Sign I Am Not a Normal Person #1,200:

I don’t drink protein powder.

 I eat it.

cookies 'n' creme proats (protein oats) w. apricots, blueberries, apples, crumbled peanut butter toast crunch, sprinkles, and cocoa

So maybe I wasn’t the best person to review the newest flavor of Plant Fusion.But then again, when you see what I’ve done with it, maybe I was. :)

ice cream inspired protein powder calls for strawberry 'sauce,' sprinkles, and chocolate (covered amaranth)

Even though I must confess that I get unnaturally perturbed when companies misspell words on purpose, I forgave Plant Fusion for their use of creme instead of cream, simply because they added the French accent.*

*And I don’t know enough French to know whether it is spelled correctly or not.

we can discuss appropriate uses of apostrophes at a later date.

And gosh darn it, if you can make a protein powder that tastes all at once like everyone’s favorite mass-produced twist-and-lick cookie and the best kind of cookies and cream ice creamwhere there are not only huge chunks of cookie, but also cookie crumblies floating throughout–well, my Plant Fusion-obsessed heart stomach heart will forgive you a lot.

I mean, this beautiful bowl of goop was like eating a s’more with peanut butter Oreos in lieu of Hershey’s bars and cookies n’ creme ice cream in place of the marshmallows.

So, maybe I can’t judge how it tastes in a shake or a smoothie, but I can tell you it is dessert-worthy* delicious.

*Or any time of day-worthy…

As for the more traditional uses of protein powder, I’ll leave the testing of that up to y’all.
