I can't believe how many people haven't tried the restricteds! Where would life be without my Caramel Nut Bar -- that baby has saved my sanity...LOL.. In Canada you can get premade pudding and they're pretty yummy. Not as versatile for cooking with, but great to grab and go. I really like soups and omelette, but only because I add so many veggies to them. Chicken patty is easy to throw in stuff or add flavour to

I was glad to see this list as it has inspired me -- I've had the "potato puree" since day one but may open that baby up yet now... I LOVE the idea of separating the SW puffs into two snacks as that really is a big pack

And who ever thought of an IP Potluck? That was brilliant.... I just have to find me some IP friends who live closer! Anyone wanna come over??

With the exception of the Wildberry Yogurt and Blueberry-Pom drink, I can't do the fruity drink mixes. Was not a big fan of the Zippers (especially when I can just have real pickles as a veggie!) or the soups by themselves. I also prefer the puddings as shakes rather than the drink mixes.

I love just about everything else! And while I don't like the soup mixes alone, I LOVE making them into flatbread! I have used both IP and an alternative brand Tomato soup mix to make tomato flatbread as a base for pizza! I'm going to be making the mushroom soup mix into 2 small flatbreads and grill a little cheddar Veggie shreds in between - grilled cheese! I also love putting sauteed mushrooms or Liz's Mushroom celery puree in the mushroom soup, it gives it a lot of flavor and body!

I'm all about the packet hacks. Waffles, muffins, pancakes, cookies, flatbread....I have honestly been able to find SOME way to use most of the packets in a way I like.

I really don't like the mixable drinks... I like the pre-made drinks. I haven't really done anything to my packets, which I'm kind of ashamed of.

Hands down vanilla pudding is my favorite. I mix in a blender with lots of ice, instant coffee, and WF chocolate syrup...heaven.

Other faves: southwest cheese curls, pickle zippers, broccoli cheddar soup (with extra broccoli and spices), chocolate soy puffs

Dislikes: tomato soup, pineapple banana drink

I'm also all about the hacks too. I love the pancakes from the crispy cereal and muffins from the oatmeal. I also add the purees into the soups. Adding the cauliflower/celery/garlic puree to the broccoli and cheese soup is my favorite.

How do you get the flatbreads to spread out? I have the hardest time getting the "dough" to spread. It's pretty sticky and seems to clump together. It takes me forever to get it flat.

My current faves are - Chocolate drink mix, pre made chocolate drink, caramel crunch bars, white chocolate cinnamon bars.

My least fave (I don't really hate anything) are the soups & the only reason why I don't like the soups is because I find them TOO filling.

My fave IP friendly foods/meals are big mac in a bowl, kale chips, turnip fries and rhubarb with various combinations of WF syrups.

The crispy cereal turned into a pancake with Melted WF apple butter is my FAVORITE!!! I also like adding WF choc syrup to the crispy cereal for a night time cocoa crispy treat. I also love the peanut crunch bar, SW puffs, potato purée, choc pudding ( as a smoothie) and mushroom soup.

I'm not a chocolate lover, hated the dark chocolate drink. This morning I had my chocolate pancake and LOVED it!! No syrup. It had the taste and texture of a chewie brownie. For breakfast - a winner. (too bad it's restricted :-)

Least favorite was the leek soup, then I tried the soy patty this weekend. Had to wash down each bite with a big drink of water. Yuck!
Shepard N7, sorry this is off topic but my husband and I love your avatar/name! We're fans and gamers ourselves.

Having my first ever RTD Vanilla drink and I like it so much better than any of the puddings. I'll be adding these to my shopping list tomorrow!! Lost the straw in the drink in the first 30 seconds - even though I had it bent over the side....Oh well!
