    had to drink 900 ml (2 bottles) of vanilla flavored readi cat. this stuff has a slimy, chalky texture and a terrible cheap, fake vanilla and metallic taste. The stomach cramping and nausea generated from drinking this horrible stuff was FAR worse than the stomach pain I was there to diagnose. It was extremely hard for me to now throw the solution back up. Hope to never take this stuff again!!!

    Mochaccino smoothie wasn't bad. Like others are saying, it tastes like watered down hot cocoa with a thick creamy texture. I had 2 bottles, but got full on one bottle. The second bottle was not finished and the tech who came for me said I had to take one more sip. I did. The solution the tech put in my IV in my arm was a weirder experience and made me feel warm. The Cat Scan lasted about 4 min ... Show Full Comment

    Had a contrast abdominal CAT scan. The Berry Smoothie was easy to use. Much better than the colonoscopy concoction I've had to take. Is pretty gassy and caused explosive diarrhea so go straight home and take the day off if you work. Other than the after effects was easy.

    I was pleasantly surprised at how good the vanilla smoothie tasted! It was cold and (almost) delicious. I was expecting thick and chalky, but it wasn't either. It was like drinking vanilla skim milk. You do have to drink quite a bit of it, and that was unusual for me. I don't usually drink much at one time. I felt full about 3/4 of the way through the bottle, but still had to finish it. Af ... Show Full Comment

    I'm glad that webmd has some realistic reviews. I had the Mochaccino Smoothie and it basically tasted like someone only put 1/4th of a packet of hot chocolate mix into a full glass of water. The thickness is similar to heavy cream but again it tastes like a watered down cup of hot chocolate. Like many other reviewers stated, DRINK IT COLD. It really helped. As a few side points, it is i ... Show Full Comment
