       I really don't have too much advice on the chocolate flavour as I don't like chocolate to begin with ....some ideas I did do with the vanilla was to make sure they are very COLD like I would put a few in the freezer just long enough to become somewhat slushy and I enjoyed that a great deal....I'm sure someone will be able to give you more ideas for the chocolate....I just thought they were gross before during and after surgery....all the best to you on your journey

Some people are heating it up and having it as hot chocolate.  You could add peppermint extract to make it a mint chocolate.  Also you could add decaf coffee crystals and lots of ice for an iced mocha.  I find the shakes already sweet, so I try not to add any additional sweeteners.

If you don't like them I would just return the unopened box.  They cost too much money to waste!

Your tastes may change after surgery so don't panic just yet. Also, you can return anything to Costco, even if it's been opened and used, seriously anything, anytime.

Another option would be to open them and use them as a base for a shake by add other stuff and whizzing it up in the blender.  Lots of ice blended will help if you don't like the taste and make it sort of like a milkshake texture, which can be nice.  Just experiment with adding different flavours until you find one you like.  I like adding plain cocoa powder and coconut extract, that is my personal favourite.

you could try adding some skim milk into it to cut out the sweetness and make it taste more like a chocolate milk.  Plus added protein

I don't mind the chocolate at all but I will say that I don't like the smell and I do find that sometimes that will turn me off and make it taste yucky.  So when I drink it I try to avoid the smell.  Also, the colder the better for sure.
