FINALS FRIDAY–Orgain Creamy Chocolate Fudge

Well this shake will definitely not be bought again!  I do remember as a coach that a bunch of my customers changed from Shakeology to Orgain and I’m a little bit surprised.  To me, the two are not comparable but obviously people believe they are.

  1. Nutrition (B-):  Dr. Laurie Brodsky gave this shake an B-.
  2. Cost (A):  This shake is one of the most reasonably priced shakes out there!  I bought it on Amazon and it was $18 for 10 servings.  That is only $1.80/serving and you can also get this shake much cheaper if you want a bigger tin.  Since I knew I was only drinking it for a week, I went for the smaller tin, but at Costco you can get 27 servings for $30.  That is an incredible price!!!
  3. Taste (C): I only had the chocolate but I did not like the taste of it at all.  It tasted way too malty for me.  A few times this week, I had no interest in finishing the shake and almost had to force myself to.
  4. Filling (B).  This shake was just average with filling me up.  Some days I was able to go a few hours before I was starving for lunch, but other days I did get very hungry very quickly.  I do think it is more filling than other store brand shakes I have tried, but it is definitely not as filling as shakes like Shakeology or Idlife.
  5. Energizing (B). Similar to how much this shake filled me, I felt that it was only average with respect to how much it energized me.  I did have an amazing week with the kids for spring break, but I definitely could have used some extra energy this week as all moms can understand!!
  6. Total Score (B).  This shake is pretty average on all counts.  Definitely a good option for a shake on a budget, but I am determined to find a shake that tastes much better, is more energizing, more filling and has better nutritional value.  I CANNOT wait for the shake for next week.  Cinnamon Crunch from Quest–it seriously tastes like Cinnamon Toast Crunch!!!
