Metamucil Berry Burst Better Flavor, Same Old Grit

I have started taking fiber supplements and when I was in the store I saw this Berry Burst Metamucil. I thought to myself that that sounded pretty good so I picked up a bottle and took it home.

Boy was I wrong! I guess I shouldn't decide on a fiber supplement by the flavor on the label. I followed the directions on the label adding 1 teaspoon of the Metamucil to an 8 ounce glass of water. As soon as I did that the Metamucil began to swell leaving me with a very thick, very gritty berry flavored mess. It was very hard to swallow, literally.

I would not recommend this supplement to anyone looking to add fiber to their diet and I will certainly never purchase it again. They may have changed the flavor but they certainly have done nothing to improve the texture of Metamucil.
