Horley’s Sculpt: Vanilla Creme

After the great success with Balance Vanilla, I thought that Horley’s vanilla offering would be very similar.

It’s… okay. Still has that “rubbery” whey flavour, and not as strong-tasting as the Balance Vanilla. It also has a milk powder flavour, like milk biscuits! I like milk biscuits so this is a good thing. It’s not too sweet though, and it froths up quite a lot. The texture is slightly gritty (like tiny particles, rather than sand). 

Like the other Sculpt flavour, it’s lower in calories, and as a result also lower in protein than the other choices. I’ve decided that for women = lower calories = less protein.

I’d try this flavour again if I was in a pinch – I got these sachets from the supermarket for about $2.50 NZD each. The protein powder offerings at the supermarket are limited – and more expensive than buying protein powder online.

  1. Huh, I think it’s quite good but if it’s not rating so high in your experiment, then perhaps I’m missing out on something that is even better! Mind you, I have it with peaches and yoghurt.

  2. If you still have the balance vanilla powder packet, can you check and see if it has artificial sweetener in it? Hopefully it doesn’t.

    1. I don’t have a packet for that one unfortunately – my workmate Mel gave me a couple of scoops in a Tupperware container! I believe it was the Physique range… http://www.balancesportsnutrition.com/products/product-details/_prod_/Balance-Physique-Body-Tone-?sv=vanilla&fpcmid=16259&allwords=true&allcategories=True&query=PABzAHQAcgBpAG4AZwA%2bADEAOgAwADoAMAA6ADoAfAAyADoAMAA6ADAAOgA6AHwAMwA6ADAAOgAwADoAOgB8ADUAOgAwADoAMAA6ADoAfAA2ADoAMAA6ADAAOgA6AHwANwA6ADAAOgAwADoAOgB8ADgAOgAwADoAMAA6ADoAfAA8AC8AcwB0AHIAaQBuAGcAPgA%3d&isAlpha=false

      I recommend the Reativ powder if you’re worried about artificial sweetening/flavouring. It has no added flavouring, and would be very good mixed into a smoothie. It is quite mild-tasting when it’s mixed just with water, just like the whey that’s left after making fresh cheese.
