Default RTD drinks vs packets

I am interested in the RTD drinks, I've only tried the packets so far. But I have heard several people say they are not good. Can anyone explain how the RTD taste different than the packets? Thanks!

I didn't care for the IP RTD's .Just didn't find them as flavorful as the packet. I had a chocolate drink packet last night for dinner after a few weeks of using the EAS RTD and man was it good! The packets give me more of a "Shake" taste when I blend them with ice.

I love the RTD chocolate!! I find the packets have a different texture that i didn't like however I only tried the vanilla and pina colada one (which I absolutely hated!!). I should try blending them with ice....that sounds yummy

I LOVE the chocolate ready to drink. Not watery, very rich and chocolaty tasting...I find it has much more flavour than the choc drink packet....more like it is made with milk vrs water. Just my opinion though!

I drink the chocolate RTD almost every day. It does seem creamier to me than the packet but I like both. The RTDs are convenient - breakfast in the car on the commute.

Some also add the chocolate or vanilla RTD to starbucks - shot or two of expresso, in a venti cup, either with ice or without and then add the RTD chocolate or vanilla.

Vanilla RTD is ok for me too. Also clinic has said I can use a splash of the vanilla RTD each day in my coffee to sub for milk/creamer.

I'm loving that my orotein drink tastes great with my coffee! I don't miss my old creamer.

I tried the peach mango RTD this week and really like it. It was thick and creamy. I thought it was yummy. I don't typically buy them because they are a bit more expensive and I already spend a lot!

The. Mango RTD is very good but I think it's too thick. I mix it with ice in a blender, makes it go further too. The chocolate and vanilla RTD are very good too. They are good for on the run. I prefer to use the powder in a blender with ice to make it seem like more. You can get it to double in size.

I don't buy them often, either (too cheap), but I do really like the strawberry-banana RTDs. I like the chocolate mixes better than the RTDs, but I like the chocolate RTE pudding much better than the pudding mix. The RTDs cost more for me, too, so I don't buy them all that often. Except the pudding. I really like it mixed with just a dash of peppermint extract, so I usually buy 1 or 2 of them a week.

I love all the RTDs, but I only buy the Mango, I get choc and vanilla RTDs from Nashua Nutrition since they are 99% the same but cheaper!

I use the French Vanilla or Café Caramel (EAS) in my coffee and don't miss creamer at all! Probably the best tip I've ever gotten during my IP journey. My BF and I were talking yesterday and we realized that we both put on about 20 lbs while she was going to school to be a clinical lab tech. We would meet up at Starbucks and get drinks. She would study and I would entertain her daughter (my god daughter). Between all the Starbucks frapps and calorie heavy coffee drinks and the WoodChuck Cider we'd drink on the weekends!

They are also handy to have a few on hand for travelling or in case you find yourself in a situation you dont have time/resources to mix a shake or whatever - ensures you stay on track
I do however feel like my grandma drinking her boost when I have one of the shakes...

I like the chocolate RTD, it is really thick. And the Mango is awesome! The vanilla was too sweet for my liking but it worked well in coffee. I tend to stick to the packets because they are easier to carry but always have a few RTD at home and at work just for emergencies.

I really like the Vanilla RTD and the Chocolate packet, but then again, that's all that I've had. I got the Vanilla to add to my coffee, but I like it on its own. I really like the chocolate mix, so I probably won't buy the rtd....why pay more when I like the packet is what I'm thinking.

I LOVE the RTD shakes, these I can carry in my purse or leave one in the car (winters in MN and places up here are nice COLD!) just in case.

BUT I did get some powder ones from a 3FC member and I think they were from Nashua Nutrition but it was the dark chocolate drink/pudding and MAN they are good esp. when you put it in the blender with ice and spinach the glass feels so light but it fills you up!!!

I like both so far!
