    So I've rung my CD lady and told her I cant drink the strawberry tetras as they make me feel sick. As this was what I was having as my last 'meal' I'm thinkong of replacing them with a soup. Are there any board favourites? Dont want to jump out of the frying pan in to the fire:sigh:

    Everyone has different preferences but I liked the spicey tomato, although I don't get many soups as I prefer the shakes. Have you tried the tetras frozen? It make them less sickly sweet
    (Cheese & broccoli seems to be majorly disliked)

    Thanks for the heads up, I'll avoid the cheese and broccoli. I will try freezing some of my tetras though : )

    I like leek and potato (actually tastes like its namesake) and oriental chilli (tastes like curry pot rice) hope this helps my dear. I think we all find our favourites after a while mine is hot choc mint yum yum xxx

    Potato and leek is nice - its tastes for all the world like a hot cup (not exactly a rave review but it will give you the idea).

    I hate the broccoli and cheese :jelous: but have had some in an 'emergency'. it may be an acquired taste - acquired that is as a result of dire hunger!

    You'll just have to 'sip them and see' - get it?! There's not a lot to suck on SS!! :D:D

    I love the vegetable soup, have gone off all the others, no doubt i will have them again, just got a bit sick of them. On the other hand, i am addicted to the chocolate tetras, frozen, from the fridge, room temp or with hot water, they are gorgeous. Hope you find a soup that you like.

    Chicken and mushroom is yum, so is spicy tomato - but that is rather sweeter so some people don't like it.
    One thing i do is split the sachets. Half a sachet of soup made up in an "average" coffee mug is perfect - i think that's a bit thinner than making them up with the suggested amount of water.
    Also i make ALL the soups the way they suggest doing the tomato one - i.e. make it to a paste with a splash of cold water - i use a swizzle mixer like the one Nigella raves about (kind of a hooped end with a spring coil all the way round it) - mix it really thoroughly as a paste, then add the hot water slowly mixing all the time.

    good luck

    I hate the leek and potato and the cheese and broccoli - yyyuuuukkkk.

    The only soups I eat are Vegetable, Chicken and Mushroom and Oriental Chilli. Those three are the nicest ones in my opinion.

    I agree with making them thinner than the pack suggests, otherwise I found them a little powdery.

    I used to like chicken and mushroom, mushroom, leek and potato... think that was it. Unfortunately I have gone completely off them...

    When I started CD I liked everything, gradually though I've become more and more fussy, and now only have shakes, a few porridge and the bars.

    I'm not sure whether this is common, or I'm just very strange lol.

    Good luck!

    The spicy tomato one was giving me a stomach ache for some reason :(

    I usually have the chicken and mushroom and leek and potato - but as others have said, it's best to add a little more water than they suggest, it makes it a bit thinner but doesn't taste powdery.

    I've not been brave enough to try any others yet.
