SGX C2W1D1: Orange Creamsicle Heaven

Yeehaw! My latest All The Whey order has arrived, and I am so addicted to the orange whey blend flavor it isn’t even funny. This protein powder tastes like a liquid Orange Creamsicle with just plain cold water. Add a scoop of dextrose to it for a postworkout shake and it tastes even more supercalifragilisticixpialidocious.

Most of the time, artificial fruit flavors, especially citrus ones, give me migraines, but no such problems with ATW orange. I only bought a 2 lb canister this time around, but I can tell you now that I’ll be going whole hog for the 5 pounder when this one runs out.

The ATW chocolate mint is quite tasty as well, but it may be just a tad too minty for me straight with water. I will give it a go with some dextrose on Wednesday when I train again, perhaps with a teaspoon of baking cocoa tossed in to up the chocolate factor. I haven’t tried my vat of ATW vanilla yet, but my sister says it is not so bad when mixed with water and used as a sub for milk with Kashi Go Lean cereal, or, in my case, my new love, Fiber One.

For those of you who didn’t catch my post last week, I am embarking on another round of Swolegenix for the next four weeks. Since I agreed not to reveal the specifics of my custom diet plan when I bought my program from Chris Janusz, I won’t be posting my meals or macros again until I switch over to Leanness Lifestyle (aka BFL with tracking and extra cardio) in four weeks.

  1. Miss ya being around Maggie 😉

    Orange? Just wrong… seriously – how can you have a fruit flavor when CHOCOLATE is to be had???? And too sweet??? Pshaw! :jester:

  2. One year of chocolate can wear even the diehard fan down. I’m just so happy to find a fruit flavor that isn’t as outright nasty as EAS banana creme (and now strawberry, too, since I’ve developed a total gag reflex when trying to drink it with water).

  3. I definitely agree. Last year, my faves were strawberry and chocolate, but now I can’t get enough of the ATW orange. Vanilla will do when I run short of orange. My least favorite flavors are the chocolate mint (just can’t get used to the artificial mint flavor) and banana :yuck:

  4. Yeah, I agree, bodybuilding supplements are soooo limited when taste is concerned, when will we get “garden cocktail” ISO drinks and “chicken broth” weight gain powder?

    or, if ya lucky you can find fruit flavors… but as a rule everything is sweet. I hate sweets, I never liked desert even as a kid, now get me som protein rich potato chips!
