Before I get going, let me remind you that this is all based on my opinion. I tend to favor the sweeter, dessert-flavored protein powders, whereas Jo Anna likes the plain vanilla-based proteins that she can use in her fruit smoothies. That said, let’s dive into my thoughts on Ghost’s Whey X Oreo protein powder. At 150 calories, 2g Fat, 7g Carbs, and 25g of protein, it comes in a little heavier than Optimum Nutrition’s 100% Whey Gold Standard Vanilla Ice Cream (120 calories, 1g Fat, 4g Carbs, and 24g Protein), my go-to base for my fruit smoothies. Keep in mind that this is a specialty protein, part of the family of cookie flavors that Ghost came out with recently. Other flavors include Nutter Butter and Chips Ahoy. While the Nutter Butter is my favorite of the three, I am writing this about the Oreo flavor, as it is the most popular of the bunch.
The flavor is good. Don’t expect an all-out blast of Oreos in every bite, but it does have the flavor and even chunks of Oreos floating around in the mix. I’d give the flavor a 9 out of 10, falling short, only because I did expect the mega sweet oreo flavor, but that is understandable, this is a protein powder, not cookies. I typically mix this with a little bit of vanilla frozen yogurt and Vital Proteins Collagen Peptides Powder for some collagen and extra protein. I toss in a few ice cubes and blend it to my liking. This does make a great dessert replacement when you are craving something sweet.
I personally have not tried the Chips Ahoy version, but I am a HUGE (insert Donald Trump voice here) fan of the Nutter Butter version. The flavor is spectacular and once I run out of the Oreo protein powder, I’ll be sticking with the peanut buttery goodness of Nutter Butter. The Nutter Butter variety is 160 calories, 2.5g Fat, 8g Carbs, and 26g Protein per serving. All of the flavors are available on Amazon as of the time of posting.
