@MAUREEN - As of now, Orgain does not have immediate plans for a non-dairy option. Andrew confirmed that this is definitely on their radar as they are constantly coming up with innovating new lines!

Thank you for developing a drink that meets the needs of hunger challenged people. Chemo and radiation can make you lose your appetite but it also can leave sores in the mouth and throat that make eating painful. Liquid nutrition had to be better than Ensure or gatorade. Good luck with your future sales and thanks again for all you have done.

I have gastroparesis and Orgain has been a life saver for me. I wish the price wasn't so high.

I live in a less populated area and we don't have this here. Can you help get this into my right aid store here or other? If I order online the shipping puts it out of my reach. I live in Houghton Lake, Michigan.

@MARTHA - Thanks for your question. According to the Orgain website, they do list Rite Aid as a retailer of theirs. If you have contacted Rite Aid to sell the product with no luck, I would suggest getting in touch with Orgain directly. You can find their contact information at http://drinkorgain.com/orgain_html/contactus.html. I hope this helps!

@NATALIE - I would encourage you to ask your nephew's doctors if this is okay to add to his diet. You can find the entire ingredient list and nutritional facts on Orgain's website at http://drinkorgain.com/orgain_html/ingredients.html. I would also reach out to Orgain if they have any coupons or samples to provide. After chatting with his doctor, if you decide to purchase Orgain at a Whole Foods Market, you can always return the product with a receipt if he ends up not enjoying the taste. Since he's drinking chocolate flavors now, they do have a Creamy Chocolate Fudge option.

I am another who has had difficulty finding a ready-to-drink nutrional beverage that is free of all the 'Bad' stuff. I need something without soy, wheat, corn, sugar, artificail flavorings, colors, preservatives and dairy .............goats milk would be great as would the cultured dairy with beneficial probiotics!

What an inspiring story! i absolutely love this product and have recommended it to my sister who doesn't always get a chance to eat healthy meals on the go. I use it after a workout, or when I need a quick meal on the go, especially lunch.. It is very filling. My trainer suggested drinking protein shakes after a workout to kick start the recovery process. I appreciate that Orgain is low in sugars as I am pre diabetic and must keep an eye on blood glucose. I also appreciate that is it jam packed with real food and vitamins. Good stuff, keep up the good work.

I got really sick over a year ago, lost about 20 lbs. didn't need to lose. Discovered Orgain Vanilla Bean.. Loved it. Recently noticed the last shipment that the drink wasn't the same taste. Just found out Orgain removed some antioxidants, added Stevia. It tastes entirely different. Not good. Not sure the reason, but I will no longer purchase. It was the most refreshing drink and was helping me gain some weight.

I thought I had a bad case of the Chocolate and Vanilla and the retailer didn't know of any changes. If the change of ingredients was plainly revealed on packaging or somewhere, anywhere then I would have known to expect a change. I need to return these with stevia. Your website lists the ingredients I expect but these are not what are on the shelves in retail stores -Natural Foods Warehouse-Georgia, Whole Foods-Georgia. Why the change? The new taste is not good. There should have been some warning as to the new formula before wasting money on this - August 2013 expiration dates -these taste horrible and look like something is wrong with the product. Please explain.

@AJIKE - I'm sorry you aren't happy with the product. If you purchased it at our stores, you may return the rest of the case for a refund.

@JANA - If you cannot find it at your local WFM, you can check on their website at http://drinkorgain.com/ to find other retailers.

Is Whole Foods carrying the version of Orgain WITH Stevia or the other version? I understand there have been some changes in recent months and would like more information on what Whole Foods is currently carrying. Thank you VERY much!

@CHARITY - Since our products vary between locations, I would suggest that you reach out to your local store to see which variety they have in stock. You can find a list of store info at http://www.wholefoodsmarket.com/stores/list.
