LG's PB Lipotropic Protein
A big Thank You to LG for hooking me up to try this new flavor of protein. First thing I noticed when I opened the container is that the PB protein is very heavy and dense, almost moist for a lack of better terms. I can not imagine getting anywhere near 31 scoops out of this. Maybe 12 if I'm lucky.
Mixability: Like all their protein it mixed perfectly with no issues.
Taste: As much as I would love to say it was the best PB protein I have ever had, I think it fell extremely short in the flavor department. It doesn't taste bad, but if it was not for the smell, I would never guess this to be PB flavor. Maybe a butter toffee? It tastes great, but I would opt for the regular chocolate over this flavor and I'm a huge PB lover. PB seems extremely hard to pull off and the only company really to come close is AI, but they don't make it anymore and if I recall they said the PB flavoring was extremely expensive.
Overall after 2 servings I would say its a great protein since i've gone through about 20lbs of the chocolate and 10lbs of the vanilla, but I would honestly go with either the chocolate or the vanilla over this "pb" flavor. Maybe with some tweaking it may be good...

Just drank another shake and heading to the gym in a bit. The taste is actually pretty good after my 3rd serving, but again the PB taste is just not there. I'm going to see what happens if I add a tablespoon of PB to it. To me its seems a bit overly sweet, but still very tasty. If you like the gemma protein its a definate to give a try.

4th scoop this morning before work in milk and the taste was bit much to take. Overly sweet. I don't know how to describe the taste, but I really loved the Lipo Chocolate, but this PB is just too too sweet. I'm estimating about 10 scoops left in the tub. I'll take pictures of what is left tonight if I have some free time.

And to me it's a bit much. Kinda not right as far as the flavor, maybe a bit strong. Tomorrow I'm going to mix it in even more water to see if that's good for me. I don't like the idea of having to mix it with that much water, but hey whatever. I usually try and always mix with as little water as possible, 8oz or so.

Gotta agree with Joebo here. This tastes nothing like PB to me either.

Well, I got a total of ~21 scoops out of the tub and to be completely honest the last couple servings made me feel almost sick from how sweet and funky tasting this stuff is. I think it seems so odd that some seem to think this tastes like pb and yet mine tastes nothing like it. I would HIGHLY recommend this goes back to the development stage to perfect the flavor and leave out some of the sweetners. I'm interested in trying the chocolate again, and really hope it didn't get overly sweet.
To sum it up:
Taste: I would not recommend this flavor really to anyone. Their chocolate is 200% better tasting in my eyes. I'm not sure if some settling occured, but the bottom half of the container tasted even sweeter and I had to actually choke it down. I give it about a 3 out of 10 on taste
Mixibility: Can't beat this stuff for mixibility. Mixes great, not clumps. 10 out of 10
Overall: I will give the chocolate a shot in hopes that didn't get grossly re-flavored. I'm pretty stocked up on ATW protein right now from the crazy sales, but if NP runs a super sale on this stuff, i'll pick up chocolate to try. I would recommend you steer clear of the PB flavor. Also, I got 10 less servings than listed on the container. Even at a great price, this would have me concerned.
