    I got bars today :) decided to give em a try, as struggle to force down shakes/mousses in the evening (and always end up leaving at least 2 shakes to have in an evening!).

    So right now I am working my way through a delicious chocolate orange CD bar...and my god its hard work!!!!! Its taking me FOREVER to finish it!!! I have about an inch left and I am STUFFED! lol.

    Got me one of each flavour bar to try this week :)

    I tried the chocolate one today for the first time and loved that! I have some orange I haven't tried them yet, I will tomorrow. With a bit of imagination could it pass as a Terry Chocolate orange?

    I start Week 3 tomorrow and I can not wait to have a bar soon. I am 100% commited to this diet but I need something different. I have heard they do not suit some people, probably me (!!), so I will see how I go and have 1 every so often.

    love the bars, prob couldn't do this diet without them!
    i live the caramel and toffe flavours.
    i put mine in the freezer, they dont freeze, but go really hard and chewy so takes even longer to eat, i cut them into smallish peices and have them in the evening while i'm watching telly - delish! x

    When i last did CD, i used to break my CD bars into 3 pieces, a large peice and 2 small pieces to snack on. I guess you could cut them into several pieces and snack on them throughout the day. They are so convienent (sp?) if you have to travel alot! Happy chewing :) xx

    When i get them i try and have half a nite, and half a tetra/shake/etc. Peoples carb tolerance r different, which is why SOME people find the bars can effect weight loss. But the cranberry and peanut have the same carbs as packs, so there ok, the other bars r a bit higher in carbs. But they can be a real life saver if ure fond of the odd sweet treat!! lol i like my peanut/cranberry in the microwave slightly melting! x x x

    I always used to make sure i had a CD bar when i was invited to the cinema. That way i could have a nice treat whilst watching the film without wanting or being tempted by popcorn and nachos. I would have my bottle of water on hand too, lol. xx

    for the cinema last time i froze a choc tetra and then sliced around the top with a kitchen knife without removing the bit i sliced and then wrapped it in cling film. the when i got in the cinema i just unwrapped it. peeled off the top bit i sliced off and sat there eating ice cream in the cinema. it was lovely :D

    Bish Bosh you are right, they taste nothing like Terrys Choc Orange, but they are nice anyway. Prefer the chocolate one.
