I was deathly allergic to cows' milk as a child. I therefore never developed a taste for it. Tastes nasty to me, even now. Of course, I don't drink it - but it still gives a sort of "funky" taste to anything I might add it to.
Almond and coconut milks I *love*! I don't drink them straight up, though. I use them with something. You can get the vanilla versions, or you can add some flavorings. I love DaVinci™ syrups. They come in an incredible array of flavors, and I use them in vanilla drinks (like protein shakes, et al) a lot. A tiny bit packs a lot of flavor.
I agree that different brands do make a difference. I buy some from groceries which market their own brands when I can, since they're less expensive. But try some of the others. You might find you like another brand better.
I avoid soy anything at every opportunity. I already get too much soy in forms I can't even identify from other foods. From my research, and many comments around the 'net, soy is a Very Bad Thing, unless it's fermented. Just isn't worth it to me, since I have other options.
I hope you can find an almond or coconut milk you like!
