Also tried the mixed berry.
Delicious! Again smoothest pea protein. Nice level of sweetness. No nasty aftertaste from adding in a flavour . Have just purchased
Smoothest pea protein I’ve ever tried .
No flavour at all , perfect to add into whatever else you are putting in. It doesn’t change the flavour at all.
After getting some good online advise from NZ Protein I selected 4 different sample sachets. I ordered two each of the Pea Isolate Salted Caramel, Wild Berry, Vanilla and Chocolate. My preference was for the Salted Caramel and Wild Berry. You can add up to 500ml per serving of chilled water however I found that 300mls of filtered chilled water retained a lot more of the flavour and was creamer to drink. Shake very well before drinking. I am 67 and using this product as I required very low carbohydrate drink. I vary between one and two drinks a day. I have already ordered and am using the 1kg pack of salted caramel and the product is part of my pantry now. Good Health. Thanks NZ Protein buying local helps everyone. Kevin
Dense & heavy in the tummy.
I tried samples in a few flavours and the double chocolate was yummiest! Very slight texture but didn't bother me at all. Great post training treat!
The flavour itself was great but the problem is the gritty-ness. I prefer the Faba Bean protein powder, personally.
Love our Pea protein From NZ Protein. We get the sample packets because they are easy for my husband when he travels away for his sport. Easy to order and very fast delivery . Will definitely keep ordering 👏😊
I bought a few sample sachets of the pea isolate powder. The chocolate flavour is very good and I will be ordering a greater amount soon.
Tried this protein powder today. So far so good. Trying different sorts to see what works with my dicky tummy. This seems to be gentle and still tasty. Great to chuck in shakes for a good protein hit.
These samples are really great as I was able to try all the flavours and see if my IBS would agree with the protein powder before committing to buying a big bag (which it does!). The pea protein texture is something you have to get used to over time, my fave flavours are orange choc, raspberry white choc and double choc as they have the least pea after taste.
Tried Orange Choc sachet - yummy. Will be including in next order.
Good, but definite pea aftertaste.
Absolutely loved the samples as it allowed me to try each flavour. I chose four sample flavours - salted caramel, mixed berry, vanilla and mango. The mixed berry was my least favourite and mango my ultimate favourite. Really enjoyed the texture of the pea protein, it blended amazingly well with the rice milk and I have placed an order for a bigger packet of pea protein in mango flavour. The delivery was super speedy as well which is an added bonus!
Chalky texture Even though I had put it through the blender. I keep searching for a non-dairy-based protein but the P stuff from this company and other companies is not the winner in my mind and tastebuds. NZPROTEIN REPLY: we're sorry you didn't like it. Pea protein is a little grainy by nature. For non-dairy try our beef and egg white protein powders, or faba bean as another plant base.
Love the sample sizes but the pea protein isn't my favorite, hence why its great to try 1st
Sample sachets are a great way to try what could be an otherwise money-wasting exercise. However, NZ Protein's pea isolate is one of the best products of its type in my opinion. The Mixed Berry is superb. Great to have a choice of stevia or sucralose as most of these proteins have stevia only; one of the few tastes I can't stand.
Highly rate NZ Protein- your communication updates and delivery times were 10/10 (speediest delivery in the history of delivery) and the flavours I tried were all delicious looking forward to placing an order for the full size pea protein (choc and the original vanilla were chefs kiss)
Great way to introduce myself to pea protein - worth getting a mix of flavours to see what you like.
Nice flavour and easily mixes to a smooth blend.
Wow - these samples taste amazing and mix up so well with water.
Fantastic loved it , have ordered 1kg .Fantastic service too....order one day here the next .
I ordered the peanut butter and it's got a great taste. Mixed well in a blender. The texture tends to clump together pretty nicely, so I think it'd also be good for use in baking. Arrived very quickly, too
I really enjoyed the chocolate flavour. A big tick from me.
came super fast in the post, really impressed with service overall. tried the chocolate, peanut butter and vanilla flavour samples. so far chocolate is my favourite. they do have a certain after taste and powdery consistency.
