The New Chocolate Shakeology
Wow, I figured all of the talk about the new Shakeology was just talk and it couldn't be nearly as bad as everyone was saying, including my husband. I made my first shake of it last night and could only stomach about two sips. I literally thought I might throw up if I continued to drink it. The smell is almost just as bad. I will be forced to cancel my automatic shipments because I cannot drink it at all. NASTY.

Maybe you've tried this...but I found that a little drizzle of agave or honey mmade all the difference for me. The Tropical Strawberry is awesome, if you haven't tried it. If you contact customer service, you could exchange it for a different flavor. I apologize if you already know all of this...just thought I'd offer a suggestion just in case.

It's definitely different and Beachbody is working fast to improve the formula again. I was in the Coach Taste test panel and there was a clear winner, but don't expect the flavor to come out until early next year.

I actually stocked up on the Classic formual when I knew it was changing, but it's getting low since my in laws and good customers raid my stash. lol.

You could opt for the Chocolate Vegan Shakeology[link cut] instead. But it's not as sweet nor smooth as classic chocolate. It's more of an earthy, subtle dark chocolate flavor. I actually like it, with a little peanut butter.

I only tasted the regular Chocolate but felt I had a sensitivity to the whey so I switched to the Vegan Chocolate and I also get the Tropical Berry. I had a problem with the vegan for a week or two. The taste was much different but now I love it!! I haven't tasted the new regular formula but I have heard that the new taste panel thinks it's MUCH better than the "first" improved.

Put your HD order on hold as long as you can, not sure how many months they will hold it. And then start it up again. Hopefully it will be better. I have a customer that bought the new chocolate because she just joined and she says it great.....

So glad to hear that Beachbody might/will (fingers crossed) release a new, new chocolate shakeology--even if it doesn't come out until next year. I got hooked on the old chocolate formula (had great results) early last summer, and refuse to try to Superfoods Shakeology because of all of the bad reviews. So now, I'm experimenting with different shakes GNC has to offer--nothing even comes close to the original chocolate Shakeology.

To any Beachbody coaches out there--please keep posting any updates you have about Beachbody Re-releasing chocolate Shakeology. You guys get the heads up about products before Beachbody posts anything on the website.

I am not sure how many of you are coffee drinkers but I have found that one cup of coffee with one scoop of the new chocolate formula and a little ice is very tolerable. I never tried the original chocolate but when I received the new formula it was horrible. I tried numerous different recipes and the only one I can honestly say isn't bad (NOT great, but drinkable), is mixing it with a cup of coffee. This morning I added one small splash of a flavored creamer and that made a huge difference.

I decided to try the chocolate shakeology and could hardly stomach it. The bitterness was terrible. I tried the Vegan chocolate and LOVED IT. What a difference!! I drink these shakes 2 X day. I understand that not everything that is good for you will taste great - but they marketed the product like it was the next best thing for dessert. So - try the vegan. More expensive but it tastes good.

I have been drinking the classic chocolate Shakeology for two years. I had my first "superfood" shake today and OH MY GOD! What did they do! They absolutely ruined the best shake on the market.I really hope they have a fix for this or I'm done with it.

My favorite recipe: peanut butter, coffee with a bit of milk plus 1 scoop of the new chocolate Shakeology. So Good!
