Afternoon all. So, I started my Vivonex Plus diet today. Vanilla flavored! It tastes like waffle cones, with an aftertaste that makes me think of duck feces.

Anyone have any kind of preference? Suggestion? I'm scared to put in anything for flavoring, because that'd mean stuff would go to my large bowel. I understand that Vivonex is pre-digested and gets absorbed in the early small intestine, so I don't want to add anything that would ignore that. However, if I can't tolerate them, I can't tolerate them, and I'll do whatever I can.

So if anyone's found a more tolerable flavor, something that makes it's less yucky, or even more tolerable brand, I'd love suggestions.
