I'm making each drink one by one (I like keeping involved in the process of making them individually) and use grade b. Since yesterday, I've snacked on light amounts of syrup, especially right before leaving home and when feeling like my Sugar is low (I get hypoglycemic quickly).
Did you go through a pulp stage? It's interesting to hear different experiences.
Oh, the magic bullet! Is it worth the money? Can you really do all those great quick dishes in under 2 minutes? lol... I have enough gadgets but always room for one more.
