Select Protein (27 Servings)
- 02-07-2014, 09:49 AM
PES has been bringing us nothing but quality, effective products since the beginning, Select Protein is no different.
Lots of research done in the formulation of this, take the time to read their write-ups and you will come to appreciate it. Every part if this profile was selected to optimize your results and protein synthesis, all backed by studies. A variety of leucine forms will jumpstart protein synthesis and the blend with casein will prolong it to keep you anabolic. Very low carb and fat content means these gains will be lean. Added enzymes will aid in digestion, I have experienced no bloat using this product.
All it takes is a shaker cup and the right amount if water, I don't even need or yse a blender ball to mix. It won't stir in but shake it up and you're golden; no clumping.
Even compared to mass gainer, sugar and cream filled powders Select stands its ground. Hands down the best overall line of powders for taste, especially for a lean blend. Available in milk chocolate, cookies and cream, and Snickerdoodle. I have used these powders in everything from ice cream to just water to baking cakes/cookies/muffins/brownies. It has not once disappointed me and lets me enjoy protein rich desserts with low caloric value.

Profile: 10/10 No Fillers, 1.5g fat, less than 1g sugar, 24g of protein. I am glad to see companies like PES making protein powders like this. I can't imagine all the money I threw out in the past on fillers.
Mixabilty: 10/10 Mixes easy not much more can be said. From the pictures I have seen in other threads, it appears it mixes well to cook with also.
Taste: CnC 10/10 This is easily my favorite CnC protein ever. I hear a lot about Beverly, but have never tried it so I can't compare. It tastes good in water, which is a good indicator if a flavor is legit. However, it tastes amazing mixed with Almond Breeze unsweetened Vanilla. I have blown through a few tubs this way.
Snickerdoodle 9/10 I know most people would disagree and say Snickerdoodle is better than Cookies and Cream, but remember taste has a lot to do with personal preferences. I burned myself out on cinnamon after going through a boatload of Cinnamon Roll XF. I will say that the Select is pretty close to the actual flavor of a snickedoodle, as far as I remember. It's not a cookie that I come across often. The baking possibilities with Snickerdoodle is endless, there is about 20 recipes I want to try.
Overall: 10/10 This is a new staple for me, great job PES!

taste: 10 out of 10
It's amazing how much it taste just like a snickerdoodle cookie. No bad aftertaste. Great with water.
Bloat: 10 out of 10
Not sure what it is but as I get older I seem to have more issues with bloat. Even with proteins I've never had issues with in the past it seems to happen often now. With select I have zero bloat.
Ease of mixing: 10 out of 10
I don't use mixer balls and it still easily mixes. No issues.
Location of scoop when first opened: 1 out of 10
Purchased 2 and both caused me much mental pain and suffering as I had to dig to the bottom to find the scoop. Very disappointed PES
Overall 9.5 as I subtracted .5 for the therapy I had to pay for because of the whole scoop thing.
I definitely have a new staple in my supp cabinet.
PES please look at putting in a larger container. I'll buy it!

Outstanding Macros, Very easy Mixability, and tastes fantastic. All 3 flavors are awesome. Ended up getting them for a great price and they come in smaller tubs than normal whey proteins which make it very easy for storage. I cannot think of a bad thing to say about these products. I would highly suggest it.

The flavor I am reviewing is Snickerdoodle.
After reviewing the writeup and profile, It appears to be a top-shelf protein. Leucine peptides? I don't think I need to say anything more.
Upon opening the tub, the smell is reminiscent of cinnamon and snickerdoodle cookies.
I mixed two scoops snickerdoodle (is this overkill with the peptides?) with about 15-18oz water. I let it sit during my first 5-10 minutes of my car ride home from the gym as I like to drink more water at this time.
By that time, it is mixed very well. There is no clumping at all, as well as nothing left along the sides of my shaker.
It mixes to a very smooth, creamy consistency.
It tastes like snickerdoodle cookies, or at least the batter. PES nailed it here. I love this flavor, it is easily my favorite..
The only thing close to this flavor is one scoop SD and one scoop CnC.
It is very smooth and leaves my stomach feeling great.
I'd give this protein a 5/5
Easily my new favorite.

Profile: 10/10 No Fillers, 1.5g fat, less than 1g sugar, 24g of protein. This is one of, if not, the cleanest profile in a protein.
Mixabilty: 9/10 Mixes quite easy with a spoon but I'm sure it mixes much more easily in a shaker cup. This is why I'm giving it a 9. However, in a cup, if you stir it for a couple of minutes, then you're good to go.
Taste: Snickerdoodle 10/10 This is easily one of my tops flavored proteins bar none. Snickerdoodle flavor is not overly sweet, but just right. As of right now, you can't compare this flavor with another protein because there are no other flavors like this but if it was the case, then the competition is gonna have a tough fight on their hands. Only had this flavor in 2% milk and it's to die for. It also mixes well with other flavors. Have to try it in water and in my oatmeal too and report back.
I'm also sure that this flavor would be awesome to bake with too. It's definitely endless with what you can do with this flavor.
Overall: 10/10 Great job as always from the PES crew. Everything they make, turns to gold. Keep up the good job guys.

This protein is great. Awesome macros, solid profile, and the best taste. I tried all 3 and boy you can not go wrong. Obvious choice is snicker doodle since I never seen that flavor before. If you haven't tried it you need too! 11/10 for sure.

First impression is amazing. Mixes extremely well, especially for a blend. No clumping or sticking to the sides/bottom of the shaker.The flavor was incredible as well. I love cinnamon and use it just about any sweet dish and even on eggs and chicken sometimes so this was right up my alley. The flavor was plenty strong as I was able to add 30oz to a scoop and enjoy it still. Has a good consistency even with thy much water an isn't just watered down and bland. Just enough sweet to satisfy a craving for cookies and the cinnamon is just a bonus for me. I thoroughly enjoyed my first taste and can't wait to try some baking and maybe some cottage cheese "ice cream".

This stuff was hyped pretty heavily, so I had to give a try. They were out of the insanely popular Snickerdoodle, so I tried Cookies and Cream.
Cookies and Cream tastes like a luscious diner-style milkshake, but without lard and barrels of sugar.
It foams up a little bit, but the powder is so fine, you won't get any chunks or anything, if that bothers you.
This is a great-tasting protein blend with no unnecessary fillers. It works great post workout and between meals.

I've tried two different flavors of this protein, milk chocolate and cookies and cream. Both flavors are delicious and represent some of the best in the category of any I've tried. The profile is about as good as it could possibly get. The only possible flaw I could find is the fact that they haven't made it in bigger tubs yet!
This is a very hyped protein, but it lives up to it and then some. You can't make a better protein.

I'm a fan. Seriously one of the best I've tried with the best profile. Any ideas if there are sales running on it?

Cant beat the taste / make up of the protein.
Expensive for UK buyers but worth it

I bought the cookies and cream flavor and my gf bought the chocolate. Havent tried snickerdoodle yet. All i can say is wow. Probably one of the few proteins that would keep me coming back for more based on the ingredient profile alone... but then that amazing flavor too! This stuff is great, mixes easily with water or milk and is like a dessert for me.
