I was really looking forward to trying Optimum Nutrition’s Delicious Strawberry. I love most berry-flavoured things, so I had high hopes.
Flavourwise, it doesn’t disappoint. It’s not too sweet, and doesn’t taste like completely fake strawberries (kind of like a milkshake with a couple of real strawberries chucked in). It has a smell of something like medicine, but that doesn’t eventuate when tasted.
Texturewise… There were little lumps of powder 😦 I am not sure if this is because I didn’t shake it immediately after pouring the milk in, or if it is just the way it is. For the record, I shook it up about 20 secs after pouring the milk. Normally I screw the shaker lid on as fast as possible and shake it up and put the milk away afterwards. Would this have an effect on texture?
After leaving it for a few minutes, the lumps mostly dissolved.
Looking at the macros, it’s pretty decent. 10 calories less than ON’s Double Rich Chocolate, with the same amount of protein.
This flavour has my vote so far!
