Silk and soymilk are almost synonymous. Their website even has the URL of www.SilkSoymilk.com.
But soy has its own set of enemies. And grabbing a bit more shelf space always is to a company's advantage. So Silk is extending its tendrils and doing a bit of brand extension, introducing two flavors, original and vanilla, of Silk PureAlmond, a dairy-free, lactose-free milk alternative made from almonds.
The Wegmans site has a long paragraph taken from a Silk handout on the new drink, an oddity since they aren't listed among the store locations.
All natural almondmilk (added vitamins & minerals, including vitamin E). 90 calories per serving; rich in antioxidants (added vitamins & minerals, including vitamin E), lactose-free & soy free. 90 calories per serving.
