    Afternoon all,
    can i ask what are the best tasting shakes or soups. i strated cd on saturday and bought a few diff flavours. the strawberry i thought was awful, banana bliss tasted of sacharin. choc orange and spicy tom soup not too bad at all. i know everyone has different tastes but would love to know so when i go back on friday what to choose. have got some choc tetra briks but will try them tomorrow, the seem to get a big thumbs up.
    as i am on the preparation week, can i ask does anyone go into ketosis during this time and is poss to loose any weight ?
    keep readint these threads and it spurs on me on to believe i can do this

    Hi I actually prefer the ready made tetra blocks but a lot of people say they are very strong flavoured. I like the cappuccino cold but not hot.

    Try them all once! I adore choc mint, capuccino and fruits of the forest made with ice and ice cold water.

    I agree that you should try them all once too.

    The only soup I can stomach is tomatoe

    I like the following shakes in order of preference: toffee and walnut, butterscotch, banana, strawberry then vanilla.

    I'm not keen at all on any of the chocolate varieties.

    I do love the banana tetra mixed with a spoon of coffee and hot water too.

    I like Choc Mint, Toffee and Walnut, Cappuccino and Choc Orange. The only soup I like is Thai Chilli made into poppadoms. I like the choc tetra but the banana one is weird! The bars are yummy! Especially cranberry, peanut and orange. Like everyone has been suggesting, I tried them all once. The worst was the Cheese n Broccoli soup- it was indescribable!

    Deffo try them all at least once, i personally really do dislike the chilli soup have tryed it twice several weeks apart and made me feel ill, but love the tomato soup,and like the cheese n broccoli, see it really does prove everyones taste is diffrent, love the choc tetrs frozen,
    strawberry, choc, banana i would make up with water and lots of crushed ice

    cheese and broccoli makes me gag. :sign0137:I actually cant stomach ANY of the soups. Of the shakes my favourites are strawberry, banana and vanilla. I dont like any of them hot either. The soups taste better as crisps in my opinion, but i've not bothered buying anymore.

    But everyones different, you cant really make a fair judgment on other peoples opinions so unfortunately your best bet is to try them all!

    Mushroom is the product of satan, as is the broccoli and cheese :D

    I *heart* all of the shakes to be honest, maybe apart from choc orange. It smells lovely but tastes very "fake".

    Choc tetra is heaven - either frozen, mixed with coffee, with hot water added.

    I really like the veg and chicken soups, never tried the spicy ones as i'm allergic to chilli :)

    I've avoided all things banana flavour since i was 4 - the medicine from the doctor made me so ill it has put me off for life!!

    My CDC gave me a huge mix of all flavour shakes and soups and i'm going back on tuesday to swap all my mushroom and broc/cheese soups to gorgeous chicken/mushroom xxxx

    i hate banana flavouring too. So much so that i dont have anaesthetic when i have a piercing in my mouth (i have a few-2 tongue and i've had 5 lip!) because its meant to be banana flavour and its NASTY

    however, i was pleasantly suprised, its actually one of my favourites now

    cheers for the replies tho, when i posted nobody replied so i was feeling a tad unwanted... and fat.
