hi my name is angela i just turned 16. i have maternal pku. i dont really mind the taste or the smell of the formula. i drink it straight from a cup. i guess the reason for that is because i have been on the diet ever since i was like a day old so i dont really mind it that much anymore. i have had many different types of the formula though. first i had orange cream that was gross then i went to an unflavored formula i just mix sugar with that and now i drink chocolate phenylade at home and i drink pku coolers here at school that way no one will ask me what im drinking and i feel so much better.
