Silk vs ripple half and half side by side vegan creamers for coffee

Silk vs. Ripple Half and Half (Video Review)

Vegan Half and Half is starting to become easier to find. Half and half is creamier milk with more fat content, but it doesn’t contain all that sugar that is in creamers. After trying the Silk one and falling in love with it… I noticed the Ripple half and half on the shelves so I was super curious about which is better! In this video I’ll compare Silk vs. Ripple Half and Half so you can see the differences for yourself before you purchase.

Silk vs. Ripple Half and Half Verdict

Overall, I like Silk Half and Half more because I find it creamier. However, both are really really good options! Ripple was even better than expected. Here are some specifics from my comparison:

  • Lightness: Ripple seems to lighten the coffee slightly more in terms of color than Silk. Silk still lightens it a lot but surprisingly Ripple lightened it even more.
  • Creaminess: Silk definitely has a creamier mouth feel than Ripple, but Ripple still does elevate the coffee nicely.
  • Flavor: Again silk has more of a creamy and I’d say almost very very lightly buttery flavor that marries with the coffee beautifully. Ripple doesn’t have much of a strong flavor but it gives just a distant tinge of sweetness which is nice.
  • Calories: Silk half and half has 15 calories per Tablespoon and Ripple half and half has 17.5 calories per Tablespoon.
  • Sugar: Silk half and half contains 0 g of sugar and Ripple half and half contains less than 1 gram of sugar.
  • Silk Half and Half Ingredients: Coconutmilk (Filtered Water, Coconut Cream), Oatmilk (Filtered Water, Whole Oat Flour), Organic Coconut Oil, Faba Bean Protein, Baking Soda, Natural Flavor, Gellan Gum. CONTAINS COCONUT.
  • Ripple Half and Half Ingredients: Water, Sunflower Oil, Pea Protein, Organic Cane Sugar, Contains less than 1% of Sea Salt, Sunflower Lecithin, Tricalcium Phosphate, Natural Flavor, Acacia Gum, Guar Gum, Gellan Gum.

Peet's vegan breakfast sandwich after two bites with vegan cheese, beyond sausage, and just egg.

Peet’s Vegan Breakfast Sandwich Review

I was so excited that Peet’s launched a fully plant-based breakfast sandwich. Peet’s vegan breakfast sandwich consists of an everything bagel thin, a slice of vegan cheddar cheese, Beyond sausage and Just Egg. I drove over to the Peet’s Coffee location in Solana Beach, California on a cloudy day to try this vegan delight.

To start, the Peet’s plant-based breakfast sandwich was even better than I thought. Of course it’s not like a big ooey gooey egg, cheese and sausage from your corner deli, but as far an on-the-go breakfast sandwiches it’s right in line with other fast food breakfast sandwiches as far as I can remember (Starbucks, Dunkin Donuts, Burger King, etc). I haven’t had a convenient breakfast sandwich in over 16 years so I’m super grateful to Peet’s for stepping up to the [vegan] plate when all the other places have not.

Peet’s Vegan Breakfast Sandwich Review

The overall sandwich was more flavorful and juicy than I expected. Let me break it down by ingredient:

The bread. To start, the sandwich bread is a flavorsome, lightly toasted everything bagel thin with sesame and poppy seeds. A lot of times bagel thins can be quite bland but this one was not — it lent itself perfectly to the sandwich.

The vegan cheese. The non-dairy cheddar worked perfectly in this sandwich. It is just one slice but when melted one slice goes a long way. The cheese was melted beautifully over the sausage and pulled the sandwich together making it ooey gooey (and combatting any potential dryness). We all know cheese takes anything to the next level, and this sandwich is no exception.

The Beyond sausage. Their preparation of Beyond breakfast sausage was great. They don’t dry it out at all, they retain its juiciness so it gives a very scrumptious, satiating feeling to the whole sandwich. And of course, the flavors in the Beyond sausage are on point — there is such an explosion of savory flavor.

The Just Egg. Just Egg is very impressive. This plant-based egg, made with mung beans, is not too flavorful, but gives a nice fluffy eggy consistency to compliment the flavorful sausage and cheese. It brings all the right textures that you would expect in a breakfast sandwich.

In conclusion, each element of Peet’s vegan breakfast sandwich works perfectly together to provide a satisfying on-the-go option for vegans and anyone looking to reduce their impact on the planet. It is currently priced at $5.95 and I paired mine with a creamy oat milk vanilla latte. Thank you Peet’s for adding this option to your menu!
