    So far, caramel and cranberry have made me feel sick after and taste a little like snot to me.

    I'm going to try the toffee, peanut and orange next 3 days, if not I'm going to contact my CD and exchange them for shakes.

    Ew! Just EW!

    Yeah, I got them in the fridge too hun. Doesn't seem to be helping. But I've got two weeks worth. So if I don't like them, I'll have to exchange :(

    In every diet where there were bars I always found them dissappointing in taste. It's why I also skipped them on CD and just went for the shakes and porridge.

    I am not over keen on them, but I pop them in the freezer in about 30 pieces and that makes them a bit more bareable.

    Is a case of I want something to chew lol so I put up with them

    Peanut one is quite nice, but I like the cranberry one too

    It's always surprising that there are such divided opinions on the bars - I did all of my SS with Peanut bars - sometimes 2 a day and I loved them (and miss them!), yet others think they are the devil's own so it really is an individual thing but good on you for giving them all a go. Hope you find one that agrees with you as they do make for a bit of variety

    Hiya Numnums

    I tried them all last week except cranberry and don't like them - can feel/taste the powdery mix coming through after few secs of chewing! I had to go back and swap mine halfway through week - am sticking to the shakes :) x

    Caramel's horrible. :) Weirdest taste in the world. But the malt toffee one's better. It took me quite a while to like cranberry, but oddly enough, I do now.

    The peanut one is very... peanutty. And I quite like chocolate orange.

    None of them are going to taste anything like Cadburys though, I'm afraid. I guess it's all the vitamins and minerals they have to add to make them meal replacements, rather chocolate bars, sigh.

    Still, good job we don't all like the same flavours, otherwise our CDCs would never have enough in stock!

    How's 810 going, by the way?

    810 is fine except I keep falling off the rails. I just can't seem to stick to it 100% and I really really want to shift this weight.

    I have just had my lunch now and I had a bar... I had the peanut crunch one for the first time.

    I loved it... reminded me of Peanut Brittle yummy... :D

    heh - probably TMI, but I always found the cranberry ones to umm 'help things along' if I hadnt had a 'movement' for a little while :eek:

    I quite liked them though, those and the chocolate ones nom nom !

    Only shakes, but you can have the porridge and tetra packs (they come in Chocolate, Banana and Strawberry - personally I think the Chocolate ones are LUSH).

    After 2 weeks you can have the water flavours and the bars. :)
