Recently got a few flavour boosts, of which the new strawberry was one of them. Upon opening the packet to have a quick smell, I was assaulted by a vile chemical stench that permeated the entire flat for a few minutes. Can’t describe the smell other than to say it makes me physically recoil. Had a taste of it today and, while not as bad as it smells, still tastes pretty bad. Also doesn’t taste anything like strawberry.
Don’t know what happened to your processes between the new version and the older version (which I still have some of and it tastes good). For reference, the new stuff is from batch 4079 and the old is 3062.
Gonna have to either chuck or give away the new stuff.
