I've only tried the chocolate. But then why would anyone want any other flavor? Sorry, I'm a confirmed chocoholic. I kind of was hesitant at first too considering the price, but the taste is pretty darn good. I keep it around to have a quick meal for those days when I cannot figure out what to have, or for a quick breakfast on the go.

I tried the vanilla. I thought it was relatively horrible. It's still sitting in my fridge. I've never had Slim Fast before though, so I really didn't know what to expect. It was just too thick and chalky for me to get it down. I drank about half of one and the rest have sat in my fridge since. I'm glad I bought them though... To support the labeling and all...

chocolate is the only ones i could handle before also or the strawberry wasnt too bad. I learned from drinking the ones before being gluten free is that htey have to be really cold to taste good, so im guessing that is how i will have to drink them again. They are on sale this week for 2/10, so i had wanted to buy alot before they went off sale if they tasted any good lol. Well that is if i can find them, I went looking for them on monday and no place had them.

Ahhhhh, it never would have occured to me to drink it warm. That would be right up there with drinking warm milk I would think, bleeech. I pull mine out of the frig to drink or pour over ice. The texture wasn't bad and it has a nice chocolate flavor.

I was meaning very cold, i know to drink them cold, but i like to put mine in the freezer for about 15 minutes to get it really cold then drink it, I use to even put them in the blender with some bananas.

I still cant find them here, but i asked safeway to order me some asap, and they said they will.

I could never lose with slim fast. It did nothing for my appetite...why? It's loaded with sugar. Even the so called low sugar one didn't take my appetite away.

I make my own shake, with almond milk and brewer's yeast (my brand is made on beets not from a brewery). I can't find nutritional yeast or I'd use that too. The only brand my stores carry is Twin Lab which has gluten in it. Making your own is way cheaper.... :)
