TL;DR I want the old Vanilla back.
I commented elsewhere but I’m so disappointed that I needed to write a separate post. I get the reasoning for the change, the old recipe, some complained, was too sweet and too synthetic. My argument then, is why not just get the unsweetened version and then do your thing with it? Because now the balance has tipped to the rest of us. I’m stuck with something undrinkable, that I now have to add things to, just to get it down. I personally feel like this version tastes way more synthetic and less natural than the previous version.
I’ve also seen an official response to the effect of “we can’t please everyone.” - but an attempt could be made. Why not just put both versions up for a bit, let the customers choose, and whichever one outsells the other, you stick with that? If I’m in the minority, I’ll sit down and be quiet and probably find something else that fits for me.
