I'm not sure what half and half is, is it a type of milk?

lol!! Here in the USA, Half and half is half cream and half milk. People usually put it in coffee or other various hot beverages.

Coffee creamer just confuses me, where I am people just put milk in their tea or coffee. I don't get how it differs from single cream.

Not knowing what this "half and half" product is apart from creamy milk, if you must have (or really want) something similar, I'd suggest trying vegan cream products, maybe combined with plain soy milk If it's to make soy latte, I know that there are soy products made especially for that.

Silk creamer is good as is Trader Joe's creamer.

One third chips, one third rice and one third curry? ;) In Ireland we call that a 3-in-1...

Lol! You guys are funny. I tried to order a Soy Latte the other day....didn't really like it as much. Just as well. Trying to give up coffee anyway. Actually have successfully given it up for about 6 months, but sometimes I cheat. I've cheated twice. It's good though because not having dairy makes coffee less desirable. Dairy truly does make me very ill anyway, so it's easy to give up. Eggs are a bit harder, but since reading the chick culling thing it is a little easier, I just think of that every time I want them.

I much prefer coffee black, but only if I know it's good quality. Otherwise with soy - to mask that dirty dishwater taste. If you want something creamy, why not just have a nice smoothie instead?

Like Deniselynn said, in the U.S. Silk creamer is widely available in larger grocery chains in the organic refrigerated sections or wherever the refrigerated plant milks are. You can also order coffee creamers online through Veganessentials.com. I am not a creamer person myself (I drink it black or add a splash of almond milk to it if my stomach has had an overload of black coffee and needs a buffer lol), but I ordered this for family members one Christmas (the almond and cashew non soy based creamer) and tried it myself and it was decent: http://store.veganessentials.com/mimiccreme-flavored-coffee-creamers-p3319.aspx. I have always gotten stuff very quickly from that online store.

Now I know what a creamer is! Funny and educational! It sounds nice, but it'd turn my coffee into kind of a milkshake.
