Slim•Fast® introduces its best tasting shakes ever

Richer, creamier shakes help you go from now to “wow”

Englewood Cliffs, NJ (October 10, 2011) – Slim-Fast®, the weight-loss brand that has helped millions of people experience “wow” moments for more than three decades, has announced a makeover of its own. Slim-Fast is introducing the brand’s richest, creamiest and best-tasting shakes ever in new, convenient on-the-go bottles.

“Whether it’s an upcoming wedding, a reunion or swimsuit season, we know that roughly a third of women diet twice a year with a specific event in mind; however, losing weight shouldn’t mean sacrificing taste,” said Kathy O'Brien, vice president foods, Unilever U.S. “Our new Slim-Fast shakes make it even easier – and tastier – for dieters to walk into a room and wow the crowd.”

A recent taste test conducted by Slim-Fast revealed that both current and non-Slim-Fast users prefer the taste of the new, bottled shakes to the brand’s canned shakes.

“Slim-Fast’s new, deliciously convenient shakes not only taste great but will satisfy hunger up to four hours,” said Ali Auerbach, M.S., R.D., and Slim-Fast Registered Dietitian. “The new size and bottle shape provide a more convenient solution that’s packed with 10 grams of protein, 5 grams of fiber and 24 essential vitamins and minerals.”

Slim-Fast’s balanced and proven approach to weight loss is supported by more than 45 published, clinical studies. The all-new Slim-Fast shakes are part of the Slim-Fast 3•2•1 Plan™ and product line, a proven method to meet weight-loss goals quickly, conveniently and safely. The plan includes three snacks, two shakes or meal replacements bars and one nutritious, balanced, 500-calorie meal of your choice.

Beginning October 17, Slim-Fast will offer a “Buy It Now” option on its official Facebook page that will provide consumers with the opportunity to order the all-new Slim-Fast shakes and other Slim-Fast products quickly, conveniently and directly through a custom tab. Visitors can learn more and engage with the brand at The new shakes will also begin to appear on retail shelves this month and will be available in the diet and nutrition sections of retailers nationwide including Walmart, Target, Safeway, Walgreens and Kroger and on Flavors of the new Slim-Fast shakes include:

  • Creamy Milk Chocolate
