Would you consider buying Swisse Me smoothies in the future? If yes, why?

I'd love to buy these again. All the family loved them. They are much better than the added sugar ones you can buy from supermarket's. I felt like I was making a healthier choice.

Would you recommend these smoothies to a friend? If yes, why?

Yes for the convenience for lunch boxes!

What did you like or dislike about these smoothies?
^I liked how convenient the packaging Is, it doesn't take up much room in your bag & that you can screw the lid back on if you need to!
What I disliked was the texture; it wasn't what I consider a smoothie texture; more like Baby desert Jars!^

What size smoothie would you prefer to consume as a healthy snack portion? A) 120g pouch or B) 150g pouch.^
I'd say 120g as with the puréed texture, 150g would be a bit much!^

How convenient do you find the Swisse Me smoothie pouch format on a scale from 1-10 (10 being the best)?^
10, loved the packaging, and that you could pop the screw lid back on if you haven't finished it; well thought out!^

How tasty did you find Swisse Me smoothies on a scale of 1-10 (10 being the best).^
Out of all the Flavours I liked 2, I didn't like the mix of flavours, as some were questionable. Really enjoyed the one with basil seeds though!^

Would you consider buying Swisse Me smoothies in the future? If yes, why?^
I personally wouldn't, only because I didn't enjoy the texture & didn't really like the flavours! ^

Would you recommend these smoothies to a friend? If yes, why?^
I would if they were into this sort of thing, but again, these aren't your typical smoothie, I found they have an acquired taste!

P.s the packaging they came in was so lovely! I'm reusing them^smile

WilmaJean Mon 11-May-20 14:31:13

What did you like or dislike about these smoothies?
Range of flavours was great and the convenient packaging - although it would be better if the pouches were easier to recycle. The thought of the added collagen was a little off putting.
What size smoothie would you prefer to consume as a healthy snack portion? A) 120g pouch or B) 150g pouch.
120g was fine and allows for quite a few to be under 100 calories

Would you consider buying Swisse Me smoothies in the future? If yes, why?
Yes as they are convenient as an on-the-go snack and are packed full of fruit.

Y*es, I've already done so, particularly for friends who are health conscious.*

Testers, please give your feedback by answering the questions below as well as completing the survey we have emailed you:

What did you like or dislike about these smoothies?

Mostly tasty, few flavours disgusting. Shame that some of the names are off putting but the taste usually good. Nice size portion and handy to be able to screw lid back on.

What size smoothie would you prefer to consume as a healthy snack portion? A) 120g pouch or B) 150g pouch.

120g as I think smaller snacks are better

How convenient do you find the Swisse Me smoothie pouch format on a scale from 1-10 (10 being the best)?

10. Look strong and sturdy, wouldn't be worried about them bursting or leaking in a bag. Being able to rescrew a lid on is really handy. Really good for on the go.

How tasty did you find Swisse Me smoothies on a scale of 1-10 (10 being the best).

7. Mostly delicious but there were a couple of flavours that were absolutely disgusting.

Would you consider buying Swisse Me smoothies in the future? If yes, why?

Yes if they were slightly cheaper as I think they are great but not competitive enough for the price.

Would you recommend these smoothies to a friend? If yes, why?

Yes if they wanted healthy on the go snacks and were happy to pay these prices

1. What did you like or dislike about these smoothies?

Some of the flavour combinations were a bit interesting and the collagen ones made me think twice as it didnt state where the collagen ones came from.
However I liked the convenience and the grab and go aspect of them. And although they were primarily for me to try, my 10 year old also had a taste and enjoyed some of the flavours.

2. What size smoothie would you prefer to consume as a snack?

120g. I felt the bigger 150g ones were more of a meal than a snack

3. Very. The lids didnt leak, they didnt need refrigerating and one even survived being stomped on accidentally by a small child!

4. Some of the flavour combinations were a bit interesting and not what I would have chosen if I was making some made smoothies. The breakfast ones were especially enjoyable and I intend to try these again. I cant really give a rating for this as the ratings changed depending on which ones I was trying.

5. Yes, see above

6. If it was the kind if thing they were into, or were looking for grab and go breakfast options then yes I would.

Whichroomtovisit Mon 11-May-20 14:41:34

What did you like or dislike about these smoothies?
The pouches were convenient and felt premium, good range of flavours. Some of the textures made me feel like I was eating baby food pouches and I think some of the flavours weren’t labelled according to the prominent taste.

