    There was a small delay in some of the packaging; let me see if the samples have gone out yet. By the way, I believe they are chocolate PB. They will be going out - just taking a bit longer than I had expected.

    The ETA of arrival from our manufacturer has been moved back to Feb. 15th (quite a while longer than we were originally slated for). Sorry about this guys - not too pleased w/ the ship date being moved back like this.

    I've actually gotten a pretty good number of PMs asking where the packet is . I was kind of surprised at how impatient some of them were.

    Excellent! It looks like the first wave of packets are just arriving now. There will be more filtering out in the next few days, as everything works through the mail system. I've been getting word from other members that they have been receiving them - so it should be pretty quick now .

    Ok i just tried out my pack. Choco PB. Doesn't quite taste like Choc PB, but close. I wouldn't call it tasty but easily drinkable. I think I got too used to those fruitty flavors from AEN

    It mixes very well!

    I'll be looking out for your products when I buy protein again

    Very cool. With the ingredients that are actually in there, getting the mixability is actually not too easily. You may have also noticed that it is a bit gritty. That is largely due to the flax and oatmeal content (and some contribution from the M. casein). The creamer smooths it out surpringly well - compared to what it could be, much of the grittiness is flat out gone.

    As for the taste, I actually kind of agree. It's not unpleasant at all (well, to me) but I don't know if I'd describe it as chocolate PB if I wasn't told. If you like more fruity flavors, you'd probably like the wildberry yogurt (wildberry + chocolate protein = oh my god). Characteristically, the flavor popularity has actually gone (greatest to least): Cinnamon Oatmeal, Wildberry Yogurt, Vanilla Caramel (my favorite), and then Chocolate PB. That's more based on my observations over the last year and a bit from all the questions/comments than hard fact though. Look at it this way - chances are you're just going to keep going up with the other flavors .

    So I tried my sample tonite (choc/peanutbutter) I'd give it an 8/10 overall. I mixed mine with fat free milk and while most of it did dissolve pretty well, there were still several chunks after a rigorous shaking. The taste was pretty decent for a protein mix, there was a definite chocolate/peanutbutter taste and its fairly similar to the real stuff. The texture was pretty grainy, but lets face it, its a protein mix. Anyways, thanks for the sample, and good work guys - definitely a future supplement for my supp cabinet.

    I tried my Sample yesterday. The mixability is great. The taste is ok, but not great. Chocolate PB flavor. I mixed it with milk. It seems there is something elese in the product over powering the pb flavor, maybe one of the oils in there. Great ingredient list but the flavor must be improved.

    Received mine yesterday and today took it post workout with a little milk and some crushed ice. Mixed in the blender, so there were no issues there. Taste wasn't overpowering, which I like. Solid, thanks for the sample!

    I tried my sample today. I did cheat however.

    I use a packet of the chocolate peanut butter and mixed it with a scoop of banana flavored syntha 6 from my store. Incredible! Tomorrow I'll try the other packet by itself.

    10, f*ckin 10!!!

    Got my sample, choco-peanut. Mixed great, consistancy was thick-ish. Taste initially took me aback, as it's not sweet, but about halfway through I started to really enjoy the natural non-sweet flavor. It tastes like it's made of food, not engineered in a lab.

    I like it!

    One thing I forgot to mention is the consistancy when mixed with 16 oz of milk is great. A lot of protein has a watery consistancy and could not be described as a "shake", more of a protein drink. This stuff has an excellent "shake" like consistancy.

    i just tried my chocolate PB. the mixability wasnt very good to say the least. it was really clumpy towards the top. the flavor was bland. you could distinguish the chocolate flavor, peanut butter seemed somewhat masked, but it was overall bland.

    Hurleyboy05, the gritty texture is smoothed out a lot actually - but much of what you're getting is from the oatmeal, flax, and even to an extent the micellear casein. When you use ingredients like these, some gritty texture is an inevitability.

    T-Bone, you may want to look into one of the other flavors in the meantime. A few people have not liked the chocolate PB flavor so far, but I'm not sure what would be overpowering the PB. The taste seems to vary depending on the mixing medium - in water it is more peanut butter, in milk more chocolate.

    edvanp, glad to hear you liked it

    Necroticism, what were you using to mix? I've been consuming this stuff for 2 years now... I really don't have much success with spoon/glass, but it's fine with a shaker/blender (as it seems to be for most so far). The taste - well, flavoring is tricky. Use too little and people don't like the flavor, use too much and people like the flavor but don't want the price . It's a decent flavoring for the ingredient listing - but if you don't like it, cinnamon oatmeal or wildberry yogurt is probably more up your alley.

    Sorry guys, I haven't had much time to be around this weekend. I've got a few projects that are keeping me busy all day.

    hmm yeah i must have mixed in too much water, i tasted a little chocolate only and non if any of the PB. but doesnt matter as much as the contents which looks pretty good.

    maybe i can have another and try it with milk. hahahha

    im going to give some of the others a shot. ill admit i did use spoon and cup, which doesnt work well for most proteins, im used to regular eas chocolate though, which mixes quite easily in this. ill pick some of this up in the future trying some other flavors out to see how i like those though. the bland taste may be because i added extra water because of the clumping.

    Just got mine and tried it.
    Very tasty, Had to mix,let sit, stir, let sit, stir, Then it was all mixed. took about five minutes. Probably would have been easier in a blender bottle. I really liked it and would purchase it.
    I got the chocolate peanut butter. Not so much peanut butter but still yummy. I give it two thumbs up.
