Today we’ve gone ahead and picked up the Shakeology product on line to give you our views. If you can afford/stomach this product it’s definitely the shake for you. We’ll talk about that more in the breakdown.
Wow, this shake is not meant for the dieter on a budget. A 30-Day supply of Shakeology come in at $120.00 which is $4 per serving! That’s one of the highest costing shakes we’ve had posted on MRSR.com. We wanted to sample both flavors for you, but we just couldn’t afford to! As you can see in the comment section you can sign up as a coach (their MLM) and get a reduced price but it only drops it to about 3.83 per serving after it’s all said and done.
Here’s a heads up for you guys out there, this shake mixes up thick and we mean really thick. It’s loaded with all sorts of fiber and proteins and if you can get through the entire shake, you’re going to be full for a couple hours. We really suggest mixing this with a very watery beverage, (skim milk, water, or maybe a fruit juice). It turns to concrete in your stomach.
Shakeology stands above the crowd when it comes to nutrients. Holy cow this shake is just jam-packed with essential vitamins and minerals, placing it well over 50% of your RDI (Recommended Daily Intake) per serving. 140 Calories isn’t bad either and on top of that they’ve thrown in ton of non-essential health nutrients like Wheat Grass, Barley Grass, all sorts of fibers and other “holistic” nutrients to keep you feeling good. One shake and we had enough energy to keep us going throughout our day, that’s for sure!
Okay, other products that have been offering us only Vanilla and Chocolate flavors have been given lower scores for lack of variety. Well, Shakeology made us eat our words in a bad way.
Shakeology comes in two flavors, chocolate and Green Berry which is definitely something we hadn’t been expecting. Given that we could only afford one flavor, we decided to go with Green Berry. To the right is a photo of the shake. The name is half correct in that this shake is ‘green‘ though how they had the gall to name anything about this flavor ‘berry‘ is beyond us. We thought about video taping and posting some of the horrified faces of our staffers as they tasted this shake, but Youtube already has that covered if you’d like to check it out. We briefly contemplated how the product pitch meeting for this shake went, and this is pretty much what we envisioned.
Man in Lab Coat: “Sir! We’ve come up with a shake that has the best nutrients and hunger blockers on the market! It’s sooooo freaking healthy!”
CEO: “That shake looks like vomit. What flavor is it?”
Man in Lab Coat: “Flavor?”
CEO: “Yes, what does it taste like?”
Man in Lab Coat: “Uh it tastes like we’ve liquefied 70 nutrients and crammed it down your throat.”
CEO: “Hmmm, Call it Green Berry and ship it!”
Update: Alright, as promised we did try the chocolate as well (someone sent us a free sample because we’re so poor) and it was better. This is where we’re going to get in trouble because a lot of people assumed that when we said in the comment section that “chocolate tastes better”; that we really liked it. This isn’t entirely the case. Their chocolate tastes better, but it’s certainly nowhere near the best we’ve tried. We still haven’t tasted the highly anticipated new flavor, but when your nutrient list is 74 ingredients long, you’re going to really have to work hard to cover up that vitamin taste…it didn’t go away even in the chocolate. If you’re going to try this shake though, we’d highly recommend the chocolate over the…other one. (I can’t even say it…the memories haunt me)
