Happy Sunday, friends!
I hope you are all having a fantastic weekend!
So I thought I’d switch it up a bit from our regular Pancake lovin’ posts…emphasis on the “lovin'” from last week’s little escapade! 😉 and share a few words on some AMAZING products I’ve been able to try recently. Thanks to being a Fitfluential ambassador, I had the opportunity to sample some new protein supplements from Designer Whey.
A couple of weeks ago I received a box FULL of goodies including protein bars, protein powders, ready-to-drink shakes, and even some to-go mixes!
Since it’s no secret how much I LOVE my snack bars, you can bet that was the first thing I tried out of my little box…
Out of all three of the bars, I liked the chocolate one the best. I SWEAR it tasted like they took a Rice Krispie treat and coated it in Whoppers!
The caramel one was my second favorite, but unfortunately, I didn’t care for the peanut butter…though I do tend to think I’m a bit of a snob when it comes to “healthified” peanut butter-flavored protein/bars….I just thought it tasted kinda fake.
Next up where the Protein 2 Go mixes…
At only 50 calories a piece, they certainly aren’t considered a meal or even a substantial snack, but I love having them around for whenever I accidentally let myself get to “chew your own arm off” status and need a little something to tide me over while I fix up the “real
deal meal”! 😉
007 Tip of the Day: [Mixes] Better when shaken, not stirred! 😉
As for the powders…
I was SUPER excited to try out the white chocolate flavor since, even though I prefer dark chocolate now, I used to practically WORSHIP Hershey’s Cookies and Cream bars when I was younger! Unfortunately, even though there is only 2g of sugar (sweetened with stevia) it was WAY to sweet for my sensitive tastebuds.
The French vanilla is a bit better in my opinion, but still a bit sweet so I’m thinking of adding a little to plain Greek yogurt to try…the tart of the yogurt usually helps cut the taste of overly sweet-tasting things for me.
Thank you SO much, Designer Whey, for the amazing package and a chance to try all your fantastic products!

Have you ever tried any of Designer Whey’s shakes or bars?
What is your favorite high protein snack?
I love my bars, but lately I’ve been totally obsessed with Oikos’s Toasted Coconut yogurt!
