One of my least favorite flavors from the brand.
Here is my current list of favorites on my last Youtube Video

My Ranking of Select Flavors:
1. Vanilla
2. White Chocolate Mint
3. Amazing Cake Pop
4. Chocolate Mint Cookie
5. SnickerDoodle
6. Peanut Butter Cookie
7. Frosted Chocolate Cupcake
8. Strawberry Cheesecake
9. Peanut Butter Cup
10. Cookies & Cream
I have not used PES in years but it is a good protein and I love the flavoring, texture, protein blend and macros. I just haven't purchased it because I buy things on sale and I only use so much protein so when I buy 5 pounds it typically lasts a couple months.

But in my experience I have to disagree with The Solution on his flavor ranking haha. C&C was a little sweet but one of my favorites. I love PB so their PB flavors were high up for me and I would put CPBC up at #2 for me. I am normally not a straight chocolate lover, but their Frosted choc is a top 5 for me. I have not tried their cake pop, strawberry cheesecake or mint cookie. Their White choc mint is OK, the second version was way better than the first, but probably falls 6-7 for me.

Now...I am gonna post some studies to show that I am right and he is wrong. BRB.

I am going to have to agree with this. Frosted chocolate and the C&C are 2 of my 3 favorites for PES.

Everyone has their own preferences, but I just found their Chocolate and Chocolate PB To fall short to many others on the market (Sparta Choc PB Cup, IsoFlex Chocolate PB, Xtend Pro Chocolate, Quest PB, Iso100 PB, for some). PES CnC doesn't come close to Beverly CNC which is the king of CNC's on the market.

It could just be that I haven't tried good stuff :) I've never used the Beverly UMP, although I've considered it, but price and macros just don't fit my needs usually...but one day.

I did get some Sparta - but I went with Blueberry Muffin and I wonder if that was a mistake, it's not my favorite. It mixes clumpy for me, texture is not great, and the flavor is not the best. It's not bad, for the price I paid it is fine, but the Blueberry Muffin just disappointed me. Next time I will try their PB flavors.

Quest PB is really good, but again too expensive for my needs except on rare occasions or when I can grab a single serve pack.

Beverly is similar macros to a regular whey blend

Not going to break the bank

Sparta blueberry is one of their worst IMO, very light in blueberry , they have much better options —- Cinna crunch , Pb cups, Krunchy Krisp for example.

With Sparta at 30% OFF right now, $28/2lb tub is the best price you can find to try some of the other flavors.

Here are my reviews on them.

Has anyone tried Carnivor whey? It's made from beef isolate. Are meat based protein superior to milk based protein?

On because it tested well. Lots of them got tested awhile ago and most didn’t meet label claims.

Currently I'm working through a 10 lb bag of Myprotein and also have a 5 lb tub of Chaos and Pain Kraken
My latest have been Rule1 protein, finished up fruity cereal which was decent and am now working with cinna cereal which is quite good. Probably the best of their flavors I've tried to date.

Also using Dymatize EliteXT chocolate for blending into shakes.

I know this is an old thread but it seems like Dave went out of business with Xtreme Formulations? I was looking for some UP 2.0 and can't find it.

Any similar replacements? The man was a badass with flavoring...

(P.S. - Yes I've been away from the supp market for a bit lol)

Lately I've been stocking up on PES, Olympus, Ghost, and Spartan.

None taste as good as XF Lemon, Cinnamon, etc imo tho lol Unless it's the pure nostalgia of those days playing a role.

Ghost PB Cereal
Spartan Fruity Cereal
PES PB Cup / Snickerdoodle / Vanilla / White Choco Mint

Are all awesome, I don't have any real strong preferences other than disliking super chocolatey stuff. Dymatize or Nutrabio Orange Dreamsicle next up on my list. Always open to suggestions!

I was going to suggest those
I would also advise ---

PES -- Chocolate Mint & Cake Pop
Sparta -- Choc PB Cup and Cinna Crunch
Rule 1 Whey Blend -- Toasted Cinnamon Cereal & Fruity Cereal
Sinfit - Fruity Cereal & Cinnamon Roll Smoothie
Quest - Peanut Butter & Cinnamon Crunch

Thanks man, always a fan of PES - even Trutein tbh. I was a rep PES back in the day briefly, when they had Anabeta Elite lol

I'll give the Cake Pop a try along with Nutrabio Orange Dreamsicle. I'm getting a little burnt out on all the cinna crunch / PB flavors for now.

I just remember XF 2.0 Lemon Cream Pie, Cinnamon Roll, and Banana being god tier...Even Illadelphia was hooked hah The blends (Whey / Casein of some sort) seam a little creamier to me plus the satiety and absorption times don't hurt.

Thanks for the suggestions fellas!!

I know Josh (Illa) and met him in real life since he lives in Philly. We go WAY BACK! That is why everything I put above is a blend for you since that seems to be what you prefer. The Nutrabio will be on the thin side (Prob not to your liking) which is the same consistency as the ISO100. Both are very good for Orange Cream flavors, so either is a good change of pace.

I do know the Iso100 Fruity Pebbles and Cocoa Pebbles will be out soon and I should have those in stock very shortly. I'll have to get youtube reviews for those who are interested.

If you do want a thick blend the Build Fast Formula 80/20 which is 80% casein and 20% WPC is super thick, and for a basic chocolate and vanilla have had great reviews.

Yep, I was good friends with Josh for years - went to a buffet with him, Spaz, Connor a bunch of guys. The Orange being a little thinner actually makes sense since its a bit fruitier, so I'll still give it a try. I'm not religious to blends, more just if I have the choice, that's my preference type thing.

As always - appreciate the info. We'll be in touch for sure boss man