It's not bad, but my taste buds don't really like the pea protein after taste. Prefer Fava or Hemp
I love all your flavours I have tried so far. Mixes so well and so delicious. You've got a new loyal customer.
Best pea protein. Easy to mix, not too grainy and flavours were on point. Here are my recommendations for best tasting flavours to my least favourite flavours: jellytip, chocolate, peanut butter, salted caramel, mixed berry and white choc raspberry. Also great service! I’ve been buying off nzprotein since 2018 and you can guarantee they’re the fastest service on the market and the cheapest & yummiest too.
Really enjoyed the Salted Caramel flavour pea protein - easy to shake, easy to drink and has a really great flavour. It might be a little on the sweet side for some, but I love it.
Excellent taste, great delivery and pricing, thanks guys!
I tried some samples again cos I hadn't had your pea protein in a few years. Wish I'd stuck with it, your pea has really improved since last time. Thanks
I have had a few different brands of pea before. They're all grainy but this one not so much. It can take a little getting used to if you've come from whey like I did. But overall I enjoyed the flavours I tried and have put an order through this morning :)
I tried 3 of the sample sachets - Gourmet Vanilla, Mixed Berry and White Choc and Raspberry. I have been using pea protein for a number of years and have tried many different brands. NZProtein's has been the easiest powder to mix in water and unlike the last brand I tried there is no prolonged bitter aftertaste. I personally found the vanilla flavour lacking in a vanilla hit and over-sweet for my tastes. The White Choc and Raspberry was my least favourite - I found the raspberry to be a very artificial taste. My favourite was the Mixed Berry - it is a very subtle taste compared to others I have tried but was just the right amount of sweetness for me. I will be continuing to use the Mixed Berry and also purchase the unflavoured so I can make a vanilla shake to my taste. Compared to other brands on the market I feel that these powders are exceptional value for money and I am really pleased to have found them.
Genuinely the best protein I’ve ever had. The taste is perfect and the texture works with anything. And such a good price point too!
Loving this NZ product. Important for me as a vegetarian to get maximum protien, and this gives me a big boost, it tastes great and mixes well. 💯 % endorse NZ Protein.
The texture and ability to blend is fantastic. However, the flavor is extremely lacking and doesn't cover the taste of the protein itself, which personally made it a struggle to consume. NZPROTEIN REPLY: pea protein can taking a bit of getting used to, it's not the same as the milk based proteins. We try our best to flavour them!
As far as pea proteins go the cinnamon chai is really good! I’ve tried balance and happy way pea proteins, both were hard to stomach but this you can’t tell it’s not Whey protein! It’s not gritty and the cinnamon flavour is tasty! Really good mixed with porridge in the morning!
Tastes soooo good! Keep coming back to NZ protein because their products are so nice, so well priced and their shipping comes the same or next day!
That chai pra protein is ahhmazing!!!
I love an iced chai.. but not so much the health benefits haha this hit the spot for sweet/chai/yummyness. I tried a sample as all pea proteins I've tried are gross. So surprised with this so ordering a huge bag! Thank you!!!! Made my life.
I tried the chocolate flavour, pretty good taste and really me a protein burst after drinking it.
Very fast shipment and excellent price too.
Nice taste, mixes pretty well.
very great product and fast service.. loved it .. ordering a few 1kg bags soon....
Fantastic, taste is great. Bonus that it didn’t upset my stomach so good for people with digestion sensitivity!!
Trial formula flavours were okay (tried Chocolate and Jelly Tip), but the thick frothy consistency was not good. Mixed well in the wave shaker, no lumps. Some gritty texture as expected with pea protein, but seemed smoother than the previous formula. Can't get past the thick frothy consistency though, makes it a bit hard to drink. The search continues...
I had each flavour with the recommended amount of water. Each flavour when mixed with the super foods super blend tasted vomit-inducingly bad so as a general PSA, don't do it. Also the pea protein froths up like no tomorrow so every time you drink it you basically end up gulping air at the end which leads to you feeling bloated for a couple of hours and burping to get all the air out of you. Not particularly pleasant and would prefer it to froth up less. The rest of my review will be my impressions of each of the flavours I tried.
