Herbalife Claims The Reason We Didn't Like Their Shakes Is Because We Made Them Without A Blender

We recently had our our co-workers try Herbalife’s Formula 1 shake for the first time. For the most part, people didn’t like the shakes.

Herbalife told us the reason is that we didn’t use a blender for our test. The packaging says stir or blend.

“…we were all disappointed about was the way in which you trialled the shakes – by mixing them with a spoon in a small cup – as it was not representative at all of what a shake should look or taste like,” a company spokesperson said in an email to Business Insider.

“The shakes should be made using a blender and at the bare minimum a handful of ice; and that’s before we get into the many variations of fruits, nuts and other ingredients that can be used to flavour them to taste,” the email said.
