Out of curiosity I ordered the sample pack of all the Syntrax protein powder flavors. I’m going to tell you what I think of them, but first a few things about me. I don’t mind sweet flavors, but really over the top sweetness is not my favorite. Also, I mix the packets with 8oz water – more than that and they taste really diluted. Some would probably taste better with milk, but I didn’t want the calories.
On to the reviews!
|Apple Ecstasy||apple jolly rancher, but not overly sweet||*|
|Cappuccino||cinnamon milk with a chemical aftertaste|
|Caramel Macchiato (contains caffeine)||sweet instant coffee|
|Carribean Cooler||not too sweet. tastes slightly like pineapple and coconut.|
|Chocolate Truffle||chocolate milk||*|
|Crystal Sky||it’s turquoise blue! tastes like a sweet/tart fruit punch.||*|
|Double Stuffed Cookie||almost tastes like Oreos. a chocolate sludge settles to the bottom of the glass.|
|Fuzzy Navel||deliciously peachy! really good!||*|
|Lemon Tea||sweet lemon tea. slight honey taste. would be good over ice.||*|
|Pink Grapefruit||pretty grapefruity, but not tart enough.|
|Roadside Lemonade||nice honey-lemonade flavor||*|
|Strawberry Kiwi||initially tastes a little of strawberry with a weird aftertaste. maybe that’s the kiwi? doesn’t taste like any kiwi I’ve ever had.|
|Strawberry Mousse||vague strawberry flavor|
|Twisted Cherry||lackluster cherry flavor|
|Vanilla Bean Torte||watery vanilla|
|Vanilla Latte (contains caffeine)||sweet vanilla instant coffee|
|Wild Grape||a very sweet and sour grape Sweetart|
* I’d buy this one again.
I think I’ll buy a tub of the Chocolate Truffle when I run out of current protein powders. I don’t think I’d get sick of it, and it was really creamy and tasty.
