Select Protein (27 Servings)
- 02-07-2014, 11:49 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!
Less than 1g Sugar
Less than 2g fat
No GI discomfort

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.
- 02-20-2014, 09:07 AM
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 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.

Snicker doodle oats/muffins/pancakes/waffles/cakes/loaves/shakes... nuff said
i even eat straight powder it's that good

I've FINALLY had the chance to taste Select. I'm not a huge protein fan because cost here is crazy but I figured i'd invest a little just to give it a try. It was good. Very good.
Mixes great in blender.
Tastes Great over cereal, in shakes or mixed in with some yogurt/ ice cream.
Profile is good
Good job PES

So far, I have just had the Snickerdoodle flavor. It is very similar to a Snickerdoodle cookie. It can be used in many ways and is my go to flavor for oatmeal, pancakes, and cookies. Also, it has a thicker texture, which I enjoy. A little more water is be needed. It also mixes perfectly.

Profile: 10/10 No Fillers, 1.5g fat, less than 1g sugar, 24g of protein. I'm really pleased with this proteins, they are great, not containing any fillers or anything but pure proteins, i really like the mix and the way the made this, the use of casein/isolate/concentrate its perfect, you can have it for bewakfast/preWO and postWO and even for pre sleep!
Mixabilty: 10/10 It mixes perfectly, i like to mix it with a little of water and it is not leaving any dense part, it is perfectly smooth and creamy!
Taste: i cannot say anything apart YUMMYLICIOUS!!!!!! especially snicker doodle taste, cookies&cream are great too! i found myself finishing a 900g jar in one week!!! it's like a dessert!
Overall: 10/10 PES is continuing releasing amazing product, please keep doing it guys!

I wanted to throw this in here I copy/pasted my review from BB.com
Tub smells good when opening, noticed the protein is moderately clumpy which I am guessing is due to the high amount of MPI.
Profile: 10/10 good blend, more important if your mixing with water or almond milk. Quality blend with good ratio of whey and casein. Minimal fat and carbs which is a huge plus.
Taste: 9.5/10 really good, very sweet. Easily drinkable with almond milk or water. IMO the second best tasting protein I have ever had. Just shy of beating beverly internationals vanilla and cookies and cream.
Mixability 10/10 I use a ninja blender so really not expecting any issues
Value:7/10 pretty good, 55 servings for 50ish dollars
Summary: Excellent protein source and great tasting. Def going to be using this in the future

We all already know that Select Protein is top notch, mixes rather easily and tastes great. So, they decided to add to their flavor line-up and came out with Blondie. This stuff tastes AWESOME!!! It's like a little bit of heaven in a shaker cup! PES really hit a home run with this flavor!
- 03-12-2015, 11:28 PM
I've never said a protein shake ever tasted good before, usually I say X brand is the least offensive. I can honestly say PES Select Protein Snickerdoodle tastes good! Cookies and Cream was so-so, I wouldn't say it's "good". Gets super frothy, kinda kills the mixability, the Snickerdoodle doesn't do that. If the nutrition facts are accurate then you can't beat this stuff.

Before trying snickerdoodle select i had a strange liking to fruit flavored proteins. I would mix with bcaas or other flavoring to make them taste better. I have read so many reviews about select that i figured i would try it. I loved the ingredient profile. Whey and casein, both excellent grades, a clean profile with only 1 gram of carbs per serve. The blend makes it versitile for almost any time of day and even for cooking. Snickerdoodle cookies are my favorite, so that was a no brainer.
So my 55 tub arrives. I get home post gym and crack it open. As i rip the seal off some spills on the counter. I tasted the powder with my finger and i was hooked. I cant lie, i licked the counter lol. I proceeded to make two shakes in water that night, one the next morning and even made a pancake with it. Within 12 hours i probably used 5-6 servings. On my birthday i recently subbed out extra cake and cookies for a shake and it kept me satiated and cut my cravings. I mix in a regular shaker with water and in a few shakes its perfect consistency, almost mixes with a isolate texture, no clumps, tastes phenominal. I am a pes fan for life!!!-
Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup has officially taken the number 1 spot for my favorite protein. If anything it is in a close tie with snicker doodle. The taste, texture and mix ability are all top notch. In water CPBC is amazing; I personally love throwing in some ice cubes and a scoop of peanut butter in a blender. Also love it in oatmeal. I have finished a tube and a half in about 13 days. This stuff is too good.

I picked up this protein a few times since it was released. Initially I bought into the hype with purchasing it to give it a shot, but that was quickly squashed when I opened the tubs. I got all three flavors and they all taste great (chocolate was actually my least favorite)
The profile is great, the taste is great and the protein mixed very well. Overall I could not find a thing wrong with it. I would absolutely recommend this to people and from the plethora of other reviews, im not alone.

