Almond milk is pretty good and it's not even that expensive where I get it. 32oz for about $2.

It only has a couple of grams of protein per serving, like 2 or 3, and most soymilk I use has 7 or 8 grams of protein per serving.

But it is a nice change if you want to try it out.

Almond butter and soy nut butter are both pretty good especially if you get tired of peanut butter.

Keep on rockin!

I really like almond butter. Tastes to me a bit sweeter than peanut butter. $ bucks for 11 oz of it down here in TX. Anyone else have a Kroger or one of their affiliates? Thats where i buy this stuff.

I sometimes buy it in bulk from Costco (a wholesale retail membership club deal here in the US)...when I buy it in bulk, it comes in little ready to drink (straw included :D ) aseptic packages...when I buy some, I'll let you know...I wouldn't mind sending you some! 8)

My vote goes to 8th Continent for chocolate. Trader Joe's makes their own soy milk too, and it's good - very inexpensive.
Silk makes (eggless) eggnog that is DELICIOUS. I can't wait till it's in stores again in the winter.
Some of the brands mentioned I've never even heard of - but I know there are tons I haven't tried, the New Seasons Market in my hometown has an entire wall of soy/rice/almond/whatever else there is milks with tons I haven't tried yet. It's really quite an impressive selection.

8th continent isn't vegan.

My daughter likes chocolate sun soy (made by the same company as silk - she doesn't much like silk). I drink both sun soy and silk they taste the same to me.

Vegenaise is awesome. I never like mayo either- nayonaise reminds me of mayo:P yelck BUT I could sit down with a jar of vegenaise and a spoon. When I first started eating vegenaise I had NO idea what to do with it. I was running around like what can I put this yummy stuff on.. I didn't care.

I used to love Soy Dream, but now my favorite chocolate soymilk is Vitasoy.

I've only tried Nayonnaise, so don't know what vegenaise tastes like, but if it's as good as ReneCarol says it is, I will be upping my efforts to find some soon. :lol:

it used to have Vitamin D3 (sheep sweat). after numerous emails and complaints from vegans, they now put regular vitamin D in the soymilk and not sheep sweat.

I checked recently and all the 8th continent chocolate soymilks I could find said vitamin D on it, in place of the usual vitamin D3. I havent checked the original or vanilla flavors, so Im not sure about those but imagine they are now vegan as well. :)

Well now I've heard everything.

Only vegans complained about consuming sheep sweat?
