Two weeks ago I e-mailed Jack and Amy, two of PETA’s bloggers saying, “If I wrote a blog I’d write about how excited I am about this time of the year because Silk Nog is in the grocery stores and I love it. If you feel the same way as me then maybe you could mention the awesomeness that is Silk Nog in your blog.” It turns out neither Jack nor Amy felt the same way as me…But the good news is that since Jack is busy getting naked for animals today I do have a blog for the day and I will share with the world my feelings about Silk Nog!Silk Nog makes the holiday meal. Silk Nog is better for you than dairy & egg-based nogs. Silk Nog tastes better than eggy non-soy nogs. Silk Nog doesn’t involve animal cruelty. And really, who wants to drink chicken periods? Silk Nog is a seasonal drink—so act quick before it’s off the shelf for another 10 months. You can usually find it—or another brand of soy nog—by the egg nogs in your grocery store.
On the topic of vegan versions of foods that are much better tasting than the non-vegan version let’s chat about Vegenaise. I always hated mayonnaise. I thought it was goopy, yucky, rottenness. I couldn’t eat a meal that had a drop of mayo in it. I don’t know what possibly convinced me to get over my hatred of mayo to try Vegenaise, but fortunately I made the leap of faith one day. It turns out Vegenaise is far, far better tasting than mayo. It’s good enough to eat by the spoonful. It’s unfortunate that it’s marketed to vegans rather than just anyone who realizes how disgusting mayo is. Betternaise. Tastinaise. So to everyone who’s never been blessed with a mouth full of Vegenaise—do your taste buds a favor and try some today. What foods do you think the vegan version is better than the non-vegan version?- Joel Bartlett