Select has never failed to come out with the best tasting protein powder ever made. The taste and texture is so good it makes all other protein powders seem like they are stuck in the stone age. The snickerdoodle has just the right amount of sweetness with a hint of spice in it. Mix-ability is outstanding and can be easily mixed with just a spoon...no shaker cup necessary. My wife usually gags at the sight and smell of previous proteins but she actually enjoys the Select protein. As a matter of fact a couple scoops of Select is now the goto ingredient in pancakes in our house! I find myself leaving calories in the day just to enjoy a shake.

Profile: 10/10 No Fillers not amino spiked, blend of proteins for better muscle building.
Mixabilty: 10/10 Mixes easy, I have mixed it once yesterday in a bowl with a spoon and 50ml of water to make protein sludge.
Snickerdoodle 10/10, Just from opening the tub i new by the strong cinnamon smell this was going to be a great tasting product, with the low water and mixed in a bowl i found this to have a very strong almost alcoholic taste, maybe i will have to use more water next time but regardless this kills my sweet tooth.
This is a great product, I cannot wait to try out the other flavors.
How does the Chocolate and Cookies N Cream version taste compared to Snickerdoodle?
MOD EDIT: This is strictly a review section. Please take questions, comments, promo's, etc...to the proper forums. thank you.

PES just keeps on surprising me!from now on most of my supllements will be PES.i have Snickerdoodle and the taste is amazing Wow the best tasting protien I've tasted in my life!!what I like about it is the thickness of the shake.i sometimes use it as a meal replacement and boy oh boy it works real good..I could be Hungry I take this stuff and I'm not hungry for a while.you guys better get this
- 05-12-2015, 03:42 PM
Great profile, perfect blend of whey & casein. Low carb & low fat
Mixes pretty easily in a shaker cup, but way better with some ice in a blender
Taste is a very subjective thing. I thought the Chocolate Peanut Butter
combo was pulled off rather well and probably the best tasting PB
protein I've ever had.
You get 55 servings for about $55 with the larger tub. Its about a $1 a
serving which isnt bad considering the quality and taste.
Will be buying in again soon..!!!
- 05-12-2015, 03:50 PM
I failed to notice it does contain sucralose... Otherwise it's a great product. I buy this more than ON Gold now, however may consider switching to something else due to the sucralose. I still stand by my word, good tasting and mixing for a whey.

This review is for the Peanut Butter Cup flavor: I've already submitted a review, so I need to do it this way.
Profile - Perfect blend. High quality protein, low carb and fat. 5/5
Mixability - One needs a little more liquid than usual when making a shake, but nothing crazy. It mixes nice and thick which I love. When mixing it in oatmeal or recipes, it is perfect. 5/5
Taste - If you have read my past posts about this flavor, I was nervous about there being too much of a chocolate to peanut butter flavor. I am not a chocolate fan, but love peanut butter. I can honestly say that this is by far the best tasting protein powder I have ever had and I will make it my staple. The PB flavor is a lot more pronounced than the chocolate! The chocolate is minimal. The taste overall reminds me of a Reese's Easter Egg or even a generic chocolate and pb Easter egg. I compare it to this because with those, the PB stands out way more than the chocolate and that was what came to mind as soon as I tasted it. My only regret is that I wish I ordered 6 instead of 3 during the insider. 5/5Performax Labs Product Specialist

So what is it?
Well this protein powder is a mixture of casein and whey protein concentrate with some added leucine peptides. So letís go ahead and dive right into the breakdown.
The Break Down:
So this is per scoop, Iím looking at the snickerdoodle which tastes awesome. So for one scoop thereís 110 calories, 1.5 g of fat, 210mg sodium, less than 1g of the carbs and 24g of protein.So thatís a great ratio there -hardly any fat, hardly any carbs and 24g of high quality protein.Theyíre also claiming no amino spike PES got it right because casein and whey protein mixture is superior than whey alone so I like that.
We also have over 5g of BCAA thatís coming from leucine peptides. Leucine being the almighty branch chain amino acid when it comes to muscle protein synthesis. Kudos to PES for throwing that in there, I really like that too. So overall breakdown I mean I donít know how you can really one up them on this so 9 out of 10.
Right off the bat nothing on the sides too much so 8.5 out of 10 for mixability.
Going right into the taste, this is again for snickerdoodle so itís letís give that a shot. It reminds me of a cinnamon cookie really good, 9 out of 10 for taste.
I just want to add something that I forgot to mention in the breakdown.
Theyíre using a whey protein concentrate that is 80% of whey protein ultra purity. Alot of them can vary from 35% to 80% and they chose to use the best of best -their dominant WPCĖ80. So again good job PES Nutrition!
