I stopped using the powder a while back and only use the RTDs now. I enjoy the texture/mouthfeel of all the flavours, but have different thoughts on the flavours themselves.
Vanilla - 2/5 - It tastes okay, but it’s quite strange and synthetic. Feels like it’s sort of in the ballpark for vanilla but has a slight chemical taste which isn’t unpleasant. Just odd.
Chocolate - 4/5 - Tastes quite indulgent, an above-average chocolate milkshake.
Berry - 3/5 - Tart and has a bit of an acidic taste (whether that’s just my mind playing tricks on me I don’t know). It’s berry for sure. Firmly average.
Banana - 4/5 - If I had to pick, this would be my favourite out of all the RTDs. Still a little artificial in taste but pleasant and refreshing.
Strawberries & Cream - 1/5 - The worst flavour of the entire RTD range including 1.0. Tastes overly-synthetic and sickly, like a cheap artificial strawberry yogurt.
Salted Caramel - 4/5 - One of the better v 2.0 flavours. Has a nice balance of sweetness and savoury.
Cinnamon Swirl - 2/5 - The one I was looking to trying the most. It’s okay-ish. Certainly tastes of cinnamon but not the best cinnamon flavouring I’ve tasted. This tastes closer to a teaspoon of cinnamon powder. Think it would work much better paired with something sharper to offset the bitterness. Apple Pie/Apple & Cinnamon would be great.
Iced Coffee Caramel - 4/5 - Again, one of the better v 2.0 flavours. Glad it has a strong coffee taste and the caramel makes it taste quite silky.
- The packaging is great.
- Please lower the saturated fats in each bottle. I read that these were increased to provide a better mouthfeel/experience, but in all honesty I’d take a slight trade off to decrease the sat fats to under 1.5g per bottle. At the very least under 2g. If I could make one request, this would be it. It’s simply too high for something marketed towards the health/nutrition market.
- More flavours! Mentioned this in another post, but I’d love to see more variety. Maybe you could drop some of the weaker sellers and introduce a new v3.0
