Nectar – Pink Grapefruit

Pink Grapefruit -- Mmm.

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™!

So 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 new flavor as even Netrition doesn’t have it.

Holy Foam. AGAIN!

And just like the Roadside Lemonade, there is MASSIVE foaming when I shake it up.  I’m used to a fair amount of foam.. foam is to be expected somewhat — but this?  This seems a bit excessive.

So I set it aside for 5 minutes –

5-minutes later..

So the flavor is pretty good.  It’s not quite as good as the Roadside Lemonade IMHO, but it’s not bad at all.  It has a bite on first taste, but then the flavor seems to wash out — and I mixed it with 8oz of water, which is the lowest amount of suggested by the company (8-16oz).  I wish the flavor lasted throughout the sip, but it just doesn’t.  It goes away within a few seconds.  But then you take another sip and you forget about the watery-ness for a second or two.  And it’s all good again.

I do get a bit of protein-ness on my lips with this one that I didn’t notice with the Lemonade — but it’s not horrible at all.  I’ve had horrible — this isn’t that.

I REALLY like this flavor.  It mixes smoothly without any crap left at the bottom of the cup, no clumps in the cup.  Really, if a bit of foam is the only thing that is a problem, then I’d say they’ve made a good product.  And look at those stats?  Wowsa.
