Honest review from modest consumer/lifter
on January 19, 2011
OK I work out and use protein. That's about it, no other wacky products and maximizing gains is not a goal so much as just being healthy and getting protein. So if you care about how these kinds of products taste and work, then this is the review for you.
Actually it's pretty simple. This stuff tastes VERY MEDIOCRE. That is to say, I rate it just slightly better than say a weight loss shake type product. It is quite convenient no doubt, but no way does this taste even a quarter as good as say 100% whey's products or even syntha-6.
With that said this is "ready to drink" so it is portable. Also, it is not horrible tasting, just not pleasant. Don't drink it thinking it is refreshing like chocolate milk. It is NOT. But in addition to being portable it also has a decent profile; fair amount of protein and limited amount of anything else (calories/other crap).
So in conclusion if you want a lean protein drink and can mix it yourself, 100% Whey blows this stuff out of the water. But for a ready to drink product I have had worse, and it is tolerable and gets the job done. Now you know!
