Got this sample in from MRM, and tried it out as a mid afternoon protein boost. The flavor is Rich Vanilla, and here's what I thought of it:
Mixed with 2oz of 2% milk per the package directions and the flavor was extremely good. I added water to the mix after my first sip as it was clumping at that concentration and the flavor stayed good. Overall, it was a nice smooth vanilla flavor, reminding me of the flavor of melted vanilla ice cream, mmmmm. This the BEST vanilla flavor that I have tried so far.
Serving Profile: 8/10
The sample came in a half serving package, and a full serving comes out to a smaller 18g of protein with negligle amounts of fat and carbs (1g and 2g respectively). I'd like to see a larger amount of protein per serving. Although I can always do multiple scoops, I'd rather see a company provide a slightly larger scoop that has an amount of protein more along the lines of other brands (~22g). Overall, nothing special, but it's protein, so an 8/10 is what it gets.
Blender bottle is broken and currently unreplaced, so I had to mix this with a cup and spoon. At the recommended 2oz of milk for a half serving of whey, the mixture came out extremely clumpy, although delicious (as noted above). I added about 2 oz more water and stirred vigorously, reducing most of the clumps. Overall, I'd recommend with going about a cup per scoop/serving of this protein and you should be set, especially if you have a shaker bottle.
All in all, I really enjoyed this protein, and would consider buying it for my next protein resupply. Thanks for the opp to try this out MRM!
