The cost is unreasonable though, and I discourage anyone from buying it. There are better tasting, cheaper alternatives available for sure and no need to encourage this type of pricing.
Everyone is entitled to their opinion, but what alternatives do you recommend then that are better tasting/cheaper but also contain similar to what vega wholefood optimizer contains i.e a good solid multivitamin/mineral blend(i.e citrate absorbable forms of vits/mins) so that alone eliminates my need for a Vitamin D and Vitamin B12 supplement, which utilizes 4 different protein sources so better amino profile than say hemp alone and then the rest of the little extras such as maca, chlorella, omega-3s, enzymes, probiotic and prebiotic blend, for a couple of quid a serving i don't mind justifying its cost. People are happy enough to spend a couple of quid on a builder bar, when it doesn't contain anything near the nutrition a serving of vega does.
The Vanilla Chai wholefood optimizer has grown to be one of my favorite breakfasts as nutritionally it is very rounded and more of a meal replacement rather than just a stand alone protein source, i personally feel much better on a 2 scoop shake than i do starting my day of with just carbs like i used to with oats/cereals which would leave me bloated and low energy.
