    Vanilla Ice Cream Flavor


    What flavor did you use today?


    Vanilla Ice Cream Flavor


    How was it Prepared?


    Mixed in 7 oz. water using a shaker bottle.


    On a scale of 1 – 10, How would you rate the initial taste?


    This is not the in-your-face vanilla flavor that I expected. I really like it, it's like a light vanilla with a hint of cheesecake. Rating: 10


    On a scale of 1 – 10, How would you rate the after taste?


    None to speak of! Rating: 10


    On a scale of 1 – 10, How would you rate the texture?


    Just like the first shake I made with Milk Chocolate Flavor, the shake was very think, yet even throughout with no clumps. Rating: 10


    On a scale of 1 – 10, How would you rate the smell?


    It smelled sort of like instant pudding mix. Who doesn't like pudding? Rating: 10


    On a scale of 1 – 10, How would you rate the mixability?


    The first time that I shook up a sample I over shook it and created a good bit of foam. This time knowing how well this protein mixes, I just gave it a few quick shakes and poured it into the glass, no foam. It looks like that problem was user error! Rating: 10


    Did you experience any recovery changes?


    N/A. I did not consume this post-workout.


    Would you be interested in using this product in the future?


    As soon as I can get my hands on it, both flavors!




    Pic after mixing. With just a few shakes it was perfectly mixed and there was no foam, just some bubbles around the side.





    After drinking. It reminds me of a stained glass window. No chunks left!







    And then there was one... Only one sample remains, Milk Chocolate Flavor. The plan? Unsweetened vanilla almond milk!

    Milk Chocolate Flavor: Third and Final Trial


    What flavor did you use today?


    Milk Chocolate Flavor


    How was it Prepared?


    Mixed in ~8.5 oz. unsweetened vanilla almond milk using a shaker bottle.


    On a scale of 1 – 10, How would you rate the initial taste?


    Ok, wow. Life. Changing. Flavor and Texture. Super think, which is why I used 8.5 oz. rather than 7 oz like I did with water. I am highly impressed, and I highly recommend that all of you other beta testers give this a shot. Rating: 10, is 11 allowed?


    On a scale of 1 – 10, How would you rate the after taste?


    None! Rating: 10


    On a scale of 1 – 10, How would you rate the texture?


    Very thick, like a half melted chocolate milkshake. Rating: 10


    On a scale of 1 – 10, How would you rate the smell?


    Just as good as before, smells like boxed chocolate cake or muffin mix. Rating: 10


    On a scale of 1 – 10, How would you rate the mixability?


    In almond milk I had to shake it up a little more than I did with water, but the good news is that with almond milk less foam forms, so it all works out. Once it was thoroughly shaken it was completely mixed. Rating: 10


    Did you experience any recovery changes?


    N/A. I did not consume this post-workout.


    Would you be interested in using this product in the future?


    Yes. All of them. All of the protein tubs...belong to me. I don't plan on sharing.


    Pics!


    Almond milk, 30 cal/8 oz., vanilla flavor, a few grams of good fat/serving. Can't beat it.





    This is right after mixing and pouring. Not much for foam or bubbles. In the first pic you can tell how thick it is by noticing how it clings to the side of the glass on the edges.








    After drinking, no chunks to be seen.

    What flavor did you use today?

    Milk Chocolate (in 6oz of unsweetened vanilla almond milk)


    On a scale of 1 - 10, How would you rate the initial taste?

    10: I loved it in water, but this was ridiculous. Easily one of the best tasting protein shakes that I've had of any flavor (and I'm not a big chocolate fan).


    On a scale of 1 - 10, How would you rate the after taste?

    10: I didn't notice one.


    On a scale of 1 - 10, How would you rate the texture?

    10: Amazing. I couldn't have been happier with the texture. I like a thicker shake and that's exactly what I got... thick, creamy, and delicious.


    On a scale of 1 - 10, How would you rate the smell?

    9: It smelled great when opening the sample.


    On a scale of 1 - 10, How would you rate the mixability?

    10: Mixed very well. Zero issues/clumps.


    Did you experience any recovery changes?

    Too early to judge.


