    Horrible Red Berry & Chocolate meal bars idea!!!!

    Hi, I bought the shake & bar bumper pack from Exante but didn't realise that the Red Berry & Double chocolate bars would be included....I tried both but I really can't stand either. The chocolate one tastes doughy and nothing like chocolate.

    I didn't want to waste them so i decided to try mixing the red berry bar with a vanilla shake.

    1/2 red berry bar
    1/2 vanilla shake
    150ml water (depends how thick you like it, I also add a few cubes of ice)

    I put it all in my blender & hey presto I ended up with a refreshing berry & vanilla shake!

    I am going to try the chocolate tomorrow. I might try it with the vanilla shake, the chocolate shake to have it double doubley chocolatey and I think I'll try the chocolate with the banana shake too. yum yum....can't wait. I was so disappointed with the bars but the shake made it quite nice.

    I'll keep you all posted x

    I had a berry bar taster omg it was awful! I love sweet things but this was sickly sweet and salty all in the same mouthful. I genuinely thought it was going to taste like a slim fast bar but what a disappointment! Thank goodness I only had one!

    I bought a load of the berry and chocolate bars and ended up throwing them out-I just couldn't face them! The chocolate orange bars are so good though!

    It's not recommended but I heat my double chocolate bars up in the microwave for 20 seconds - they taste so different, and nicer!

    Go in shop and not have to dive straight to the back of the rail to find my size.

    Ugh oh my word they are so disgusting it's unbelievable. What I don't understand is why the exante stuff is so nasty! Like 200 calories is a fair bit to work with :-/
