I have tried the berry and chocolate Vega shakes. I love what is in them and how they make me feel, but choking them down took some major effort. The Chai flavor has been a godsend! It is not only tolerable, but pretty good. Now, if you have used conventional shakes in the past, this is probably still going to taste a little off, but my motto is, if I at points in my life have done shots of vodka, I can drink something that is doing such beautiful things for my body and the earth. Great for people like myself with candida issues ;0)
I suffer from Fibromyalga, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and severe digestive issues. This shake has proven to be the only one, and I have tried many, that gives me energy, helps my digestive system and makes me feel balanced. This shake is healing and unbelievable! I suggest this to anyone!

This stuff is way too sweet and well, nasty. I wish I didnt but it but live and learn.
I love this shake!

This is the best meal replacement shake I have used. Keeps me full till lunch. My energy levels are also much more stable when using this product. Also, the flavor is great! I'm sad they have discontinued it. It's much better than VAGA ONE.
May be healthy but hard to get down

I loved the sound of what was in this product and I love Vanilla Chai so I ordered 2 containers of this thinking it would be great. The stevia taste is SO overwhelming, I've only had one serving so far and will really have to make myself drink this just to finish it up. Lesson learned. Buy small sizes when trying something for the first time!
