This PEScience Chocolate Peanut Butter Select Protein Powder Review will tell you everything you need to know about this product.
If you follow me on any sort of social media, you know I’m a huge PEScience fan. No, I’m not yet sponsored by them but I can’t say no to a high-quality product. This brand was the first that I decided to review because I wanted to be sure that you all were reaching for my favorite products first and wasting no time on the chalky, bland ones out there.
Why waste money, macros and time sifting through the lackluster protein powders when you could select the best?
Taste: 9/10. No question, you guys know how much I love peanut butter. So the hype for this flavor was real. PEScience did not disappoint. It’s balanced between peanut butter and chocolate flavors. Very sweet with a cocoa undertone from the chocolate. I’m a little bias and would prefer a slightly more pronounced peanut butter flavor.
Flavor Accuracy: 8/10. I love this flavor! It’s absolutely chocolatey peanut butter, even when just mixed in with some almond milk. I wouldn’t really call it a peanut butter cup (for some reason that conjures up a creamier, butterier flavor in my mind. Call me crazy!) but it’s absolutely chocolate peanut butter.
Texture: 9/10. As far as mixability, it does require a bit of time to get all the clumps out, but that’s to be expected with any protein powder. Once it’s mixed, it’s smooth and thick. This protein is a bit thicker than a whey protein isolate – but I prefer my shakes thicker. If you prefer shakes thinner, then I suggest going for whey protein isolate over this milk protein blend.

What’s the benefit of a protein blend like PEScience uses? This excerpt from Pescience.com helps explain.
“Milk Protein Isolate is composed of 80% casein and 20% whey, and recent research shows that a blend of whey and casein is superior to whey alone for muscle growth. So with Milk Protein Isolate, you get the optimal muscle-stimulating protein blend, a low fat and carbohydrate content, and intact biological peptides for muscle growth and health.”
