Before I get into the review of this protein powder I want you all to understand how much I truly love my GNC chocolate egg protein powder.
I have repurchased it 8 times and rarely allow myself to venture away from it. I love everything about my beloved egg protein powder BUT when the lovely people from Twin Labs reached out to me and asked if I was interested in trying the chocolate whey protein from their new CLEAN SERIES, I couldn't resist.
Another thing I should mention: I do not like whey protein powder.
I have tried a few different brands/flavors and have never been a fan so I was a little weary when it came to making my shake.
The stats and ingredients on this particular powder are great
Again I have to compare it to the egg protein I have been drinking for over a year.
CLEAN SERIES: 110 calories-23g Protein- Gluten Free-Clean Ingredients
EGG PROTEIN: 120 calories-21g Protein-Not Gluten free-No clean ingredients
So far so good
But then I took the plastic off of the top and this happened:
HUGE fail in my opinion.
Thankfully I snapped my photos before opening.
The protein powder smells like a mix of chocolate and coconut, which to me is a win, but if you're not a coconut fan [like Eddie] you wouldn't like this.
I made my usual dinner shake
Unsweetened almond milk
Frozen berries [this shake was just strawberries]
I would give this protein a 7.5 out of 10
I'm not sure I would purchase this on my own but I liked it and would recommend it to anyone that is looking for a clean/gluten free protein powder.
Thank you Twin Labs for sending this for review!
