Protein Shake Samples...How do you get them?
So, as I read the posts and search the internet, I have found tons of shakes. Is there a way in which you have been able to acquire samples of the shakes without having to purchase them? Any websites in which you can sign up for them and/or protein bars?
Any suggestions would be a great help! Thanks!
Vitalady.com has tons of proteins that she sells in sample sizes. I got so many different ones in flavors I thought I'd like.
You can get sample packs at GNC and vitamin shoppe and they sell single bars and shakes at an affordable price so you're not spending toms of money on something you may not like! I know Chike gives samples and all you pay is $6 for the shipping. They send you a sample pack of all their flavors!
Your tastes will change post op and something you like now, you may not like after surgery! A lot of people will find a shake they love pre op so they spend the money on a big tub and they find they don't like it anymore after surgery! That's why the samples are great because you're able to try things that sound good without wasting money and protein!

Knock yourself out =) Hope this helps somehow.
Also, keep in mind that the way you make a protein shake really changes the way it tastes. You can mix most powders in either water or milk, and that makes a big difference. Most of the I like to put in the blender with a handful of ice, but some brands get way too foamy for me in the blender. Some you can just put in a glass and stir, but many brands will leave icky little clumps if you do that. You can do hot protein drinks, too, and you can add other stuff besides just protein and liquid.
