    Argh how grim are the berry bars! I waited all day, started work at 7am and in my zombie state forgot to pack anything, so just got home and had it. Salty and sweet at the same time. Vom!! Got 6 more to get through. It's not gonna be easy! Anyone actually like them??

    I agree! They really are not that nice. I have about 7 to get through and I am dreading them.... May just have them for every meal to get rid of them! ....if I'm strong enough...

    I freeze them and the chocolate bars, for some reason they do taste better frozen.

    Gonna attempt the choc one tomorrow. I'll try and slip it in the freezer at work. I doubt anyone would scoff it before my lunch time!
    But on a brighter note the crunchy bars are delish! I particularly enjoyed choc orange. It filled me up nicely too. :)

    Now getting used to the berry bars making things a lot easier. 2 shakes and a bar a day is how I'm rolling!

    Really? I think I need to start freezing mine because I am really struggling with them. To tell the truth I think I have only have 3 out of the box because I am so reluctant... I feel inspired so I will give them another chance tomorrow :)

    How bizarre! Made up you now love them tho! I can't stand them, the orange ones are my fav, however I normally hate choc orange! xx

    I tried my first berry bar today. Thought it was fine. I put it in the fridge an it came out quite chewy and substantial. Sweet though!

    Oh good god, it has just taken me all afternoon to eat my 1st red berry bar. Had some, put rest in fridge. Tried again, put rest in freezer. Have finally finished it (got hubby and daughter to try a bite too) Have to say I feel rather sick and have another 49 to go :(

    Definitely prefer the choc orange and raisin crunchy bars but am hoping I will grow to like them at least!

    Remember hating the carbonara when I first tried it and now I have it every eve for tea so there is hope lol x

    There is hope! It grew on me, so much that I now have 50. Yum.
    And I loved the carbonara 1st and now I hate it. Funny how tastes differ so.

    Yep, carbonara is now my least favourite too. Berry bars I like but they are very sweet.

    It's strange how in real eating I'm a very savoury person but whenever I do a food replacement diet I end up on 3 sweet products a day and end up craving and dreaming of cakes and chocolate.

    It's such a relief to hear they're growing on anyone.. I only bought 5, luckily enough variety to only need one every 6 days but my first one last week made me want to be sick!!

    Trying second one today, feel ready for the challenge. Fingers crossed now I'm on day 10 my exante tastebuds will have kicked in!

    Wish me luck :)

    Funny really as my problem when eating is chocolate (could eat it as 3 meals a day) but on shakes I have a real dislike to anything chocolate.
    Going to pop some bars into the freezer this eve and try to pluck up the courage in a few days to try another lol x

    I don't mind tbe chocolate shakes but cos I mix mine with way more water they don't even taste of chocolate. Haha!
    Good luck with getting through the berry ones. They are much better cold. I left mine in my bag yesterday and it was all warm and squishy when I came to eat it!

    Replying a bit late but berry bar was soooo much better second time around! I actually enjoyed it until the last couple of mouthfuls.

    Need to remember to put it in the fridge next time as forgot last week.

    Ho hum! Ah I love the chocolate shakes! Have them hot sometimes and tastes like rich creamy hot chocolate :)

    I've got majorly sweet taste buds though..
