Anyone Use Whey Fruity?

I am trying to find a protein powder that I can take to work and have during the day. However, I was trying to go the low carb route and saving those for real food. I cam upon Whey Fruity from Molecular Nutrition. Each serving has 26gm protein and 0 carbs as they use Splenda as a sweetner. Anyone every use? Comments? I also found Nectar but didn’t look into that too much. Was hoping that someone on here has used it. I am looking for a protein powder with a fruity taste. Most of the Vanilla and Choc powders I have problems drinking. Unsure why but can’t seem to choke them down. Hoping that something with a fruity flavor will help.

Did you bother looking on this site?

The stuff here tastes way better than the average stuff you’ve probably used. I would suggest getting one tub of each and trying them. They’re not expensive.

Hopefully strawberry will be here soon, but in the mean time, I bet you’ll like Chocolate Low-Carb Grow! better than you think.

Have you tried Low-Carb Grow! It really does taste amazing. There’s a big difference between your run-of-the-mill discount protein, and a top quality protein like Grow!. You will taste the difference. If you haven’t tried Grow!, you might want to give it a shot. . . you might find that you like Chocolate or Vanilla afterall. :wink:

As for the others, I’ve never tried Whey Fruity, but I have tried Nectar, and it rocks. It’s basically the “other” protein that I use regularly, when I’m not in the mood for Chocolate or Vanilla (or for special circumstances like below). It tastes more like Kool-Aid than a protein drink, and it tastes better than the more opaque protein powders when you mix it with extra water. I tend to drink a lot, so I like to fill up a 64oz jug with water and 2 scoops of Nectar (sometimes a little Crystal Light, too) to sip through the day.

My only suggestion on the Nectar is avoid the “Caribean Cooler” flavor. I didn’t like that one. The others are great, though.

I have tried Low-Carb Grow! vanilla and I couldn’t stand it. I found it to have a coconutty aftertaste and I hate coconut. I haven’t tried the chocolate yet. I tried using Surge also and didn’t care for that either. I know I am in the minority here but what can I say. The flavor just doesn’t work for me that is why I was looking for something in the fruity line. For those of you that have used Grow! vanilla and chocolate, does the chocolate taste much different than the vanilla? I mean besides the fact that one is vanilla and one is chocolate.

Chocolate Low-Carb Grow! all the way!

If the vanilla flavor is just not doing it for you - check out Shugs’ Velocity Vixen diet blog. He mentions some noncaloric flavors that might help you out.

Also, play around with how much water you use in your Surge drinks. I’ve found that very cold water, and more than indicated on the label, cuts the sweetness down big time. If you’ve still got some left, give it a try - you might like it!

Hope this helps!

Come on guy, Whey Fruity? Just say the name a couple of times…Whey Fruity, Whey fruity…That’s what you will be if you buy and drink that crap. Way Fruity.

LMAO!

I did think it was a weird name but if it works then its fine with me. I will search the forum for some flavoring that I can add to the Low-Carb Vanilla Grow!.

It’s nice to see an open discussion on another companies prducts here. That said I’d go with sytrax nectar. If you have a vitaminn shoppe near you get it there and if the taste sucks return it and try another one. I like tropical fruit and the apple is alright. BTW I know neither product is as high quality as Grow!, but I’m sure you know that. Besides if you can’t eat it it won’t do anything for you. Muscle milk aslo has some good fruit flavors ie, orange creamsicle, pina colada, and pinnapple mango. Once again the fat/carb content isn’t near comparable to Grow!/Surge, but that wasn’t the question.

Thanks all for the replies. I just saw that they are coming out with a Strawberry flavored Low-Carb Grow!. Maybe that is the answer. Strawberry should be tolerable. I havn’t tried chocolate though either. I wish there was some place that you could get a free sample or something before you buy a 2lb jub of the stuff.

So you liked this stuff, Wideguy? I tried it once (the cherry, I believe) for a PWO when Surge was out-of-stock. I found it downright nauseating.

I’ll agree about the Muscle Milk, though. I usually recommend it to the guys that insist on a “weight gainer” product.

Has anyone else developed a taste (for me, an insatiable craving) for vanilla Low-Carb Grow! with Greens+ mixed in? I love this stuff. It is like a salad-flavored milkshake. [I’m really not kidding. I want one right now.]

If you don’t like it, I’ll take it. I’m sure it’s a tax write-off, or something. :wink:
