Oaty Vanilla Update

The vanilla shakes have been slightly updated. To ensure that we always have sufficient stock, from this point on we’re getting the vanilla shakes from our Dutch supplier.

Our Dutch supplier cooperates a lot with local raw material producers. As a result, sometimes the exact same ingredients as before can taste slightly different.

In terms of ingredients, little has changed. The most important difference is that in the new shakes, we’re using whole grain oatmeal. This type of oatmeal is richer in dietary fibre, which gives the shake a bit more structure than before and a finer taste.

Another change is the aroma. In the new shakes, we use natural flavours instead of the vanillin we used previously. Natural flavours aren’t necessarily better or healthier than non-natural flavours. However, we do think they contribute to a finer overall taste of the shake.

In a nutshell, the biggest changes are in the taste and the sensory experience of the shakes. You can find the ingredients and the full nutrition info of the new shakes on the compare page.

We hope you’re as happy with this update as we are! You can order the shakes here:
