Simply Almond Milk goes Mainstream with 5 Ingredients or Less

0

Coca Cola has finally entered the North American market of plant-based milk. Back in 2013, they purchased the UK brand Innocent, which makes juices, smoothies, and milk alternatives. But Simply Almond Milk is their first domestic dairy-free milk beverage, and it falls in line with the juice brand’s wholesome image. Each variety contains just 3 to 5 ingredients (4 to 6 if you count water) and is free of thickeners and emulsifiers.

I tried the unsweetened. Thicker than most and creamier then most. The slight almond taste was good. Taste fresh. The other ones have a bit to much sugar.

Was skeptical, but fell in love with the unsweetened version. Wonderful in my coffee, cereal, etc.

This appears to separate or curdle when combined with hot coffee etc.

I appreciate that Simply Almond doesn’t contain calcium – that’s very difficult to find! Calcium interferes with the absorption of some vitamins and minerals so I like to be able to separate/control my intake of calcium. It’s good too! No sugar added, no other unnecessary ingredients.

Simply Almond taste as advertised… Thin (no fillers), flavorful (original or unsweetened) & a great addition to a product line… Will continue to search for your market presence ..

I bought the original. Just stumbled upon it on a grocery run. Light. Flavorful. Earthy. I can drink it straight. It has now become my go-to.

Before Simply came out with this almond milk,I bought the two leading vanilla almond milks found in most stores. After buying Simply’s version of almond milk, I wonder why I ever had to have that thick texture of a milk in the first place? Yuck, I gag thinking back on those smoothie milks, ha! It’s Simply Almond for me from now on.

From a milk lover who just doesn’t enjoy the feeling it gives my stomach, this is the best alternative. i’ve tried every brand and this one has the best taste and texture. 10/10 alternative to real milk
