Pros: Nutrition, Overall health

Cons: Aquired taste.

 I first tried the Sequel naturals in the berry flavor. That flavor- is just not do-able. However, the effects of the drink were felt instantly. I had so much more energy, I felt healthier, and felt better about myself. So, even though the flavor was horrible, we decided that the nutrition was key.
We then went to our whole foods market and picked up the vanilla chai flavor. At first, it was hard to get down, but eventually it was fine. The vanilla chai's taste does not even compare to the berry, if all they had was berry I would never drink it again.
The taste that is hard for some people to get used to is the Stevia (a natural sugar substitute). I would describe any sugar substitute as tasting "empty". 

If you are used to sugar substitutes such as stevia or splenda, you will be able to drink this no problem.

If you are curious to try this, I suggest you try one of the packets. After you try that packet and feel the nutrition flowing through you- try another packet a few days later. It only took me about 2 servings before I didn't notice the taste anymore, and i'm darn picky!

Cons: It just really tastes bad

 Luckily I bought the sample size, because spending any more money on this would have been a waste. I wanted to give it a chance but after the second sip there was this bad aftertaste. This tastes nothing like chai. I bought it imagining the taste of Bolthouse's soy vanilla chai.

The nutritional data looks really impressive, but I think I'll have to throw this into a batch of muffins to get the value out of it, as I hate wasting stuff. Hopefully it doesn't ruin the muffins.

It's really a shame as I wouldn't mind a good DIY vegan health drink after a jog. Guess this isn't it. I'm a little afraid to try the berry flavour I also bought.

Description:

Vega is a Complete Wholefood Health Optimizer an All-in-one, natural plant-based formula that provides 100% RDI of vitamins & minerals per serving. Its rich in protein, fibre, Omega 3 EFAs, antioxidants & phytonutrients. Alkaline-forming & easy to digest, Vega has no common allergens. Quite often the simplest solution is the best one. Over the past 50 years, however, our Western culture has managed to complicate matters concerning diet and its relation to health. Obesity and malnourishment exist simultaneously while the over-consumption of calorie-rich but nutrient-poor foods drain our energy. To make matters worse, we treat obesity with drugs and fad diets and combat fatigue with refined carbohydrates, sugar and caffeine. These are short-term solutions that eventually render us energy depleted, over-stimulated, chronically stressed and vulnerable to illness and premature aging. So what can we do to address this problem? Today, many health experts believe the solution is to consume primarily plant-based whole foods; pure and simple as nature intended. Whole foods support all the requirements of a healthy body system, from absorption to elimination. The challenge with whole foods has always been their relative inconvenience to prepare, compared to the gamut of fast food offerings so readily available to us. Born of the belief that one should not have to compromise between whole food goodness and fast food convenience, Vega was created with the following principles in mind: Plant-based whole foods are the true future of optimal health"Eat your fruits and vegetables." This is one of the most tried and true recommendations for a healthy diet. Plant-based foods are rich in antioxidants, essential vitamins and minerals, enzymes, fiber and phytonutrients and countless studies support their many health benefits. Vega is made exclusively from plant-based whole foods. Raw, alkalinizing foods are the best defense against illness
