Luckily for me, the chocolate Rockin’ Protein shake is not nearly as egregious as the strawberry. No, it’s not great, but it’s tolerable.
Interestingly enough, while I found the strawberry shake to be too thick, I found the chocolate shake to not be thick enough…
Pouring this one out, it definitely looks like chocolate milk, which is ideal (although I’d personally prefer a thick chocolate shake).
However, the taste of this one is incredibly dull, and you would never mistake this for chocolate milk.
The three main ingredients in this protein shake are water, skim milk, and protein powder, and that’s exactly what this flavor tastes like. The cocoa is way too subtle, and the shake tastes as if you had mixed protein powder with water.
It’s missing that richness that makes chocolate milk so delicious, and you’d be better off just mixing chocolate protein powder with water for the same exact result.
I love that these Rockin’ Protein Builder shakes have 30 grams of protein, but that’s about all that I love.
The strawberry protein shake reminds me of Pepto, and the chocolate shake tastes just like a mixture of protein powder and water.
If I’m buying a pre-made protein shake, it’s absolutely for convenience, but it’s also for the unique and refreshing taste. If it tastes exactly the same as mixing protein powder with water, then what’s the point?
REVIEW: Rockin’ Protein Builder Shakes
While ready-to-drink shakes provide convenience, that's about where the positives end. In terms of flavor, you're better off just mixing protein powder with water and saving your money.
