The new formulation with soy protein isolate is a real step back. The smooth, milky taste and texture of the old version was far superior to this slightly-gritty formula. It doesn't help that it also adds a slightly butyric acid taste that's completely unappealing.
I like the nutrients, but I don't like the texture of the drink. I made cupcakes with it instead, so delicious!
It's not bad, but last time I ordered was a few years ago, and only just finished my supply from then recently.
So I think I can safely say the Vegan formula tasted much, much better before it was changed.
It now has a weird malty flavour.
I'm not aware of any alternatives, so I will probably continue to buy it and just not have it as often as I was.
But I would very much welcome either a return to the previous formula, or a new formula which removes this malty flavour and restores the original oaty goodness.
Been a customer since the Aussielent days. Fast and accurate product delivery. Great with berries for a quick breakfast.
I always mix mine with A2 full cream milk and some water. The new formulation is thicker and smoother than the old one and a good chocolate taste still.
