Long ago, Silk had a few holiday beverages, including those ever-so-popular Pumpkin Spice and Mint Chocolate flavors. 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, as Silk Holiday Nog really is a classic. It is soymilk based, and thus not a good option for the soy-free set. But Silk Holiday Nog is dairy-free, gluten-free, vegan, made with non-GMO whole soybeans, and respectable in the sweetener department (just 11 grams of sugars per dessert-like cup), making it a great seasonal treat for many.
As for the taste, I let two friends who can drink traditional dairy eggnog weight 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 pouring myself a glass and enjoying a sip, I concurred with both. It was 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 was sweet with a definite “nog” vibe that made me think of baking cookies while the snow falls outside.
