Mild Vanilla flavor shake mix.
 October 12, 2013
"I tried this shake mix for the first time this year 2013 and really liked the ingredients and the product works well with my body. I have reordered this product and will continue to use it to help me lose weight.
This product is not sweet; so if you want something that taste a little sweet, you may want to purchase a different mix."

Not Worth the Money
 October 10, 2013
"This tasted OKAY, but it was far too sweet for my tastes. I also could not taste the vanilla in this AT ALL. I should note that I do not mix this in to a shake but rather make no-bake protein bars and cookies with this.
And this IS MUCH cheaper to make yourself. I do just that all the time. I regularly buy the 3lb bag of hemp powder from Nutiva ($29.99), which has almost identical nutritional stats to this product but BETTER because it has 33% MORE protein per 1/4 c serving and flavor it up with some ginger and cinnamon and add stevia to taste later on when I use the dry mix. So for the same amount of protein (1 lb), you're paying 33% LESS ($10 as opposed to this product's $15.19). Per serving, the sugar in this is 7 g. 1 1/2 tsp of cane sugar has 6g of sugar. That amount of sugar is PENNIES, plus the small cost of dumping in some cinnamon (again, pennies). I'm not calculating in the vanilla since I couldn't taste it at all, but, even if you factor it in to the cost, it is STILL almost 33% (again with that 33%!) cheaper to make it yourself.
I have to address the Val person who called the other reviewer "snarky". This is a forum for REVIEWS which are SOLELY based on someone's own experience with the product and their OPINION of said product. I read nothing but an honest, personal viewpoint on that person's experience with this product -- straight forward, clear, succinct. Exactly what I want in a review. (I'm envious of short-winded people :) )
Also, regarding the "buy what you like" comment -- people are always trying NEW products so they don't KNOW if they like something. How can you if you haven't tried it yet? So, it's not always possible to "buy what you like". These reviews help us decide if these previously unused products are worth our money and may be something we WILL like."

GREAT TASTING
 May 6, 2013
"I love anything cinnamon but I do not like regular hemp milk. I was so happy when I tried this product because it tastes great and has wonderful health benefits. I have always eaten a lot of protein shakes and was looking for a whey alternative. I mix this with one cup of frozen fruit and 8 oz. of orange juice and blend.
REALLY GOOD !
I feel good after eating it.
I priced this out and it really is not cheaper to make yourself, contrary to the negative review. I do not know why they would be so snarky. Buy what you like, hello!"

Cinnamon Sugar Hemp Protein Powder
 April 27, 2012
"This wasn't so much "Vanilla spice" as Cinnamon Sugared Hemp Protein, which quite honestly, I could do myself for much cheaper. I was expecting the subtle sweet nuance of vanilla and perhaps some of the other warming spices like ginger, nutmeg, allspice and/or cloves. But, alas, all I could taste was cinnamon and sugar.
This is definitely more palatable than PLAIN hemp protein (though you can still definitely taste the hemp), but what wouldn't be with cinnamon and sugar added in? I'd pass on this if you're set on a vanilla flavored hemp protein or one with a multi-faceted spice profile."

Nice vanilla cinnamon flavor
 May 13, 2010
"This is a great quality organic hemp protein with a yummy cinnamon vanilla flavor. My only complaint (as with any hemp protein) is it does not dissolve in milk as well as whey protein."
