    Salt

    I'm just wondering I have found in some of my shakes grains of salt at the bottom think it is mostly the cookies and cream one but think it's been in others! I just made a cookie thing out of a cookies and cream shake and it's so salty
    Is it so suppose to have a lot of salt? I really dont like salt and so it makes me heave when the actual taste of the shake minus the salt are drinkable :/ x

    They tried a new manufacturer who couldn't find a way to mask the salt. It's a new EU directive that says that it has to be there. They're taking it to a different manufacturer though so saltiness will be gone! That was just the cookies and cream, toffee and raspberry shakes.

    Lose 1stone

    Lose 18lbs

    Worth trying to strain it maybe? Then you'd get the full shake.

    I just had my first raspberry shake and was really taken aback by the last salty mouthful....yuck!! Really put me off. I loved the rest of it though, and have got 6 more, so am going to have to try and forget it happened! Glad to hear they seem to have found a solution

    I don't mind it to be honest-but to be fair, it's only in the last mouthful, so why not just leave the last bit! Lol
