Oliver Brown is a well-known dessert cafe filled with chocolate goodies that have introduced multiple new products to their menu…a while ago. One of them is the Protein Choc Shake range. There are 3 flavours: Banana, Boosted and Peanut Butter. However, the franchise nearest to me only offers 2 of the 3 flavours: Peanut Butter and Banana. I have had all 3 flavours and for today’s post, I have the review of all 3 flavours concluding with an overall thought.
Peanut Butter Protein Choc Shake
I personally do not like peanut butter however this shake has indeed changed my opinion about peanut butter. Well, peanut butter flavoured food. I still most likely will not ever eat physical peanut butter.
The consistency is a cross between a milkshake and a thickshake: it is too thick for a milkshake but too thin for a thickshake; in my opinion. It is quite filling and I stayed quite full for a while; that day I had a snack for dinner rather than a meal. So that is always a bonus.
The shake is also quite light. I have had countless milkshakes and thickshakes where the shake itself is quite heavy. So much so that I feel very nauseous after them. However, this could possibly be due to the increased sensitivity to sugar and dairy products I have.
Banana Protein Choc Shake
Bananas are one of my favourite fruits, I absolutely love them. However, this shake definitely needs more bananas in it. This shake was quite bland. It tasted like milk with a hint of protein powder (I am assuming) and a heap of sugar.
I strongly suggest you do not get this flavour as I think it is a waste of money. The shake, just like the Peanut butter flavour, is also quite light and the consistency is in between a milkshake and thickshake. I felt nauseous after drink this flavour as I personally do not have this much sugar in a drink.
Boosted Protein Choc(olate) Shake
The exact same case as the banana flavoured shake:
- The shake was quite bland
- It tasted like milk with a hint of protein powder (I am assuming) and a heap of sugar
- It is also quite light and the consistency is in between a milkshake and thickshake
I strongly suggest you do not get this flavour as I think it is a waste of money, again.
I think it is reasonably priced for an Oliver Brown product ($8.90 AUD) and for a product that has protein powder (I am assuming) in it. Protein powder is quite expensive and having a relatively low price considering the ingredients is always a good thing. Overall these shakes are quite good and it just comes down to preference over flavour for me. I can definitely sense addiction to peanut butter flavoured food coming along, that is always a good sign from a product; in my opinion.
