True Nutrition Whey Flavor #4 – Wild Berry Blast
I bought the TrueNutrition.com 38 Flavor sample pack.
Wild Berry Blast.
We’ve started a little game. Before I mix up the next flavor, guess what color it will turn. For you see, in the little baggie it’s that off-white color of whey. But once liquid is added, so far they’ve all been turning colors. The 3 strawberry flavors I’ve already tried have all turned pink… as you’d guess from years of consuming artificially colored foods.
So now… Wild Berry Blast. We guessed blue or purple. And sure enough, that’s what it was. It was a light blue (greenish) sort of color.
The flavor? We thought about Crunch Berries cereal. Daughter has taken to taking sips and tasting along with me. We both thought the same thing.
This is probably a flavor that I could enjoy for a little while, but it would get old. Artificial-type flavors don’t always last with me. I can do them as one-offs, but trying to down a 10# bag of such flavors would be difficult. But again, that’s me. YMMV.
I also wondered what these were sweetened with. True Nutrition offers a lot of sweetening options, and I’m guessing some sort of artificial sweetener was used because 1. there’s aftertaste, 2. I’m wondering if the headache I’m getting is because this is the 3rd packet I’ve consumed today (spread over the course of the day). I understand why they do this, because carbs are the most evil to most whey consumers. But I’m thinking, depending what flavor I end up getting in bulk, about getting it unsweetened. First, if adding it to milk sweetens it enough, that’s fine. If I want something more, adding a little sugar is fine in my book. I’d rather have a pinch of sugar than HFCS or artificial sweeteners or other such crap.
So far, I still think the strawberries and cream is winning.
