Pros: Subtle vanilla flavor, organic, protein, calcium/vitamin D, smooth consistency
Cons: Bubbles from shaking contents
While at Costco, I decided to stray from my usual Silk Soymilk and try the Silk Vanilla Organic Soymilk instead.
The Silk Vanilla Organic Soymilk is available in a variety of different sizes. I purchased the bulk, 3 half gallon containers from Costco. The three half gallon package cost $7.19 at Costco. If purchased separately at grocery stores, each half gallon runs about $3.
"A subtle touch of pure, organic vanilla takes Silk from simple to scrumptious. One sip, and you'll understand why Vanilla's our most popular flavor. Try it over cereal, and you might just fall in love. Plus, like all Silk products, Silk Organic Vanilla comes with zero cholesterol, absolutely no lactose and a healthy dose of optimism. Six mighty grams of nourishing organic soy protein. As much calcium as dairy milk. Naturally-occurring omega-3s. Protective antioxidants. Very low saturated fat. No artificial colors, flavors or funny business."
Organic Soymilk (Filtered Water, Whole Organic Soybeans), Organic Evaporated Can Juice, Calcium Carbonate, Natural Vanilla Flavor, Sea Salt, Carrageenan, Vitamin A Palmitate, Vitamin D2, Riboflavin (B2), Vitamin B12.

I wanted to try the Silk Vanilla Organic Soymilk because I wanted a slightly flavored soymilk to add to my bowl of Kashi Go Lean Cereal. I thought the vanilla flavor would be a good addition to the cereal but was a bit concerned that the soymilk would be heavy on the vanilla flavoring.
Before pouring a glass of the Silk Vanilla Organic Soymilk, I shake the container to mix the contents up as directed by Silk. As with the other Silk soymilks, when I shake the container, it causes the formation of bubbles, which I don't like drinking.
Now to the important part of the soymilk -- the taste. The Silk Vanilla Organic Soymilk has a definite but subtle taste of vanilla to it. The vanilla flavor is enough so that there is more flavor than the plain version, but it isn't so much that it tastes like drinking a vanilla shake. I like that it isn't a potent dose of vanilla, though Silk does offer the Very Vanilla flavor those those who wish for more vanilla. As for the consistency of the soymilk, it is very smooth. There isn't one bit of chalkiness that I can note in the soymilk. It drinks as smooth as the plain and the plus soymilk, and smoother than the chocolate version. The Silk Vanilla Organic Soymilk is another winner for Silk in terms of taste and consistency -- it is one of the best tasting soymilks as well as the best in terms of consistency. With some other soymilks, there can be chunky residue at the bottom of a cup, but not with Silk. The only thing that remains behind are the bubbles from shaking the container.
The Silk Vanilla Organic Soymilk adds a nice, subtle flavor to my morning bowl of Kashi Go Lean cereal. I also like to drink it as a pick-me-up snack. It's great that packs a good amount of protein (6 grams per cup) and is fairly low in calories at 100 calories per cup. The Silk Vanilla Organic Soymilk also provides a healthy dose of calcium (30% DV) and vitamin D. All of this nutrition while tasting great and organic!!
I'm glad I decided to try Silk Vanilla Organic Soymilk because it's another delicious soymilk from Silk. It's smooth, delicious, and offers a hint of vanilla flavor.
Thanks for reading.
