…but first I gotta tell you a story.
I poured me some Silk Dark Chocolate Almond Milk, but missed the cup. There was milk on the counter in a chocolate puddle. And you know what Greedy Kid #2 said?
“Mom, that milk looks like you. You look like a pool of a chocolate milk when you sleep. Because you look dead when you sleep.”
What da fluck? I promise I did not inhale alcoholic beverages during that pregnancy…. (end of story)
Silk Dark Chocolate Almond took me by surprise, just like when I was slapped by Greedy Baby (is there a hotline to report that?). I was braced for pure nastiness, but could not deny the smooth, delicious, chocolatey sensastion. It doesn’t taste like dark chocolate, but eh, so what. I’m totally happy with its milk chocolate taste that can battle with brown liquid big dawgs, like Nestle and Hershey’s.
It’s good, people. And it’s proving why my transition away from dairy milk to the Land of Almond is smart and savvy and cool. Unlike dairy, Silk Dark Chocolate Almond Milk has NO cholesterol, NO saturated fat, and packs 50% more calcium than the moo juice. So go drink some. And (maybe) share it with your favorite child-spawn.
