Since the turn of the decade (last week!), Danone has been quietly releasing several new dairy-free products under their Silk brand.

Good on Silk!
Creamy, somewhat sweet and perfect for coffee. Very reasonably priced compared tooher non-dairy creamers.
Best non-dairy coffee creamer
I love this product. I used to use 1/2 & 1/2 in my coffee and this is as close as it gets!
Creamy Dairy-free, Nut-free Half and Half!
Finally, a product that gives me the rich satisfying texture and flavor of regular Half and half, without the cholesterol of dairy! I actually prefer this to regular! Just shake vigorously first and then pour it in. I’m allergic to nuts, so can’t have all those substitutes. Thank you silk!
The best ever
I just love this creamer for my coffee my Bullet Proof Coffee taste so creamy and whitens my coffee just how I like it !hopefully will be easier to find in stores soon
Very tasty coffee creamer!
`No bitter aftertaste, is close to the mouthfeel of 10% dairy cream. I adapted to it quickly. I like it.
I recently discovered this great creamer and was wowed!! Way better than dairy cream – I am sold, will be buying this from now on. I can’t wait for my cup of coffee every morning because of this great new cream for it!! So rich, creamy, calorie savy, tasty and healthy too!!
I can’t do without 1/2 & 1/2 and Silk’s is delicious and creamy! Fantastic! Will not use anything else. Only problem in my town is we have Walmart and Winn Dixie. It’s out of stock all the time there. Winn Dixie will not carry it and I’ve tried to get them to. Ridiculous!
Where Can I Find My Elusive Creamer?
I LOVE! LOVE! LOVE! this creamer! Became addicted to the rich creamy and non sweetened goodness. Now it’s nowhere to be found! It’s been seven long months since I’ve tasted the BEST thing to hit my coffee and tea! Not doing dairy and the substitutes are not doing it for me! I would drive a long distance to buy it but no one can help me find a distributer. I do use the Silk Whipping Cream. Love it also. I only buy paper carton products. Never plastic!
I like it with fresh raspberries! (And I don't like coconut!!)
I don’t like coconut at all, but I really like Silk Half & Half. Of course it’s good in coffee and baked goods, etc. But it’s also good with raspberries and I can imagine with other fruit also. The flavor is excellent and actually tastes better than dairy half & half to me. A real find!!
Love Silk Dairy free half & half
Nice consistency and great taste. I love it in my coffee and use it for other kitchen needs.
