Hate the NEW chocolate Shakeology

I hate the new flavor. Taste horrible...bad after taste. The best thing about this used to be the flavor and taste. Was great at satisfying that chocolate craving. Now I'm at a loss. I'm hoping they continue selling the original chocolate formula.

To the best of my knowledge they did not stop selling the regular chocolate flavor. That is the kind that I get and I am still getting it. I have no interest in the vegan one. The vegan chocolate is just an additional flavor, not in place of the original chocolate (again, to the best of my knowledge). If you like that one, you can call customer relations and switch your flavor back to the regular chocolate. No sense in missing out on a product you like for no reason!! I love ShakeO!! Like stated, it gives me that chocolate fix I need...and I feel better about it because it's healthy. Definitely submit your feedback to Beach Body. They're good at taking these things into consideration.

CoachMandiB:

The original chocolate (not vegan) is now a superfoods formula with 4 new ingredients added. It has upped the calories by 10, and fat by 1 and lowered the protein by 1. It has less sugar and more fiber. It has a totally different taste than the regular did before. The superfoods formula is replacing the regular formula that they have had and is now going out and everyone will eventually be getting it. It will say superfoods formula across the front of the bag. It is also a smaller bag but is suppose to still have 30 servings ( I haven't finished the bag so not sure if it has 30 or not). There is an email address you can write to, wecare@beachbody.com, but the shakeology fb page has stated that the new formula is here to stay. The new formula is not chocolatey at all so you may or may not be happy with it. I'm a chocolate girl and was not happy with it at all. Keep an eye out for it your next few shipments and let me know what you think.

Appreciate it. I hope you can get it to the right person! I am speaking about the original chocolate (not the vegan) chocolate. As 'Trying' said, it gives the chocolate fix. I really have stopped having chocolate cravings with shakeology... you shouldn't have to get used to the flavor for 30 days.... that will never prevent cravings if you have to get used to something! I so want the original back. I have called and written. Hope someone listens... Reminds of the whole Coke formula...Now they have Coke Classic. C'mon Lets get Chocolate Shakeology Classic!!! I love Insanity...it is changing my life in just 30 days...forget 60! Getting to month two next week. Need to keep my Shakeology!

Honestly I don't think it's so much the lack of sweetness (because 3 grams less sugar isn't THAT much unless you're trying this for the first time), but it is the less chocolaty flavor it has! I really loved that it had a rich cocoa flavor. Now it tastes kind of like a chemical chocolate. I don't mind it, it's just not as good as the original formula.

A Tablespoon of peanut butter actually does improve it a little bit.

But I do miss the super chocolate taste.

Tried the new formula today, and i was so bummed on the taste. But, I will not lie.. I felt so energized. Really strange. Usually I'm burned out after plyo in the morning, a post workout bike ride, and lawn mowing. But after all said and done and was time for my shake, the new formula had me feeling great !!. I got out the wakeboard and went on the lake for an hour or so on top of everything else. Plus, it take times to develop a taste for something (especially when its not sweet.. everyone craves that sugary chocolaty taste). In the long run, i think the new formula is a win. emoticon

tryin - Thank you for that!! I misunderstood and thought people were saying that the vegan formula was taking over the chocolate one all together. I did see that the original chocolate was changing. I'm not looking forward to it now. It's hard to find shakes that I like, and I liked this one. I hope they fix it emoticon Thanks again.

Hate the new flavor beyond description so I stopped my autoship! Goodbye Shakeology! If you don't taste good I'm not paying to have to doctor you up so that I can choke you down each morning.

I agree wtih digidanielle! It's not the lack of sweetness in the new formula but the lack of the rich chocolately goodness, that made it so easy to say NO to desserts and made a person eager to whip up a delicious meal in their blender. The aftertaste to this new formula reminds me of the early days of diet shakes, but I have no idea what ingredient(s) it comes from. I used to attribute it to old powdered milk. A little peanut butter helps, as does extra cinnamon. But this is an awfully expensive product to have to spend more money trying to hide that aftertaste. I'm all for healthy ingredients, but if people have difficulty choking down the new formula, the diet will fizzle.

Go back to the classic formula that made people get excited about the shake, and ask people to eat more fiber in their other meals.

