2 seconds away from buying it but I remembered how the shelf stable version of almond breeze tasted and I picked up soy milk instead. But next time I go shopping I will try this out.

Almond Breeze has a version in the refrigerated section of some stores as well now.

The refrigerated version tastes a hundred times better to me than the shelf stable version. I haven't seen the silk one yet.

I got Almond Breeze this week, and now after having both I can say that I prefer the Almond Breeze to the Silk, but there isn't a HUGE difference in my humble opinion. If you like one, you'll probably like the other.

I had both, and like Almond Breeze better. Silk almond was good, but I thought sweeter, and more of an almond flavor.

Good thing I like Breeze better, BJ's wholesale club just started carrying it.

I bought Almond Breeze and nearly had to spit it out. It was disgusting. It wasn't the almond taste, because I love almonds. At first, I was like 'hey this tastes good', then 5 seconds later it has this TERRIBLE taste. I want to try Silk's though, it may be better!

I think Silk's Almond Milk is thicker and tastes more like home-made almond milk, with sugar added, whereas Almond Breeze seems a bit watered down to me. The Silk version, here, is 70 cents cheaper per carton and that's enough for me.

Bought the Silk almond milk today because it was on sale with an introductory price so I chose it over regular soy milk . Won't happen again. It tastes disgusting. I kinda dig the thicker mouthfeel but it has a real disgusting taste to it. I'm not the biggest fan of almonds but I like them, and this tastes almondy but that wasn't the problem. Just did not dig the taste at all. Now I've gotta figure out what to do with the rest of the carton minus the glass I forced down with my banana bread.

I finally got to try it and I got it for only $1.05 because I had coupons. Gotta say while I love Almond Breeze, I find Silk so much better. It's so much thicker and almondy. Unfortunately it's too expensive to buy on a regular basis (unless I have more coupons) so I'll be buying the Almond Breeze instead plus there's no chocolate almond Silk.

Its absolutely delicious and it was cheaper than the almond breeze when I went shopping (which I normally buy) so I bought that instead because I had a dollar off cupon!

I've avoided buying Silk products ever since Dean's bought them out.

Oh my god, gag, gag, gag! We bought Silk "Pure Almond" today, and it was REVOLTING. We make almond milk every 3 days or so (ok, I make the almond milk, everyone else just drinks it), and we enjoy it immensely, so I wondered... Silk makes some pretty good milk alternatives--I mean their soy milk does not taste like soy milk--it's just a good alternative and it's great with cereal. I haven't had fresh Almond Breeze before, but I can't imagine it's worse than Silk Pure Almond. It tastes like artificial roasted almond flavor, and has a thick oil like consistency which is NOT normal for almond milk--they clearly added an excessive amount of carrageenan or some other thickening agent. I'm sorry, but it is revolting. I'm actually filling out a form to get a refund right now I really wanted to like it too.

That's pretty cool. We didn't have that coupon in our papers but I like Silk's better than Almond Breeze now anyways.

Actually there is a difference, when it comes to ingrediants. Silk PureAlmond has NO SOY of any kind. It is SOY FREE, which is great for those who cannot eat SOY PRODUCTS of any kind. So, I am thankful for that. Also, I appreciate the Low Carb Count too. It is only 8 carb for 8oz/1cup glass of milk, with the one fiber it brings the carbs down to 7 carbs for 8oz/1cup of milk. I know it is better to make you own almond milk from raw almond, but this will be a nice short cut for baking and save some time. Thank you Silk for thinking about those who cannot have SOY. I use to use another brand, until it slipped in Soy Letchin into the ingrediants list. So, I hope Silk will NEVER that!

I like the Silk Almond Vanilla. I like Almond Breeze better but usually buy the Silk version out of accessibility. All the grocery stores around here carry it.
