    I have tried the Broccoli and Cheese and the Mushroom, but they made me gag! I couldnt do it.
    I have the Chilli one to try, if that is horrid too I think Ill swap the others for shakes, I actually really liked the Cappucino one!

    I did not like any of the soups at all left an awful taste in my mouth.

    I like the porridge, the strawberry & banana shakes and have the chocolate mint like a hot chocolate.

    I have tried the bar's and have to say they are ok not something I would have too often but suppose they are good to put in your bag for a day out:D

    It's weird how people are so different - I love all the soups! I usually put a pinch of cayenne pepper and/or parsley in though, to liven them up. I have all my shakes hot, with a sprinkling of cinnamon or nutmeg, depending on the shake (but I also love mousses too). Those additions are all OK btw. :)

    To anybody new and/or on SS reading this, we are NOT allowed to make the soups and shakes into anything other than what they are (e.g. 'crisps' and 'muffins') - there is a sticky about this clearly warning what the dangers are, and how head office have said don't do it! (You change the chemical composition of the meal and lose half the nutrients - this diet is so low-calorie that we need all the goodness we can get! :eek:)

    I like the leek and potato, veg and chilli

    The tomato one was way too sweet for me. The broccolli one (and I like that soup normally) on CD was gag-tastic.

    Yet some peeps love it

    No accounting for taste eh?

    Mandy, wow.......your weight loss is fantastic and its so great to read that you have kept it off for so long. How do you do it? I am still a couple of stone away from target but am now starting to think about how I will cope with maintenance. I notice you actually have gone 20lbs lower than your original goal - was there a reason for this? Anyway hope you don't mind me asking all these questions I would love to know your secret to success!!

    I'm going to go lower than my target weight too - I set it myself, but now I'm looking at weight charts and so on, I think I could go at least half a stone lower. My CDC says there's no real reason why people shouldn't be able to weigh what they weighed when they were 21, so that's what I'm aiming for. :)

    I think most people don't like the soups, though of course everybody has different tastes!

    The first time I had chicken soup I liked it.. but ever since it made me wretch, so i just stick to the shakes. This diet is hard enough without having to force yourself to have things you dont like. If you only like chocolate, then get 21 chocolates!

    I like the soups, I add curry powder to oriental chilli, and cumin to chicken and mushroom. But I do always have my shakes hot.x

    With the exception of spicey tomato, I find the soups to be pretty vile. The leek and potato I hated right from the first sip. The others I hated on the 2nd meal.

    Can't wait for next week, when I can introduce bars.
