[Product Review] Forza Diet Shake It Slim Meal Replacement Shakes

Forza Diet Shake It Slim Meal Replacement Shakes

I was recently lucky enough to try out the Forza Diet Shake It Slim Meal Replacement Shakes for a week.

Forza Diet Shake It Slim Meal Replacement Shakes

The Forza Diet Shake Starter Pack contains:

  • 5 Chocolate Shakes
  • 5 Strawberry Shakes
  • 4 Vanilla Shakes
  • 1 Forza-Branded 600ml Shaker

The shakes reminded me a lot of the Tony Ferguson meal replacement shakes that I used, years ago (and that I wish they still sold here!); you mix them with water, not milk. They also taste very similar, and have a very similar consistency.

They’re very smooth, mix very easily – the mixer ball in the shaker helps with that – and a very liquid consistency, unlike the quite thick consistency that meal replacement shakes such as Slim•Fast have, where it’s mixed with milk.

Forza Diet Shake It Slim Meal Replacement Shakes: Flavour

The chocolate shake is definitely the nicest of the three, and for me to say that must really say something, given that the fact I’m always annoyed that manufacturers put more chocolate-flavoured items in that other flavours, especially in things that are marketed towards women.

I am not a chocolate lover.

But the chocolate Forza Diet Meal Replacement Shake is really good: it tastes like chocolate; it’s not watery; it’s not too sweet. It mixes well, and it’s not at all gritty. NONE of the shakes are gritty, which is excellent.

The strawberry shake is a very smooth strawberry flavour, which is lovely; it’s not too overpowering, which is something that I’ve found with strawberry flavoured shakes and other things: “fake” strawberry flavour can be very overpowering, and this is definitely not overpowering.  It’s very smooth, not overly sweet, and it’s lovely.  It makes a real change from the sickening and sugary shakes I’ve tried in the past.

The vanilla shake was… sadly, a little disappointing.  Vanilla-flavoured items are some of my favourite, and this was overpowering, fake, too sweet.  I actually tried it last, out of them all, and because the other two were so good, I was expecting the vanilla to be as good, but I was a little let down.  It was obviously going for a French Vanilla flavour, and it just came off as being… too strong, too sweet, and I just didn’t enjoy it as much as the other two flavours, sadly.

Forza Diet Shake It Slim Meal Replacement Shaker Bottle

There’s only one problem I have with the Forza Diet Shake It Slim Shaker Bottle, and it’s with the lid/mouthpiece: if you look at the photo, you can see how big the space is between the hole and where your mouth will actually be.  When I was drinking from the bottle, I felt like my mouth was open quite wide when taking a drink, in order to cover the entire hole.

It’s a small problem, but enough to bother me.  Other than that, the bottle’s great.  We put it in the dishwasher every time, twice a day, and there was no sign of the writing washing off, which is good.  So long as you make sure the mouthpiece is fully pushed down before shaking everything up, it’s all fine.  If the mouthpiece isn’t pushed down, the shake will spill out of the top.

Trust me: I know.

Forza Diet Shake It Slim Meal Replacement Shakes: Overall

Despite the minor disappointment with the vanilla shake and the tiny problem with the shaker bottle, I’m really impressed with the Forza Diet Shake It Slim Meal Replacement Shakes.  They taste good, they mix easily, and they don’t taste too sweet.  The fact that they don’t require milk is good, too, as an extra cost on top of meal replacement shakes is something that really bothers me.

Overall, I’m more than happy to give the Forza Diet Shake It Slim Meal Replacement Shakes:

★★★★☆/★★★★★
