New Chocolate Shakeology formula (not vegan)

Has anyone tried the new formula for the chocolate shakeology? (not the vegan formula) I got mine a couple of days ago and frankly, I do not like it at all.

Got mine last week and have enjoyed it. Been using recipes with strawberries and OJ and such. Have also had it plain. Try blending with crushed ice. The colder the better :-)

I agree that I am not a fan. I hope that it grows on us. I can taste the sugar removal and the "fruitier" and less chocolatey taste. Better for us I guess but I do not look forward to it as much, that's for sure.

I agree that I don't look forward to it at all. And for the money, I really want to be able to do that. Considering my options.

I received my bag in the mail yesterday and was so excited! But as soon as I opened the bag I knew something was off. It didn't have that rich Chocolate smell to it anymore. As soon as I tasted it, I was very upset. I don't like it AT ALL. I'm going to have to return it and try a different flavor. I want the old formula back.

So not what I wanted to hear. I've always been the kind of person who hated shakes. But when I tried the Chocolate Shakeology I loved it! The Tropical (not a fan) for me it reminds me of why I've always hated shakes, the grit! So disappointed that the newer formula is lacking what we fell in love with. Not sure what to do now emoticon

I mixed it with 1 cup of vanilla almondmilk and 1.5 tbsp of PB2 (powdered peanut butter) and 2 handfuls of ice and it was better. The vanilla almondmilk added back some of the richness that was lacking. With the old formula I used regular almondmilk and 1 Tbsp of PB2. try it and see if that helps.

I got mine this week and tried it. It barely tastes like chocolate and has an overwhelming artificial sweetener taste. I did try the old formula (thankfully I still have like 1/2 a bag) vs. the new formula. Both mixed with just water. VERY different. Why mess with perfection? I have been drinking Shakeology for 18 months, and I am truely disappointed in this new version.

Did anyone else notice that the new NON-vegan formula has pea protein powder and sprouted brown rice protein powder? Like they are trying to slowly convert you to vegan? By this time next year, they'll be like "sorry it's only chocolate vegan now" because I bet you it tastes just as nasty as this one, and the only difference is the little bit of whey protein they left in this new formula. Is Beachbody trying to make all of us vegan? I am not interested. Humans are at the top of the food chain for a reason people!

AND the new formula is a smaller bag. FOR THE SAME PRICE. Still supposedly 30 servings, but smaller servings. And those smaller servings have more calories and more fat than the old/original chocolate. Not cool.

Send an email to wecare@beachbody.com. Hopefully we can get it switched back. It's nasty now!

Agreed. Not a fan either...boooo!! It has that super sweet aftertaste and doesn't taste anything like the non-superfood formula. First time in 15 months I didn't suck mine down in 5 minutes and I actually dumped about 1/4 of it out. Blech emoticon

Not looking forward to my new bag that is on the way! This is NOT GOOD, people! Not good! emoticon

I have been skimming the posts on the Shakeology board, and I keep seeing "well if I add this and this and this it's not too bad..."

Ummmm, no. For the price I pay (EVEN AS A COACH), I shouldn't have to add 19 other ingredients to it to make it taste decent! In fact -- A LARGE part of why we've continued to buy it so far, is because we can add lots of spinach, cucumber, carrots, wheatgrass powder, etc. to it and it STILL tastes awesome! If that benefit is gone, then so are we. emoticon

COMPLETELY agree with you, Hopeful. I typically add almond milk to my Shakeology, but I'm a simple gal...I don't want to add dozens of different things to make the new chocolate formulation taste good, especially when we had such a wonderful product without the new formulation.

I will hold off judgement until mine comes in. Still using up the original formula, but from everything I have read it sounds like this is not good. Beach body has always been good with customer service, hopefully they will hear this call to bring back the original or at least offer both new and old.

I'm new to Shakeology, but I REALLY don't like the artificial sweetener aftertaste. From what I'm reading here, that's new. Does anyone know if any of the other flavors are without the fake sweetener taste?

Thank you for the idea, Tryinmybest! I emailed them. Hopefully this will change, because I can't bring myself to drink the stuff - in any of the recipes!

Opened and tried the new chocolate (not vegan) today and was disappointed. It is definitley missing the chocolatey flavor we want. It is not a marketable item (re: I cannot recommend) under it's current flavor profile. If it requires doctoring, it's not worth my investment. They struck out on this one. I want more information on why they changed.

I just got my first bag ever today and didn't think it should taste as bad as it did. So low-and-behold here i am and found out everyones having issues. I really hope they can change it back for us, otherwise im not wasting my money.

Though, Beachbody has screwed me with their fail customer service in the past so i doubt anything will change.
