Premier Protein Review and Giveaway!

As some of you know, I have been on the search for the perfect post run recovery drink. I love my chocolate milk but feel like I need a little more after those long marathon training runs. So when Premier Protein contacted me on twitter to see if I wanted some samples I didn't hesitate!




And when those samples came it was like Christmas!

It was wrapped up so pretty!!!

Inside was little bars and shakes of deliciousness!

Now I'm not saying they gave me tiny samples that were barely a serving. They gave me the full size! Full size bars and full size shakes! Wow! And they didn't just give me one of everything...they gave me TWO of everything!!! How great is that?! 

Here's what was included in my box:
  • 6 Premier Protein Bars: 2 bars in each flavor (Chocolate Peanut Butter, Double Chocolate Crunch, and Yogurt Peanut Butter Crunch)
  • 4 Premier Protein Shakes: 2 shakes in each flavor (Chocolate and Vanilla)
I'm not a huge fan of protein bars but these were actually pretty good! The calories were kind of high in my opinion until I looked at all the nutritional info. 30 GRAMS OF PROTEIN??? Whoa!!! I figured these would be a great pre-run option before a long run.

Here's the lowdown on each bar and what I thought. The Chocolate Peanut Butter was yummy! Kind of like a Reese's Peanut Butter Cup but so much healthier for you! These were my hubby's favorite of all the bars! 


Next is the Double Chocolate Crunch. I swear this one tasted just like a brownie...so good! My friend Stephanie even tasted this one and loved it! 


And this one was my all time favorite of the bars...Yogurt Peanut Butter Crunch! Of course it was also the highest in calories and fat...could be why I liked it so much lol! I didn't share my second one with anyone...I ate both of them!!! :-)


Look at all that yummy deliciousness!!!

Next up were the shakes. I of course saved these until after my long runs as a recovery drink. Keep in mind that all the protein shakes I've tried in the past I haven't liked. They either tasted bad or were too gritty. I am big on taste and texture. If it doesn't taste good then I'm not going to drink or eat it. If I don't like the texture...same thing. So I was pretty curious and skeptical about these shakes.

The first shake I tried was the Vanilla one. Here's the nutritional info:


Again...I love that there are 30 grams of protein! And I always need more sodium after a long run and this baby has 330mg! And the best part...there's only 1g of sugar!!! Yay!!!

As for the taste and texture....it was awesome!!! I loved it! It tasted like a vanilla milkshake!!! So good!



The chocolate was just as good as the vanilla one!!! I think I have found a winner folks!!! :-)

One of my favorite facts about Premier Protein: You can buy it in stores!!! I hate it when I find a product I like but it's only available online...because sometimes I just need to run to the store real quick to stock up! Premier Protein is sold in Costco and Sam's Club! I have also seen the Premier Protein bars in Walmart.

The Premier Protein shakes are definitely going to be my recovery shake for marathon training! I even bought a box of the chocolate ones from Sam's Club to stock up!


On a funny note...these samples were all so good that me and my hubby fought over who got to eat/drink them!!! :-)

So here's the good news!!! Premier Protein wants to give YOU a box of samples exactly like what I received! And even better.....they are letting me giveaway FIVE!!!! Open to US residents only.

Enter away! Please make sure to be honest and follow all the requirements to enter...I DO moderate the entries and WILL remove your entry if you don't do what's required (sorry I have to say this but I've had some abuse of this in my past giveaways).
