EAS Myoplex Lite Chocolate Fudge Protein Shake

EAS Myoplex Lite Ready to Drink Protein Shake is described as, "a calorie friendly shake that helps to maintain lean muscle." The "Lite" version has the sweeteners sucralose (aka Splenda) and acesulfame K, to keep the sugar grams down. I received samples of the Chocolate Fudge variety to try out - well, mostly I wanted the husband to try it because he drinks protein shakes after he works out ... and he's not into products that use high intensity sweeteners, so I was really curious to see what his reaction would be.

NUTRITION FACTS
Serving Size: 8 ounces
Calories: 170
Total Fat: 2 grams, 3%
Saturated Fat: 0.5 grams, 3%
Sodium: 240 mg, 10%
Carbohydrates: 20 grams
Fiber: 5 grams, 20%
Sugar: 4 grams
Protein: 20 grams

Both he and I loved this flavor. It's not too sweet, and the consistency is like milk ... chocolate milk. There are no off-flavors, or anything to give away the fact that high-intensity sweeteners are used. I wouldn't have used the word "fudge" anywhere in the naming though, since that conjures up images of a thick, intensely sweet shake - which this is not. Still, I don't want to take away from the fact that this is one tasty, ready to drink, protein-packed punch.

Each 8 ounce serving provides 170 calories, 2 grams of total fat, of which 0.5 grams is saturated (both 3% of the daily value), 5 grams of fiber (20% of the DV), 4 grams of sugars and 20 grams of protein.

The ingredients list includes milk protein concentrate as the protein source. As I mentioned before, I received samples of EAS Myople Lite Ready to Drink Protein Shake, but I saw them at my local grocery store, a 4-pack for $7.29! That's very expensive and probably that price is the only thing that would make me think twice about buying these in the future. I hope there are coupons somewhere, and that they regularly go on sale.
