    Yes, new designs for all the product now :clap:

    There isn't really any difference in the calorie content. It's exactly the same stuff as it was before. Just a change in how the fibre calories are calculated and which now have to be mentioned (which wasn't the case previously).

    It tastes just the same and I'm not worried about 6 cals lol but just thought it was odd it was exactly the same but a change of packaging could add to them lol so thanks KD xx

    Things like that can play on the mind. It's like my OH thinks the chocolates out of celebrations taste different to their big brothers... personally, I don't think they do!

    Seriously though, I drink two choc velvets a day, every day and it definitely tasted differently!! I'll see again later but if it has added calories then there must have been a change to composition or something thus the possibility of it changing flavour slightly?

    The app & cinnamon porridge changed flavour not so long ago...and only a few ppl noticed that!!

    Maybe I just have sensitive taste buds lol x

    It hasn't got added calories....honest:) It's just a change with the labellig requirements. The composition of the drinks is the same

    Because of the new EU regulations, the fibre has to be given a energy value of 2kcals per gram, whereas before it was given 0kcals per gram. There is 3g dietary fibre, so before it wasn't counted, and now it is classed as 6kcals.

    BTW, there's no difference with the labelling of the strawberry tetra because when this one came out, the new labelling was incorporated from the beginning. Now the other two tetras are working in line with this and the shakes and soups will be relabelled later

    But, there is no change in the recipe for the ready made drinks...just the way the calories are calculated :)
