Great clean ingredients, quite satisfying as a meal replacement. Some have mentioned they didn't like the flavour of this one. I thought it was actually quite good, although the flavor can get a bit cloying after a few days on the product. Couple reasons I didn't give this five stars: it is very sweet and it would be good to see the Stevia cut in half. After all, you can add more sweetener if you so desire, but you can't take it out. I've been cutting the sweetness by adding things like plain yogurt, nut butters, coconut oil, unsweetened fruit etc. This also makes it more filling. The 2nd reason is that at the regular price, it is rather costly for just 7 servings.
I love the fact that this product is 100% healthy goodness... but what I don't love is the taste & texture. The taste was really bad, like an earthy, muddy taste mixed with vanilla chai flavoring. The texture of the product is really gritty, like sand mixed with water. Also, when they tell you to start off with smaller amounts because of the fiber in this product, they really do mean it... It's not all bad though, it really does keep you energized and full.
Great taste, great feeling

I recommend this flavour. I certainly feel the benefits of taking this. It seems to boost my immune system. I have recently bought the berry flavour because it was cheaper but it doesn't taste as good.

It's a great product. The best meal replacement ever made if you ask me and the taste is great too. It's too bad they changed the formula.
This makes everything taste goooood

I love Vega. I have used it to my smoothies and it gives delicious flavor into my smoothies, even to those, witch would otherwise taste, well... not so good. I find this product especially important for vegans.

Vega is everything you need in a yummy, easy to drink formula. No artificial nasties either. Just wish it had a bit more body to it......I like a thicker shake......but that's nothing a frozen piece of banana doesn't fix!
