Why Impact Whey Protein?
Everyone knows I have a deep love for all things sweet… doughnuts, biscuits, cookies, cakes and tray bakes are the loves of my life (and Rob too obviously). So imagine my glee and excitement when I learnt that MyProtein brought out a SPECULOOS flavoured whey protein.
Ever had those ever so delicious spicy cinnamon-y caramel-y little bisucits served with a coffee? These are speculoos spice biscuits (or cookies) from Belgium.
Lotus Biscoff are (in my humble opinion) the market leader in the UK for the glorious speculoos biscuits. So of course in order to make this an absolutely fair test, review and comparison I bought an entirepacket, just to be sure.
Impact Whey from MyProtein has a really good macro profile, low in carbs and high in protein, which is perfect for me and my goals right now!
Verdict: Texture,Taste and Smell
As I’ve said before, sometimes these special flavours can be a bit of a miss – peanut butter cookie you broke my heart – so I proceed with trepidation.
I love me some proats, so obviously the first thing I did was try a scoop of the Speculoos in my morning oats. Oh and then have a bite of a Biscoff, cos you know, science.
First thoughts and feelings are positive, this whey smells sort of spicy and cinnamon-y so that’s a good start. And then the first spoonful reveals that this is a taste sensation. It’s sweet and it’s got that underlying tang of spice – not too strong but complementary to the sweet taste.
Does it taste like Biscoff? Not an exact match, but pretty close, and this whey definitely has a distinct speculoos flavour so it does as promised!
