May 22, 2019Reviewer: Kim in Louisiana* Like other recent users, I LOVED Fiberfit in its previous incarnation. It was perfect for sweetening half-gallons of tea at once, was nice and sweet, and the extra fiber was a bonus. And then it stopped being available. The new formula...it's not as sweet. Scratch that, it's massively less sweet than before. I have tried pretty much doubling the amount I use, and my tea is still not as sweet as it used to be. It's more like...barely sweet, even at a dose that would have made the tea undrinkably sweet using the old version.
The manufacturer swears to me that the only thing that changed was the amount of fiber. If that's true, then fiber has magical powers to kill sweetness. The ingredients are basically the same, it's true. But the flavor is NOT. It also has an odd texture, where a liquid gets a bit more "heft" to it than before, but this is something I could probably get used to pretty quickly. No, the taste is the problem.
If they can go back to the old formula, I'll be buying it faithfully once more. It was a great product. But it's not worth it to use a sweetener that cannot sweeten things no matter how much you add. I thought maybe it was just me, but clearly other users are having the same experience. It's a real shame.
2 of 2 people found the following review helpfulOctober 18, 2018Reviewer: A guest* I have used fiberfit for the past 10 years and was at a loss when unable to purchase it for the past 9 months. When i received the email stating it was available again, i ordered 10 bottles! I was disappointed that not only was the price outrageous, but it seems the formula has changed. It used to be 16.99 for 16 oz., now its that for 8ozs. If the taste hadn't changed, i may consider paying that much occasionaly, however, I probably will no longer be using this product. I previously ordered 10 bottles every 3 months but will continue using what i have been while waiting for fiberfit to come back on the market. Thank you.
Editors note: The formula changed to include twice the amount of fiber per serving which is why the bottle is half the size. According to the manufacturer, they got the taste as close as possible to the original, which is the reason it was out of stock for so many months.
