Hand soap? Vanilla.
So when I was contacted and asked to review Gotein "protein to go," I was not surprised that my favorite is the vanilla. And it is yummy. I've never really been a protein shake drinker, but I've been thinking about adding it to my diet. So the review (and wait for it.......giveaway) were perfect timing.
I was a little nervous the first time I poured a Gotein packet into my bottle of water. I tried chocolate first thinking maybe it would be like my post-run chocolate milk. I'll be honest; it wasn't. But it was good. It mixed up completely and went down easy. And it was just the right amount of chocolaty, with no aftertaste.
So the next time, I tried the vanilla. Holy yum. And even though I kept forgetting to put some water bottles in the fridge and had to drink it at room temperature, it was still great.
The strawberry is my third favorite, but my girls LOVED it. I'm just not a strawberry drink girl.
The stick packs are made for a 16.9 oz bottle of water. You just drink about 1/3 of the bottle (which I found is important or it will taste too watered down), pour in the Gotein, swirl and shake. Easy peasy.
And for the nutrition nuts out there, here are the stats:
- 6 grams or less carbs per serving
- 110 calories or less per serving
- 1 gram of sugar
- 17 grams of protein
- 24 vitamins and minerals
I can tell you, as soon as my U2 tickets sell on eBay, I'll be buying several boxes of Gotein. At $24.95 for a box of 12 stick packets, it isn't too spendy. I'm just feeling poor because I've spent too much on running clothes lately.And yes, after much debate and deliberation, we decided on a trip to Disney (not sure yet if it will be Land or World) with our girls instead of going to New York to see U2 again. It was a difficult decision since New York and U2 are two of my most favorite things in the world, but they just aren't as high on the list as my two incredible little girls.
So there is a sweet deal on some U2 tickets at Meadowlands Stadium on eBay, and there is a sweet Gotein giveaway right here. Yep, you can try Gotein for yourself. Here's what to do to enter to win your own samples of each Gotein flavor (leave a separate comment for each, please):