Double Chocolate - Tasted fine, more or less what you'd expect it to taste like.
Vanilla - Nope. Hated this one. Tasted almost like unflavoured pea protein.
Jellytip - Not my favourite but its alright. Jellytip flavour was subtle, probably would taste better without the backdrop of the pea protein but what can you do.
Lemon, Honey, Turmeric - Bizarre. Not really for me. Basically tastes like lemon and turmeric with very little honey.
Peanut Butter - By far the nicest flavour of the bunch. Peanuts and pea protein actually taste nice together.
Overall because I use the Super Blend in my shakes I can't use the pea protein but if you don't use the Super Blend then there are some decent flavours in there so long as you don't mind the frothing.
jelly Tip flavour was okay, nice and subtle but probably would be nicer with Whey as creamier. Pea protein is just too gritty for my liking.
Had a bad flavour to it, I couldn’t finish it. Sad cause I love the hemp protein one so much and it’s delicious so had high hopes for the pea protein
Product quality is as expected, however did not enjoy this flavour so glad it was only a sample size.
Flavour is ok, but was overpowered when i put into a smoothie. Nice taste when its shaken on its own with water/milk
Still really great service and fast shipping but didn't like the flavour of the new vanilla formula as much as the old one... didn't notice much difference in the texture either unfortunately.
First time trying the pea isolate for me. I didn't like it as much as the whey products, and you really do need to sample the flavours as some worked really well, others did not, and I think that these ones really come down to personal preference.
It mixed really well, and I didn't have full on grainyness, but it is different to the whey products. I'm glad that NZ Protein does the samples, lets you try before you buy the bigger packs.
Easy to mix but taste just wasn't my cup of tea.
Really didn?t like this. It was super gritty and tasted like paste. Didn?t mix well with water and no amount of fruit could save it. NZPROTEIN REPLY - needs more water than with whey. Mixes very well but you need to add more.
Maple syrup was incredibly sweet! A bit too sweet for me. Tasted like I'd poured a whole bottle of maple in there haha. I do love the other flavors though! They are very hyper sweet though.
I got a bunch of sample sachet to try all the different flavours. As pea protein has a unique taste and slightly grainy consistency, I struggled to drink the protein shakes by themselves (other than the salted caramel flavour), but found them to be okay in smoothies. That being said, this is by far the best pea protein I have tried compared to other brands - they are definitely not as sweet/?fake?, there is no unpleasant lingering aftertaste, and they are not as grainy. The service was incredibly fast (ordered Saturday night, arrived first thing Monday morning) and is a fantastic price for the amount of protein you get per serve. I would recommend to anyone looking to explore this route or wanting to replace pea protein they currently use.
AMAZINGLY quick delivery and really great product, love that you can "try" before you buy - what a great idea! AND great tasting Whey Protein, the Whey Isolate was also great tasting, but not as thick as the Whey - but they do tell you this in their blurb. Have not tasted the Pea Protein yet -----
I tried the maple syrup flavour and it was really good. I added one scoop (half the sachet) to my overnight oats, it gave them a slightly sweet maple flavour but not too overpowering. Will be buying the big packet next time.
Nice flavour, but taste is a bit funny.
Great taste and seems to be the least expensive on the internet to buy. I definitely will be buying a bigger container. Excellent value.
My favourite pea protein on the market!
Nice flavour. Not as grainy as other brands I have tried. Nice with water or nut milk. Very reasonably priced.
Great tasting, enjoyed the opportunity to sample the products. Only criticism would be that the sachets explode when you open them because they're so full! Not a bad problem to have, just worth noting. Will be buying 1kg!
super quick dispatch of the product, arrived next working day - made my protein shake as I usually would (water, ice and one banana) This is far nicer than the Clean Lean Protein that I have been using, no gritty texture and the shake is nice and thick. love to support an NZ company as well, will be buying a larger quantity! thanks so much
Great tasting, mixes well and super fast arriving the day after I ordered! I also only ordered one but got two!!!! Will definitely be getting a 1kg of this after trying the samples. Thanks so much NZ Protein!
It tasted a bit strange but not unpleasant. Works well in smoothies. I like the chocolate flavour best.
