Nectar – Cappucino

Starbucks? A girl can dream..

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™!

I’m cleaning.  My parents are coming into town to visit their grandchildren (and, well me I hope ;-) and I’d really like some coffee.  But I’m going to try this instead.

Opening up the package, it smells pretty good.  Kinda like the tinned coffees.  Looks like it, too.

All mixed up

I have to say at this point, it doesn’t look all that appetizing.  But once the foam started to dissipate, it darkened up and looked more like black coffee with just a touch of foam on it.  Much more like coffee.

You know how you take a sip or bite of something and it tastes familiar but you can’t recognize where you have tasted it before?  That’s how this is.  It tastes like something and I can’t tell you what.  And I couldn’t get the husband to try it in order to give me his opinion (chicken).

I can tell you it does not taste like any cappucino I have ever had.  And I have had many cappucinos and lattes in my life.  I am a 4-shot venti skinny vanilla latte on a good day and a 6-shot on a bad day.  So I have a bit of experience with coffee.  This has a spicy-type flavor.. like nutmeg or such in it that just doesn’t taste right to me.

It needs something.  Either some good vanilla protein powder or some Click.

    what a shame, I was hoping it was going to taste great. I would probably add coffee and sf vanilla syrup to it, my answer to any protein powders I’m not a huge fan of.

    I’ve been drinking a cup of this every morning. I like it. I stir it into warm water with a fork and it dissolves right away without having to deal with the foam. It actually has decaf coffee in it and I can taste it. It’s a little too sweet, but all protein drinks are for me. Anyway, I’m happy with it and will be ordering another tub in a week or so!