    Would you be interested in using this product in the future?

    Without question.


    I honestly couldn't believe how good Milk Chocolate was in almond milk. It was a struggle to not rip open my final packet and have more immediately.

    Milk Chocolate

    How was it Prepared?

    Mixed in a bowl, adding amount of water. The amount of water was just enough to make it into a pudding-like consistency. I eat my normal protein powder like this every day. I rarely drink them as a shake anymore.

    On a scale of 1 – 10, How would you rate the initial taste?

    As with the shake this had a very distinct milk chocolate flavor, but more intense. Very good and very true to it's name. Rating: 10

    On a scale of 1 – 10, How would you rate the after taste?

    With the flavor being more concentrated I did notice a slight aftertaste of artificial sweeteners. That doesn't bother me at all because that's what I'm used to. A protein powder sweetened with cane sugar would probably just taste weird to me. While it didn't bother me, I have known plenty of people to be the opposite. I don't know, I can't relate. All I can say is that a flavor other than milk chocolate does seem to linger, but it is not unpleasant. Rating: In terms of what I think other people would have to say - 8. If all that mattered were my own preferences - 9.

    On a scale of 1 – 10, How would you rate the texture?

    As expected, I needed to add significantly more water to the bowl of powder make the pudding than I use with plain, thin mixing, whey protein. The texture as expected was very thick and creamy. Good stuff, those qualities make for some good protein sludge. Rating: 10

    On a scale of 1 – 10, How would you rate the smell?

    Restatement what I wrote about the powder in trial 1: "The smell of the powder reminded me of the milk chocolate boxed cake mix that I ALWAYS used to beg for on my birthday as a child." Moving on from that the smell of the sludge was similar to that of the powder. Imagine the smell of a milk chocolate cake mix right before it goes into the oven. Rating: 10

    On a scale of 1 – 10, How would you rate the mixability?

    The consistency was even; I did not notice any chunks. I only mixed it until all of the powder was wet, and then for a couple of stirs beyond that. During the process, chunks did not form and once the water was mixed in it was ready to go. Rating: 10

    Did you experience any recovery changes?

    N/A. I did not consume this post-workout.

    Would you be interested in using this product in the future?

    Yes indeed!

    Picture: Sludge after a good bit of it was eliminated. Ok, maybe most of it. What...I was hungry and did not want to wait to take a picture before digging in!



    hmm... I usually make "protein sludge" with protein powder and peanut butter. I never thought of trying to make it with just water. I am currently on a PSMF diet and you just opened up a whole new world for me! Thanks classic!!!

    • What flavor did you use? Chocolate/Vanilla - 2 packets in PWO shake for 2 workouts
    • On a scale of 1 – 10, How would you rate the initial taste? 10
    • On a scale of 1 – 10, How would you rate the after taste? 10
    • On a scale of 1 – 10, How would you rate the texture? 9
    • On a scale of 1 – 10, How would you rate the smell? 10
    • On a scale of 1 – 10, How would you rate the mixability? 9
    • Did you experience any recovery changes? Hard to tell with only 2 shakes, but my recovery was very good with roughly 50g of your protein vs 75-80g of ON
    • Would you be interested in using this product in the future? Definitely
    • Please add other comments that you have. This product tastes great! The chocolate is awesome with not much "protein-ey" taste, despite the addition of some casein (which I LOVE!). You have to give it a few extra shakes for maximum mixability, but that's well worth it for the taste and performance value of everything added in to this stuff. I don't know the quantities yet of the different casein blends, MCT's, etc...but it's a great mix of stuff in there. Considerably less, to no after taste or after effects of drinking this protein. The ON stuff I use usually has me "feeling" like I just drank a shake, this stuff felt like it went right to work. No bloat, no after taste, felt very good after my training sessions with this product. I would buy this protein 100x over buying anything by ON again. Great job USP labs and thanks for the opportunity to try it out!

    Vanilla Ice Cream (in 6oz of water)


    On a scale of 1 – 10, How would you rate the initial taste?

    10: Awesome job with this. It was smooth, creamy, and reminded me of frosting with a hint of cake batter…I love frosting.

