    Depends on the brand. Alpro (note, not Alpo!!) tastes quite similar, but some other brands taste like cardboard.

    And I have it all the time. Prefer it to normal milk in most cases.

    soy milk does not replace cow milk in terms of nutrients. But it has other benefits...

    Another vote for Silk!
    I've tried several brands and found Silk to be the best.

    Huh? Who said anything about Australia? :confused:

    For the record we don't have Silk here as far as I know.

    Is it because all 2987 photos he has posted at MacRumours is of surfers at the beach? ;)

    Nope. Dynamicv's right.

    It's weird to see soy milk sold "everywhere" and in it's different forms. All growing up I had access to soy milk but from Asian markets and restaurants and the way I consumed it probably seriously detracted from any potential health benefits. :p

    It's "doh- jiang," right? We have it as a sort of weekend brunch type thing. There's the sweet preparation of it and there's my favorite, the salty kind (it has chili oil, bean curd, some deep fried doughy stuffs, cilantro, green onion, and probably other stuff that I'm forgetting :eek:). It's scrumptious. Mm.

    Ick, I've tried soy milk when that was the only thing available, but the sweet aftertaste leaves a very sour taste in my mouth. :p I've had Silk and some other brands. It just makes me feel like I want to gag.

    I like real milk. 1% is my favorite as it's a good balance; whole tends to be too creamy and skim milk is just not an option (yuck!).

    Why does soy milk taste so different between companies? The variation in taste in cows milk companies is so much smaller. There must be something very weird in the way they produce and "prepare" soy milk to get such great variability. Maybe the method is very artificial, and so the results vary depending on how they do it.


    Anyway, I drink soy milk everyday when I have cereal, but I never drink it straight.

    Well you don't need to drink cow milk at all. I wouldn't replace cow milk in my diet with something else since I don't drink it. Actually, I'll eat ice cream and some cheese, but that's pretty much it, I think.

    MACDRIVE, I much prefer rice milk. If Silk or whatever soy milk you pick up isn't your cup of tea (make sure you try the chocolate version of it too if you don't like the plain or vanilla 'white' variants which most people reach toward first), I would also recommend Rice Dream.

    Is there a reason you're averse to dairy milk? It's got much more protein, more protein bio-availability, and just the perfect amount of simple sugars for a little insulin boost along with the protein. Though non-organic milk is creepy, and non-free-range cow milk does make me sad (having grown up on a dairy farm which was ethical but having seen others that were not). And I agree with a vegan friend of mine that it is pretty weird to drink the mammary fluids of another species, indefinitely... but I find milk to be sustainable, along with a lot of other animal products and byproducts, thus I still drink it.

    Agreed. Except I like the Light Chocolate. Only because I think it has a better balance of chocolate flavor. Not too overpowering.

    Vanilla is also really really good. I haven't had dairy milk straight in a long time. I'll still use it for cereal and stuff, but that's about it.
