    So, I usually only drink ON protein. But, I just got an order in the other day of some stuff and it came with a free shaker and two packets of protein to sample. It was Syntrax Nectar Strawberry Kiwi flavored protein. So I decided to give it a try this morning right before my workout. Fast forward two hours, and I'm puking every bit of it back up. Shit was terrible. Not to mention, after I mixed it in the shaker, it was 3/4 foam even after i let it sit for 5 minutes:ugh:. Puking out of the car in the morning sucks.




    Cliffs: Do not buy Syntrax Nectar Strawberry Kiwi flavored protien. Tastes just as bad going down as it does coming back up:sadwavey:

    I got a tub because people said it tastes good. It tastes like plastic. Disgusting.

    Apparently my years of megadosing scalding hot coffee has both killed my taste buds and given me an iron stomach.

    Fuzzy Navel is by far the best flavor they have.

    Cappuccino is also pretty tasty.

    How are WPI flavors compared to Nectar? I had some of the Nectar fruit punch flavor and it was good but that stuff is expensive.

    i rec GNC 100% whey just for its taste and texture; far superior to us with sensitive taste buds.

    if it foams that means it's quality protein
