sorry for the delay. i was all set to upload this episode nearly 2 weeks ago, but the laptop decided to take a nose dive. we hadn’t backed up any of our data, so i was a bit freaked out, since there were 4 episodes that have already been recorded, but not processed and uploaded. luckily it was only a logic board, and the hard drive was unscathed. *exhales* we purchased an external hard drive, so if anything happens again between recording date and upload date, all will be hunky-dory.  (details and a picture if you’re interested)

here is a link to the ingredient lists of each soymilk at the time of recording.  (we’re missing 2, so we’ll try our hardest to get that list up ASAP)

and here is a link to the call for brands for the eventual 2nd episode of soymilk.  if you know of a brand that hasn’t been mentioned, please leave a comment and let us know.

New brands which will be tasted:

ZenSoy, Organic Valley, Pacific, Pearl, Wildwood, Brighton Falls, Mogami

International brands?  (it’s a possibility)
