I’m curious. Did you try other complete food shakes before Jake? What made you dismiss them? What made you stick with Jake?
The first shake I tried was Joylent (now JimmyJoy Plennyshakes). I think they tried to taste like milkshakes do, and I found them way to sweet to drink. I also believe I felt some unpleasent blood sugar spikes after drinking them (although I can't prove that with measurements!).
I then tried the following ones, which I all disliked because of their taste:
- Stonershake (now GetLently)
- Veetal (you had to shake it regularly or end up with a yummy bitter pea proteine sediment)
I stuck with Nano for quite some time actually. The taste was okay, although slightly bitter. But I made some bad experiences with their support once a package didn’t arrive and their free shaker was a cheap BlenderBottle knock-off which fell apart after some time. I also head a general feeling that the vendor didn’t put too much effort or love into the product, which made me look for something else.
Then I tried Jake Light and finally Jake Classic. The presentation of the product actually has a lot to do with why I stick with it for now. The updated packaging and recipe, accompanied by explaining blog posts, makes me think that there’s actually put a lot of love/effort in the product. Also the existence of this board and the amazing customer support (cheers Casper and Eva ) shows that the Jake folks care about customers as well. I also enjoy the current recipe very much, altough I’d like to get a better understanding of it and the reasoning behind te composition, but that’s rarely available for other foods as well.
Now, what about you?