What size smoothie would you prefer to consume as a healthy snack portion? A) 120g pouch or B) 150g pouch.

A) 120g.

How convenient do you find the Swisse Me smoothie pouch format on a scale from 1-10 (10 being the best)?

10

How tasty did you find Swisse Me smoothies on a scale of 1-10 (10 being the best).

7. Some were nice probably a 10, others I found very unappealing.

Would you consider buying Swisse Me smoothies in the future? If yes, why?
Yes, I liked some of the flavours, mainly the boost me range. Was handy to have and could see them as useful once back in the office for an afternoon pick me up. The breakfast range would be fab for morning commuting but most of the flavours didn’t quite satisfy.

Would you recommend these smoothies to a friend? If yes, why?

Yes, they are convenient and a lot of them are tasty. They beat a ‘coffee only’ breakfast or afternoon junk ‘wake up’ binge.

babba2014 Mon 11-May-20 14:44:16

What did you like or dislike about these smoothies?

I'm not really good with trying out different foods/drinks. What I liked is that the simple ones were good but some were too out there for me. I didn't realise this when signing up for the trial otherwise I would have not signed up.

What size smoothie would you prefer to consume as a healthy snack portion? A) 120g pouch or B) 150g pouch.

120g pouch

How convenient do you find the Swisse Me smoothie pouch format on a scale from 1-10 (10 being the best)?

9

How tasty did you find Swisse Me smoothies on a scale of 1-10 (10 being the best).

Depends on the flavour. Some 9 whilst others were a 3.

Would you consider buying Swisse Me smoothies in the future? If yes, why?

Certain flavours, maybe but mostly no as I prefer to drink smoothies from a bottle/cup. The pouch kind of seems extra.

Would you recommend these smoothies to a friend? If yes, why?

I would for people who like trying very different things. For people who like the simple things, probably not as buying a bottle from the local shop is much easier to drink from. It's interesting but maybe a bit too out there.

jacqui5366 Mon 11-May-20 14:51:12

What did you like or dislike about these smoothies?

I liked the ease of use, the fact I could take one out with me (especially when the gyms are open again). The variety of flavours were great, and were perfect for a breakfast, which I what I used the majority of mine on. After keeping them in the fridge it was a treat to have one. The only thing I initially disliked was the texture of some of the oat based smoothies.

What size smoothie would you prefer to consume as a healthy snack portion? A) 120g pouch or B) 150g pouch.

150j pouch

How convenient do you find the Swisse Me smoothie pouch format on a scale from 1-10 (10 being the best)?

The pouch format was so easy to use, and squeeze every last drop out.

How tasty did you find Swisse Me smoothies on a scale of 1-10 (10 being the best).

I would say a 9, the variety of flavours, ingredients and taste was really good.

Would you consider buying Swisse Me smoothies in the future? If yes, why?

Yes I would, they would be perfect for taking to work, they are easy to use and you do not have to source all of the ingredients, and clean your nutribullet afterwards.

Would you recommend these smoothies to a friend? If yes, why?

Many of my busy friends would love these, they are great smoothie fans, and sometimes do not have the ingredients to make the healthiest smoothies, or have time to have breakfast before the school run, these are perfect for on the go.

Notredamn Mon 11-May-20 14:54:37

Thanks for the opportunity to try these, receiving them made my day.

What did you like or dislike about these smoothies?

I liked the wide variety of flavours, that I felt I was choosing a healthy snack, that they were quite substantial and filling. On the other hand I'm not sure how I'd feel having one of these in the office...would people think I was having a toddler's fruit pouch? On second thoughts, it wouldn't bother me.

What size smoothie would you prefer to consume as a healthy snack portion? A) 120g pouch or B) 150g pouch.

120g pouches were enough for me.

How convenient do you find the Swisse Me smoothie pouch format on a scale from 1-10 (10 being the best)?

10. Totally convenient.

How tasty did you find Swisse Me smoothies on a scale of 1-10 (10 being the best).

I honestly really enjoyed all of these, found them sweet and liked the dominant flavours in each one. The only one I didn't love was the one with quinoa in, purely due to the texture. Personal preference.

