A review for a protein drink on a special needs blog?
MommyRambles, have you finally lost your mind? Do you need more coffee to help you think clearly?
There are some days (weeks?) during which Faith is, ummm, needier, than others. During those days (weeks?) my eating suffers. I don’t have much time or energy to eat a balanced meal. I find myself drinking lots and lots of coffee. Sugary, cream filled coffee.
Wheeeeeeeeee! *Twitch twitch*
Wouldn’t it be awesome if I could take care of some of my protein needs while getting my much needed caffeine buzz? It was this line of thinking that led me to protein shakes. Thinking I had just solved the greatest mystery of all time, I skipped on down to my local GNC and bought an expensive jug’o’powder, sashayed on home with my prize, made up my happy shake, then spit it out. That stuff tasted like monkey butt.
(Disclaimer: I do not actually know what monkey butt tastes like, but it has to be somewhat similar)
I wasn’t quite ready to give up on my idea of fulfilling my protein/caffeine needs in one shot just yet. I took to my trusty interwebz and began reading reviews. It seems that monkey butt is the most common flavor of protein shakes. Bleck. However, I noticed one protein powder getting pretty good reviews. Heck, some of the reviews were straight out raves!
So I ordered Click Espresso Protein Drink. I tried Vanilla Latte.
Oh emm gee.
Click, mixed straight up with water, was hands down the best tasting protein I have ever tried! And it had just enough caffeine in it to help me get through my long days without a huge sugar crash.
“The innovative idea of combining espresso coffee (nature’s own original energy source) with protein and nutrients into a gourmet tasting healthy energy drink just CLICKed one day says fitness experts and founders Greg and Beth Smith. CLICK provides the energy support we all crave with without all the high calorie sugar and fat! Perfect for weight management, a mid day pick me up, or to supplement a work out; CLICK boosts your energy, curbs your appetite, and burns fat so you can perform! CLICK delivers the health you want, heightened with a rich and delicious taste – so good you’ll forget that it’s also good FOR you!”
Vanilla Latte Click has become a morning staple. It was exactly what I was looking for, a perfect mix of coffee, vanilla and protein. Even if you think that protein shakes are not for you, try this one. Hot, cold, blended or even made into ice cream. It is smooth and rich and about as anti-monkey butt tasting as you can get! Want to try some yourself? Of course you do! Mommy Rambles would like to offer one lucky winner a 14 serving size canister of their very own to get Click’n!
