You missed the old stuff. So we created some new stuff. Plain and simple.
When you—our biggest fans—gave your feedback on the new Chocolate
Shakeology formula this summer, we took it to heart. Then we took
action. We immediately went back to the drawing board and found a way to
drastically improve the flavor and aroma—without compromising any of
the 70 ingredients or new Superfoods. There's still less sugar and more
fiber. And it's still, by a thousand miles, the Healthiest Meal of the
To make sure it wasn't a fluke, we put this new flavor to the test
with over 2,500 taste-testing panelists—which included both Coaches and
customers. And it passed with flying colors. Panelists approved the
flavor on FIVE key dimensions: Aroma, taste (especially aftertaste),
sweetness, chocolaty-ness, and texture.
Now for the best part: It'll be 100% available to you starting today.
And for everyone already on Chocolate Shakeology HD, you don't need to
do anything. You'll receive the new stuff in your next shipment. For
those of you that cancelled or simply want to try this new Chocolate
flavor that everyone is talking about, order it on HD and you’ll get 2

Q: What's different about the new Chocolate Shakeology formula?
A: Our team focused its improvements around five key sensory
aspects: Aroma, taste (especially aftertaste), sweetness,
chocolaty-ness, and texture. How did we do that? Two key ways: 1) We

same amount of protein) and 2) We created a more harmonious chocolate
flavor that reduces aftertaste, accentuates the chocolate aroma, and
allows the chocolaty-ness of the natural cacao to shine.
