Almond milk V Oat milk?

There's always so many flavoured almond milk drinks to choose from isn't there? I love using unsweetened almond milk in my porridge, I just can't put it in my tea yet... eek! But I spotted these in the dairy section in Tesco and wondered how big of a difference there was between oat and almond milk... The little fermented drinks were just beside them, just added in case someone fancied them! Anyone an Alpro fan like me? x
