I received a sample of the Fit N Full Protein Shake in the flavor Cookies n Cream as part of a Voxbox. I mixed it with water and drank as my lunch one day. It kept me full for a full 5 hours which was great! Down side was it only had 14g of Protein and the Cookies n Cream flavor was not very good-very grainy. I did pick up their vanilla flavor to try and the price was not too bad- on the same level as many other protein powders.

I was one of the lucky recipients of the #GoVoxBox and received this product complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes. I love making smoothies in the morning but I find that they don't always fill me up. This morning I made the French Vanilla mix with some almond milk and a few strawberries. The mix did not clump up at all in the blender, but I am looking forward to trying it with the Jaxx cup. From the first sip, I was impressed by the silky delicious taste. Usually I am pretty hungry in the morning when I first wake up, but after just a few sips of this drink I was content. I drank the whole thing over the course of an hour, and when lunch rolled around a couple hours later, I was still full. Instead of being really hungry around lunch time (like usual) I just got a salad and I was perfectly happy. Having this drink in the morning made my whole day better because not only was it incredibly yummy to drink, but it curbed my morning hunger and prevented me from overeating at lunch. Most importantly, I felt good after drinking it. **Update! I tried to purchase my own #NextStep shake online and found that my coupon did not work!!! I called customer support and after being on the phone for almost 10 minutes I was helped by Reese, who was incredibly nice and patient. She was able to help me use my coupon and she said she wasn't sure either why it wasn't working for me online. Disappointed that it was so difficult to use the coupon, but speaking to someone in customer service who was so kind really made my day.

This is my favorite product out of my new GoVoxBox! They sent 3 packets of the protein shake in different flavors along with an adorable shaker. I had the chocolate shake for lunch today and I swear it tasted just like Yoohoo! I consider myself sort of a health guru so of course I checked the ingredients and nutritional information on the package. This product is only 140 calories and is sweetened with stevia extract! Wow! They read my mind! I’ve been looking for a health shake that didn’t contain artifical sweeteners for a long time with no luck. This selling point was a HUGE plus for me. Also, the package directions say to mix the powder with water. I normally mix protein powders with unsweetened almond milk because mixing with water usually doesn’t taste very good, but I followed the instructions. I was very surprised! It tasted like it was mixed with milk! This is great because you don’t have to worry about the extra calories from the milk or the extra expense. So, since this was such a tasty product with no obvious cons, I figured it was probably very expensive. I looked it up online and it’s the cheapest protein powder I’ve ever found! I will be ordering more of this very soon, especially since they added in a $5 off coupon! Disclaimer: I received these products complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes.

I really like that you can be very flexible with how you prepare the shakes. I received three varieties from influenster and was pretty pleased with them. I am very active and I like to have protein shakes after I workout. But I think that this alone does not work as a good meal for after a long workout. The first one I had just didn't fill me up or let me feel like I had all the nutrients I need. So the second time I tried (with the vanilla) I added a banana to the post-workout meal and was much more satisfied. I found that the chocolate one was a little to rich for my taste when mixed with water but when I added silk vanilla to it, it was much creamier. I am a chocolate lover but it was just that artificial chocolate taste that I didn't like. I tried the berry one in a smoothie with fresh berries, banana and silk milk and it was delicious, I highly recommend it! I will say, I did not try the shakes as simply a breakfast because I always workout in the mornings so breakfast almost always comes after a workout. I can't finish this post which out saying that the shaker is amazing. I have three shakers, one that has a top that is so hard to open it is a workout in itself, another that is all right but leaks and now this one. I love that it is easy to open, the right size and very easy to clean. If this was just a post about the shaker it would receive an A+++.

First I would like to say that I received the Jaxx Next Step Shaker, and three protein shakes Mixed berries, French vanilla, and Swiss chocolate complimentary for testing and honest reviews from Influenster. I think that considering taste alone that these protein shakes really pack more of a punch than a lot of others that I have tried. They are pretty true to the flavors that they are supposed to be which is something that anyone who drinks protein shakes can really appreciate because there are brands that I have tried that are for lack of other way to describe just utterly disgusting. My favorite surprisingly was the Mixed Berries I have always had a hard time with any of the fruit shakes but this one is on a level all it own! With the good also comes the not so good, while the flavors here are far superior the texture is lacking. I thought that they were very thick and clumpy at times no matter how well I would shake them in the Jaxx shaker. I finally would just put them in my stand mixer and add some ice even though the package does not call for use of ice, its just my preferred way of drinking them and then found them much more pleasant to drink. The addition of the ice and blending them gave a much smoothr more enjoyable texture. So would I recommend these to others? Yes!

