Silk Mint Chocolate - Seasonal Flavor

Oh.  Em.  Jeezy.  I was just walking around my local Whole Foods and stumbled upon the most amazing discovery of my life: Silk Mint Chocolate Soy Milk.  I'm a freak for anything mint chocolate; join me for a Babycakes trip and you'll see that I never leave without a Mint Brownie cupcake or check out my cart after a Trader Joe's run and you'll see it stocked with Larabar's Jocalat Mint Chocolate flavored bars.

I'm obsessed.  I'm in love.  I didn't even hesitate in buying two cartons because I knew how much I would love it.  My old roommate Vanessa first introduced me to the amazing variety of seasonal soy- and rice-milk flavors by bringing home a carton of Rice Dream Rice Nog; since then, I've been hooked on Rice Nog too.  You can stock up on Rice Dream's product as it requires no refrigeration.  I'll definitely make a grocery run soon and come home with 20 cartons of that stuff -- it's so good!

Anyway, back to Silk's products.  They also offer Pumpkin Spice and Nog seasonal flavors.  While I haven't tried the Nog flavor, the Pumpkin Spice flavor is also out-of-this-world amazing.  It definitely isn't an exaggeration to say that one of my favorite parts of the holiday season is all of the great seasonal food.  It's terrific to see products to cater to gluten free eaters during this time of year.  It's particularly nice to warm up a glass of Silk's Mint Chocolate drink on a "cold" night like tonight in West Hollywood... don't hate, you east coasters, but it's 58 degrees here and I'm freezing.  My heat is on.  I think I've officially transitioned from a New Yorker to an Angeleno.  Uh oh.

While reading through Silk's site, I happened upon Silk's attempt to debunk myths about soy.  You can check out all of the "myths" here, but one in particular caught my eye.  Please note that the following is a direct quote from Silk's site:

Myth: Consuming soy affects sexual orientation.
Reality: There is no scientific evidence that soy consumption affects sexual orientation.

I did a double-take when I read that.  Do people really believe that?!

Anyway... I hope you take the time out of your busy holiday schedules to pick up a carton of Silk's Mint Chocolate to test it out.

Do you love it or do you love it?

Costco has started carrying Rice Dream Original Enriched Rice Milk! However they only have it at select locations, but contact your local Costco and tell them you want them to carry it!
