Long ago, Silk had a few holiday beverages, including those ever-so-popular Pumpkin Spice and Mint Chocolate flavors. They’ve also tinkered around with Almond Milk Nog. But in recent years, they scaled back their seasonal offerings to focus solely on Silk Holiday Nog.
I think it could have been a good move, since Silk Holiday Nog really is a classic. It’s a sweet soymilk-based nog that’s dairy-free, gluten-free, vegan, and made with non-GMO whole soybeans. It also has a respectable amount of sweetener (just 11 grams of sugars per dessert-like cup), making it a great seasonal treat for many.
Tasting Notes & Information for Silk Holiday Nog
I let two friends who can drink traditional dairy eggnog weigh in first. Caroline immediately proclaimed, “it tastes like Christmas!” Raechelle said, “this tastes the most like eggnog that I would buy at the store … a little too sweet, but good.” Finally, I poured myself a glass and enjoyed a sip. I concurred with both of them.
Silk Holiday Nog is slightly thinner than I expected, more like a 2% milk than a light cream, but still full-bodied and rich enough to call an indulgence. The flavor is sweet with a definite “nog” vibe that made me think of baking cookies while the snow falls outside.