Would you consider buying Swisse Me smoothies in the future? If yes, why?

Yes, at the right price. They are handy to have around, an instant snack/boost and are a healthy choice.

Would you recommend these smoothies to a friend? If yes, why?

Yes, for all the reasons above!

Notredamn Mon 11-May-20 14:55:33

Whoops. How tasty: 10.

Jamb16 Mon 11-May-20 14:59:47

What did you like or dislike about these smoothies?
I liked the fact they were different, convenient and healthy.
What size smoothie would you prefer to consume as a healthy snack portion? A) 120g pouch or B) 150g pouch.
120g as a snack is plenty.

10, very convenient.
How tasty did you find Swisse Me smoothies on a scale of 1-10 (10 being the best).
5 - some were much nicer than others imo. I really didn't like the texture of the quinoa ones. However any I wasn't keen on my husband and 6 year old enjoyed.
Would you consider buying Swisse Me smoothies in the future? If yes, why?
Yes- husband has requested a pack of the ginger ones
Would you recommend these smoothies to a friend? If yes, why?
Yes as convenient as different.

BreastOfIntentions0 Mon 11-May-20 15:06:31

What did you like or dislike about these smoothies?
Really liked the convenience of these pouches, and felt like I was adding to my varied diet on a daily basis. Wide range of flavours available which is always good!

What size smoothie would you prefer to consume as a healthy snack portion? A) 120g pouch or B) 150g pouch.
120g is a good size, not too much.

How convenient do you find the Swisse Me smoothie pouch format on a scale from 1-10 (10 being the best)?
Really convenient format, particularly the fact you do not have to refrigerate the pouches when they are unopened which is great when fridge space is at a premium.

How tasty did you find Swisse Me smoothies on a scale of 1-10 (10 being the best).
This was a bit of a mixed bag - some of the breakfast blends I’d give a 9, and some of the energy range I’d have to score down at 1-2.

Would you consider buying Swisse Me smoothies in the future? If yes, why?
Yes, if you had choice as to which pouches you could select. If it was a variety pack pre-chosen I wouldn’t buy again.

Would you recommend these smoothies to a friend? If yes, why?
Yes, for people like me who are on the go all day and want convenient, tasty snacks without guilt!

Miskate Mon 11-May-20 15:45:39

What did you like or dislike about these smoothies?

I liked the taste of some of them, particularly berry and mango ones. The pouch was convenient but slightly offputting as it seemed a lot like baby food. The beetroot and spinach ones didn't taste great.
I was really unwell with food poisoning earlier in the month, so these were good to have when I was feeling better and wanting to get my digestive health back to normal

Yes

Very easy on the go, can be stored for a little while, very healthy and a nice change for breakfast

Many thanks- they were very much appreciated and as a key worker working >50 miles away from my children I really appreciated having these each morning as my breakfast while living away from home! flowers

Breakfastfordinner Mon 11-May-20 15:55:10

What did you like or dislike about these smoothies?
I really liked the simplicity of the smoothies, and the ease of being able to grab one whenever I wanted a snack. I liked that a lot of the flavours were aimed at adults, it would be handy to take one on a picnic/day out/to work. There are a lot of snacks aimed at kids so it was nice to have something a bit more "grown-up". That said, there were a couple of flavours that felt a bit like eating baby food (the Pear one particularly).

What size smoothie would you prefer to consume as a healthy snack portion? A) 120g pouch or B) 150g pouch.
I wouldn't really mind between the two sizes, but let's just say 150g as that means more smoothie! wink

Would you consider buying Swisse Me smoothies in the future? If yes, why?
I probably wouldn't buy a selection box, but if I was able to buy a set of one flavour, or do a pick n mix style selection I would definitely consider buying more. I loved the Chia flavour especially, and the Mango, Quinoa and Coffee Energy ones were particularly nice too.

Would you recommend these smoothies to a friend? If yes, why?
I'd likely recommend to a friend if they were trying to eat healthily and looking for easy snacks to take to work to keep them going through the day, or post-work out.

definately a 10 as a ready prepped smoothie in a re sealable pouch is as convinient as they get.

What did you like or dislike about these smoothies?

I liked the packaging, the reusable lid so once opened you don’t have to finish it all in one go. I liked the coffee based ones and fruit ones. Wasn’t so keen on the cocoa based or quinoa.
