    I'm sure someone else has already found this out but I'm finding that using a straw to drink my shakes makes them last much longer and fills me up a bit more.

    Good point - I remember reading that in an old diet book years ago (referring to drinking lots of water - it works for that too!). Will try it with my next cold shake. :)

    Drinking the water through a straw makes drinking all that water sooo much easier too:D

    I don't think I could bear sipping my shakes through a straw. I chug mine, just to get them down quickly so I don't have to taste them as much!

    Have you tried making the shakes up with a big handful of ice cubes blitzed with a hand blender, its like a thick mac ds shake, a bit cold these days but I still luv em, really feel like your getting something yummmm.

    I started drinking my water with a straw last week and have drank much more. I also take no less than 8 pulls on the straw each time I drink from the jug.

    I think the straw is much of the reason i love my choco tetra, yum yum.
