Nectar – Strawberry Mousse

Strawberry Mousse

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™!

Next up in my bag o samples is Strawberry Mousse.  I’m going into this hoping for the best because I like a good strawberry drink.  But let’s face it — strawberry is hard to do sometimes.

Mmm.. foam.

Like most of the other Nectar drinks, this foams up pretty heavily.  However, I noticed something that was different –

1 minute later..

The foam dissipates very, very quickly in comparison.  Which is very nice.

This is a very, very thin drink.  Do not think this could be confused with strawberry milk – it’s not.  At all.  It is pink-colored, strawberry flavored water.  That is the consistency that this is.

On first taste, it has a very sweet taste, and a tinge of strawberry.  I mean, enough of a strawberry flavor to know that it IS strawberry, but not enough to be mistaken as heavily flavored strawberry.  Does that make sense?

It leaves a drying protein stickiness on my lips, but nothing that is horrible compared to some I’ve had.

If this were me and I had purchased a large tub, I would use this in conjunction with another protein to get a stronger flavor.  But I’m a flavor whore.  I like thicker drinks and I like more flavor in my drinks.  This is thinner and watery compared to the things I like comparatively.

You can get the sample pack from SI03 by calling 1-866-333-7403.  Get a sample pack.  It’s a damned good deal.

    I ordered my sampler from them. It has lots of flavors that I wanted to try and they were SO nice on the phone. They were ordered April 1 and they told me they would be here for sure by the 8th or 9th. Great price and service with a smile!!
