And protein shakes & bars do not make my list of Likes! Dry, powdery, familiarly gag-inducing chocolate-esque flavours... Yuck!
Is it wrong that I am thinking longingly of my tinned salmon snack stored in my work refrigerator, while I am choking down a Chocolate Peanut Butter Protein Bar... It can't be the chocolate, or the peanut butter, because those are some of my favourite foods. By process of elimination I am clearly not a fan of fake protein.
Admittedly I have not tried an exhaustive list of products. Merely 3 brands in total I think. It just worried me that they all tasted so similarly disgusting. I tried the shake with water. I tried stirring some powder into my porridge, and I've tried a couple of different bars. All scarily similar in flavour. All gross.
Odd as it may be, I'd rather reach for a tin of John West than suffer through another Maxi-Proto-Concoction...
