The young-at-heart people will understand the reference in the title ;)

IP has discontinued the Pina Colada.

I'd like to get some so if anyone has any they don't like or any they'd be willing to trade, please PM me. This is one of the flavors I can still have after my ax-job over the weekend! GRRR!

I don't have any of those, but found a recipe on nashua for Pina Colada using vanilla protein drinks. You could probably find some 0/0/0 extracts in these flavors.

Pina Colada



1 packet Vanilla Shake/Pudding Mix
1 tsp rum extract
1 tsp coconut extract
3/4 cup water

Mix all ingredients in a blender on high speed until smooth. Pour into chilled glass.

Are you kidding?? 1st the Peanut Soy Puffs and now the Pina Colada mix?? I never liked Pina Coladas, (or getting caught in the rain) but I loved the mix!
They need to bring out more choices, not create less.

You made me spit out my water!!! LOL I believe they need a lot more choices. I would use more IP products if they had something besides the basics.

Yes and yes!

Me too on the not liking piņa coladas or getting caught in the rain :o but liking the IP drink.
And I'll SECOND the MORE choices, rather than fewer!
Esp with my recent axing of most of the items on my order sheet

I don't have any of those, but found a recipe on nashua for Pina Colada using vanilla protein drinks. You could probably find some 0/0/0 extracts in these flavors.
I LOVE it! Thumb our nose at IP by making our own!

I LOVE them! That was one of very few IP products that I would pay extra money for!! I know some people here don't like them, but to me that drink is super tasty...I love coconut flavour and pineapple so....what's not to love in pina colada?????

Sorry I'm no help (jealously guards her few pina colada's left in the box), I'm just joining you in venting! Grrrr!

Wow! That would be pretty sweet for me (due to the vanilla drink being sweet too). But the dasani drops with my PLAIN whey protein powder might just work. I like those Dasani drops a LOT!

Yes and yes!



If I can get them, how many boxes would you like? Also, it looks like you can get them on the Plain Protein site for $27/box so you may want to consider ordering online.

Well, that's a bummer! That's one of the IP products that I really like--esp in warm weather. Guess I'll put a box on my order sheet for Wednesday.
Thanks for the heads-up, Lisa!

How do you know this? It is still on the IP site. It's my staple drink for breakfast and my purchases alone should keep it on the market.....

I have 2 packets I could send you. I have never tried them, but I'm not one who likes to drink my meal, so I have never used them.

Just heard back from IP Customer Relations. They are NOT discontinuing Pina Colada. Here's the response which I received within 12 hours of sending my message.

"Our pina colada will not be discontinued but will be reformulated in a few months."

I suggest to anyone who enjoys this product that you send an email on the "Contact Us" form of the Ideal Protein Site and let them know that you buy and enjoy the product. They seem to be responsive to customer feedback. Make your voice heard!

Thanks!

I just sent that to my coach. She said it is not available for her to order right now. At least I could get it from Plain Protein :)

And, yes, I'll be contacting IP. They can reformulate (they had BETTER NOT add soy!) but keep producing what they have now!

My coach also said IP is moving toward having the ready-to-eat pudding available in the states. Its an FDA thing at this point.

THANK GOD.:love: Of course my coaches had no clue what I was talking about and didn't really care either.:mad:

My coach just texted me and said it is again available for purchase from IP.

It was not available last week or on Monday when I asked about it & she had been told it was discontinued. Maybe they had a change-of-heart!

well now that Lisa has a bomb shelter stock piled FULL of pina colada I think there is a 'coconut bra party' at her house this weekend -- bring your own blender. I'm supplin' the ice and little "umbrellas":beach:

FYI when the ready made puddings come in, you'll be happy I-Peeps! I love the vanilla one. However they are more costly than the powder FYI

Happy to mail you both, as long as you pay for shipping

Believe our clinic has both, they sell at 30 per box.

Ip now has the piņa colada again. My coach said they did this with the strawberry pudding a while back...took it off sale and then right back on about a week later. They WILL be reformulating.

IP43: do the pre-made puddings have soy protein?

Am I doing something wrong? I drank the peach mango drink and couldn't finish it. How do you make these drinks? I used ice and water in a blender. Maybe I need more water?

I just shake that up in my shaker and serve over ice but a little ice in the blender sounds good on a hot day.
