    I got three samples and tried one yesterday. It's yum! Not too sweet and not thick at all. I think it'll be a huge success :D

    I think tetras are always best kept in the fridge :p

    We still haven't got a 'launch date' for the Strawberry Silk tetras yet though. The ones I got are just samples sent out to CDCs to try before they become available sometime in September :)

    My fab cdc gave me one of her 3 yesterday and I had it for breaky this morning - it had no hole for the straw!! So I chopped off and end and sucked it up. Really tasty but yeah not as thick as the other 2 and not as fake as the banana... looking forward to adding one a day!

    Tried it yesterday and I like it ..... still would have prefered a less safe choice of flavour - but it will be a hit!

    I've just had it for 'brunch' and it was ok....not as nice as the choc but much nicer than the artificial tasting banana. Nice that it isn't so thick too.
    I wonder if the thickness of the choc one is a secret ploy to make our cheek bones stand out more, with all that sucking lol!!

    Sounds lovely! I would love to have another tetra flavour as I hate the banana and don't like the sachets so pretty much live on choc tetras!

    ok i'm eating it now, first i thought i'd lost my tastebuds , but as i got more into it they came back , not as good as choc , not as thick either , but its trail and error i guess

    i think if you put strawberry and the choc and banana in the freezer say 3 hours and mix them together taking a bit from each it might be nice, so in all the strawberry is ok , nothing to rave about , but thats me

    6 of us tried it yesterday chilled, myself and 2 teenage daughters and customer (Choc Velvet addict now on 1200 plan) and her 2 teenage daughters. Between us, 2 of us like CV and BB, 2 like BB only and 2 like CV only and all of us like the Strawberry shake so a good cross section for testing I thought.


    Verdict: none of us liked it, it didn't smell nice (had it in small glasses as no hole in the sample cartons for straw) no taste of strawberries and had strange aftertaste! However none of us are in ketosis so wondering if that might affect the verdict??

    awww no! I just wanna try it so I can see - the problem is, I buy a month's supply at a time so I don't wanna buy a load and then hate them, but equally if they are really nice and I have only bought one to try, then I don't want a month of not trying them!! Lol!!

    Hopefully my cdc might have a sample for when I see her Wed!
