Olympus Labs Superior Mocha Mermaid Mocha Chocolate Review
Mocha Cereal– Mocha is defined as a variant of coffee made of espresso and hot milk with added chocolate. Upon tasting the protein powder the coffee is present but faint. For those who are coffee lovers this may mark off a few points, but if you don’t care for coffee this will be pleasant. There is just enough chocolate and a ton of caramel to make this the correct correlating flavor. The little added krispies give this a nice texture and consistency when blended in a ninja to give it an enhanced sweetness. If you were to mix this in s regular shaker cup it would be like drinking the milk of General Mills Mocha Crunch Cereal.
Mixing 1 scoop of Superior Protein in 6-8zo of Almond/Cashew milk leaves no residue or clumps. I always mix mine in a ninja blender, but I have seen others use just a shaker bottle with ease. I had a friend who reviewed the product by mixing in a glass with a spoon and had no issues besides the little cereal pieces in the batter. Overall the powder is on the thicker side due to the 50/50 blend of whey and casein.
For those who like to mix protein into recipes and yogurt this is a fantastic protein to use. With the added casein the pudding-like consistency in greek yogurt is desirable. You may have to add a touch of water with greek yogurt as this does come out very thick. When used into recipes I found it did help the final product rise, but not to it’s full potential. Casein is thick and will be better used for binding agents like cheesecakes and bread/rice puddings. When making pancakes, muffins, brownies that require the product to peak a lighter protein (such as an isolate) will work best. Overall no issues as the flavor still shined when used to cook with.
** This is the highest calorie protein powder of all the flavors currently **
~13.7g Casein/WPC in a fully transparent label.

Overall for the unique ingredient profile and great taste this is a product that falls into the category of “You get what you pay for.” If you want a protein that has an edge over a saturated protein market this will be a product for you. I enjoyed OL’s flavoring on their protein even getting to beta-sample all their flavors before launch. This is also a protein that was ranked one of the best tasting blueberry and cereal flavored accorded to Stack3d.
