ISS Oh Yeah – Vanilla Creme

ISS Oh Yeah RTD Drinks

The milkshake-like taste of our 14oz. OhYeah! Ready-To-Drink (RTD) shakes deliver 32 grams of portable, muscle-building protein with an incredible, unmatched taste. Made with fresh diafiltered milk, OhYeah! shakes are extremely low in carbs, sugar, and 100% lactose-free. The OhYeah! RTD is available in 5 award winning flavors and was recently awarded the #1 Nutritional Shake in America by the American Masters of Taste Foundation. Whether you’re an extreme athlete, carb-conscious dieter or you simply want to maintain lean muscle mass, OhYeah! ready–to–drink shakes exceed expectations in every possible way.

Okay, I’ve been remiss in actually reviewing several of these.  I’ve done reviews of the Bananas and Creme and the Chocolate Milkshake.  I’ve been sitting on  several cases of these that I found on sale at my local grocer (GREAT price) that I just haven’t gotten into.  After reading about a group of post-ops that routinely have 4-6 shakes a day (!!! !!! !!!) I thought maybe I would dig into the fridge and have one of these Vanilla Creme’s that has been looking at me for some time, taunting me, just waiting for a review to be written.

So I crack it open, and it’s got a good sweet smell.  First sip is good — and so is the second.  This is what I like about this brand — it’s easy to get down.  It’s got a good taste.

It’s a bit thinner than some of the other flavors in the Oh Yeah! line, but not super thin that you think of milk.  I get the teeniest hint of grit in it, but not enough to say “nuh-uh” to it.  It does leave a minor “protein” taste on my lips — a bit of dryness — but not enough to be put off by it at all, especially when countered with this yummy taste.

The original size is a bit large for a beginner post-op — but there are smaller sizes available that are 18g of protein.  That would be perfect (and, well, ADORABLE) for a brand new baby pouch.

The stats are pretty decent as well –

These are a pretty good choice to have, especially if you are in need of a RTD for an emergency fix while out and about, at work, etc.  Of course you will pay more because it is an RTD rather than a powder — if this was available in a powder I’d buy it.

As it is, I love this shake as my RTD vanilla — it’s a great thing to keep in my fridge for when I’m about to head out and need to avoid eating something I shouldn’t.  And let’s face it — we all do that more than we should.

Generally, best price available at Netrition.com for the 14oz size, and amazon.com for the 8oz size.
