Yay! I am definitely putting out the money for the big tub of the cappuccino, I will be using that one long into maintenance!

I'm going to have to order a sample packet of that one. So far I've tried the chocolate truffle and the fuzzy navel (both were great). I have samples of the double stuffed cookie and the vanilla one to try. I'm going to buy a big tub of whichever one i like best - less carbs than the EAS shake and it's not soy!

Where are you ladies finding the packets? I can only find the huge tubs and I'd rather try first!

My local nutrition store sells the single serving Grab & Go packets of Syntrax Nectar individually, so I can buy the ones I want or try flavors out. Nashua Nutrition sells the boxes of Grab & Go packets but not mix & match.

I found this site that sells a sampler pack of 11 flavors:

Nashua sells individual packets. Go to the Nectar Grab N Go (12 servings) and look for the link in the text where it says TRY BEFORE YOU BUY Purchase a single-sized portion of this protein powder to try before buying the larger size. Simply click here and select the preferred flavor from the dropdown box.

I bought my individual packets at Nashua's site. Go to the page and then click "Try before you buy."

Got my shipment of Nashua last week (loving EVERYTHING), but I got a sample bar: Peanut butter pretzel bar Weight loss systems version and it was absolutely divine! Tastes like a payday candy bar BUT it was almost too divine...so I checked the nutrition online (after eating it completely of course):

Unfortunately it's not on plan. Too many carbs and not enough protein. So, don't order a box of them!

Nope. But I had to give them up when I went soy/gluten free for medical reasons.
I'm using Simply Chips now.
My go-to bar is Quest bars. I'm counting them as restricted due to calories, although some have low enough carb/fat counts to be non. I'm finding some are making me crave sweets more. I'll end up buying the ones I'm least fond of...on purpose!

Nashua sells a Health Smart brand protein puff that might be similar to the SW curls. I was going to order it and then dropped soy & gluten
