    Ok, so I dont know if I said before but I bagged a bargain and bought 81 sachets from a friend of a friend for £50.

    They came this morning (I am on day 7 as I bought a weeks worth from my CDC) I have just tried a plain porridge - OMG they are vile.

    I felt like I was eating wallpaper paste it was soooo disgusting!!:cry::cry:

    I even tried shaking in a tiny bit og my choc mint shake to see if that would help the taste but it just made it worse!

    I have 21 of the ******* to eat up aswell!!!
    eughhhhhh :(

    Anyone have any tips of what I can do to make it edible??

    Hi there.

    I have to say the porridge taste horrible. It should be against the law to make somehting so vile...

    I tried the apple/cinnamon one and oh my god, I actually gaged.

    I have no idea to make it better, I tried sweetener, more water, less water, I can't take.

    I love them too. I add nutmeg to the original one and add more water than is recommened to otherwise it is far too thick. Love the A&C one too. Look forward to starting the day with my porridge.

    Hope you can grow to like them.

    I like ready break with tons of sugar... so I don't think I'll try the plain porridge. I might try the apple and cinnamon!

    See this is how I am with tetras, though I used to like them, they make me feel physically sick now. But porridge, I'll eat all day! I like that it has texture to it, feels like I'm eating, not just drinking! lol

    Yeah caroline, you see thats why I htought I would like them!! I loveeee "normal" porridge but that was awful!! Could it be that the shelf life of them is only a few weeks left??

    And how can you not like choc tetras, my god they are amazing! I halved one yesterday with hot water it was lush!! :D

    I will have to try adding extra water tomorrow and cinnamon! x

    I would have thought they'd be fine. I had an out of date one the other day by accident, whoops! Tasted fine, just didn't go as thick.

    They're just far too sickly! I don't like the taste, the texture, anything. They give me a funny after taste too.

    I love the A&C porridge.
    I sometimes add 1tsp of apple sauce (like the stuff you have with roast pork and crackling......:cry:)
    It has about 4 kcal and virtually no carb. 0 fat etc.
    It makes it even yummier - and yes I know on SS I shouldn't but if that's my only sneak.......!!!:rolleyes:

    You can use psyllium husks with the shakes to make basically a porridge, I did that with toffee and walnut but now I can't stand that flavour at all!
