TJ,

Have you tried these yet?

I tried a sample and, though I am loathe to say this because it is vegan and I don't want to turn anyone off, it tasted really really bad. I still have not recovered from it. When I see it in Whole Foods, I wretch and dry heave uncontrollably. But that's just my experience.....

Maybe I'm just bad at mixing things?

I think they're right bloody horrible mate. Like dirt. In bar form. And they're expensive.

But vegans don't eat for pleasure; I thought everyone knew that.


The Vega bars are one of the very few vegan bars I can eat before a workout with any amount of protein in them. So I choke 'em down as best I can.

I reckon if I can get as many people to get the samples and give them to me that, while I won't enjoy them, at least I can't argue with the price.

I can work with the Vega powder well enough though.

Cheers!

TJ

I actually bought 2 bottles of this, 1 chocolate 1 natural for over $140 back in May. They were horrid. I tried one drink of each and threw them both away. Actually, they sat in my fridge for like two months after the first try, THEN I threw them away.

Vega had a booth at the Toronto Vegetarian Festival back in September with a LOT of product on a table.

I sort of walked by and thought, yeah. Good luck with that.

I wonder if there market isn't just people like me who want a vegan supplement before a workout and have no real other choice because 99.9% of anything has whey in it.

Anyway, three weeks in and no sign of my freebie.

It is. I think individually they're $80 each. And a large bottle is supposed to last about 2 weeks. Yeeeah. I was just looking for convenience as a meal replacer... Didn't suffice.

Yeah, thankfully I only bought a sample packet.

It tasted like sawdust, sh**, and hot sick pureed together.

Which isn't as tasty as it sounds.

I thought the same thing. The bars were alright but one sip of of the drink made me feel like throwing up (and I never feel that way). And if that wasn't bad enough, I was burping up the drink for hours afterward.
