REVIEW: Silk Soymilk Mint Chocolate

Silk Mint Chocolate Soy Milk

Do your children still believe in Santa Claus?

Good. Keep lying to them and recommend that instead of plain white milk, which “Santa” throws out anyway, they should pour a glass of Silk’s Mint Chocolate Soymilk to go with the cookies they leave out for Santa.

If your children ask you why Silk Soymilk Mint Chocolate, tell them leaving the special seasonal flavor of soymilk might encourage Santa to leave them a better gift, like a pony, a mommy and daddy who don’t fight all the time, or the greatest gift of all, a $1,000 iTunes gift card.

Of course, if they leave out the mint chocolate-flavored soymilk for Santa, they won’t wake up to any of those awesome gifts, unless you robbed a ranch or Apple Store. But you can console them by saying, “Maybe Santa didn’t leave you a pony because you were a little too naughty this year. What do you have to say for yourself? Is there anything you’d like to admit?”

Why lie to your children in order to get them to pour a glass of this flavored soymilk for Santa? Because you’re probably tired of plain white milk, Silk Soymilk Mint Chocolate is tasty, and because, admit it, lying to your kids is so easy to do.

Children are so dumb… I mean, gullible… I mean, innocent.

No, on second thought, since I don’t have children, I mean dumb.

I think Silk Soymilk Mint Chocolate is good enough to make up for the compounded lies and therapy your offspring might have to go through to get past trust issues. Also, if you have no guilt or conscience, I believe the soymilk will taste much sweeter.

Unfortunately, the soymilk’s chocolate flavor wasn’t what I was expecting. I was hoping it would be as chocolatey as Silk’s regular chocolate soymilk, but just like the drinks at strip clubs, it was slightly watered down. However, the soymilk has the right amount of mint flavor. There’s just enough so that you know it’s there, but it doesn’t overpower, much like the amount of cologne a gentleman puts on.

The Silk Soymilk Mint Chocolate isn’t perfect, but I think it’s the best of the three Silk Soymilk holiday flavors, which also include Nog and Pumpkin Spice. Also, I think if you add a little Baileys Irish Cream, it will make the toy below slightly less annoying, if your child asks Santa for it.

    I love this stuff!! I can’t drink cow’s milk so it works for me.

  2. Chuck says:

    The only way to make that toy less annoying would be with a full glass of Bailey’s.

  3. nomitai says:

    Tried this the other day, and it’s not quite as good as my usual Nesquik + mint Maalox cocktail. I’ll have to try it with the Bailey’s.

  4. Steve says:

    I dont know if I’ve ever had soymilk, but this sounds like a good first step into a larger soy world.

    and @nomitai, Nesquik + mint Maalox cocktail is the grossest/funniest thing I’ve heard all week.

  5. Bunny says:

    I haven’t seen any of the seasonal flavors :(

  6. Jared says:

    This stuff was absolutely disgusting. Tasted mega-watered down and not at all like mint chocolate chip iced cream, which is what I was expecting. It’s like what would result if you put a scoop of mint chocolate chip iced cream in a 16oz glass and then filled it the rest of the way up with water. Just gross and flavorless.
