Review of Silk's Unsweetened Creamy Cashew Milk - Original

When I first tried this, I loved the taste. It tasted a little bit like those ice cream toppings I used to have as a kid. It is also much creamier than the other milk alternatives (like rice, almond, and even soy milk).

I like that they made this unsweetened version. It helps me to continue eating sugar-free.

The ingredients list is not too bad, but of course could be better ("sunflower lecithin" and "natural flavour" sound like euphemism words for something not so natural and probably not so healthy).

It's nice that it's non-GMO. But would be better if it were organic too.

I have been buying this when it's on sale, and will continue to buy it (when it's on sale and the other items on sale are of the same quality).

I know Silk is no saint when it comes to ingredients, but unfortunately there aren't that many better options at the grocery store.

Review of Daiya's Cheezy Mac - Deluxe Style Alfredo

My opinion of this product is very similar to the one for the Cheddar flavour.

When I opened the package, I noticed again how small the pasta is.
 IT did grow after cooked, though.

However, like the cheddar, the Alfredo sauce tasted just like the regular cheesed Alfredo sauce. There was still a very slight chemical taste, but not nearly as much as the cheddar.

Similar to the cheddar, the Alfredo sauce also tasted a bit sandy. I don't know if that's the sugar of if it's something else that doesn't dissolve properly.

Talking about sugar, I was again weary of eating this because it contains refined sugar. I looked at the box and it says "Sugars: 0g" so I understand why I bought it. But it is listed in the ingredients list, so I know there is a little bit.

Still on sugar, I also felt a small "more more more" addictive craving for this pasta. Not nearly as much as the cheddar, but still a little bit.

I wouldn't buy this again because of the sugar, but in terms of taste it is ok.
