Trutein Cinnabun Protein Powder: The 8th Wonder of the World

Back in the day, I was a protein powder fiend.

4 to 6 scoops was the norm, and I went through the stuff like the secret of life was at the bottom of those tubs.

And the worst part (aside from going BFP – broke from powder) was that I didn’t even like the taste after awhile. I drank it as fast as possible before my brain realized what sick things I was putting into my body and sent the eject signal to my stomach.

Long story short: low quality protein powder that tastes like dragon butt sucks, and I love y’all too much to not show you an alternative – high quality protein powder that tastes like hope, dreams, sunshine…and Cinnabons.

Enter Trutein.

If I told you how many times I’ve had the urge to stick several cinnamon rolls into the blender and create the world’s most delicious shake, you all would pool your resources to buy a spaceship and send me far away from normal people like yourselves, but now thanks to Trutein I can stay here on Earth and write fitness stuff – win!

Here’s what I like about it:

1) Taste – seriously…it tastes like a liquid cinnamon roll. A LIQUID CINNAMON ROLL! I can quit life now.

2) Triple  protein blend – casein (slower digesting), whey (faster digesting) and egg protein, making it a shake that you can have pre-workout, post-workout, breakfast, or post-sex if your sessions are that intense.

3) No proprietary blends – you know exactly how much of each protein source you’re getting.

4) Price – you get all of the above awesomeness for a low price, which says a lot with protein powders constantly jumping in price. Here is the best price I’ve found on the net and where I ended up ordering from as well:

5) Macros –

    Damn Rog you must be a beast to finish that shake in one sitting man. And you’ve wasted some precious powder by flicking it off your knuckle man.

    Does it give you the infamous protein fart that might be able to mutate a frog if it smelt it?

    Good review and glad to see you up and kicking once again broham.

      I didn’t even consider the economic impact that power knuckle flicking would have in the long run – I probably flick off at least 2-3 scoops per bottle!

      No farts as of yet, but if they do end up giving me gas, those in my presence should be so privileged as to get to smell Cinnabun powder without paying.

    Where was this post two days ago! Just ordered two tubs of protein powder…now I’m gonna have to wait a few months to try this!

    Yes! I had been eyeballing this exact brand and flavor, but I’ve been extremely hesitant to pick it up seeing as I’ve been burned by a few powders in the past. The Cytosport vanilla whey from Costco was actually pretty good (avoid the chocolate though – we hates it), but vanilla is still vanilla at the end of the day, and sometimes you’ve gotta have some variety. Plus, I’d reeeeally like to make some tasty cinnabun flavored oatmeal. Yes, I know they sell those flavored insta-packs loaded with sugar, and IIFYM and all of that, but if I do that there’s no more room in my “discretionary budget” for ice cream, and that’s just no good.

    Fingers crossed.

      Haha, good points all around!

      Uncross those fingers, good sir, for if they remain cross you shall not be able to shake your shaker cup vigorously with delight in order to mix the Cinnabun life essence!

    I am definitely ordering some of this, as it’s only $10 more than the stuff I usually get and my stuff doesn’t tell you how much casein is in it. Those bastards.

    I looked everywhere for the Cinnabon flavor on this website and I can’t find it!! Is it discontinued?!
