Please Note: These pictures are from over a year ago because I have had this post saved and ready to go for a while now. Of course, I read over and revised some things but this review was ready to go decades ago. Hence, the post title. It’s about darn time!
After seeing About Time Protein across many blogs, I decided to contact the company and, yes, being a poor college student I did ask to sample their product. The company immediately sent me a reply and were thrilled I wanted to try their product! I asked the company why About Time is different from other competitors and they informed me About Time Whey Protein:
- Uses natural ingredients and 100% Whey Protein Isolate
- Has NO artificial sweeteners, NO artificial flavors, and NO growth hormones (thankfully)
- Vegetarian-friendly (but not Vegan-friendly)
- Builds lean muscle, boosts metabolism, and allows you to recover quicker from a workout
- Low carb and High Protein with 24g – 31g of protein per serving!!!
About a week later, I received the package in the mail which included a single serve packet of Birthday Cake flavor (!!!), single serve packet of Vanilla flavor, and a To-Go bottle of Chocolate Peanut Butter!
Immediately, I wanted to make some oatmeal and try the birthday cake flavor because I’m a sucker for cake batter/funfetti/dough flavored things!
I topped the oatmeal off with some PB&Co Dark Chocolate Dreams and the whole thing came together like a cake with frosting! The birthday cake flavor turned out to be amazing and not over-powering/”fake”-flavored which turns me off to most protein supplements! I was happy to find there was no aftertaste inhaling every bit! The only down-side is the protein did not completely mix into my oatmeal which happens with some protein supplements. I might have added it too quickly, though, so I want to try this again in the future!
Next, I tried the To-Go Chocolate Peanut Butter bottle which is extremely convenient and offers 31g of protein/125 calories per bottle! I really like the stats and the convenience of these bottles! These are perfect for college students or those who find themselves crunched for time after workouts! I loved the peanut butter taste of this one! Really good!
The vanilla single serve packet I tried immediately after a workout and the vanilla flavor reminded me of a vanilla bean because it was a strong, but not too sweet, vanilla flavor!
- Flavors are subtle and not too overwhelming/artificial/fake
- High in protein/low in carbs
- Natural ingredients
- Protein powder does not mix thoroughly in hot things (this may be due to my impatience for letting things cool down)
About Whey Protein has new flavors (like Peanut Butter and Banana) and a new granola! There are so many different flavors and products available on their website!
