    Started yesterday and so far I've tried spicy tom and oriental chilli soup, mango, choc and fruits of the forest shakes, and the porridge are all horrible. Some of them actually made me want to vomit when i was having them :( Thought the choc one would be ok but it was nasty. Tried the choc mint today though and success. I liked it. Need to go and change some of my packs. Consultant said I can have some bars as I'm having trouble.
    Just scared that I'm only going to like 3 or 4 things and I'm stuck with them.
    This happened when I did lighter life a few years back. Only had choc shakes and veg soup every day.
    Anyone else struggle with the taste?
    On a plus note, 3 litres of water today :D

    Mind over matter hun. We do this because of the results not because they taste fabulous lol

    My mom tried an exante choc shake I had and she said she "didn't like the taste or consistency", I think she was expecting liquid cadburys lol

    Keep focused at least until your first weigh in hun, that'll spur you on loads :)

    Day 2 for me too! not so bad once I'd stopped expecting take away Indian in a packet. I just tell myself it's the only way this is going to work, having done cwp before though I can tell they've improved the flavours :)

    Hi All, I'm also on day 2 and having trouble with the taste of the products :-(

    So far I've had 2 flavours of porridge which were inedible and a Spicy Tomato soup today which I couldn't even finish it was so bad!

    Luckily both shakes I've tried (cappuccino and mint choc) we're delicious! Going to swap the porridge tomorrow but worried il get bored on just shakes.

    Anyone recommend anything that tastes nice?

    I had the same problems as you. Try the leek and potato soup. It's nice.

    I'm on day 2, and my CDC said a lot of people begin by trying a variety of flavours, but gradually settle on 3 or 4, so not liking many won't necessarily be a problem.

    I love the original porridge. I would eat it even if I wasn't trying to lose weight! I don't like the other flavours.

    Haven't tried the soups yet but have not seen a single person saying they like the tomato one!

    The only shakes I really like are strawberry, banana and butterscotch, but I can cope with most of them (except mint choc and orange choc).

    Has anyone had the rice pudding? I've got one but haven't had it yet. Going to put leek and potato soup on the list for next week - that sounds quite nice.

    Snap LizzRob! Love that soup, also the chicken & mushroom. I alternate between those 2 as find the other too powdery

    Lol crazy creatures aren't we, back in my 'eat what I like' days having the same things daily or even weekly used to bore me to death. Now I enjoy not having to think about it & don't care that I'm having the same things day in day out

    I have

    Shakes: banana, cappuccino, strawberry and butterscotch
    Soup: chicken and mush, and oriental chilli
    Porridge: apple and cinnamon
    Bars: peanut.

    So all of 8 products and I rotate them without thought! It's funny how little I care now as well

    I guess I might be the exception that proves the rule. The only things I don't like are the tomato soup, the mango shake and the apple and cinnamon porridge.

    I like everything else. Including the rice pud which I know divides opinion. You have to leave it for at least 15 minutes before microwaving else you end up with slightly crunchy rice!

    Some shakes I like warm such as chocolate ones and others like the fruit ones I prefer cold. I like sticking the odd tetra in the freezer for a couple of hours for ice cream too. I gave everything a go and get distressed if I get short on options now as I like the choice.

    Still I have my absolute favourites too. Like the rice pud, maple and pecan porridge, peanut bar, cranberry bar and the malt toffee bar, as for shakes I like the banana and strawberry best I think.

    But I do love that Cambridge has so much choice. Now I'm starting to work up the steps I am distressed as I have to cut out a product a day!!! The issue is I like my porridge in the morning and my shake or rice pud at lunch and my bar or ice cream tetra in the evening. Which one do I drop? That has been such a hard decision I still bought a random range of things and am testing out the options.
