Have you ever had a long history with a food? Well, the brand Orgain and I have had a long history, all the way back, and it started when I went to ShiftCon in 2015, three years ago. Orgain had a table there and I ended up loving their products and eventually me and my mom went there so often for snacks that we decided to buy them and eat them at home. Since then, Orgain has become one of our favorite brands. Orgain is a brand that makes protein powders and ready to drink shakes that also have a lot of protein in them. The Orgain shake that I am reviewing today, the vegan vanilla bean shake, has 16 grams of protein in it alone.
Speaking of ShiftCon it is in February this year and I am very excited to go. If you were not a reader of my blog when I went to ShiftCon the firs time, it was absolutely amazing. I met great people, learned a lot and even got a ton of amazing food products. They had this swap room, which I hope they have again, where at the end of the conference they gave their leftover product and you could take whatever you want. I’m not kidding I must have gotten my mom about THREE YEARS WORTH OF VITAMINS!!!
Organ makes a lot of products that are gluten free and plant based. We use their protein powder almost every morning for energy smoothies before school and work and we use the packaged vegan shakes when we are on the go and need to get somewhere. I want to eat the ready to go ones at home but mom does not permit that. She saves the packaged snacks for when we are out of the house.
The taste of this shake is amazing. You get the vanilla bean taste with a creamy texture you cannot resist. I gobble this shake up in thirty, maybe forty five seconds. Sometimes I just have this as a snack when I’m heading out somewhere and sometimes it is part of a larger meal like lunch on the go. Today I had it with crackers, hummus and carrots as an afternoon snack. But really I think this could go with almost anything morning, noon or night.
If you guys have not tried this yourself and gotten addicted to this brand already, try one shake or a smoothie wth the Orgain powder in it and you will have just bonded with something and the addiction network won’t even be able to help you. But it is definitely worth it! Give it a whirl and try it as a way for a good taste or for a protein boost to your day. My brother likes it as much as I do and he would eat these every day if my mom let him.

Are those crackers from Mary’s Gone Crackers? I like those too!

Thanks, Max! I’m always looking for new (and tasty!) ways to add protein to my diet.
You make them sound too good to even try to resist! And…I like the fact that no refrigeration is needed until after opened, so how handy is that!!? Hope you’ll review other flavors (like chocolate!) someday.

Chocolate is actually not my favorite flavor but I might consider reviewing it for other people!
