I may try it.  I like the other Chike flavors. 

How does it compare taste-wise to Syntrax Nectar cappuccino, do you know?

I've never tried Syntrax Nectar capuccino. I have tried Pro-Joe and I like it more than that. I'm still deciding who wins between Click and Chike although I use Click in a completely different way.

Well, I prefer the Syntrax to Click.  I went ahead and ordered a sample of the Chike.  Want me to send you a packet of the Syntrax cappuccino to try?

I like both but I like the Chike better. Chike has a more vanilla capp taste than Nectar... Just my opinion tho

 what about compared to click? i'm not a click fan but finding one already made would be slightly easier than making my own with vanilla latte mix and vanilla protein

It's hard for me to compare because 9 times out of 10 I use Click for a Click Frappe.

I am going to TRY Chike in a Frappe but I have a feeling it won't be the same. Click adds something (for the life of me I cannot figure out WHAT) that makes Frappes super smooth and creamy. I have been unable to replicate the texture of a Click Frappe with anything else.

So for me comparing the two would be apples and oranges at this point. But I'll report back once I have tried the Chike in a Frappe.

there's just something about the click taste i don't like. i've tried it iced, hot, and as a frappe and have officially given up

Click has more bite if that makes sense. Chike is a smoother texture and doesn't seem to be as strong.

Kelly, I tried to find it to order a sample. Do you know how I would order a sample?

On the Chike website, chikenutrition.com, I saw a thing to click on from the front page.

You don't order a sample so much as you just order one packet. They only come in packets. They are a little cheaper when you buy in bulk but it's $2 for a packet and I'd say that's not bad if it saves you from dropping big bucks on lots of packets. :)

I prefer Chike to the Click brand, mostly because (I brought this up on another post) my Click arrived and protein is NOT listed as one of the ingredients. I am planning on calling them and asking what's up with the ingredients so we shall see.

Protein is listed as an ingredient.

Click contains calcium caseinate, a protein derived from milk. It is slower absorbing than whey protein. But protein is listed on the ingredients in Click. You just have to know what it's called.

In general any ingredient ending in "ein" is some sort of protein. So casein, lutein, pro-tein. It can be confusing but knowing what suffixes and prefixes related to nutrients are is a whole science unto itself.

That was exactly my point, calcium caeinate IS a protein derived from milk, so why not just drink the glass of fat free milk?

I don't have a package of Click here to look at but I assume the label shown on their website is the same label that is on the package.  If so, it does list protein as one of the ingredients.  The first ingredient in the list is calcium caseinate, which is a form of protein that comes from milk.

Thanks for the review Nik. I'm going to order some and you saying it blends easily is key to me wanting to try it. Do you think it would go well with milk? I like creamy shakes too.
