Vanilla Soy Milk is the solution.

With Vanilla Silk Soy Milk available, I don't think I will ever have to resort to high-fat whole milk or its watered-down alternatives ever again.

And it tastes better than whole milk.

Vanilla soy is da bamb.

People who don't like soy milk should be shot in the face by Cheney.

People who like soy milk... oh, never mind. I'll just take the high road and tell you to enjoy your "milk".

Cows = Milk = America.

Soy Milk = treading the first steps on the path to communism, wearing organic hemp sandals.

I love reduced fat milk.

I love Silk chocolate/vanilla soy milk (the plain/unflavored stuff is brutally disgusting).

I love mixing half milk and half soy whenever i happen to buy soy milk.

I go through 2 gallons of milk in a week by myself. Heck, i almost finished 1/2 a gallon yesterday afternoon/evening...

if you had to spend some time with me after I drank cow milk, you'd soon be embracing the new order, comrade.

FYI, i heard that consuming a lot of soy (protein, milk, tofu, etc) has been linked to reduced sperm count.

I agree, but I won't let you buy it from Whole Foods.

Not a bad idea. I'd vote for that.

As long as Cheney does not shoot me in the face with soy milk, which may reduce brain function in males according to recent studies, I am fine with that.

Soy milk is chalky and can mess with thyroid function, especially those of us with abnormal thyroids (mine's a multinodular goiter).

I don't do soy milk.

didn't they just show that soy milk increases estrogen levels in the male body and you will grow boobies?


great minds think alike Psydotek! Albeit we were both thinking of MOOBS

My wife is drinking vanilla soy milk because of the baby's intolerance to cow's milk (not unusual).

But she can't stand it.

So she tried the chocolate version. Kid got so strung out on caffeine from the coco I thought his head was going to burst open.

I still think almond milk tastes better. I stand by that. You can shoot me in the face now.

I like unsweetened chocolate almond milk, but it has tiny little bits in it -- like the cinnamon in your coffee.

I'm a huge fan of soy milk. I don't give a crap about the phytoestrogen scare. I'm familiar with Le Chatelier's principle as it applies to the estrageneous introduction of hormones in the body -- estrogen receptor sites might receive the phytoestrogens and essentially block the production of estrogen, increasing the proportion of testosterone.

Vanilla soy milk is da bomb, especially on oatmeal. Try this: steel-cut oatmeal (like McCann's), cooked in vanilla soy milk, add dried cranberries and crushed walnuts, and additional soy milk after cooking. Day-um that's good eating! I've never tried it with almond milk, but I'd bet that works well too.

Now that sounds good! We practically lived off oatmeal on our tour.
