    Just made myself what I thought was the mushroom soup. Took a sip - Thai chicken flavour :confused: Just double checked empty pack and was deffo mushroom packaging. Has anyone else been sent the wrong flavour in the wrong pack?

    I havent experienced that but how gutting! I have to psych myself up to have a mushroom or the veg soup so would be awful if it wasnt the flavour i was expecting!

    Luckily I like all the packs - just thought I was losing the plot. Momentary panic at what I thought was a senior moment!!

    If you're not keen on the mushroom/veggie - just bung in a load of spices - I use bouillon (not sure if it is strictly allowed but has never done me any harm) and chilli

    Ooooh chuck - I think it's personal ;)

    Be sure to have a good whinge (*ahem* read 'strongly worded formal complaint') at them though. I would. This gear ain't cheap.

    Thanks - have sent an email with the batch number so will see what they say.

    These diets test you anyway and sometimes it's the last thing you need. :(

    Luckily it was the last pack of the day so will just go to bed instead of self-agitate. ;)

    Well, quite - that would be exactly my gripe, too.

    Fair enough - you're a better person than I. I'd just lie in bed and stew... ;)

    They asked me to send the batch back as they have never had anyone else having the same problem and then they would replace them. Maybe I'm just tired, hungry and bad moody but the wording sounded like they doubted me. Dont see what good it would do anyway as most of the batch have actually been mushroom

    Frankly don't have the time or patience to go to the hassle of sending them back - might feel differently if I couldn't stomach the Thai chicken.

    Customer lost!!

    That's a shame. But you haven't got much left to lose, and may well achieve it (or get reasonably close) by the end of the box anyway :)

    Great minds think alike!! (or fools seldom differ - you decide)

    Am hoping that the fact that I refuse to buy any more products from them means that I actually get more focus and do this 100% for the next couple of weeks - hopefully by the time the packs run out my bmi should be near the normal mark and I can look at other options for getting off the last 20-odd lbs??!!

    20ish lb? is your ticker a bit adrift, then?

    According to that, BMI wise, you're only a squeak over normal anyway - to do TS or WS you ought to have a BMI over 25, which you're not far off as it is...

    Incidentally Toots what was the batch number and date on the mushroom. It would be interesting to know.

    My ticker is right - am trying to break loss into little chunks. Was planning to SS (sorry - used to be on CD and old habits die hard - that's packs only) til BMI 25 then move up the stages with Exante - target would still be approx BMI 20-22 (will decide when I get there). With not buying any more products to move up the stages will have to be super careful plus it doesn't give me the option to faff about!! So there's good and bad ;)

    But I had one from this batch last night and it was mushroom :confused: Did notice that the next batch # along is the Thai chicken!!!
