Nectar – Apple Ecstasy

On April 16, 2010, in Protein, Reviews, by Andrea

Ecstasy? Really?

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™!

It’s Friday.  My parents are almost here from a long day of driving and I’m sure there will be a food event coming up.  Given my lack of eating?  I wanted to put something in my stomach before we possibly went somewhere so if nothing worked?  I’d not be starving AND in pain.  So here we are.  Running out of the Nectars.. only have a few left, and this is one of them.

It's. Green.

First impression?

It’s green.  Kermit the Frog green.  Neon green.  Earth Day green.  Pucker green (and damn if I’m not hoping this tastes like Pucker?  Wouldn’t that just rock?  A protein that tastes like alcohol?).  It’s GREEN.  Really really green!  And foamy.  Very foamy.

So I let it sit for 5 minutes…

Still foamy...

So does it taste like Pucker alcohol?

No.  Not even close.

It mixes cleanly, and has a vague apple-y taste similar to a jolly rancher (which is a good thing).  But there’s something else as well.  Some extra taste that I just can’t.. tell you what it is.  It’s an aftertaste that doesn’t hit until after you get the initial apple taste (which is pretty decent).  Mixed in 8oz, if you take some decent gulps, it wouldn’t take too long to get it all down.  But I would NOT want a tub of this stuff because other than adding Pucker?  I can’t see how I could get rid of that aftertaste.

Great stats, though.  Stats via Vitalady.com:

Admittedly, I’m sensitive to tastes.  That’s why Syntrax does these sample packs.  Order one.  You can get the sample pack from SI03 by calling 1-866-333-7403.  Get a sample pack.  It’s a damned good deal.
