Lose yourself in the taste!


We haven't been able to find a whole lot of info on Centrum's DynaTrim but did uncover some facts.  The commercial doesn't explain much except that you can lose weight from eating DynaTrim, which is actually an "Appetite Suppressant". 

According to a Drug Store News article published on January 21, 1991 the makers of DyanTrim "threw $2.5 million in advertising behind its new product, DynaTrim, on Dec. 30 and 31 alone, said product manager Laurie Shanower, just so people would wake up Jan. 1 knowing about--and (the company hopes) reaching for -- DynaTrim. That was in addition to the $10 million spent since the TV, radio and print ad campaign broke Dec. 12. Altogether, $45 million in trade and consumer advertising will be spent in the first 13 months of DynaTrim's quest to topple Ultra Slim*Fast from its meal replacement throne, Shanower said."

That's a lot of money even for the early 90's! And a pretty catchy song too! Looks pretty tasty if you ask us, but we wonder if it works. Did anyone try this? Let us know!

  4. I remember that if you mixed it in a blender, it became really thick, like a milkshake (even thicker if you used a little more). I really wish I could still buy it.

  5. Just came across your site trying to find any info on WHY they stopped making it. It was a great product. The more you blended it, the thicker it got. The consistency was wonderful, but it was a little bland, so I would put some sugar free cocoa in it!

    Loved this product. Miss it BAD. :(

  6. I happened upon this as a teen and and loved it. The chocolate mousse was all I tried. It was so delicious. Still trying to figure out why it was discontinued. Anyone have any pull with Centrum to fire up production again!!

  7. Slim-Fizz is a unique appetite suppressant which is containing the groundbreaking fibre Glucomannan, which is an organic soluble fibre derived from pure Konjac.
