More milk taste testing. The Silk Pure Almond Dark Chocolate milk has been a pretty good hit. My daughter loves chocolate milk of any kind so she wasn’t too hard to please. I thought it was pretty good too. The dark chocolate in the name threw off my son but honestly it didn’t seem to taste like dark chocolate.
The consistency was good too. Not too thin and not too thick like those corn syrup chocolate milks.
Unfortunately, the rave reviews did NOT carry over to the regular Silk Pure Almond Milk. I thought my oldest son was pulling my leg when he said, “I don’t like almonds. This tastes like almonds.” I figured he was just freaking out because of the name. But sure enough, the stuff tastes just like almonds. I don’t know why I didn’t expect that except that the Coconut milk didn’t taste like coconuts.
Oh well, I’m not giving up. I’ve got a few more choices to try. In the meantime, other members of the family have already started buying regular milk again. It makes it pretty impossible for me to insist that my kids drink funky new milk if the regular fattening milk is still showing up in the fridge. The battle continues I guess. I’ll keep you posted.
