Title: Almond Milk
Post by: shopfdder on October 25, 2017, 03:46:51 PM
Does anyone have a good source from which to order almond milk? Even when I get a great price (as we did w/ the Google Express coupon), it's still the same price as cholov yisroel milk! Our preference is Almond Breeze unsweetened original. Thanks

Thanks. Just read somewhere that they sell it. Is it parve and is it only available in-store?

Sign me up for THAT. Was it a sale they were having or regular pricing?

They're showing $9.29 on their website for a 6-pack of 32oz (which isn't bad) https://www.costco.com/Kirkland-Signature-Organic-Vanilla-Almond-Beverage-32-oz%2c-6-pack.product.100314147.html

I don't think it was a sale (was yesterday which was after this months sale but before next months sale, which begins today. Also I'm looking at the receipt and doesn't show a discount.)

Not all Almond "milks" are created equal btw.
Some have a lot more ingredients than others.

And most aren't real 'Almond milk'  (water that almonds were soaked in and nothing else)

Found this on a site we enjoy https://www.vitacost.com/simple-truth-unsweetened-almondmilk (we can discuss some of their other "good buys" if you'd like). It's OU.

If you sign up for their mailer you can receive targeted offers. I just got one for $30 off a $100 order (though some items were excluded) plus another coupon for 15% (it didn't stack exactly but gave 30% off even when the order was over $100). Anyway, this would come out to $1.25 with that discount. And yes, that would be A LOT of almond milk and yes, I'm the type of person that would buy that many :)

I'm not vegan and I truly love a good cheese and I enjoy my meat and chicken but honestly being vegan isn't bad like you'd first imagine.   It pushes you to try new things and really appreciate the flavors and spices etc.

People were cholishing over that Enjoy Life chocolate so it's not the bean-sprout-tofu-shitaki-mushrooms lifestyle by any means. What I meant was a thread to post deals on those types of items in one place (since they're usually more expensive and not as many people might buy them).

If someone else is making the food it tastes better :)

Sounds like you're really make-it-yourself though. We cook a lot at home but still need to buy things like olive oil and also have snacks for the kids.

Btw, if you haven't yet set up a Fresh Direct acct, they have Seventh Generation products and the 50oz. dish soap would be just $3 which I'm pretty sure is an EXCELLENT price. But maybe you make your own dish soap too? If so, please share the recipe  ;D

Post by: shopfdder on November 10, 2017, 10:14:16 AM
Just FYI, if you haven't yet created a Fresh Direct account on the current promotion of $50 off of $100 http://forums.dansdeals.com/index.php?topic=62786.0 then they have the usual selection of almond milks https://www.freshdirect.com/srch.jsp?pageType=search&searchParams=almond+milk&pageSize=30&all=false&activePage=1&sortBy=Sort_Relevancy&orderAsc=true&activeTab=product (and other "alt milks")

For example a Blue Diamond Almond Breeze (all flavors) is $2.49 so 50% off of that.

Other brands call it that (and you can certainly search for it that way) but it is, afterall, an almond BEVERAGE...or colored water in many cases  :o
