P28 Protein Bagel

I would like to start out by saying I am in love with the P28 Peanut Butters.  So, it was only natural that I would try their other products. Today my enormous order of P28 products bodybuilding.com was delivered.

Yeahhhh. So, I decided to try the bagels with the Signature Blend Peanut Butter. Here is what I found:

Taste

image (2)The bagels taste great.  The taste is similar to a regular honey wheat bread. However, they are a little chewy. In hindsight toasting the bagel would have made it easier to chew.  Hmm pretty sure those bagel places always toast them anyway right? In either case they are very tasty. However, I would note that one bagel made me SUPER full. In the future I might only eat half as a snack.

Nutrition

So I know what you are thinking. These bagels taste great and they are super filling so they must be high in carbs, contain fructose corn syrup and additives, right? NOPE!! Check out the nutritional facts below.

Overall

I am very excited to find bagels that are so healthy with such high protein content. Also these bagels are not only tasty but also very hearty.  They would be great to make sandwiches with. Definitely try them if you are a bagel lover or someone looking for other high protein foods. Nom Nom Nom

Cyclone Cup Vs Blender Bottle

img-pinkVersusblender

I was thrilled to receive my new CycloneCup from BodyBuilding.com yesterday. I have been using a blender bottle for the past year and was excited to hear about a new technology from a competitor. I have been hearing nothing but great things (and was happy to hear it comes in pink)! Anyway I immediately tried it out this morning with my pre-workout shake and this is what I found.

APPEARANCE

As I mentioned it comes in pink which I love! It does also come in other colors similar to blender’s shown below.

blend3-colorscolors

The CycloneCup is more vibrant in color then the blender bottle however. It also has a more sleek design. The bottle is tinted rather than clear which I find to be more attractive in contrast to the vibrant pink color (only pink  matters fellas). Also the light grey logo matches the lid on the cup. It’s very aesthetically pleasing.  I do like the look of the blender bottle also.  However in comparison the CycloneCup is more fashionable!!

FEATURES

The chart below shows that the features of each cup are similar. However,  the Cyclone Cup has a unique storage area on the bottom of the cup for powder product on the go Also, the blender bottle holds 28 oz versus the CyclonCup’s 16oz.

Cyclone Cup Blender Bottle
Container Size 16oz 28oz
BPA Free Yes Yes
Snap Lid Yes Yes
Blends Well Yes Yes
Store and Go Yes No


TECHNOLOGY

The CycloneCup uses a stationary technology versus blender’s free mixing agent.  Meaning the blender has a metal mixer that moves around the inside of the bottle while you shake it.  The blender bottle really makes a lot of noise when you do this. However the CycloneCup is pretty silent.  It also seems to mix the powder and water more thoroughly (No Clumps!!).

PRICE

The two seem close in price. The 28oz blender is selling for $12.99 and the CycloneCup is selling for $14.99. I am sure this varies depending on where you buy it.

OVERALL

The CycloneCup Mixes Better, it’s more fashionable and you can store your supplements and make your shake later. I would highly recommend buying one if you haven’t already!! I suggest Pink:-)

P28 Protein Peanut Butters

White Chocolate

white-chocPROS

This spread is a combination of peanuts, White Chocolate, Vanilla, and Whey Isolate Protein. In addition it’s also nutritious with 14 grams of Protein per serving.  In fact, a similar peanut butter by Peanut Butter & Co.’s only has 6g of protein. As a result many groups looking for other sources of protein to build muscle mass such as body builders, vegetarians and athletes can benefit from this product. As for the taste, it is deliciously SWEET. For those with a sweet tooth, you will fall in love with this peanut butter!

CONS

If you are not a fan of very sweet treats this peanut butter may not be for you. Also, the price is a little higher than most.  The white chocolate peanut butter runs $11.99 a jar compared to similar tasting products such as Peanut Butter and Co. at $4.87. However, this product does contain many additional ingredients (mainly whey protein) which seem to warrant a higher price.

Overall this is a great tasting peanut butter which I would recommend to those who have a sweet tooth or are looking for other sources of protein. Want to purchase this product? Visit P28 Foods.
