Chocolate Brownie

I was a bit disappointed when I opened the brownie as it didn’t look like a nice fudgy brownie. Nevertheless, I tucked in and well, the taste reflected the brownie’s appearance. It wasn’t awful but it wasn’t the brownie I expected. The texture was slightly firmer than I expected and the taste was sweet but not particularly chocolatey. After eating half, I decide to pop the other half in the microwave and well, the brownie improved significantly. The brownie was so much nicer heated for a few seconds in the microwave! I think that if I bought these in the future, I would save them for an occasion where I have access to a microwave.

Strawberry and White Chocolate Chip Cookie

The cookie has a very strong and overpowering taste of strawberry which wasn’t to my liking. I have heard very different options of this cookie – people either loved it or hated it. The texture of the cookie was perfect and not dry like other protein cookies I have tried. I liked the addition of the white chocolate chips but for me, the artificial taste of strawberry was just too prominent and I feel the cookie would have been perfect if this hadn’t been the case.

Cookies and Cream Oat Bake

Just like the cookie, the oat bake again had a very strong flavour of cookie and cream. The texture was firm and quite dense. I again found the oat bake tasted too sweet and artifical for my liking.

Caramel Crisp Bar

This bar was definitely my favourite. Unlike other protein bars, it wasn’t jaw aching to eat. The crispies in the bar gave a satisfying crunch and the ratio of chocolate to caramel was spot on. I would definitely recommend the caramel crisp bar! When heated in the microwave, the chocolate and caramel is simply incredible.

Strawberry Protein Milkshake

I am always a bit apprehensive about these already protein drinks but I really enjoyed the strawberry protein milkshake. It’s not a thick milkshake like you’d get in a burger joint such as Byron but I wouldn’t want it to be as they make me feel sluggish and bloated. The milkshake reminds me of strawberry Nesquik and it is sweet but not too overpowering.

Rating 8/10

Protein Coffee

I’ve never tried protein coffee before so I was quite interested to try this. It sort of reminded me of the cold double shot Starbucks coffees you can buy from the supermarket which I love. I thought it was slightly too sweet but the macros are amazing and I don’t think the sweetness would put me off trying it again in the future.

Design

The earphones are light. The rose gold against the white makes them look smart and slick. Sometimes rose gold has a tendency to look tacky and cheap but this was not the case here. The earphones have controls to adjust the volume, start/pause songs and skip songs.

 

Bluetooth Setup

I have to admit, I didn’t manage to pair the earphones with my phone straight away but once you’ve done it, it’s easy. I was impressed at how clear the instructions were.

 

Sound Performance

I usually wear my Beats headphones so I was unsure as to how the earphones would compare. To my surprise, they stood up to the battle well and I think the bass may actually be better! I have been wearing my earphones at work as when trying to code as I find it helps me to get into my bubble and removes distractions from people chatting around me. I’m not sure if these earphones are marketed as being noise-cancelling but when my manager ask if I wanted a coffee, he had to come and tap my shoulder!

 

Verdict

I really enjoyed trying the Sudio earphones and I’m going to continue using them. I love the design and the rose gold colour. The only improvement that I think could be made would be to make the earphones adjustable to make them tighter as this would be useful when in the gym.

Overall rating 9/10
