    The soya light is on offer at sainsburys at the moment, as is all their alpro milk - I have ordered the light one to try as I am finding it hard to find a milk I like since giving up dairy. Actually I love all the flavoured ones, but somehow chocolate or banana in tea just doesn't seem right

    have you already tried almond/oat/rice/quinoa milk when you´re not that well getting along with soya milk?

    No I haven't. I thought I would give the light version a go and if that fails then try a rice milk instead. I guess it is just process of elimination until you find something you like.

    Okay, so having not been to Morrisons this week I was down to my last half carton of Alpro light, I popped into Somerfield to get a normal carton of Alpro Soya to put me on until later next week when I came across this stuff called 'Soya Magic'. As it was on special offer I thought I'd give it a try....it is NOT GOOD, one drink I made with it got tipped away, and the rest of the carton swiftly followed. Special offer or no special offer I shall NOT be buying it again!!

    I have a carton sitting in the fridge right now that I haven't got round to using yet. I'm fairly sure I remember Bryzee trying it and that it was much better than the UHT one!!

    What is it like? In terms of consistency and use. Is it thick, or is it more like a creamer like you'd put in coffee?

    I've tasted it, and it's pretty nice. I think the UHT one tastes a bit too soya-like (but fine for some stuff like making truffles), but this one is good, and i think a bit thicker...

    Has anyone tried it in coffee? Soya milk and the UHT alpro cream seem to curdle in coffee, it tastes fine, but looks really strange. Might have to find some of this and fingers crossed it reacts a bit better.

    Obviously the curdle isn't an actual curdle, I was told that it's something to do with Ph levels by someone who seemed to know what they were talking about.

    haven't tried in in coffee, a tip to stop your milk curdling, put in your coffee then add a couple of mm of hot water, stir to disolve coffee granules and then add your milk then top up with hot water

    I had it on some co-op blackberry and apple pie a couple of weeks ago. I really quite liked it, bit thicker than the UHT version, although I do like that too. I just tend to buy it because it exists, but I'm definitely going to have to try it in hot choc! Oh dear, you lot are such bad influences on me.

    That really made me laugh. I buy the co-op iced buns sometimes even though I feel sick after just one and then have to give them all away

    I've just had a strawberry muffin (ok maybe more than one...) with alpro soya cream. It was nice. I also have made a hot chocolate with the cream and I have to say that I'm probably making it wrong, but it doesn't taste that much different to when I make it with milk, it's just thicker.

    ^ i haven't made hot chocolate with Alpro cream, i always use soya milk, but it's great if you put Soyatoo spray cream on the top

    i tried to make a creamy sauce with the Alpro cream last night; bad idea, it was awful.

    I'm not a fan of the light version, I just get the plain original Alpro (not long life). However it seems like they changed the flavour, I mean what the hell's going on? Now my tea tastes of vanilla. I liked it simply because it had a really neutral flavour before, you could use it in cooking without adding essence of vanilla to 'cheese' sauce or whatever. Does anyone know if this is permanent, or is there another brand that doesn't taste like vanilla, or like stale saliva? Since these seem to be the only two varieties I've come across.

    Just found this on facebook:

    What we do know is that some consumers did not like the "beany" taste that the previous recipe had and also wanted a better "mouthfeel". The changes are designed to address these two issues and we have also added vitamin D to the vitamin mix, which is important for bone heath and also aids the absorption of calcium. Overall we have reduced the sugar content and introduced a more neutral taste.
    We are sorry that this is not to everyone's taste and we will continue to take your feedback on board.

    Suzanne do you have a link? I'd like to add my (negative) feedback as quickly as possible.

    Another person here wanting to know a substitute as I won't be buying Alpro Soya again unless the recipe changes back.

    If you'd like to add a comment to the discussion re Alpro Soya changing their recipe (to a rather sickly vanilla flavour), please go here:

    http://www.facebook.com/alprosoya?v=...71&topic=11930

    If enough people say they're not happy, maybe they'll change the recipe back

    The new recipe is awful (literally sickening) in tea/coffee and on cereal, and can't be used in savoury cooking. The smell and taste of vanilla are quite overpowering.

    That falls into the stale saliva category as far as I'm conerned.
    Had a look at the fb thread- someone's saying sainsbury's own brand soya milk is good.
    I'm really pissed off about this, I'm missing tea- I keep making cups but only drinking half cos unless I chug it down while it's hot enough to burn off my tastebuds that vanilla taste is just rank.
    I'm surprised that Alpro is 'taken aback by the passion shown', this makes me think their board probly drink dairy- how else could you not realise that such a drastic change is gonna affect people? If their milk suddenly tasted of vanilla overnight, in EVERYTHING, I bet they'd bloody notice.

    I've been using it up in hot chocolate, it's not so bad in that but even then, if I wanted vanilla in my hot chocolate I WOULD PUT VANILLA IN MY HOT CHOCOLATE.

    Man, I was gonna make some macaroni 'cheese' today, there's no point now not if it's gonna taste of vanilla.

    This is why I used Alpro not So Good- if I wanted vanilla I wouldn't be buying your soya milk for gods sake, I'd be buying one of the other million brands that make it taste of vanilla.

    I might switch to rice milk- though that's normally too thin and stale-saliva-y for my taste. Might give almond milk a go, though I can't imagine that'd be any good in tea, or savoury dishes.

    Oh my god, I actually could drink just a cup of alpro milk ON ITS OWN until a week ago...

    Shisha, I've just had a message on FB from a lady who says that she's switched to Provamel in a light green carton from health food shops, and that it tastes quite like Alpro Soya used to - got to be worth a try! I miss my cups of tea as well.

    EDIT: Here's the FB protest group - the more people who join, the more seriously they'll take it...

    I'm glad someone else noticed it. I much preferred it the way it was. It was perfect for putting in tea and coffee, now it ruins the flavour of the drink. I guess I'm going to have to change brands. Why must companies do that? Alter a perfectly good product?

    It's also bugging me that they've reduced the amount of B12 per litre (along with, I think, calcium and vit. D). It just seems counter-productive. Any thoughts as to why they'd do this?

    Who knows? But they've lost my business. Once my last 4 bottles are finished, I'm switching to Tesco's own brand. I may write to them to complain.
