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.
