Back to the drawing board on taste
 May 9, 2015
"Although the benefits of this product is in the process of being realized, something needs to be done to make the experience of drinking it more enjoyable. It is a bit chalky at best. The taste of chocolate is more of a hint than any real flavoring and truly flat overall. I put this in a glass of water and there is where the error may be. Perhaps it would be more enticing in the vanilla almond milk I use on my cereal. Still, this product needs to stand on its own with more robust flavoring and less grittiness for me to continue supporting it."
