    ..................Bleurgh!!

    I definitely wasn't keen, I found it to be very rich and sickly, and was so thick I had to really suck to get any of it!

    So, no more chocolate Tetra's for me, am out Sat and Sun next weekend and think I'll be asking for a couple of bars to cover me!

    Hee hee! They take some getting used to straight from the carton. But they are yummy topped up with hot water and a teaspoon of coffee! :D

    Couldn't agree more, they really are horrible, I thought it was so bad that I had to throw the Chocolate Tetra away!!! I love the Chocolate shake though!! XXX

    Camilla, I am Norfolk born and bred, not living there now though!

    I did have a Banana one as a back up in my bag but figured it would be equally disgusting, and as the chocolate one was already open and in my mouth I may as well continue, however, lesson learned, no more tetra's for Jan!

    When I first had a choc tetra I found it fairly sickly, but after a few I love them :D

    Just goes to show how different everyone is!
    I am re-starting on Tuesday and am planning on getting tetra's for when I am at work to make it easier. Hope I like them! lol

    To me that slightly defeats the object of having them, if you have to empty them out and then top them up with water. I thought they were supposed to be connveinient!!!
    Shouldn't really comment as I haven't tried them, yet.

    Well I must admit during my first major stint on CD I would take the tetras to work. I have huge mugs, so would empty them in, top up with hot water and add coffee - absolutely blissful, very filling, and no one thought anything of it. None of my colleagues knew I was doing CD the whole 5 months I was on it :eek: But yeah, they are very convenient for when you're on the run! :)

    I'm gonna try putting the chocolate tetra in the freezer now. I just take them out with me as they're easier than taking packet. I find I can only stomach the shakes when mixed with a blender, they're too lumpy otherwise.

    Hi DQ, I do this also, I find them great, and if anyone asks me I just say, oh they're soya flavoured milk, and everyone leaves me to get on with it. I freeze them sometimes too as a special treat at the weekends, but even now I can't just pop the straw in and drink them straight...yugh

    i love the banana one - yummy, not too keen on choc things so havent tried the choc one.

    have you made them into lollys?
    they are SO good. i bought some smallish moulds, and one carton fits into 4 lollys!
    so i have 2 "cd meals" in the day, and then have 1/2 a bar and 2 lollys in the evening while i'm whatching telly and feel like i'm having a good old munch!! x

    I empty mine into a pudding bowl, freeze to ice cream, then chop half a bar up (peanut crunch works well) and sprinkle over the top like an ice cream sundae! Great for Saturday nights with a DVD to feel like a treat :)
