I've tried both the vanilla & strawberry flavors. They totally beat the traditional chocolate flavor in Slimfast (in my opinion--unless you're just CRAZY about chocolate, haha!) Then in that case, go for the chocolate flavor of the Equate brand. They are ALOT cheaper. For a pack of 8 it's about 9.98 for the slimfast brand. For a pack of 6 of the equate brand it's about 5.42. Keep in mind, you get 2 more shakes with the slimfast brand...but you are also paying 4.56 more which is pretty much double the price! (not worth it) And I think that the Equate brand tastes soo much better. The vanilla seriously tastes like a milkshake. I was so surprised when I tasted it! The strawberry is really good too! I get both of them. I'm just more partial to vanilla. It's nice to have some variety, though. What I have started to do to make this more "filling" as a meal replacement is I will grind up some oatmeal: 1/4 or 1/2 cup, then add the shake, & some ice, blend it well in a blender. It's very similar to a real milkshake! The oats need to be blended very well. They are a "filler" so they keep you fuller longer. You can also add peanut butter, bananas, etc. I just prefer oats because they're super cheap&filling. I lost atleast 3-4 pounds in about a week and a half! My goal is to lose 53 more pounds and I know that this will work as it has so far! Good luck!
