Yes, but I have tried to bury thing too, and you have to add over 2 cups of berries for three scoops if you want to taste it. Probably around 2 1/4 cups. That is crazy expensive, and it is annoying. Yes, you do get benefits from eating a whole berries, but eating over 2 cups of berries per day is probably overkill. It would be better just to add less berries to the already flavored one, or just get that one and eat berries on the side or as a snack. Adding your own chocolate is also annoying and expensive. At first, I thought the flavor boost seemed kind of expensive, but then, I actually realized that it is more expensive to use cocoa powder because I have to add 2 tablespoons before I can taste it. Now that they already have a chocolate powder, that will be better because you don’t have to have a chocolate flavor boost. You can get a different flavor boost and have even more flavors. Plus, I do not have time to add frozen berries every day. I just want to add water and go. That is what it was designed for. While adding your own flavorings is optional, you should not have to do this in order to have variety because it was technically designed so that you can just add water. You can prepare Ziploc bags of powder and flavor boosts, and you can just have them with an empty shaker or something like that and your backpack. I was planning to go that route in the future. Basically every restroom has water, and many public places also have water fountains. And before you say that it would be gross to use water from the sink in the restroom, it is just the same tapwater that is everywhere else. However, if you really insist that you think filtered water is better, when really it is just tap water that they resell to you, you could buy gallons of it and keep it with you. Or you could buy one of those UV light filter pan things. However, I think that our water is safer than ever before, and it is fine, so I can just always have food with me and all I need to find is a water source. It is also more convenient then the ready to drink one because you can carry enough food with you for a week without your backpack becoming that much heavier. No, I do not expect to be stranded without food for a week, but I meant so that way I don’t have to always remember to put my breakfast or whatever in my backpack every day. I only have to do it once a week. Yes, I know that the actual pouch has that special coating that protects the nutrients, but since it is going to be in Ziploc bags and it is only for a week, I think it would be fine. Or maybe I will just put a pouch in my backpack. You actually can flavor an entire pouch very easily and just shake it up.
