Disgusting new shakeology chocolate

My goodness that new chocolate is the worst tasting shake EVER... I had to hold my nose and try to chug it... Thank you to a friend that gave me a box of her tropical strawberry .. I'm livid as a newcomer to the world of beachbody, this was a horrid exp..I'm glad I'm not the only person who thinks its gross taste wise. However, I can't dog it too much as I feel great, no cravings, and tons of energy. It was just a really bad first shake for me;(

Have you tried adding in other things to it? This morning I added in soem black coffee, a little creamer, and some splenda. It turned out amazing. There are so many recipes, I don't really know why people still drink it without adding stuff.... unless maybe you aren't around a blender!

Feel free to message me if you want more recipes, I sent you a buddy request. Peanut butter makes it taste great too!

Recipes are fine, however , having to add additional "things" to a shake that already cost 120/month doesn't sit well with many people.

I do agree, however, I've drinken far worse things for the health benefits alone. They do a pretty good job making something thats so healthy taste at least bearable.

Yea, but it use to taste much much better... and believe me I'm ALL about ingredients I could care less about a gram of fat here or not a gram of protein there - it's one stupid gram... who cares.

But it really use to be one of my favorite meals of the day. Now the slogan for me should sound something more like this :

" The NEW chocolate Shakeology; Keeps you fit but tastes like Sh** "

This was what is holding me back from investing, taste, I know I had nasty stuff in my days as far as protein shakes and pre-workout but as a meal replacement I really base on taste. Hope I can get a sample to try this out, otherwise back to GNC for me.

Agree that the new formula is atrocious. Is the strawberry or green berry formula still palatable? Otherwise, unless BB does something by the end of the next month I'm canceling my continuous orders.

Part of me wonders if this was more of a cost cutting move with a PR spin of being improved.

The question is – with SO MANY coaches and customers complaining (the forums are full of people saying this) why cant you offer a Chocolate Original Flavor as an option? Your FAQ says there is no going back… hence my thoughts on this being more of a cost cutting move.



So let me ask this - why would folks continue to pay $120 a month for shakeology when it tastes just as bad as the other shake mixes that offer similar superfoods? And come on, let’s face it, Shakeologys claim to fame was it tasted GOOD and was nutritious – that folks would ENJOY it – the flyer that came with shakeology even brags about the taste.

There are MANY shake mixes out there just as nutritious that taste horrible... and they cost MUCH MUCH less.

Im really disappointed in BB over this, and have no confidence in the coaching opportunity now. I just signed up as a coach and was planning my first shakeology party after having so many folks comment on how great it tastes… but now, how can I? Its not the same great product that impressed me to become a coach.

I used to look forward to my shakeology as a great treat and meal replacement - not any more. I actually find myself avoiding it and eating something else.

Im giving BB till the end of the week to announce they are sorry and see the value and demand for the the original flavor - otherwise Im cancelling my autoship, and likely my coaching membership. I cant offer something I know can be bought at GNC for 50% less. The claim to fame and easy sell was how great it tasted. The flyer that came with it even bragged how it was so tasty. Not anymore.

I can get a superfoods shake for much less that tastes just as bad.

and all the people saying "add cocoa, add PB2, ect"... why not add that to the lower cost ones at GNC! I bought shakeology because it was the ONLY one that tasted awesome out of the bag.

so frustrated right now - I spend a lot of time and energy getting ramped up to be a coach based on how great I thought shakeology was.
