Is it just me, or is there anyone else out there who is thoroughly sick of the thoroughly sickly-sweet standard of MRPs and protein shakes?
I don’t mean to knock Metabolic Drive, I love it like I love cunnilingus, but man, that stuff is sweet. I know that sucralose contains negligible calories, but my pancreas gland is easily fooled, and I’m not hungry again for quite a while after drinking an especially large shake. This from a man who is ALWAYS hungry.
Whey proteins mixes are okay, at least with them I can control how sweet they get, but still, I demand a readily-mixable alternative, damn it.
My friend Henry once had to subsist totally on shakes for a few weeks after they wired his jaw shut (because I broke it with a Muay Thai round kick. Sorry, Henry!) His shake of choice was a quart of whole milk with a dash of salt and Tabasco sauce, and a pint of beef blood from the butcher. “Just like the Masai tribesmen,” he said. “I had tons of energy afterwards!”
Well, yeah, great, but I’m not sure I want any BSE or tuberculosis in my shake. It just… how you say… wouldn’t be kosher.
However, Henry’s vampiric culinary adventure gave me an idea: why not a line of Metabolic Drive Real Food Flavor MRPs?
For instance: we could have Bacon & Egg flavor for the early morning, Chinese Chicken Salad flavor for the afternoon (Combo Pizza flavor for cheat days) and Top Sirloin and Baked Potato flavor for the evening. And while we’re at it, why not have Double Espresso flavor Power Drive, and Guinness Stout flavor Surge?
I’m not saying Biotest should trash the current Metabolic Drive flavors. They totally rock. However, someone who drinks a lot of shakes a day (like perhaps someone on the Velocity Diet) might like something not so sweet once in a while.
Anybody else? Or am I a lone voice in the protein wilderness?
