Fit & Active Milk Chocolate Weight Loss Shake - Aldi

Over a year ago I reviewed these shakes, and I really liked them. (Check out my review here.) Why am I posting these again? Because the packaging has completely changed!

I usually drink these shakes instead of having breakfast because eating early in the morning tends to make me really nauseous, and these add a bit more protein to my diet. I can’t really speak to their weight loss effects, but I can vouch that they are filling and taste great.

The previous packaging was a sturdy metal can with a soda-tab top. While I did feel like the can slightly changed the flavor, I really liked the easy access and portability.
The new packaging uses white, opaque, plastic bottles. I like that both containers can be recycled, but this new bottle takes a lot more effort to open. Underneath that plastic cap there is a foil seal that looks like it should peel off easily, but I have been having a pretty difficulty time with them. It’s a thick foil that tends to shred instead of peeling off in one piece, so at times I worry about dropping part of it into the bottle. (Thankfully I haven’t so far.)
The only change in the product itself is that this new packaging has less of a metallic-y protein-y taste. It wasn’t a strong flavoring before, but I could tell it was some kind of protein drink. I thought that the flavoring was from the formula but it turns out it was all because of the canned packaging.
I really like the taste of these shakes, so I’ll continue to buy this product even though the foiled caps are a pain in the butt.
