We love this product, my husband and I had been consuming this milkshake in all its flavors for years. I dont crave for sweets and its helps to burn fat really. Its a good breakfast and its yummy.
Not too bad
I can't lie, the product does taste different from what I remember it tasting like last. The vanilla hint is definitely there, but it is a little more chalky than what I last had. It's low calorie with moderate carbs! If I blend it, I just add a banana. If I shake it, I will just use a little greek yogurt. The taste was reasonable enough for me to want to modify/ tweak it a little bit. I will be looking for something that taste a little better though.
This Is a Great Product
I had been using Natures Way Metabolic Reset hunger control shake for several years until it was discontinued recently. I went searching for a replacement and decided to try Garden Of Life Raw Organic Fit protein for weight loss. I really like the taste. It is delicious with unsweetened almond milk. I would recommend to anyone searching for an all natural meal replacement shake. You won't be disappointed.
(See previous reviews!) Bad News, but (Hopefully) Good News
I just got off the phone with "Garden of Life", Product Support @ 866-465-0051. Spoke with a representative and she was extremely helpful and interested in what I had to say about this product. If you read the review of "Twister" above, it is spot on. I called Garden of Life to tell them something was VERY different in my new batch and it wasn't good. She informed me that last September they had ADDED organic PEA FIBER to improve texture and palatability. Well, it didn't work on the palatability at all. It did not taste anything like the original one I fell in love with and looked forward to every single morning for years. My husband agreed. It tasted bitter/salty and was not sweet with an aftertaste that wasn't pleasant. I usually did not mix the powder before using in a new container, but the second day I did mix the powder thoroughly hoping it would help. It did not. That's when I called the manufacturer to ask why the taste changed so drastically. I told the rep I was going to leave a follow-up negative review on the product and that's when I noticed 'Twister's' review saying exactly what I had said, so I knew it wasn't just I who noticed this. I immediately called back the rep and she looked up Twister's review while we were on the phone. The good news: The representative from this product assured me she would take all this information, including 'Twister's' remarks as well as mine, to product development to share this information and see what could be done. I asked if she could let me know the outcome. I've taken her contact info and either she will contact me or I will follow up. My hope is that they change it back to the ORIGINAL and not try to compensate by adjusting the formula yet again. Leave OUT the pea protein completely. I never had an issue with the texture at all, and I think Twister would agree. If one canNOT get past the taste, then the texture is a mute point. PLEASE, Garden of Life, I know you'll see this--hear our cry! We want our old formula back!
Garden of Life Unflavored
When I ordered this particular product, I noticed that the ingredients had changed and pea protein was added and the sodium content went from 0 or minimal to a much higher level so I returned it unopened. I used to love the flavor when it did not contain pea protein or sodium but I cannot stomach pea protein or sodium so I no longer buy this product.