I actually enjoyed this much more than I though I would. I normally don't like any kind of protein shake because of the powdery taste, even if it's not gritty, it still has that taste. This one still did, but not nearly as bad as any other ones I've tried, which to me is very impressive given that it is a powder. I have tried the Vanilla and Swiss Chocolate ones so far and I enjoyed both of them, I still have yet to try the Fresh Berries. The GoVoxBox also sent me $5 off another one but I don't know if I would want to use it because the products are rather expensive in my opinion, 14 packs for $24.99, they are on sale right now for $18.74, but I don't have that kind of money to spend on protein, I am aware that it is relatively cheap compared to other proteins, but it's probably just not something that I would spend that kind of money on, but I'm sure that would be a great deal for many other people. Maybe if they sold individual packets I would be more inclined to cash in the $5 off but I'm not complaining because I got sent 3 which is plenty. :) The Vitamin Shoppe does have one other Next Step protein that is 7 ounces of powder for $8.99, on sale right now for $5.99, but it is "Full Fiber" flavored and I personally do not want to drink just fiber. Anywho, I would definitely recommend this product to people who regularly drink protein shakes.

I love these shakes! The Swiss chocolate is delicious. I think they're fairly priced. I often buy the big bottle of it so when I forget to pack a breakfast I can just put some powder in my shaker bottle and go!

I got 3 packets of TheVitaminShoppe’s Fit N Full Meal Replacement Shakes and a Jaxx Shaker Cup in my GoVoxBox. The Jaxx shaker holds 16 ounces and has a “X” shaped jack that helps mix the shakes as well as a handle to hold it. The Fit N Full Shakes come in French Vanilla, Swiss Chocolate, and Fresh Berry flavors. I mixed up the Swiss Chocolate shake first and it smelled way too sweet. I don’t like chocolate anyways, so I didn’t taste it. I mixed the French Vanilla with 8 ounces of water as the instructions say to do. I shook the bottle for about 20 seconds. The instructions also say to take 2 shakes a day for clinical dosage of Inulin from the Tonalin. Tonalin is an ingredient that has been clinically proven to burn the fat away and increase lean muscle when used with a diet and exercise routine. The shake kept me full for about 2 hours and are meant to be taken as a meal replacement. It kept my cravings away. It is powered by fiber and Tonalin CLA. I liked the French Vanilla flavor but it has too much sugar for a diabetic. I also received a $5 off coupon for my next TheVitaminShoppe purchase. . I WAS NOT COMPENSATED FOR THIS POST, HOWEVER I DID RECEIVE A SAMPLE FOR MY REVIEW. ALL OPINIONS ARE MY OWN AND NOT INFLUENCED IN ANY WAY.

I received the Swiss Chocolate, French Vanilla, and Fresh Berries protein shakes, along with the Jaxx Next Step cup, from influenster complementary to test out and give my honest opinion. I had the Swiss Chocolate one for breakfast, I mixed it with milk instead of the suggested water, and it was really good! It put me in the mind of cold hot chocolate, just needed the marshmallows! I used it along with the Jaxx cup (Which I ADORE!!) and it still had little undissolved bits in it but there were no big clumps and if you let it sit for a few minutes the undissolved parts do dissolve on their own. Overall I like it and look forward to trying the other flavors. So far the chocolate is better than any of the chocolate Slim Fast or Atkins shakes I've had in the past. I had the shake around 10:20 this morning and 2 hours later I still feel full.

I received three sample of the protein shake (berries, swiss chocolate, and vanilla) in the #GoVoxBox. This was the first time I'd ever tried protein shakes so I was a little nervous but I actually kinda liked them! I tried the chocolate first and enjoyed it, though I would have liked it if it were a bit sweeter. I made the berries next but instead of mixing it with just water in the bottle, I threw it in my blender with some real berries, almond milk, and ice to get kind of a smoothie and I definitely really loved it. Finally, I tried the vanilla and made it in the blender as well with almond milk, ice, and a bit of vanilla yogurt, and I enjoyed that too, and I definitely think these taste better as part of a bigger drink with more ingredients rather than just mixed only with water. All of the shakes made me feel full for a long time and gave me a lot more energy than I get out of my usual smoothies! As for the bottle that came with the #GoVoxBox, the first time I used it I thought I had the top on securely but it ended up spilling everywhere when I shook it and it took a bit to get the top on securely. It mixed well and looks good, but I have a blender bottle that I prefer much more.
