All The Whey Samples Review
All The Whey
First and foremost, I'd like to thank Marcus from ATW. He sent me a lovely package of samples of ATW proteins. The package itself smells almost too good to eat! The selection is amazing. Imagine your own buffet line of protein powders.
The first one I will be trying will be the Cinnamon Bun. We've all heard the rave about it. I must finally try it myself. I've been waiting for this moment for quite some time now. My first review should be sometime within the next hour or so.
Keep checking back here, as I will be reviewing each protein individually.

Cinnamon Bun Whey Protein Blend
So, it seems that I've been sent a few different samples of Cinnamon Bun Whey Protein Blend and a few of the Isolate. I'll be starting off with the Blend.
I'm adding this to 8 oz. of milk, which, according to the label, provides 31g of protein and 218 calories.
Taste: WOW!!! That's all I can say. Imagine your usual cinnamon bun (cinnamon-ie, covered in icing), but in liquid form. It's that good! This would be perfect for any time, of course, but especially for a quick morning breakfast shake on the go. It goes down smooth and you savor every sip. The taste of this amazing protein definitely lives up to the hype! This is a must.
Mixability: I didn't mix it in a glass or a shaker cup, but in a blender. Either way, I've heard that the powder easily dissolves and mixes into water and milk. It's hard to rate this on a scale of 1-10, so I should stir the next sample in a glass, then the following in a shaker cup. That way, I can give more legitimate reviews on the product's mixability.
Cinnamon Bun Whey Protein Blend definitely gets a 10 out of 10, in my book!

Chocolate Mint Whey Protein Blend
I'm adding this to 8 oz. of milk, which, according to the label, provides 31g of protein and 215 calories.
Taste: If you like green mint chocolate chip ice cream, then you will love this protein. It tastes exactly like it. If you don't like ice cream, then take the chocolate-covered peppermint patties, for example. Imagine the ice cream, or peppermint patties, in milk shake form. There you have it. It doesn't taste too chococlatey, or too minty. It's just right. It also leaves a pleasant minty aftertaste in your mouth.
Mixability: Once again, I got lazy and used the blender. Though, the powder did slightly begin dissolving once I emptied the packet into the milk.
I love green mint chocolate chip ice cream, so I have no choice but to give this protein, a 10 out of 10 rating. The taste reminds me so much of it.
today is payday for me, and I'll be ordering from ATW, based entirely on the hype that is continually generated by the cinnamon bun flavor. I can't wait
If you mix one or two ice cubes in with the whey, this helps break up the clumps if you are using a shaker anyhow. I really like the cinnabun clumps, sometimes i mix it with whipped cottage cheese and it makes like a cookie dough type texture. Almost taste too good, so i usually ending up spending a lot of money on cottage cheese.

So, I just mixed up another shake of the Cinnamon Bun Blend. Just a suggestion: try adding oats to the shake. I wanted to try something slightly different and it's just as delicious!
Banana Whey Protein Blend
I've been getting lazy and keep on using the blender, but from what I've been reading, all of the ATW powders are very easily dissolved and mixed. I'll no longer be rating the mixability.
I usually enjoy mixing my protein with milk instead of water. Each blend tends to have a slight variation in the protein and calorie content. When mixed with 8 oz. of milk, this blend also provides 31g of protein and 218 calories.
This particular banana taste reminds me of the filling in banana creme pie. It tastes very good. I tossed a few ice cubes in this time, along with a small amount of oats. It tastes very good. I'd experiment a little bit if I had any strawberries, blueberries, or oranges, but unfortunately, I don't. I'll have to keep those in mind for when I go grocery shopping.
If you like bananas, then you'll enjoy this. The taste is right-on.
Orange Low Carb/Low Cal Lean & Fit
Protein 27g / Cals 140 / Carbs 7g / Total Fat <0.5g
This is an MRP smoothie mix. Milk and ice would've done the trick. It contains a generous amount of BCAA's, 24 vitamins and minerals, and 5g of fiber.
I ran out of milk, so I just had to mix this with water, even though I didn't really want to. I wish I would've had milk. It tasted too watery and I really didn't like it. This is the first sample that I had a problem with. I'm sure that it would taste so much better being mixed in milk, due to the milk shake-like texture. Orange juice, perhaps? Unfortunately, I ran out of that, too. I could definitely taste the orange, but I wasn't enjoying it. I'll rummage through all my samples and see if I have another one of these.
Dude you are pounding through these whey samples, you must have a narly gas cloud behind you lol.
Keep chowing down bro!

Cinnamon Bun Fat-Free Whey Protein Isolate
Some of the flavors will work in water, but that just doesn't cut it for Cinnamon Bun. There's more of a milk shake-like texture when milk is used. Milk also seems to bring out the flavor even more. Unfortunately, I'm out of milk. I ended up having to use 8 oz. of water. The taste was hardly there, so I added just a small handful of oats and a few sprinkles of ground cinnamon. Wow, did that make the difference! It truly did. I suggest doing this, if you end up having to use water. Once again, the Cinnamon Bun flavor gets a 10 out of 10 rating!
Chocolate Whey Protein Blend
Well, I did find milk in the fridge, but it's Silk brand soy milk. It's vanilla flavored, but almost unflavored. I used 8 oz. of that for this next shake. It came out frothy, thick, and chocolate-y. It's delicious. Just like drinking the Cinnamon Bun shake, it makes you wanna feel guilty. It feels like you're cheating on your diet. But nothing to feel guilty about, of course! I'm also getting even more protein, using soy milk. This shake is just as I expected. The flavor is great. I love it. 10 out of 10!
Strawberry Whey Protein Blend
Wow! Yet another amazing flavor from ATW. If you've ever had a strawberry milkshake, then imagine that, but with the protein and health benefits. I'd toss in some fresh strawberries if I had any, but I'll be sure to keep the idea in mind. I'd even toss in a banana, but I don't have any of those either. This shake came out very thick and goes down very smooth. Once again, I mixed the powder with 8 oz. of Silk brand soy milk. I was expecting the strawberry to taste this good and more. I'm very impressed. 10 out of 10!
Unflavored Fat-Free Whey Protein Isolate
I used this last night. I couldn't imagine the plain taste of this by itself, but I chopped up 2 whole oranges and tossed them in. I used 8 oz. of Silk brand vanilla flavored soy milk and mixed it all in a blender. It ended up tasting like an orange creamsicle, which was pretty good. I'm not a big fan of orange flavors, but it wasn't that bad. If you wanna be creative, then get the unflavored protein isolate and make up your own concoctions.
Strawberry Fat-Free Whey Protein Isolate
I just prepared this. Just as good as the whey protein blend! I prepared it the same way. It was delicious. A very milkshake-like texture and very filling. This just may be my second favorite behind Cinnamon Bun.
Banana Fat-Free Whey Protein Isolate
I prepared this last night and it tasted just as the blend did. Very delicious!
Chocolate Fat-Free Whey Protein Isolate
I'm finally, but sadly, out of the Silk soy milk. I had to use 8 oz. of water, but this actually tastes very good with water. Of course, it doesn't have the milkshake-like texture, but I'm quite impressed about how this tastes. I'd choose this over the chocolate mint any day. Tastes like I should be guilty of something, but the only thing I should be guilty of is not being in the gym right now! I plead the fifth. With that said, this shake is delicious. I'm sipping it right now and I'm sure it'll hold me until I get home from work at midnight. Protein seems to fill me up and give me a lot of energy, especially ATW. I highly recommend this, especially to the chocolate lovers. 10 out of 10!
