Review: E- Hydrate protein on the go.

Review: E-Hydrate protein on the go.

I was thrilled when I was  contacted by Moms meet to do a review for a product for  E-hydrate.
E-hydrate offers natural nutrition through protein drinks and  kids'/adult hydration drink mixes. Their mission is to provide  natural nutritious products that taste great with less sugar. This product is  available for purchase at Target.

The product which I was contacted to try was the E-hydrate natural protein on the go.  

My package included:

-1 chocolate natural protein on the go pouch
-1 vanilla natural protein on the go pouch
-1 kids cinnamon roll natural protein on the go pouch
-1 kids chocolate natural protein on the go pouch
-1 cool e-hydrate t-shirt with their logo
-1 instruction sheet on how to  prepare the on the go protein drink
- Adult/kids drink mixes were also included.

My first initial thoughts on this product...

 I liked how simple the packaging was. The protein is already prepared in the package.  It is easier to just grab it and not have to measure out the scoop or the amount of water/milk to add because the powder is already in and you just add water up to the fill line. All you do is twist off your cap, add water to the fill line and give it a nice shake.

This product is perfect to have an extra one in your gym locker for times when you're running on time and haven't prepared your shaker bottle. And for us women it would come in handy just having one available in our purse.  It also works when space is premium, like if you don't have storage on your bicycle you might just wrap it around the handle bar with a rubber brand.

 Also as mentioned previously, this product is available now at Target. - I really like that it is available at a store that I pretty much shop at on a regular basis. Not having to make a separate trip to a local health/fitness store definitely saves on time.  As far as flavors go, I really enjoyed the chocolate over the vanilla. My 5 year old actually enjoyed the cinnamon roll
flavor over the chocolate.

Would I recommend this product...

I would recommend this product if you are looking for a quick solution for your daily protein. 
When compared to other products I would say it is a little better than most low grade protein. With this product I did not notice any grainy texture. -And for most, this is definitely a plus. 

 What I didn't like about the product was how the Stevia left a very noticeable after taste. I've never been one to enjoy the after taste of certain sugars and that was one thing that really stood out to me. If you normally use this sugar you shouldn't have any issues with taste. 

 Now even though it was not grainy I did find it difficult to get all the clumps out.  Normally I (and anyone else that I know that is serious about fitness) use a blender bottle of some kind that aides with the mixing.  Also I noticed it was easier to use our water machine when pouring the water into the pouch.  
If you already have a particular protein you use as your go to, I'd say at least give this one a try. This way you can compare and see which works best for you. As  for me I'm sure I'll be sticking to my protein that I've been using for a while now. I'm still very happy that I was given this opportunity to try out this product. 

So if you are wanting a natural, quick solution for your daily protein I'd  say give this product a try.
