I'll tell you something and you're not going to like it, Carlos. I don't like bananas. I know you're crazy about them joints but me, man, I don't like them. You just handed me this drink and I don't know man, I don't think I can handle it. I'm not allergic or anything but I just don't like them. You don't have anything else to drink? Man. You know what, dude? I'll do it.

Carlos, I might owe you an apology. Maybe you know me better than I thought. Maybe you know me better than I know myself because this drink isn't bad and even though there is a hint of banana, I'm not about to spike it in your living room like you would a controller when I whoop you in Halo. This is mostly strawberry, which everyone loves and you can't taste the coconut too much and this has been sitting there for a while. That's when coconut blows is when it's warm. The banana, yeah, it's in there but I'm not eating a banana and this is accompanied by better, stronger fruits.

Dude, alright. That grief I gave you earlier, you didn't deserve it. I had a bad day. I ate a bad breakfast burrito and it disagreed with me. I'm alright now, man. Sorry. Now grab that controller. I'm'a whoop you!

Core Power Natural High Protein Milkshake Strawberry Banana

Core Power Natural High Protein Milkshake Strawberry Banana

Seeing as Derek is vegan and Mike doesn’t believe in strenuous activity I have become the de facto protein shake reviewer here at the offices of Thirsty Dudes. Of course by offices I mean my computer room in my apartment, Mike’s desk at his day job and wherever it is what Derek does his writing. We live the glamorous lives of the beverage reviewer and there is no one that can take that away from us.

I got done with my work for the day early, but no one else was around, so I decided to go on a bike ride. I meant to just ride around for an hour or so, and maybe check out some neighborhoods that I’ve never been to around my house. That led to a much longer ride that took me over nearly 30 miles of road. Did I mention it was ridiculously hot and humid as well? I don’t know if I have ever sweat so much in my life. I was literally able to ring sweat out of my clothes after I got home. After bringing my bike into the house I dragged myself to the kitchen and grabbed this out of the fridge, because of course what you want when you’re ridiculously dehydrated and are so tired that you don’t think you’ll be able to move much more is a nice milkshake that has bananas in it aka the worst fruit ever.

The protein gods were shining down upon me as this is the first beverage that I have ever had that contains banana that didn’t taste exactly like the grossest of all fruit. This has more of a creamy base with a nice strawberry flavor added to it. It’s light in flavor, but for some reason the banana flavor is hardly there. I certainly wish it would have been just strawberry in flavor, but I can’t complain about the minimum banana that I was presented with. It’s also sweetened with stevia, so perhaps it was that natural zero calorie sweetener that hid the banana for me. It also didn’t end up tasting very diet at all. This was actually down right enjoyable for a protein drink. I’m sure I would have liked it even more had I had more moisture in my body.

Of course as soon as I was done with this I downed a gigantic coconut water to rehydrate. It took about a half hour after that for my muscles to work again and then I was ready for new adventures.

Mix 1 Nutritional Shake Strawberry Banana

Mix 1 Nutritional Shake Strawberry Banana

I have one simple request for the humans who populate this planet: Can we please just give up on bananas? Leave them to the chimps. We evolved from them; so let’s get away from their favorite food as well. I know people are going to think it’s a phallic thing, or that I have a problem with the texture, but those people are wrong. I’ll eat cucumbers like a hand fruit all day long, and I have no problem with mushy foods. The way I incompetently make oatmeal makes it about the same consistency as them. The sad truth that people just need to accept is that bananas just taste disgusting. I don’t get even a millisecond of enjoyment out of them. They even smell gross, like they are always in a state of decomposition. I know the potassium they provide is essential, but let’s be honest science has progressed enough that we can get that vitamin in pill form without the grozz taste.

Mix 1 has joined the bastard fruit with a delicious one as is common in our culture. Strawberries are delicious, so of course people will use them to try and disguise the grossness of the banana, it’s just too bad it never works and the precious strawberries are just wasted. This drink really has two strikes against it before I even tried it. Number one: it’s a protein drink, which generally don’t fare to well for the palate. I’ve already spent too much time on issue number two.

Upon trying this it was confirmed that I am not a fan. There is a decent strawberry flavor, and it has a nice sweetness. If it were just that then I think this would have been a pretty good protein shake, but that banana, that damn banana ruins it all. If you are a savage who has no taste buds and eat this green to yellow to brown fruit you just might enjoy this. Me, I’ll be avoiding it.

If you ask any of the three Thirsty Dudes, strawberries are awesome. If you inquire again with the same three dudes they will tell you that bananas are garbage. It’s really weird the first time you approach them, no matter what you ask they reply about strawberries, the second about bananas. Someone could ask, “Do you know what time it is?” and they would be told, “Strawberries are awesome.” Science has finally broken their brains. So much in fact they have started writing in the third person.

This drink is supposed to taste like strawberry banana, but in reality tastes more like an apple drink with a bit of banana flavoring in it, and even less strawberry. I was able to drink more of it than any other banana-based drink I’ve ever tried, but it still wasn’t great. It was also lightly carbonated, even though sparkling water is not listed in the ingredients or anywhere on the can. I found that odd.

In the end this was a bit better than I expected, but I still found it not very appealing. If it had a real banana flavor I would have given it higher marks for all you savages out there who like that garbage fruit, but as it stands I just can’t do it.

When I was a kid, gum was awesome and it only got better. Sure, you had Trident and stuff, but that was adult gum. There was Bubblicious, which is way too much gum for one person to chew but hey, if they give it to you like that, you've got to eat it like that. I remember Dr. Pepper and maybe 7-Up making gum that was the size of Bubblicious and had a pop flavored goo inside. That was great. There was that gum, I think it was Cinnaburst, which you could eat with the wrapper. That was fun if it was a gimmick. Oh man, Big League Chew, specifically grape, was phenomenal. Then there was Fruit Stripe gum...Fruit Stripe gum sucks now and it has always sucked and will always suck. Five minutes of mediocre flavor at best and then it tastes like you were just chewing on unflavored gum. Not to mention that the longer you chewed it, the more it just fell apart in your mouth like it was never gum to begin with. Awful, just plain awful.

This drink tastes like if you bought one of those big packs of gum, took out all the strawberry and banana flavored gum, and ate them at the same time. It's not good. It tastes like the worst gum on the market. Is it still on the market? Who cares? It blows, and not the way good gum should.
