I spotted the Odwalla Strawberry Protein Monster the other day at the grocery store. It has a cute pink look to it with a little cow on the label and the nutrition facts looked promising:
- 20 grams of protein (from soy/dairy sources; I always try to look for whey protein isolate in my shakes)
- 240 calories
- Tons of vitamins.
- Unfortunately, it has a TON of sugar in it.
But the taste...oh my...the taste. Sigh.
It's pretty much like the taste of chewing on a multi-vitamin that isn't supposed to be chewed with a twist of Milk of Magnesia aftertaste. Yuck. I actually couldn't swallow it and spit it out in the sink.
There are other flavors available like vanilla, but I don't think that I'm brave enough to give it a try.
