Nectar – Roadside Lemonade

Roadside Lemonade

Welcome to the critically acclaimed world of Nectar™!  Gone are the days of low quality whey protein.  Gone are the days of those blah-tasting protein drinks that promise much but deliver little.  Nectar™, once-and-for-all, breaks the mold by combining Promina™, the highest quality Whey Protein Isolate ever developed, with a flavoring system that is so fruitilicious that you will never drink a different whey protein shake ever again.
If you like the refreshing taste of fruit juice, you’ll love Nectar™!  With its mouthwatering fruit juice flavors, Nectar™ is truly a protein drink you will look forward to drinking each and every day.  Whether it be Apple Ecstasy, Twisted Cherry, Caribbean Cooler, Strawberry Kiwi, Fuzzy Navel, Roadside Lemonade, Crystal Sky or Lemon Tea, Nectar™ will keep you coming back for more.
What’s more?  Well, we did something totally amazing by engineering Nectar™ to be so delicious that you can eat it right out of the container.  Imagine putting a protein powder in your mouth and it tasting like candy.  Imagine this protein powder having ZERO carbs and ZERO fat.  Stop imagining!  We’ve brought you Nectar™!

Holy Foam, Batman!

I heard about the samples that Syntrax was doing.  You can contact them and get 10 samples of their Nectar for just $10 (which includes the shipping) and I think this is a great deal.  And so I did.

I picked Lemonade for the stupidest reason.  I read some junk science report that said that because RNY patients are more likely to get kidney stones post-op, we should drink lemonade.  Which is stupid because if someone actually, you know, reads the article, it discusses that the problem is calcium carbonate, and well, we know that calcium citrate helps this (as well as actually absorbing in RNY guts where carbonate doesn’t).

So in it goes.  And the very first thing I notice is the absolute massive amount of foam in this shaker cup.  I mean, massive.  I let it sit for 5 minutes.

Wow. Foam.

And there we have it, still foamy all to hell.

So I went with it.

It’s a bit thicker than normal lemonade, but it’s the same taste as regular lemonade.  AND IT’S GOOD.

I don’t feel any dryness on my lips after a sip, and no drying in my mouth.

I like it.  It’s good, only 90 calories for 23g of protein, it’s whey isolate and this tastes good.

    That is the ONLY Nectar flavor that I was able to remotely stand. The peach was disgusting. I wondered if this one would be good with some strawberries thrown in & frozen.

  2. Michelle says:

    I’ll be ordering my nectar samples tomorrow :) Thanks for the always honest reviews!
    Do you think it would still taste okay if thinned out a little bit?

  3. Andrea says:

    You can always start at 8oz, then add a bit at a time. The directions say 8-16oz dependent on tastes. I just know that I tend to like stronger flavored drinks.

  4. Yvonne says:

    I love both the Roadeside Lemonade and the Fuzzy Navel mixed with a Wild Strawberry Crystal Light. I drink one almost every day!

  5. Andrea says:

    You people that can drink aspertame (ie Crystal Light) make me jealous!

  6. [...] sample number two is Pink Grapefruit.  I liked the Roadside Lemonade pretty well, so why not keep up with the sours?  And looking online, this appears to be a fairly [...]
