Metabolic Drive: Favorite Flavors

Just posting to get an idea for favorite flavors.

Im a big fan of the milk chocolate and wanted to know what peoples other favorite flavors were so I can get some variety in my flavors of protein.

Its quality stuff

Vanilla. Amazing.

Agreed. I like vanilla for both Metabolic Drive and Metabolic Drive Complete. To be honest, I really really miss the old Vanilla Grow!

Chocolate if I am mixing it with only water.

Vanilla if I am adding it to something. Like yogurt, oatmeal or mixing with fruit.

any thoughts on banana or orange?

i heard its more of a orange & creme type taste and anyone like the banana?

I actually like the banana it tastes amazing, not too fake like some banana flavorings. The orange to me was too bitter. Just my opinion.

Dont the other flavors have a different nutrient profile than the milk chocolate? chocolate is
100cal w/ 20g protein, 1.5 fat and like 3 or 4 carbs

does anyone know the profiles of these other flavors? its not on the store’s supplement info

Banana is very good.

They are all the same I believe, and all of the flavors are awesome (I didnt like strawberry, but other raved about it). Try them out and see.

ok so…good feedback…

so general consensus is chocolate, vanilla, banana?
anyone else with an opinion?

-if someone could tell me the nutrient profiles of these other flavors besides chocolate that would be great.

chocolate is a must then i vary the rest this time banana, maybe strawberry next time had orange last time , they’re all good

banana same except 1 gram less carb (3) and half gram more fat (2),110 calories

The only one w/ 100 calories is the chocolate, the rest have 110.

Personally, I think the Strawberry is the “fakest” tasting. Banana is amazing when mixed with chocolate, and Vanilla by itself is pretty bland but best for mixing as its the most neutral flavor. Chocolate is definitely great.

Metabolic Drive Complete
vanilla hands down choclate is good but has a aftertaste to it I don’t really like.

Low-Carb Metabolic Drive
Vanilla good for shakes or with milk do not like with water

chocalate easisest to get down with just water good with milk and some mixes

strawberry probaly my fav good with water milk and breakfest shakes

banana I LOVE this one as a mix in big shakes OK with milk or water

orange Did not like at all, odd flavor

In order of best to worst imo: orange, banana, vanilla, chocolate, strawberry.

Vanilla is always good for it’s mixing potential with anything from yogurt to fruit or vegetables.

Chocolate Complete tastes like cake better to me and I love it. I also like to mix a lot of the flavors.

My morning super shake is One to two scoops Metabolic Complete Vanilla with an broccoli, apple, banana, and blueberries, with a scoop of either Banana or Strawberry Low-Carb thrown in.

Chocolate Low-Carb is great for an evening chocolate fix. Grow! Premium Whey is great with blueberries. Orange Cream tastes just like a creamsicle.

I love the milk chocolate, so I stick with that. I think it tastes amazing. Other guys in the locker room even comment on how good it smells. I tried the Strawberry once and hated it. I don’t consider myself overly picky or anything, and I generally love strawberry flavor, but it just tasted awful to me.

I usually have Metabolic Drive as a breakfast shake and a snack during the day, sometimes i even mix it in cottage cheese…so I’m trying to have a variety of good flavors

Basically everything has been good with milk that I have tried
-Banana…as well as Chocolate

However,when it comes to just water chocolate and vanilla are well above the banana?

Hows the strawberry with just h20?
better with milk?

Would everyone say the best w/ water is chocolate?

Any comments are appreciated…

IMO vanilla, choc, and banana are equally good. Strawberry makes me want to yak which is to bad because I like strawberries. If I had to pick a favorite, I would say banana and/or chocolate (which is odd because I don’t like chocolate that much).
