YAY! Variety is the spice of life. I must get home and determine what will accompany the strawberry. :)

Daniel,

have you thought about selecting maybe 10 forum members, and mail them 2 servings of strawberry so they could taste it in water and milk, and then come back with a review?

i'm sure its good stuff since the vanilla and choc are wicked good, but unbiased customer reviews are great.

(and yes, I'm still trying to get a free sample :) )

Just ordered some. I'll post a review if you wish. With their track record I think it will probably be THE best tasting strawberry or pretty damn close.

PM me your address, I'll send you a free sample. :)

We will see how everyone else likes it but I LOVE it! I like it better than the chocolate.

Just curious how long the testing and everything took for the strawberry?

Not too long actually. We have some very good folks on the payroll who know how to handle the flavoring aspect.

It's a tie for me with the chocolate. (taste-wise) I love them both though. Great job Chris and Dan!!

that's too bad. i'd love to see some strawberry opticen as well. i'm sure a lot of others would too.

well, here's my verdict:

with dextrose added for PWO meal, strawberry is awesome. it tastes just like nestle strawberry quik.

without the dextrose, it was a very light strawberry, not fake, not overpowering. better than the couple of 'berry' type flavors I tried from other brands.

it would also be hella good during workout if you do Berardi's .4g carbs / .2g protein shake for cutting.

nice work guys.

I agree, it is a nice, smooth flavor. Too many companies overdo strawberry. Thanks for your thoughts.

I got my order the other day and just had my first Strawberry. It's not at all what I was expecting. It didn't smell artificial and chemical like so much other strawberry flavoring. Just took a scoop in 8oz of skim milk and I'm impressed. The flavoring was just perfect.

Whoever you've got in the flavoring department needs a raise.

RedSpikeyThing

Has anyone tried a scoop of chocolate with a scoop of strawberry? When I order some more, that's the first thing I'm going to be doing!

EDIT: You should have a promo sale for a variety pack - one of each flavour.

It is good, eh? Kind of subtle and smooth.

This stuff is great, it kinda smells like a captain crunch or something else I can' put my finger on when I drink it. I put a half teaspoon of stawberry syrup in with it and it's amazing. 3 scoops of this, 2 tablespoons of olive oil, 3 tablespoons of natural pb and 3 cups of milk and it goes down so good.

I forgot to post this, but I agree with everyone else - the strawberry is awesome! I usually don't like anything other than chocolate/vanilla, but Chris & Dan pulled this off big time!

Mercuryblade
11-04-2006, 12:06 AM
Strawberry taste isn't overwhelming which is good, sometimes my stomach gets a little wierd from my meds after working out, definately one of the best whey proteins I've tried. Tastes really really good if you add strawberry syrup, and a banana.

I actually agree. It is my personal choice.

11-13-2006, 03:41 PM
I just want to say that I was skeptical of the strawberry being better than other fruit-flavored whey I've experienced in the past.

...until I ordered a tub to see for myself.

Strawberry Nitrean is the shiznit! It's like a bowl of strawberries and cream in a glass.

Spamwise approves. ;)

I am a big fan of the strawberry flavor. Very good.

The vanilla on the other hand I have tried for the first time is not so good. Definitely will steer clear of that next time.

Mind you I mix only in water, so it may taste better with milk :cool:

Thanks for posting your opinon (good and bad). We have MANY customers who think the vanilla is the best ever. Taste is a subjective thing but we have been lucky enough to sell flavors that appeal to the vast majority of people.

Yep, the strawberry is excellent. Tastes very good with milk.

I like strawberry the most by far! It seems to mix easier than chocolate.

Bob

I got my first strawberry yesterday.. and I have to say it tastes good.. not as great as the chocolate.. but more then good enough to drink & enjoy.

In fact, I think it tastes exactly like McDonalds Strawberry Shakes.. lol. Which I guess could be a selling point. lol

Thanks again Chris & Daniel.. good job.. now for a Gatorade-ish Berry flavor!

Just got and tried the Strawberry Nitrean. It tasted good but IMO chocolate still takes the prize. Chocolate Nitrean with milk tastes like a chocolate chip frappe....

Fearsome Bobcat
12-12-2006, 06:44 PM
I've got some strawberry Nitrean and I like it. It's great in a blender with a banana, some water and a few ice cubes. For a little variety, I'll sometimes shake up a scoop of strawberry and a scoop of vanilla with some cold water--that combination is good, too.

I even used a blender, it just tasted really chalky and not smooth like the chocolate

Glad to hear the strawberry is getting such great reviews, about to order some as soon as i'm done typing this message. Making sure to take advantage of the xmas present discount. I was hesitant to try it because I think I must be the only person who doesn't like the taste of the chocolate. In either water or milk still have the tub 3/4's full. That's why i'm hoping the strawberry will be great. Will give my review as soon as I receive it.

Our chocolate unique and while nealy everyone loves it you simply cannot appeal to every single person. There is no food or beverage in the world everyone likes so no, I am sure you are not the only one.

That said, strawberry is quite different and I am pretty sure you will like it.

I've had the opposite experience. The strawberry and vanilla have both mixed better than chocolate.

Damn. It's good. Even with just skim milk.

Good to know. I just got my shipment of choc and strawberry, hadn't tried the latter yet.

Btw, the "bench tips" insert is great. :) I saw it in the box and thought, "is ALN out with a magazine or something?"

How the heck are people mixing these things? I throw it in a shaker and shake for dear life... for some time. Always mixes great.

Beast
01-06-2007, 07:27 PM
I shaker it too, Mike - always with skim milk. Sometimes I'll add a bit of water to the shake to make mixing the chocolate easier. I've never had the strawberry clump, but the chocolate is thicker.

I hate to be the voice of dissent. I got the strawberry Nitrean but I'm not loving it- it's not agreeing with my stomach and the taste is far too bland. :( The taste is very mild, which works for the chocolate, but I expected more punch from the strawberry shake.

OFFER: I've had it open for 2 days and used 5 level scoops of the Strawberry Nitrean. I'll sell the remainder of the tub to anyone who wants to try it for $30 and I'll eat the shipping charge. If anyone wants to paypal me the money I'll gladly ship it out to them ASAP (in USA only).


I'm not sure I understand the stomach thing as there is no reason it should cause a problem if you don't experience it with our other flavors. On the taste issue I understand as you simply cannot make something everyone loves. I know that just about everyone who has tried it likes it but I know that you cannot please 100% of the people 100% of the time.

The stomach thing may very well be my reaction to whatever flavor is in there: some flavors/preservatives/etc. don't like me. The taste thing, absolutely agree. I took a risk when I ordered it. For the record: the flavor is not offensive in any way... it's just too bland for me.

I'll try the strawberry and if I don't like it, I'll order the other flavors. But I'm not liking this "bland" thing that people are talking about. I'll just have to try it myself.

chris mason
01-14-2007, 04:24 PM
I don't consider it to be bland, but it is not an overpowering strawberry taste. To me, it is a very smooth flavor which is my personal favorite and the favorite of many who have tried it.
