As you know by now I’m a huge fan of P90x. In the past year I’ve completed P90x three times and am currently in week 2 of Insanity. I can’t begin to express how thrilled I’ve been with the results of theses programs, but if you check this blog, you’ll get an idea.
This is really my first complaint regarding any thing I’ve received from BeachBody. For the past year, the whole family had been drinking their P90x recovery drink and eating their protein bars. The drink is pretty awesome and all of us look forward to it after a hard workout. And the protein bars have fought away the hunger and provided a wonderful snack between meals. The peanut butter bars has been the wife’s favorite while the fudge bars were mine, until recently.
You know how it goes, “New and Improved” that’s what the box says and according to the nutrition facts they’ve managed to strip 10 calories out of each bars and scattered about a few additional improvements for the fudge bars. Unfortunately, neither the wife or I care for the “New & Improved” version – they suck compared to the original.
Beachbody – please realize what Coke did in the 80’s and return to the original formula. You had a great product, with good nutrition, that tasted wonderful. The new and improved formula is mediocre at best.
