New New chocolate shakeolgy vs new (old) chocolate
I just received my order of the new Chocolate Shakeology. At first glance many things are the same, but calcium is slightly less and iron is slightly more in the new formula. Also, the blends are a little different, but it still seems to have the same ingredients, just in different quantities.

Before I go in to my opinion, I want to say I started off with the original Chocolate and loved it. Then the new super foods formula came out. I didn't like the after taste much, but I dealt with it because I usually put things in my shake anyway (Like peanut butter, banana etc.) Because it was reformulated to be even healthier, I stuck with it and eventually grew accustomed to it.

I can see why people didn't like the change, because it was no longer as tasty by itself (just water and mix). I was pretty excited to hear about the reformulation again, which started to be shipped on December 21st.

How does it compare?

Well really, it doesn't. This new flavor is amazing. Now I know why it took so long to formulate. I did a side by side comparison by drinking both the super food formula, and the new reformulated one I just received, using only water and the mix.

The newer version tasted better (not a little, but a lot), smells better, better consistency, more of a chocolaty taste without the after taste, and once again, can be drank by itself again.

You may ask, how do I get my hands on the new flavor? If you currently get chocolate shakeology on auto ship, do nothing, as the new flavor will be sent to you for your next order. If you want to change your current auto ship flavor, just send an email to customerservice@teambeachbody.com requesting to change to the new chocolate formula. Just remember to specify if you want the packets (24 servings) or bag (30 servings).

If you currently don't have an auto ship order, and want to give it a try first, please contact your coach. I do have samples that I've purchased, but you current coach should be contacted first and should be able to help you out. If all else fails, reach out, and I will help you.

Thanks for reading, and thanks for the reformulation Beachbody!

A few more observations:

The new formula seems less thick, so less fluid can be used to make it tastier. It also doesn't seem to gel up like the last formula. The scenting the mix, before and after, was fixed, as it used to smell like pharmaceuticals and doesn't anymore.

I'd like to hear from anyone else that's tried it. What do you think?

Yes you should, they began shipping that date. The label shouldn't have the new superfood formula ribbon on it, that will tell you that you've got the new flavor. Enjoy!

I've given out quite a bit of samples and have lots of positive feedback so far. I even have one that stopped ordering because of the old flavor change and has placed a new order after the new sample. Wondering what everyone else thinks that's tried a sample or just got their order.

I really like the taste, but I have a question (forgive me if this is TMI): Does anyone else have problems with excessive gas after taking this new formula?

I haven't noticed that, did you have the same thing with the other formula? My wife takes the vegan formula (tropical) because of her milk intolerance, but she has been taking the new chocolate without any problems.

I didn't mind the Old New Taste after a few servings and I don't mind the New New Taste. One thing I have noticed as an improvement is that I don't have the weird tickle / scratchy throat / slight coughing fit I did after drink the Old New formula, and also there's no after-taste at all (which was the main thing I noticed in the switch from the Old Old formula to the New Old Formula).

I think this formula is a slight improvement, but like I mentioned before I was never that hung up on the taste to start with.
