does anyone else drink it???

i LOVE silk soy milk, i've been drinking it for about a year and half now it's by far the best soy milk on the market... anyway they recently came out with silk light, and since i'm on health kick i started picking it up.. anyway a few days ago i went to use a carton (it was supposed to be good for another month) and i opened it and it had COMPLETLY seprated!! it was the most disgusting thing i've seen in my entire life!! i've emailed the company and am still waiting on a response (and hopefully some cupons to at least replace the carton i can't use)

anyway my question is has anyone else had this happen to them, or heard that there's a problem with the silk light or something... cuase i'm now like soooo nervous about using it (i picked up a carton of silk orginal) but i'm almost afraid to open it and try to pour it onto something and ruin it you, know?

I had a carton of another brand recently that was separated and gross. The carton had a dent in it, so I am assuming that is how it spoiled. It was getting air through the dent. Thats why I won't eat dented cans either.

hmm....... come to think of it was dented... like pretty much everything at that store, they hire some real idiots i've had friends work there, and it's rediculous what they'll throw around there

wow! thank you for the insight it makes A LOT of sense... i'll be more careful the next time. i just was thinking maybe there was something wrong with the light cause i've not noticed it at the store the last few weeks.

still haven't noticed any new shipments of silk light, it's really got me wondering, but the company did send me a check for five fifty which i receieved today, which actually ends up being more then i paid for the nasty soy milk so i'm pretty happy with the outcome...

even if i do see the light stuff on the sheleves again i'm gonna be terrified to try it :(

Dusty,

FYI, I buy the fat free So Good soy milk brand all the time and have never had any problems with separation. The fat free vanilla is good too, but a bit higher in calories. It's great on cereal.

i buy the so good in the juice box containers for work and i honestly perfer the taste of the silk stuff, the reason i started to buy the light was i enjoy the chocolate soy milk instead of a midnight snack and i thought if i was drinking that much chocolate maybe i should change to light soy milk... hmmm but light vanilla for cereal does sound good however i'll definatly do some more comparing if i'm gonna go with the light soy milk

I'm just wondering...but what is light about silk light? Is it total calories, fat, added sugar? The term light tends to be a very misleading term...even light soya sauce refers to salt content. We buy so good omega...which is the highest in fat. BUT, it is fat from flax and other healthy sources which we need.
