Planet Oat Oatmilk Brings Low-Sugar Taste to the Dairy-Free World

Aside from the dark chocolate, all of the Planet Oat Oatmilk varieties are made without any added sugars. And even the chocolate version is modest in sugar compared to most competitors. All of the flavors are fortified to rival dairy milk in vitamins and minerals. But it’s still modest in protein when compared to dairy.

They do use some thickeners and stabilizers to aid in the creamy finish, but unlike some oatmilk brands, this is an oil-free option.

Looks and Tastes Like Dirty Dishwater

June 12, 2020

Years ago I saw a funny sketch on Comedy Central about a marketing firm trying to come up with ways to sell Yogurt Water–you know, that thin film of sour water that forms on top of a half-eaten container of yogurt when you put it back in the fridge overnight. Well, the folks at Planet Oat must have seen that comedy sketch too, and decided to turn it into a business model. “Hey, guys, let’s take the cloudy, starchy liquid that’s left at the bottom of a bowl of oatmeal when you accidentally make it too watery, and sell it in the grocery store!” I tried using the Vanilla Oatmilk as a substitute for my vanilla non-dairy creamer, but it’s really just gray water that did nothing to lighten the color of the coffee, but did succeed in giving it a really nasty aftertaste. I had to pour the whole cup of coffee down the sink, quickly followed by the remaining 49 ounces of the container of oatmilk. I’m sure at tomorrow morning’s Planet Oat sales dept. meeting, someone will say, “hey, you know that dirty water that collects in the drain pipe under the kitchen sink? I have a brilliant idea for a new product….”

This is the worst oat milk I’ve had. Extremely watery and lacking flavor. This is the “original”

The first time I bought some of the Dark Chocolate Plant Oatmilk the taste was great it had me as a new customer. Decided to go back to the store and buy another carton. Unfortunately, the second carton was not so great. Purchased the carton May 2020 and had about a half of the carton left. On Sunday, May 31, poured a glass started to drink the milk and felt something lumpy and thick in my mouth from the milk. Spit the milk and whatever the object was back in the glass and to my surprise, it was some type of mildew in the milk. The expiration date on the carton said June 25, 2020. Sadly, not in any hurry to buy a third carton. Heading back to the store buy Silk Dark Chocolate Almond milk.

I am used to the almond milk, which stays good for a long time. I bought a carton on the extra creamy with an expiration date of May 30. It was bad when I poured it today, May 6. I will be careful in the future to use it quickly or stick to almond milk if I don’t plan on using it up quickly.

What do you mean, "Extra Creamy"

April 15, 2020

yeah, this stuff is extra creamy, when comparing it to Skim Milk. I use oat-milk for my coffee, and for cooking, and i like it creamy. So, when I saw this product, I thought i’d give it a shot. I have to use 2-3 times as much to get the same creamy-ness as another oat-milk. the taste is pretty not-that-great as well. I
