OK, Yes. I cheated on Shakeology today. I know, throw rocks at me. It’s blasphemy. But, If you know me well, you know that 1. I like to try new things, especially health and fitness things and 2. that I am always looking for the best: the best product, the best deal, the best value.
So a company that makes a protein drink called Eat the Bear sent me a packet of protein to try. And it’s like they had a window into my soul. It’s got clean ingredients. And this thing is supposed to taste like a Reese’s peanut butter cup.
So, I tried it. I mixed it with Almond Milk, Just like I do my Shakeology. At first taste I really liked it. It did have that chocolate peanut buttery goodness I was hoping for. BUT…then it was suddenly gone. I couldn’t even get down the last few sips. It just was leaving a yucky after taste. The aftertaste resembled the taste of artificial sweetener.
Now, let’s look at the nutrition you get:
This is probably too hard to read on a photo that I snapped with my phone, but you can see that Shakeology packs in more nutrition just by looking a the size of the labels.
So, that being said. I would try ETB again and maybe mix it with water and see how that impacts the overall taste. And if all you are looking for is protein, this is a clean option and is an average whey protein powder price. Since it is CLEAN I would bump that to a slightly above average VALUE for what you get.
Have you tried other products? What do you think?
