I’ve been drinking the “new” RTD Vanilla in the new box, and I’m surprised at how much I enjoy the change in taste.
The RTD Vanilla chemical aftertaste is gone now and the finish, after every swallow, is really smooth.
New Vanilla is now my favorite RTD flavor, when it used to be my least favorite.
The new RTD Chocolate boxes just arrived – I have to finish up the old bottles first before I open the new cache. I’m wary of the new experience, though – based on some commentary here – because I really liked the old RTD Chocolate.
I still loathe the new box design. You have to actually rip apart the entire box from top to bottom to flatten it – so much glue – no tape to easily slice. The elegance is gone in recycling. It’s all “maim to flatten” now, and sometimes you’re the one getting maimed.
As well, when I shake the new RTD Vanilla bottles, the bottle itself seems thinner and the label now slips during shaking. Once the bottle is open, everything tightens up, but you better make sure you reset the label on the bottle before opening, or you can never return it to position.
