FINALLY received my order today.  I ordered on 9/28, it shipped on 10/2 and arrived today, 10/19 (three weeks).  The site mentioned to indicate what 3 samples I wanted but they shipped 3 oatmeal instead.  Don't think I'll be ordering from them again.

Hey Jedsend.  Sorry you had a bad experience.  I've always found these folks to be top notch.  I just got in another order today, and it had my free cereal and the 3 free samples I requested.  On your receipt, does it correctly list the samples you asked for in the "special instructions" box?  

I've never had them make a single mistake.  What samples did you ask for?  Maybe you asked for something that doesn't qualify as a free sample (only the stuff that comes 7 to a box is eligible as a sample).

Regarding the shipping time, I doubt they have much control over it after it leaves their door.  If it took 3 weeks, the postal service is probably to blame.

Speaking of having received my order, I got lots of new things to try this time.  While I'd love to try them all in a single day, that won't work from a calorie counting standpoint.   :p

Today I had a bag of the BBQ flavor ProtiDiet Snacks.  I also ordered the Sour Cream and Onion flavor but haven't tried those yet.  I thought the BBQ were very good.  I ordered a whole box of each, so it was a leap of faith.

Since someone else said the chocolate chip cookies weren't so hot, I requested my 3 free samples to be: 1 chocolate chip cookie, 1 peanut butter cookie, and 1 oriental soy strips.  Will report on those when I try them.

Also, since my order was over $99 I got a free box of WonderSlim Breakfast Cereal (they sent the Cinnamon Crisp flavor).  Haven't tried that yet either -- maybe in the morning.

None of these items are Dr. B approved.  For the items that are the same as the Dr. B clinics sell, see this post.

Just got my order today.  I ordered it exactly a week ago.  Order was shipped with exactly what I requested including the free samples.  Bad news is that I got dinged for $16 in taxes/duties.  The total order was $80.  Very satisfied with the quickness.  Guess its just a hit and miss again with the duties.

You know, I was going to suggest that maybe they shipped his order by turtle to punish him for doing the double-discount code trick (that no longer works), but I resisted.   :D

Jedsend...I just hope you find this as funny as we do!  After all, we're not the ones stuck with the oatmeal..... :lol:  :laugh:  :D

Edit:  I'm a little punchy on quite a build up of 222's today (aspirin + codeine) for my migraine....and this laugh has felt so good.

My head killed today too!  Gotta love codeine! :-)  I had 4 back-to-back bars.

I thought that about the "double-dipping"....funny.

In truth though, I like the Detour bars from Costco which are $1 each. And now we're on maintenance there's much more variety of foods to choose from that ordering from DietDirect doesn't make much sense.  I suppose if you like the products they offer, then great.  I'm just not convinced there's any "gotta have 'ems" that I can't find an equivalent something locally.  Now, if they had Joseph's Pita....!

Hey, I like the oatmeal -- I order it 5 boxes at a time.  Of course I don't eat it as oatmeal ('cause it's not so good as oatmeal), I add it to the blender when making my pre-workout shake to add 15g of protein, some great apple cinnamon flavor, and some thickness.

Can't wait till my first order arrives.

Here's what I got:

Wonderslim Double Berry Bars
Wonderslim Cinnamon Bars
Wonderslim CocoaCafe Bars
ProtiDiet Honey Nut Cereal
Low Carb Isopure Whey Protein
ProtiDiet Pancakes
ProtiDiet Oatmeal (I like it as Oatmeal!)

I asked for free samples of the following:
Nacho Cheese Pasta
Sloppy Joe Mix
Dulche De Leche Pudding

I wonder which bars taste better, the ProtiDiet Wildberry or the Wonderslim Double Berry.

So many yummy protein options coming my way!
