True Nutrition Whey Flavor #8 – Coconut
I bought the TrueNutrition.com 38 Flavor sample pack.
I figured this would be white powder and stay white when mixed… but in the back of my head somewhere I secretly wondered if it was going to turn blue. Nope. White.
I was surprised by this flavor. When I pulled it out of the box, I had a “awww” reaction. I didn’t want it. I do like coconut, but all too often artificial coconut flavor is nasty to me. I was surprised by the strawberry coconut and especially the chocolate coconut in that they weren’t too bad. And this continued that trend. I was pleased at how good it did taste. It was more of a “dried/roasted” type of flavor than the sugary candy sweet you can get from a lot of coconut flavorings. I dug that. And that’s probably why, because I find while I like sugary artificial stuff to an extent, I can’t have it for long. It’s probably “candy” association in my head. We all know too much candy is bad for you, and while I love candy (have a bag of Swedish Fish and a bag of Jolly Ranchers at my office desk), I can only have it in moderation else my body revolts at the sugar overdose and lack of functional nutrition. So more “natural” or perhaps better to say “savory” flavors my body registers more as “good”. Thus this coconut registered a bit nicer for me since it didn’t taste like I was eating a Mounds bar. Tasted more like coconut bits you’d find in a trail mix, if you will.
I probably will still not have this as a regular thing, only because I can only take coconut in moderate amounts. But still, I found this was a nice and welcome flavor.
