Very good
Some of us must taste an ingredient that others don't - and it's unpleasant.
With "taste" ratings ranging from "terrible with strange after-taste" to "tastes great" I wonder if some of us have a genetic taste sensitivity to something in this that other people don't have. I had one glass of it, and I can't drink it. I don't think it's just the stevia derivative that bothers me, though it may be a component. There are one or two other ingredients I'm not familiar with. In any case, definitely some of us taste something in this that is *not* the chocolate, doesn't taste like peas or other familiar listed ingredients, and is unpalatable. And yes, the awful taste lingers as an aftertaste. If this were returnable, I would send it back.

It had a very good chocolate flavor. My smoothie in the morning turned out to a bit thicker than usual, perhaps due to the added tapioca starch. I used a spatula to scrape out of the blender.
