So I just got my first Medifast shipment yesterday and It seems like the Orange Creme shakes have about half the amount of powder as the rest of the flavors that I got. Has anyone else noticed this or am I the only one?..

So somebody needs to break this to you, Medifast quality control is pretty much a joke. Bars will be too small or too large, some pretzel packages have twice what others do, etc. Get the gram weight of the orange shakes versus the others if you are concerned, but do not expect Medifast customer service to tell you anything other than "you need to calibrate your scale".

Some people assume everything evens out in the end, others are more concerned about being shorted calories on an already low-calorie diet.

But no, to answer the question, you are not the only one...

I have never tired them so I don't know, but are they good?..

Really? I had no idea that QC is a joke. Maybe I'm unique, but I seem to have consistency in every order with regard to the quality of the products. I have read some of the posts that say products aren't consistent but that has not been my experience...

Hey Robin, thanks for the info. It probably will all even out in the end and I could probably use fewer calories anyway! LOL! It sort of makes me happy, however, that the Medifast food is still produced in a small plant owned and operated only for MF. The QC would probably be better at a large corporate plant, but do we all really want a big corporate diet plan? I know I don't. And Luv2scrap, the Orange shakes are my favorite flavor...

Oh how I wish that others had such a great attitude!.

Orange was always one of my favorites, especially blended up with a bunch of ice. Tasted just like an Orange Julius...

I'm very happy with the food from Medifast. If anything, some of my packets have been a bit generousnever short. My only challenge has been a smashed shipping box from UPS, and even then the food survived...

I've never noticed any huge shortage in servings although some bars do seem a touch smaller than others, but that seems to vary between flavors, not batches within a flavor. I have noticed the drinks like Tropical Punch seem to have a TON of powder for an 8 oz glass of water. I usually mix it with 20-30oz of water to soften the sweetness and make it last a bit longer...
