The first time I bought Soyatoo vegan whipped cream, I was greatly disappointed. After only about two tablespoons of whipped cream, the can ran out of air pressure and stopped working. I paid $5.99 for that can, at a sale price. Since it was still on sale for $5.99 about a month later, I decided to give this product one more try. This second attempt came just in time to top off the last of my homemade vegan hot chocolate mix of the winter season. So far this can is holding up more than the last. I think the problem with the first can is a design flaw in the product. If the whipped cream is not room temperature, it is too thick to move out of the can and, therefore, only nitrous oxide escapes. As for flavour, the product is a great substitute for non-vegan whipped cream. You can definitely notice the soy flavour, but the texture and appearance is identical to your tradition canned whip. My favourite thing about this product is that you regain the experience of shaking and expelling whipped cream from a can (and into your mouth). There is a Rice Whip version, which I have not yet tried, for those looking for an alternative to soy.
The whip cream is highly sensitive to temperatures. Too cold and it won’t come out and will waste the nitrous oxide, too warm and it’s a liquid. Despite these flaws, Soyatoo is the only vegan whipped cream from a can that I have had, and it is a pleasure to relive old desserts and memories.
