I was a bit hesitant to order based on some of the reviews on the taste. I appreciate all of the reviews written as it helped me come up with a possible taste solution. I purchased the RAW Meal along with All Natural Frontier Banana Flavor. I just add a drop to my water, then mix in with the RAW Meal in a shaker cup. I don't have access to a blender when I am on the go and this is perfect taste substitute for a real banana. Turns out I don't mind the taste of the RAW Meal with or w/o the banana flavor. It's super delicious and I am glad I purchased this product. It's nice and thick and really fills you up. Other shakes I have made don't provide the, "full effect" and I end up overeating from feeling hungry. Great Product! I will be ordering again and again. :)
It works but,,,

Yeah, I feel great when I eat this instead of normal meal, but tastes so bad. It's hard to say "it tastes ok." Espesially when I have vega product, vega set off the disgusting taste of this product. But it works very well as a supplement, I'm sure I'll buy this product, because this is so reasonable price.
not the best

Organic, which is good, but sugar/sweetener is second ingredient, which is not good. Wouldn't buy again.
Intolerable taste. No health benefit noticed. Don't like to waste food, but this goes in the trash.

I am tough when it comes to healthful foods - juice dandelions, drink powdered spirulina, no refined carbs and all the rest - but this raw sprout powder is too tough to drink unless one would mix a lot of sugary ingredients like some of the people reviewing product positively. I like the concept of raw, high protein, etc. but I felt no health benefit. I've read that vegetables and grains are not necessarily good to eat raw. A rule of thumb for me is that if it tastes toxic don't force it down. It is a good value though if it works for you.

The first time I tried this, it did not taste good, but acceptable. After eating this for some time, the taste gets better and better. In fact, I look forward to it. I used it to replace my lunch daily and it is helpful in keeping my energy up and maintaining my weight.
Takes a while to get used to

The flavor is really... bean-y. I have only mixed this with either chocolate soy milk or almond milk, and I think almond milk is my preferred. I think it would be good with vanilla almond milk, honey, a banana and some strawberries, blended. It doesn't taste great, but it doesn't taste FAKE either, and my taste buds respond much better to real (if kind of strange-tasting) food than artificial foods. The nutrition is what drew me to this product. Dramatic taste alteration should be up to the consumer, in my opinion. I do wish it was a little less expensive, because $40 for 14 servings is a little pricey.
Wonderful tasting blend

This is a great combination for optimum health

I've been a vegan for a year and have been looking for an alternative to soy to acheive my daily protien quota. Raw Meal is a great source!

Hard to get used to the taste, but once you do, this is great! I feel better and recover from workouts faster. Stops hunger, too.