    10: None detected


    On a scale of 1 – 10, How would you rate the texture?

    10: Just like the Milk Chocolate, it was great. It had the thickness that I prefer and went down very smooth.

    10: I thought of frosting as soon as I tore open the packet.


    On a scale of 1 – 10, How would you rate the mixability?

    10: Mixed very well. Zero issues/clumps.


    Did you experience any recovery changes?

    I always try to have some vanilla protein on hand and this will be my new go to product. It had a unique vanilla taste, that I look forward to using in shakes and different recipes. After trying both flavors, tomorrow’s IC release can’t come soon enough.

    Finished my 4 servings! I'm sorry USPLabs I didnt really follow the instructions on the packets. I'm a big smoothie guy for my PWO drinks. For the chocolate I used: 1 packet chocolate advanced leaning protein, 1-2cups milk, 1 banana, 2-3TBS peanut butter, unflavored creatine mono, 3 cubes ice all blended up = YUM.
    Smell 10/10
    Taste 9/10 (I'm not the biggest artificial sweetener fan and so for my tastebuds it was a bit much. With that said though, I will agree with the other reviews it is the best artificially sweetened chocolate I have tasted.)
    Mix-ability 10/10
    Texture 10/10
    After Taste 10/10
    Onto the Vanilla Ice Creme!
    This smoothie I made with; 1 packet vanilla ice creme advanced leaning protein, 5 Strawberries, 1 Banana, 1-2 cups milk, creatine & Ice.
    Initial Taste: 11/10 blew my mind it was so good.
    After Taste 7/10 The after taste was a little "chalky" is the best way to describe it.
    Smell 10/10
    Mix-ability 10/10
    Texture 10/10

    Overall thoughts: Taste wise this is a solid protein from my initial reactions! I would like to use it more to see what kind of physical results I would achieve but for now I was happy with these samples! Very solid. Thanks USPLabs I hope you aren't too upset with me for not following the instructions

    Milk Chocolate (in 6oz of unsweetened vanilla almond milk..again)


    On a scale of 1 – 10, How would you rate the initial taste?

    10: Outstanding! I still can’t believe how much I enjoy this in almond milk. The creamy cocoa taste is something that I’ll be craving until my first tub arrives.


    On a scale of 1 – 10, How would you rate the after taste?

    10: I didn’t notice one.


    On a scale of 1 – 10, How would you rate the texture?

    10: Perfect. Thick, creamy, and smooth.


    On a scale of 1 – 10, How would you rate the smell?

    9: It smelled great when opening the sample.


    On a scale of 1 – 10, How would you rate the mixability?

    Did you experience any recovery changes?

    Nothing major to report at this time, although DOMS hasn't been an issue.


    Would you be interested in using this product in the future?

    I’m staring at my email in anticipation of the IC link! I highly recommend not sleeping on this deal!

    Pretty much. It's a good thing that was my last packet or all control may have been lost!

    I have done that as well plenty of times. I don't even drink shakes, haven't for a couple of years now. I eat them instead. I don't know, I just prefer it that way. People are always confused in the locker room when I pull out the protein and make it into pudding.

    you ever try to mix it in with cool whip? or some greek yogurt?

    I expected more reviews on here for 5 tubs up for grabs! Shocked this is only 3 pages pretty much of reviews.

    Chocolate > Vanilla IMO. Chocolate tastes like a Devil's Food Brownie!

    Marc also says silk aminos are good in one video than says silk aminos are crap in another video. I don't trust him. He's a sales man since he is part of tiger fitness. He also recommends muscle tech so that alone makes me not trust his video reviews.

    Do you even understand what are Silk Aminos and where they come from? Mostly insects, i remember a few Layne Norton videos regarding his stance on SAA's compared to regular BCAA or EAA's and where they derive from. It may have been from a few psots online from the CEO of Primaforce Mike McCandless, but i am not 100% Sure, but there is not much research behind SAA's, some people change their stances on topics as Layne Norton use to reccomend dextrose back in like 2007 and when he started to research meal frequency and nutritino more he said its a waste once he found out it was mostly used in endurance athletes and in those fasted 24+ hours training to be endurnace athletes for the msot part.

