Flavor variations between lots, again

Anyone else notice that the new squircle-shaped cacao tastes different from the previous round version?

Do you think they tweaked the natural/artificial flavors in the drink, or do you think the new plastic bottle is imparting a different flavor to the drink?

To me, it tastes like there’s a new artificial flavor mixed in, almost a “bubble gum” flavor, which distracts from the chocolate flavor. I’m more sensitive than most to flavor variations, but my son noticed it too, without any prompting from me, so it can’t be that subtle.

Try tasting the two versions back to back, at room temperature, for the clearest test.
