Califia Farms is a local Californian company, using nuts and fruits grown in the area to make their products. The product line is all beverages: few citrus juices (orange, lemonade, lemon-lime aid), a slew of almond milks, and cold brew iced coffee (with almond milk). All the almonds are grown in California.
|Original Almond Milk.|
Since it was sweetened, it is sweeter than their unsweetened variety, but since it has no other ingredients, it is less flavorful than the vanilla.
I can't see why I'd want to just drink it plain, and I found the almond flavor overwhelming when used for cereal. It worked fine in tea and coffee however, and I have seen an increasing number of Bay Area coffee shops using it for their drinks.
|Unsweetened Almond Milk.|
I didn't care for this, as I mostly didn't know what use it had in my life. It wasn't sweet, so I didn't enjoy drinking it on its own. And like the original, I thought the almond flavor was too strong to use with cereal. So, overall, I just didn't have a purpose for it. It was fine to use in my tea.

|Holiday Nog Almond Milk.|
The nog was thick, like the vanilla. Sweetened. It didn't have a strong almond flavor like the plain versions, but I really couldn't identify what the flavor was. I don't think I liked it. It certainly wasn't classic nog flavor, and it tasted somewhat chemically. Sadness. I really wanted to like this.
I did find it good to mix into assorted tea, as it turned everything sorta into a chai-spiced drink.
