Review: Muscle Milk Cake Batter RTD
I have wanted to try Muscle Milk for a very long time. I had planned to go for a simple flavour like chocolate or vanilla but my sweet tooth got the better of me and I wound up with a cake batter flavour ready-to-drink shake.
The taste? Yuck. Easily one of the worst protein shakes I’ve tried. I can’t even fathom how this flavour made it out of the testing department as CytoSport. I’ll admit that the after-taste was a little bit like cake batter, but overall it was the strongest, foulest chemical taste I’ve come across in a protein. It was so bad I couldn’t drink it.
Another point that’s possibly worth mentioning – there’s actually two servings per container in the RTD’s. I’m pretty sure a lot of people wouldn’t take notice of this and would drink the whole thing (if the flavour was better). The container is insulated though so I guess you could probably keep the second serving reasonably cool without a fridge for a short period of time.
Overall score: 2/10
I am totally disappointed. Apparently the chocolate and banana flavours are good, so maybe I’ll try them one day.
