Natural Holiday Beverage Guide
The holidays bring with them some really exciting limited edition beverages. Forget about boring old egg nog…check out what is in the dairy case at your Foodland now.
Silk has a trio of holiday offerings.
•Silk Pumpkin Spice…mix this into your coffee and you have a pumpkin soy latte within seconds.
•Silk Mint Chocolate is great either hot or cold. Think of it as chocolate milk with a candy cane swirled in it.
•Silk Nog…this is a long time favorite. Great egg nog flavor without out all the calories and fat.
Organic egg nog is delicious! No artificial colors, flavors, high-fructose corn syrup or artificial anything.
I don’t even think I liked egg nog before I tried an organic version years ago and now I get excited this time of year when it comes back.
We have Horizon Organic and Organic Valley egg nog available in all stores in the 32 oz carton.
A great alternative to the traditional egg nogs is from Imagine Foods.
Rice Dream Rice Nog is a grain based beverage with all of the flavor and not much of the fat. It’s a great way to have all of the fun and start your new year’s resolutions early!
Look for our natural holiday beverages in your local Foodland and let me know which your favorite is. Be sure to check out my Natural Holiday Snacking Guide to learn more about some delicious natural snacks that go great with these yummy beverages.
Happy Holidays and Cheers!
Mmmm…popchips! You know I love them. What’s not to love? No artificial colors, flavors or anything really bad for you. Katy Perry apparently loves them too and recently partnered with popchips to create her own new flavor.
I usually don’t get crazy for Kettle Corn, as I like salty more than sweet, but let's just say, I tried Katy Perry's new Kettle Corn popchips, and I liked it!
They have the perfect blend of sweet and salty with all the popchips goodness. ... more »

Perhaps you have a vegetarian coming over for Thanksgiving this year. Seems every family has somebody nowadays that is not eating meat. Struggling over what to feed them? Well, I know that Thanksgiving is all about the Turkey but being a veggie myself, I can tell you that you don’t really need to do anything all that special for your vegetarian family or friends.
We wouldn’t want you to miss out on all of the delicious holiday beverages this year! After all, they only come around once. With Silk®’s healthy alternatives, we are able to indulge on all of them. We are so excited to have Silk® Nog Soymilk and Silk ®Mint Chocolate Soymilk in our Foodland stores! It is on Maikai for $3.99 for the 32 oz carton.
I finally got to try the Silk® Fruit & Protein drinks! But let me tell you, it wasn’t easy….
When I originally got samples of the three flavors, I organized a tasting within our office for a few people to try. I ended up getting called into a meeting and when I came out, the containers were all empty and I had nothing but glowing reviews.
Then, I went and bought one at Foodland Beretania and my niece polished it off before I ever got a chance at it!
Have you tried cooking with coconut oil yet?
It has become a staple in my house, but often when I tell people about this wonderful oil, I hear something to the effect of, “aren’t tropical oils bad for you?” I also heard a lot about coconut oil being high in saturated fat, which didn’t sound good either.
Anybody remember that Reese’s Peanut butter commercial (I might be dating myself here) where the guys are walking around the corner…one is eating chocolate and the other is eating peanut butter. They bump into each other and create a truly wonderful flavor combination. Well…it took a few decades but that winning combination of chocolate and peanut butter might have just got beat out by coconut and peanut butter! I just finished my first jar of Earth Balance Coconut and Peanut Spread ... more »
