Default HNS flavor options

I will be getting my first HNS packages today & I was wanting to know your recommendations of the flavor(s) to get. any I should probably avoid? thanks for any input you can give me, I was planning on getting the 10 boxes for $100 deal but want to make sure I get a flavor or flavors I can actually drink lol

I think it depends on individual tastes. And, since they've changed formulations, some things I loved previously, I can't stand now.

Personally, I like the Pink Lemonade, Wildberry Passion, and Mixed Berry. I used to love the hot chocolate, kiwi-melon, and orange, but I'm not crazy about the new formulations... I still have my hot cocoa at night just to have my sweet fix while watching TV or winding down from the day.

I also like the fiber drink mixed with pink lemonade at lunch to help curb hunger and keep things, ahem, "going".

You might like the vanilla pudding or chocolate pudding too... I bought a box of them here and there for recipes and such... Same with the creamy chicken soup...

But, again, it depends upon your tastes...

The reformulations threw me a wrench.... I still love the Wildberry, Mixed Berry and Green Tea. The Orange and Kiwi, not so much. I did try the Pomegranate, and I like that as well.
But, as the PP said, its a matter of individual taste

I'm fairly new and don't have the bias of having tried the HNS's before, but here is what I like:

Green tea
Pomegranate
Peach Mango
Mixed Berry

Chicken boullion and creamy chicken soup are okay if you like to make recipes with them. They are bland on their own.

I'm brand new but so far I've tried Peach Mango.. Pomegranite... and the cinnamon crunch bar and they've all been good. I was told to stay away from the Blue Raspberry.

Also others at the class highly recommend the chocolate pudding, cappaccino, and hot cocoa mix

Blue raspberry would be good on shaved ice like a snow cone. I mix the orange in with some diet sprite, and it's like a sunkist soda. If you mix the hot cocoa with a diet chocolate soda and ice, it tastes a lot like a frosty. The pink lemonade is good during the hot weather, the others just taste too sweet to me. And if you get the meal replacement shakes, if you mix them with the hot cocoa or orange, add a little vanilla and a spoon of splenda, they're pretty good.

Since they redid some of the drinks I decided to try the orange and I like it more now. It always gave me an odd aftertaste.

So which ones did you end up getting and which ones did you like?

I've tried a good variety so far and none have been horrible. I'm not sure on the chocolate pudding.. some love it.. I think it tastes like I'm eating raw super sweet chocolate cake batter. I actually like the clear HNS just fine and don't really need the creamy right now. Although I have used the Creamy Chicken with some dinner recipes.. but I wouldn't just drink it by itself

The Shaved ice is a good idea. Especially in this heat! Haven't thought of that one.

@Anjy88- I like to add some vanilla and cinnamon to the chocolate pudding and pop it in the freezer for a good hour. Makes it tastier. Like a nice frozen custard.

t

I got

pink lemonade
peach mango
orange
wildberry
mixed berry
green tea & cranberry
kiwi melon
hot chocolate (haven'tried yet waiting on day 5)
chocolate pudding (havent tried yet waiting for day 5)

my favorite ones are pink lemonade & peach mango, I can't stand the green tea will be drinking them up so I can get rid of them & not buying them again, the others are all ok and bearable, I don't think I care for the liquid ones, all though the more I drink mixed berry the more it grows on me. when I buy my next round I will try some of the other ones I didnt get until I've tried them all I guess.

also it says to drink the HNS within 1 hour of eating a meal, can I drink it right after I finish my meal or am I supposed to wait a lil while but not more than an hour?

You can drink it with your meal or within a hour after you eat.

I was at a quilting retreat last week and used the very berry and pomegranate to drizzle on my salad and then poured the rest in my glass. Worked great for me. I only intending to use the Pom but picked up a berry and headed to the dining hall before I realized it.