    Layne does not own a store this dude does. This guy will push what ever his deals are from eurpoa sports or who ever is distributor is. I have seen like 5 videos which he support crappy companies etc and we would all agree is cheap but I don't mention names at all.

    Yes real silk aminos are from that Korean company and come from bugs with small dalton size . Most company's using silk also get the cheep stuff not to mention. They also don't compare silk to bcaA. Just placebo and even the placebo did well. All I am saying is I have. Issue with a store owner/Affiliate and there video.

    I as well as you have seen a couple of companies start to sell this product. Touting clinically studies and they reference one research study and based their whole product on this study. One company marketed a special sequence of amino acids in this product. Secondly they compare this product to BCAA's. I think this is a marketing mistake on their part because technically this product is a complete protein. When you think of BCAA's you think of three different amino acids, that's it. silk amino acids is being sold right now is being sold as 5 amino acids if you look at the back on the label you'll see the 5 that I am talking about, when actually it's all the amino acids. . If this company is getting the product OTHER than the company that supplied the silk amino acids in this study, then I am wrong and I don't know what the hell is in this product that is being sold right now. Anyway this product is being sold as an amino acid product which it really isn't. The Korean company that makes this product took the cocoon of a silk worm and extracted the protein from it. Here we have a new protein powder really coming from insects. Not only that but they claim it's better than dairy and egg protein. The point is this guy Is a bad example IMO to use for video reviews.

    People are allowed to change their stance on topics. In fact dare I say I wish this was more common but alas people like you make this rather difficult. One should not be crucified for changing their opinion on a subject. This isnt politics. These opinions are not moral based ones but ones based on science and in light of new evidence or further understanding of a subject it is quite refreshing to see someone back track and change a view, especially in a industry full of dogma.

    And whats wrong with muscletech? Their company has evolved quite nicely in my opinion. Muscletech has made leap and bounds in progress from back in the day.

    If you have a problem with Marc then thats fine but if you wish to challenge someones credibility (who is way more established in an industry that you are) you have to step it up a notch buddy.

    MuscleTech spikes their protein powder to the greater degree of Taurine/Glycine and if they were tested by a 3rd party they would fail. Just sayin'. Shady.


    Agree on the last part, Marc does NOT OWN A COMPANY, hes not the owner of TigerFitness, so no he is not the owner.

    He heavily pushes tiger fitness. So your saying he gets no kick back of products or discounts. Pays retail like us??? If that is the case I will retract my statement but he won't mention any other online body building site like nutra planet my favorite online site.

    First of all you claimed he was the OWNER, which he is not. so there you go "Assuming" things before you know the facts and trying to downgrade Marc and his presence online and what he does with video reviews and being "honest" about products. He wont sit there and tell you the wrong from the right he will tell you if something works or something sucks period. Regardless if he works for a comapny that sells products like Nutra pLanet does, or bb.com does etc... Sure he may get discounts or whatnot, but every single rep that is on here gets the same, guess what OTHER REPS from other COMPANIES rate and review products too (such as myself) who works with Cellucor, and people who take USP products and are reps for Gaspari, ON etc etc.. So thsoe people who are reps for other companies and say that Prime is superior then their test booster, or gives it a good review is blowing smoke? that makes no difference if they pay FULL price or get it at a discount or log the product or win it in a promo and toss up a review.

    Honesty is Honesty period, regardless of your position or what you do, if you dont like something why sugar coat it? A company can never grow or make changes to a product or improve on the past if everyone just says it works great no changes, lets face it in the supplement industry there is not one single product that gets 100% Positive reviews, never has been and never will. A company owner and their rep team can only take the feedback from a beta-test or a product on the market and make changes for the future regardless of who reviews it or what they say.

    Understand the person before you make assumption and start shooting bullets at Marc, He holds more credibility than most on the industry and many people look up to him and his opinion, to say it is the truth is not 100% true, but a lot of people put merit in what he says due to his reputation and what he can do to "Market" a product. The thousands of views his protein review will get will not only AID Usp labs, but also help them in their sales.