I am brand new to Shakeology. Just got my new Chocolate two days ago. As a new customer I am LIVID. The sample I tried was the old kind...this stuff I just got is AWFUL. I literally was gagging by my last two gulps yesterday. Day one I used Almond milk, banana, PB2, and some ice. Day two I used Almond milk, strawberries, natural peanut butter, and some ice.

I am not new to shakes...before Shakeology I used a Whey protein as a meal replacement every morning. I have tried good ones...I have tried bad ones...as of this moment..Shakeology is the worst.

I am typing this right now...and avoiding making my shake for breakfast. The thought of it is making me gag. But I want to give it a fair shot and see if the benefits are worth getting it down every morning. So far I have not noticed any positive effects...but I know it has only been two days. I actually was so exhausted yesterday...which was the opposite of what I was hoping to feel.

I am beyond disappointed with the new chocolate Shakeology! It has a horrible artificial flavor. The aftertaste is disgusting and it doesn't even taste like chocolate anymore. try it for 30 days?? Are you kidding me? I couldn't even get past 1 shake!

Shakeology was my favorite meal of the day but now I can't brush my teeth enough to get the taste out of my mouth.

BRING BACK THE OLD FORMULA! The new stuff is horrible!

7/29/12 7:13 AM as a reply to CoachCox99.
I have to admit, I'm relieved to see everyone else thinks the Chocolate flavor tastes as bad as I do. I've done chocolate protein shakes before and enjoyed them - I figured, given the nutritional benefits of Shakeology and the rave reviews I read online, it would be something fun to try. I ordered it last week and was pretty impressed that it arrived within a couple days. But after drinking one (mixed with strawberries) I was really shocked… and disgusted. I feel like I am a victim of false advertising. This doesn't taste chocolatey… I'm not a fan of Splenda or other artificial sweeteners (I don't drink soda and detest the taste of diet drinks) but it seems that's what they're using in this new version. The after taste is so bad… as I was drinking it I was trying not to think, "This is how it would taste if it came back up"… gross, right? Who wants to drink something like that every day? I'm willing to try a couple other recipes (maybe strawberries just don't cover the flavor enough) but yeah… I'm really, really disappointed. I don't want to spend almost $150/month on something unless I know I love it.

I never got to taste the old version, but after reading these posts I think I would like it better than what I got. And I'm glad I'm not the only one who thinks this stuff is horrible. Please go back to the old version!!!

SOOOO disappointed! Just received my first Shakeology order yesterday. I finally broke down and ordered it after trying a 7-day bag and falling in love with it. Well, I'm sorry I ordered. This new stuff is so gross...less chocolate-y and tastes so artifical. Hate the sweetener after taste. I will be sending this back. What a bummer.

I have to agree with those that are saying its not the lack of sweetness, truthfully I don't notice much of a change in the level of sweetness, its how it comes across. Like a lot of others here it tastes like an artificial sweetener, so much so that I read the entire ingredient list, I have strong sensitivity to sucralose (both taste and it does awful things to my body) and that it exactly what it tastes like. Its not awful when mixed with peanut butter but for the price that I am paying I should not have to mix it with anything to make it taste good (esp when the last formula tasted great!). I was really hoping my dad would give it a try, he is type 1 diabetic (insulin dependent) and with the fiber, protein and great supplements it would be a fantastic addition to his nutrition. Now I'm not so sure he'll go for it. emoticon

I will check out what Carl has to say but given the cost (even with discount) I'm not super excited about it.

I posted yesterday about how disappointed I am as a new customer. Today is day 4...and I am sitting here taking gulps like it is nasty cough medicine.

Yesterday I fell asleep and took a nap...which is not like me at all. And I have gained 1.6lbs over the past three days.

I'm thinking Shakeology IS NOT FOR ME.I am going to give it a full 7 days...but I'm not feeling to good about this.

I know many of you have expressed that you are not enjoying the new taste...what about benefits? Anyone noticing any changes in the way they feel?

Sorry to hear the new Chocolate Shakeology is here to stay because I really don't like it at all and will be canceling my orders. As I do not like the other flavors I am disappointed, I really enjoyed mine for breakfast every morning.
