MP New Flavour Review - Rocky Road
I was chosen by MP to review one of their new flavours - I chose Rocky Road, of which MP generously sent me 2.5kg of their Impact Whey Protein. Now, I'm a bit sweet lover, and Rocky Road is a big favourite of mine so I was keen on getting stuck into it. Plus I'm trying to lose some timber and this was hopefully going to be a stand in (sort of).
I have always found that MP whey mixes well and leaves no real lumps or clumps. This was no different and easily dispersed into water. However, I must say that the flavour wasn't really what I was expecting in that it tasted more like a weak chocolate shake with some sweetness, but not the rocky road I had hoped for. Nonetheless I tried it with a little less water than recommended: even at 100ml the flavour reminded me of a chocolate shake with too little flavouring.
I'm also keen on making protein pancakes with a bit of powder and a few eggs of a morning, so gave this a go. Again, there was some sweetness there, but flavour seemed to be lacking. Please don't get me wrong, the flavour is nice. I just wouldn't call it rocky road and it isn't a flavour I'd buy with my own money. Please note that I only used water. The flavour could be different if mixed with milk, so please feel free to comment if you've done so and agree/disagree.
Strangely I've been enjoying chocolate coconut from MP recently. But this doesn't really taste like you'd expect it to - there's no real taste of coconut. It tastes nice with water and makes a decent tasting pancake, so I think I'll be sticking with that!
