Has anyone tried the Soy Creamer? How is it? Lately I've been looking for something to put in my coffee. I've tried just regular soymilk.. but it just seems too thin and kinda separates in the coffee.<br><br><br><br>
Any reviews?<br><br><br><br>

i think it's very good. i like it a lot. it has a fairly rich flavor and i have never had a problem with it curdling or seperating.

I like it, especially since it's thicker that regular soy milk. I've also found that it lasts a long time before going bad even after you open it.

I bought the French Vanilla creamer to have on hand for my omni in-laws, and they were impressed with it. In fact, they said that they liked it enough to buy it themselves. Score! Brownie points for me...<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/wink3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=";)">

I got some Silk Creamer and tried it for the first time this morning.<br><br><br><br>
The taste is fine. Not quite like half and half, but not all soy-ish, either. The mouth-feel is a bit more oily than half/half, to my surprise. I was also afraid it would be sweet (I hate sweetened hot coffee) but it wasn't.<br><br><br><br>
The only problem I had with it is that when I poured it in my coffee, all these white blobs floated to the top. Since I had just opened the container, and it didn't smell like it had gone off, I assumed it hadn't spoiled. Do y'all think the blobs are analogous to the milkfat blobs that sometimes form in cream? Vigorous stirring reduced them a bit, but there were still specks floating in my java. I took the approach of just not looking at them while I sipped.<br><br><br><br>
Does Silk Creamer normally have these blobs? I like it fine, otherwise, but I don't quite fancy stirring blobs in my morning cup each day. Since I feel disinclined to consume cow juice recently, I was hoping that Silk would become my coffee whitener of choice.

Maybe it happens with some batches, and not others? Maybe it has to do with the temperature, or something that happens to it during shipping.<br><br><br><br>
PixieMagic, do you shake the container? I wondered this morning if I should have. You know how soy/rice milks sometimes settle out... I thought the little blobs might be like that. Except they were floating.<br><br><br><br>
Hmm. Well, I'm at least going to finish the container I have, and then (since my spousal unit doesn't seem to object) probably try it again as well. And then maybe I will be used to it, regardless. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

Yes, I shook the container. The creamer was for my visiting in-laws morning coffee though, so I'm not purchasing this on a regular basis. This was my first time buying the stuff, so I don't know if it varies from batch to batch. (Although I find it highly unusual that there would be such inconsistency.) Sorry, I know this wasn't very helpful...<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/sad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":(">

You know what I've found is working better for me, is plain Silk -- just soy milk, not creamer. The flavor is good, it doesn't separate, and best of all, it's blob-less

I just read the labels to the international delight creamers in search of a fat free variety of non dairy creamer. I have been using the silk vanilla creamer, but decided cutting out 60 + calories with my cups of coffee is not a bad idea. I had no idea International delights had my arch nemesis Caseinate in it. ARRGH! Foiled again by that dang milk protein put on this earth to make my vegan life more difficult. (sorry to be so melodramatic <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">)

I thought after I started making my own soy milk that we wouldn't need the creamer, but Mr. Johnson has informed me that the milk does not like his coffee. The funny part was the first time he did it, he told me my milk was bad. I was hoping he was wrong since I froze the remainder of it to make ice cream. The ice cream turned out great and then I had him use the new batch of milk and he said it was definitely the milk doesn't hold up in coffee, bummer. Oh, well back to buying the silk creamers - they are good!
