Own brand meal replacement powder (yuk)

Post  TP on Tue Nov 15, 2011 12:19 am

Superdrug own brand powder is the vilest thing i have ever drunk i think. pale pale I bought it in error and finding it awful to drink. The taste is foul wonder whats it made of. Slimfast is the best and what I am used to. I dread drinking it and cant wait till its gone. Any tips for managing the rest. Think if I tell superdrug how horrible it is they will send me a refund. Shocked

how about holding your nose?! i bought tins of slimfast when on offer and DH wanted to try the chocolate stuff. he didnt like it, and its rotten but i dont want to throw it out so im keeping it until last. i did try mixing one scoop vanilla with it and it made it a bit better. i love the banana stuff! i keep promosiing myself i will start back on it 'tomorrow' but it never happens, and to be honest its starting to get me down!

LOL I had this problem with drinking prune juice when I was pregnant. I always had a mint on standby after drinking whilst holding my nose Wink

Hope you do hear back from them. They have a customer feedback form on their website so they should get back to you. Let us know what they say.

Nothing ventured nothing gained! I guess you could always print out a copy of the email and take it with you when you return the stuff. Let us know how you get on

I've tried this one, the only dairy free one available, I am severely lactose intollerant and all of the others contain either lactose as a flavouring, milk as a constituent or whey powder for bulk. I can't have any of those....

it's not too bad on taste but i did find after two days i was irritable and craving protein even though i had been having my sensible dinners. I ended up doing a healthy "grill up" for diner on day 3, but as i handed jim his plate he said "protein much?" I'd done grilled bacon, grilled sausage, poached egg, grilled mushrooms and baked beans without really thinking lol.

I noticed the powder is cheap at the moment is this because they want to sell it to New Year dieters?

I assume so.

I myself am enjoying my last, guilt free, bowl of white pasta before I start slimming world tomorrow! and by the comments from my wii fit this morning (not been on in 2 months) I need it.... also the fact that I am now officially heavier than my husband.
