What's happened to For Goodness Shakes powder mixes

Anybody know why you can't buy For Goodness Shakes in powder form any more?

You can buy the bottles made up, but they're flipping expensive

I don't use SIS Rego because it gives me really bad gut ache, FGS tasted nice and didn't require milk as an extra cost

So any alternatives or answers to why its not available?

    Chocolate milk. Available from all good garage forecourts...

    Not an exact answer but the bottles are usually reduced in Sainsburys to £1.10

    But I prefer banana :-)

    Still an expensive option

    Yep, but inconvenient to buy in bulk compared to the powdered version.

    Time to order extra milk and buy some Chrusha banana and strawberry flavour mix, not a big fan of chocolate milk

    Have you tried Huel? You get a free t shirt.

    You could also just improvise your own with some instant oats/dextrose and whey powder.

    Personally I came to the conclusion that mixing them up was too much hassle, now I just go for water and some kind of protein bar/flapjack.

    Last time I looked chocolate protein drinks were £0.69 at Home Bargains, £1 at B&M. Either work for me.
    The Wife complained for months about the empty pot of bike oil on the hall stand; so I replaced it with a full one.

    Didn't they become re-branded as Shake'n'Vac?

    For Goodness Shake n Vac - that's the one.

    Personally, I prefer the more profane version - 'For Fcks Shake'...

    £1.30 a time is about twice my Home Bargains price (£0.69), money that could have been spent on the bike :-)

    Hi
    Did anyone find FGN powder sachets anywhere?

    Need some or take abroad on a trip to France, did not like the OTE or HI 5 stuff.

    Don’t want the made up bottles sat in a tent for a week :shock:

    Cheers
