* Just got this in the mail, and I'm rather disappointed with the variety: with one exception ALL the proteins are whey -- and the exception is casein. It includes no egg, soy, or other protein products, nor any of the combined products, which is a let down. I'd really hoped to compare the flavors of different protein sources.
Also, be warned that the vast majority of the samples are some variety of chocolate flavored, the exceptions I got being being vanilla (1), cookie/cake (2), lemonade (1), and berry (1). If you're not into chocolate, this may be frustrating.
That said, I love the concept, and wow, there are a lot of little packages of chocolate flavored whey to try out in there.
* This is a great selection of protein powders in a wide variety of flavors. My only disappointment is that two of the packets (two flavors of Syntha-6) contain wheat. I might not have bought this had I known. Several others contain egg and soy. They all contain whey and other components of dairy. Most are protein blends. I'll try to remember to donate the Syntha-6 packets to a food drive.
If you spend enough to choose a gift from netrition, you can get the bag of free samples which contains even more (and different) protein powders. Syntrax has a sampler too.
* I give this four stars and not five because frankly, not all the proteins in this package are meant for human consumption, and if they are...well then they weren't made for MY consumption. HOWEVER, the beauty of it is, you get a great variety of powders (and one liquid) to try for you to decide what works best for you! So you don't have to blindly order a 4lb tub of powder and pray you'll be able to choke it down. If you can't tell by now, I'm new to the protein powder diet, and have not had much luck with it, but was finally able to find one I LOVE in this package. Thank you NETRITION for putting this package together!! I'm finally going to get the protein my body has been lacking with a smile on my face! :)
