For a college student who doesn’t do coffee, gluten, or dairy, I seem to find myself at Starbucks frequently to work on group projects and meet up with friends. Although they have a few safe options (bottled water and herbal tea), I often find myself pining for one of their signature blended beverages, all of which are either unsafe for me or severely prone to cross-contamination.
Luckily, the nut milk masterminds at Silk have a new product out that is the perfect answer for your 3:00 pm cravings for something smooth and sweet to perk up the afternoon. Enter Nutchello.
In three coffeehouse inspired flavors, Nutchello is perfect served as is for an indulgent treat. Because I am not a coconut fan, I skipped toasted coconut and cashew beverage but definitely brought home a bottle each of the caramel almond and cashew as well as the rich dark chocolate and walnuts to review. Hoping that the drinks would fill the void of not being able to have other fancy coffee drinks, I couldn’t wait to put them to the test.
Before putting the two head to head, let’s take a closer look at the amazing attributes of the Nutchello line. All of the beverages are gluten, dairy, soy, and carrageenan-free. Of course nuts are used, so those who cannot have nuts, steer clear of these products. All the drinks are non-GMO and free from artificial ingredients. While the drinks are sweetened, note that their sugar contents are much lower than their coffeehouse counterparts or baked goods- rendering them a good choice to satisfy your sweet tooth.
Caramel Almonds + Cashews
Rich Dark Chocolate + Walnuts
Overall, I really liked Silk’s new Nutchello flavors. While I won’t always have a bottle in my fridge, it’ll be the perfect drink to buy this coming summer when warm temperatures increase my desire for cold coffeehouse drinks. Delicious on their own, they are a perfect canvas for crafting custom brews to satisfy your coffee, caffeine, or sweets cravings.
I found the drinks at my local Weis Market in Towson. Read more about Nutchello and find Silk’s product locator over on their website here.
