I've tried 4 of the shakes, hot cocoa, 4-5 types of bars, 2 flavors pudding, pancakes, soft serve, puffs/pretzels, chicken noodle soup, brownies and that may be it, so I don't have much to share..

(1) Smore's Crunch Bar.

(2) Dutch Choc 55 Shake.

(3) Mint Choc Crunch Bar.

(4) Choc Pudding or Peanut Butter Crunch Bar (tie!).

(5) Hot Cocoa (not as hot cocoa, as little choc drops.

Least Fav's.

Comment #23

Hmm, while I haven't tried everything out there yet, and I can eat just about any Medifast food you put in front of me, I certainly have some favs and some blechs.


Chili - not as good as mom's but nice and filling..

Beef Stew - with plenty of steakhouse seasoning..

Brownie - with a dollop of Reddiwip...YUM!.

Chili Nacho puffs - my fav afternoon snack with a diet mtn dew..

Orange Creme shake - my favorite shake flavor..

Blech (but I'll consume them anyway):.

Oatmeal - blueberry and maple are equally horrific, but they keep me full for a good 3 hours..

Fruit Drink - no manner of shaking or stirring would get rid of the clumps...ick..

Pancakes - they are good, but a straight tease and I'm hungry again almost immediately..

Chocolate Mint Soft Serve - I add Hershey's powder to cut the mint flavor, but I still don't like it much. I hope the peanut butter flavor is better....

Comment #24

1. Plain Pancakes.

2. Calorie Burn Capps & regular capps.

3. All oatmeal's.

Least favs: .

1. Dark Chocolate shakes.

2. Vanilla Pudding.

3. Vanilla shakes.

4. eggs.

5. Banana shakes or pudding.

Comment #25

Faves as of today - this list DOES change LOL!:.

Cappuccino (I drink hot in my morning coffee - every morning since I started MF).


Cinnamon Pretzels.

Peach Oatmeal.

Chocolate Bar.

Honestly I can't come up with a lot I won't eat now. I don't "hate" anything... or even "dislike" anything, but there is definitely a bottom side of the "faves" list, even though they aren't my "top faves" I still like them, you know? .

I have not tried everything the plan has to offer. I will order things I like, and things I think I like (and so far my guesses have been accurate)..

Comment #26

This is a great thread; I have seen several of my favorites on other's 'hate' list. And several of my less favorites on others 'love' lists. I hope newbies are reading this so they know that everyone's taste are so different and not to get discouraged if they don't like something at first.


1. cappucino (with ice; taste like Starbucks to me!).

2. choc. mint bars (almost too good!) I have to admit I've have 2 in a row a time or two!.

3. chicken noodle soup w/ parm puffs.

4. caramel bars.

5. honey mustard pretzels.


1. strawberry bars!! yuk!.

2. peanut butter bars - this surprised me because I love PB??.

3. Ready to Drink Vanilla Shakes (Don't waste your money!!).

4. Ready to Drink Choc. shakes .

5. Hot Choc. (better blended with ice).

I havn't tried the oatmeals or eggs yet, so can't comment on those..

Comment #27

My Likes:.

Caramel Crunch Bar.

Peanut Butter Crunch Bar.

Cappuccino (made with hot coffee).

Lemon bar.

Maple and Brown Sugar oatmeal.

...really wracking my brain to think of a 5th dislike. I don't think I have one!.

Comment #30

Oops I double posted; great thread!.

Comment #31

What a great thread that really shows us how we are all a little different in our tastes. Thank goodness there is variety in Medifast land! I have a rather small circle of Medifast foods that I can eat but that is ok. I am one of those people that can eat the same thing over and over..



Hot Cocoa.

Choc. crunch bars.

RTD choc. shakes.

Honey Mustard Pretz..

Soy crisps (ranch and white cheddar).


Powdered shakes.


The cold drinks.



Comment #32

Fun thread!.


1) Chili Nacho Cheese Puffs .

2) Coffee Soft Serve.

3) Brownies.

4) Beef Vegetable Stew.

