They have it in different flavors. Chocolate is good. I can take that. The vanilla isn't bad. Would you consider a change?

I have problems with milk in that it makes me really congested so I use rice milk but occasionally use soy milk. I really like the Vanilla flavored varieties. It adds a better flavor to what it is used on.

I don't really like soy milk. My son used to drink it when he was about 2. He liked it then, but he does not like it now. My daughter will drink it though. So 1 out of 3 in a household will drink it. No switch is going to be made here.

I have thought about trying the soy milks, unfortunatly they are so much more expensive. They are about $5 for a half gallon. I'm just not willing to spend that much money.

I have. I drink soy from time to time. I don't see anything wrong with it. Plain soy just doesn't appeal to me, but I can drink it. In fact, I drank it today.

Soy milk is the only milk I buy. Hubby is lactose intolerant, so soymilk is the other option. I prefer vanilla, and for me, it taste pretty good.

NOPE! I tried the soy milk once a few years ago, and again after my son was born. Can't stand it! I tried the chocolate, vanilla, plain, they're all bad. I'd put it in my coffee, just ruined the coffee. Put it in my cereal, just ruined the cereal. They all taste BAD to begin with, but then they all have a HORRIBLE aftertaste! I even tried to give it to my son, before he ever had cow's milk, and he'd spit it out or throw it up every time! I'll just stick with my 2% cow milk, thanks. Not that I consume a lot of milk anyway, but I want it to taste good when I do!

I don't think I will ever change to soy. I have drank skim milk for probably the last 5 years of my life but I grew up on 1/2% or 2% milk for all the earlier years. I have never had any problems with my health. My parents grew up drinking regular milk as well as they didn't have soy and they are just as healthy. I really see no need to switch. We've been drinking milk like this for hundreds of years so I see no need to switch. I'm sure there are multiple people that will agree as I think everyone that has replied to your discussion has said they drink only soy. LOL But I guess it's just a difference of opinion. More power to you! :o)

Soy is great. My family changed over years ago the only times we miss it is when it comes time to cook. Real milk is always better for cooking because it has so much more fat wich could also be a reason not to use it.

We only drink soy milk. Even buying organic milk isn't that great, you still have all the naturally occurring hormones that are found in cows milk. We are humans, not baby cows.
