    I actually like the malty taste and prefer it to the old chocolate shake even. it doesnt bother me that its not so chocolatey. that may be though as I prefer my shakes hot and so the malty taste lends it self more to a hot chocolate and malty drink. so many of the oacks get adjusted over time its just how it is. after a while people either take to the taste, put it aside to try again later, or resolve never to have again and move onto other choices. Most weeks now I get a variety of packs and have one of every pack in my mix. doubling up on a couple of them. The only thing i'm not so into and have tried periodically ever so often, is the peanut bar and also not so keen on the cranberry and raspberry bar. oh - and the shakes i have been having i do find send me to the toilet more often than not. which having not long ago had the experience of constipation appearing after months on the plan for some reason, it's a nice welcome change that the shake packs are making movement so easy. TMI? lol. :-)

    Really don't like the chocolate shake which supprised me as I adore chocolate. I've tried it hot,cold, with coffee and mixed with porridge to no avail. Last time I had it it really upset my tum so not missing it. Love the vanilla esp with coffee, yum.
    Don't mind how long it takes, Its coming off!

    I much preferred the old chocolate shake, now vanilla is my favourite. I cope with the new choc if i adda good pinch of cinnamon and a teaspoon of instant coffee, or sometimes mix together a chocolate and a banna shake then split out over two meals. Another suggestion I picked up on here was make some mint tea and let go cold and mix in to make a chocmint shake or add some of the orange falvouring to make choco orange. Adds variety and makes the choc one more drinkable but even so I do not get it so often now.

    I totally agree, for my first week i took 7 choccy shakes thinking they would be a safe choice, i tried hot and cold and just not for me. I never was a fan of ovaltine, 5 got exchanged for other packs :-)