5) Banana Shake (Tastes like Banana Now 'N Laters from my younger days).


1)Dutch Chocolate shake.

2)Strawberry shake.


4)Cinnamon Pretzels (loved them at first).

5)Maple Brown Sugar Oatmeal.

Comment #33

Love these threads!.


1)Smores crunch.

2) HM pretzels.

3) Choc. Pudding.

4) Any choc. shake.

5) Chicken noodle soup.

Least Favs:.

1)Tropical punch (could not choke it down).

2) Cranberry Mango.

3)PB crunch (I had high hopes for this one, but could not like it).

4) Caramel Crunch (has the same flavor as PB to me).

However, with the exception of the tropical punch, any other Medifast food even those on my least favs I could eat. I haven't tried the ice teas yet, maybe I'll add a sample of those this order.

I also like the oatmeal! I'm freaky, I know!.

Comment #34

Must have.

Choc, Vanilla, Swiss Mocha shakes-I blend all with coffee and ice and could drink them all day..

Cap-same as above.

Choc&Vanilla pudding.

Fruit and nut bars-I like them I have just had too many of them-I was down to only that for 2 weeks.

Anything Banana.

Orange cream shake....omg..I really thought I would die. LOL.

Comment #35

RESULTS so far!.

By far the most often mentioned on the BEST lists are:.


Honey Mustard Pretzels.

Hot Cocoa.

Chocolate Pudding.

Peanut Butter Bars.

A few people did not like the PB bars, Cocoa, Brownies. One didn't like HM pretzels. But no one names Chocolate Pudding on their worst list..

Closely following on the BEST list are:.

Pancakes (both kinds).

Dutch Chocolate Shakes.

Smores Bars.


Chili Puffs.

Chocolate Crunch Bars.

Chicken Noodle Soup.

Mint Chocolate Bars.

Cinnamon Pretzels (almost as many people listed these as Worst).

Soft Serve (all kinds).

As for the WORST, the overwhelming "winners" are:.


Beef Stew.

Various Shakes (most mentioned = Swiss Mocha).

Vanilla Pudding or Shakes.

Fruit Drinks (Mango and Tropical Punch).

Followed by.


Strawberry Bars.

Cream of Broccoli Soup and/or "all soups".

Interesting?? Yet almost all the Worsts were mentioned by one or two people as their faves. No one claimed the COB soup or Strawberry bars as faves though..

Thought it was fun to tally.

Comment #36

It's so funny to see that what some people hate other folks love. My favs are:.

Parm puffs.


Cinn pretzels.

Dark choc chake.


Things I would not order again:.

Orange creme shake.

Strawberry bars.

Lemon bars.

COB soup.

Comment #37

Well I must be a freak too, cuz I really like the oatmeal too! But girl... you don't like PB bars or caramel crunch? Now that's just downright blasphemous! hahahhaha I sweat those things! TOO MUCH!! hahaha.

Comment #38

I didn't realize we were going to get stats at the end .

It is really funny how different we all are. I can't believe hot cocoa is one of the top all time favs! I tried so hard to make that work for me by making it different ways. Each and every time I tried it (3), I got really nauseated! I also could not stand the vanilla pudding or shakes at first but now I loveeee them! But then again, I like oatmeal (all but peach), so maybe I'm just a nut! I am NOT surprised at all that choc pudding was never mentioned as a least fav. That stuff is GOOOOODDDD!!!! .

Thanks for tallying that all up! Very interesting!!!.

Comment #39

As a newbie, this certainly was a fun and interesting post to read. When I was placing my order about two weeks ago, I was kind of wondering what everyone else liked and disliked. With today being my first day, I have not tried too many things yet but for the most part I really believe I can do this! I love the swiss mocha shake, the chocolate crunch bar and the PB crunch bar. However, the chicken and wild rice soup...YUCK!! I think I may give it another try some day but I don't think that my opinion will change..

Comment #40

I thought you were starting tomorrow? No matter... glad you're doing it now! I love the swiss mocha shake all frapped up with ice! YUM!!! Oh and the bars rule! I have NO DOUBT you will do this too!.
