    I was just wondering whether people got a large range of flavours or whether they got the same things for each day. i used to get a massive variety of flavours. and i do have a bit of a stock pile of the odd one from when i was ill, but these days i want a porridge, a bar, and then either a chicken soup or a chocolate tetra. went to buy my week's worth last night and that's what i got. i thought it would be really dull having the same thing every day but actually it seems better having the same thing to look forward to every day if that makes sense?

    just wondering how other people do it...

    As I've just started I've gotten 1 or two of everything, though I can see already that there will only be a few ones I actually want to keep on having.

    I think that my format's going to be
    Strawberry shake breakfast
    Bar lunch (not sure of flavours yet as only on day 2)
    Banana or another Strawberry shake dinner
    Chocolate shake as 8pm "treat"

    I'll just decide what to actually make with those pack on the day, muffins, crisps, popadoms, gooey-cakey-thingies, hot, cold..... how knows what I'll fancy!

    Nah, I've got my three down to a fine art now. Porridge every morning (although I do change the flavouring I add), Chocolate Mint shake for lunch (gonna try it hot now as it is soo cold), and half a bar with my afternoon coffee and the other half with my evening coffee. I get 4 caramel bars and 4 peanut bars (I have an extra one for a weigh day treat!).

    Going to try the Orange bar this week as there are a couple of people raving about it on here and it is the only one I haven't tried.

    Never fancied the soups. But I must admit there is a fantastic range available and some times I am torn when choosing my bars for the week.

    i can stomach them but i just don't want them... it's really weird. i went through a phase of really loving the tomato soup and now i'm just so meh about it...

    loved the vanilla hot as it was like custard and now the thought of hot shakes other than tetra with hot water make me shudder... so odd!!

    i didn't have the orange bar for ages as i thought it would be gross and when i finally did it tasted like a jaffa cake... with a little imagination and several weeks on cd in any case, so you'll be sorted, ha.

    I like a few of the products - I have my first helping at lunchtime - usually either a caramel, chocolate or orange bar (love the orange). Then when I get home, a soup - vegetable is my favourite, but I'll have oriental, leek & potato, chicken & Mushroom. Then either a vanilla (fav), choc, mint choc, strawberry, banana. At the weekend I change slightly and have a porridge, soup and the tetra - frozen. Yumm.

    that seems to be what i've ended up doing. i also seem to drink a lot of coffee.... but i did before. i probably appreciate it a bit more now as it keeps me going that little bit longer. i really need to bring my bouillon in tomorrow as i'm working late again then. but i forget it every day. i think i need two so i can have one at work and one at home...

    if she doesn't have any ask her to order it. they have to have a supply of everything. they can't not give you something just because they haven't thought to buy it in time... they get next day delivery and can post it out. my cdc offered to do this for me the one time she was caught short because everyone wanted chocolate tetras in the same day, ha.
