Optigura sent me two boxes of the Novo Nutrition Proteinos to try. I thought I would review them and let you all know if they are worth the hype!
I was surprised at how crisp and crunchy the proteinos are. When served with milk, I found the cereal didn’t go soggy as quickly as normal cereal which was a bonus for me!
The proteinos taste almost identical to normal cereal. I think there is a slight taste of protein in the aftertaste but it wouldn’t stop me from purchasing them in the future.
Chocolate Flavour – I personally think they could have had a stronger taste of chocolate but I enjoyed them nevertheless.
Honey and Vanilla Flavour – I think I preferred this flavour over chocolate as the honey flavour made the milk sweet and delicious.

Overall, I really enjoyed the proteinos and they have definitely satisfied my cereal cravings! The macros are amazing – 16.2g of protein per serving for cereal! I would have given the proteinos a higher rating if they were a more reasonable price as I think that £5.99 is expensive for a box of cereal.
Chocolate – 8/10
