Odwalla Pumpkin Protein Drink Review


It’s fall and everyone here at Chew on That is loving it!  We’re especially loving the fact that pumpkin is popping up in our meals, our desserts, and even our drinks!  So, naturally, we jumped on the opportunity to try Odwalla’s Pumpkin Protein Drink.  Hear what we thought of it after the jump!

To introduce this drink, I’ll let the good people at Odwalla do the talking: “Sip a taste of the fall season and savor the comforting goodness of pumpkin.  A seasonal favorite, sure to be a sensation, Super Protein Pumpkin tastes like your favorite pie. And this smooth, creamy shake-up is dairy free!  “Soypercharged” with 18g of soy protein per serving, Super Protein Pumpkin is packed with crucial vitamins and minerals, such as Vitamins B6 and B12, Calcium, Potassium, and more.  What a delicious, nutritious way to satisfy your sweet tooth- a real slice of the holidays.”

Now here’s what WE thought of it!

Hillary “The Boss”: I’m a huge fan of anything pumpkin and I definitely loved this smoothie. It tasted great and I love the fact that it’s made with soy milk and packed with protein. I think it would make a great breakfast drink–  a delicious and nutritious way to start the day!  The only criticism I would have is that there seems to be a lot of sugar – if there was any way to cut that back, it would be perfect! Either way, I will be looking out for this seasonal drink in stores!

Dan “The Boyfriend”: This tasted just like liquid pumpkin pie!  It wasn’t too sweet, and it wasn’t chalky like I expected it to be.  I also expected it to be very thick, which it wasn’t; the thinner consistency made it very easy to drink.  I’m disappointed that this is only a seasonal flavor, because I’d like to have it on a regular basis!

Me: The first thing that came out of my mouth when I tried this drink was, “I want to put whipped cream on it!”  That’s because it tasted like dessert in a glass.  It sweet, but not too sweet, and was full of great fall flavors.  The more I drank it, the more I wanted- I practically neglected the rest of my lunch!  It tasted so good that I would have never thought it was full of soy protein.  I look forward to having another one of these soon!

Chris “The Salesman”: The aroma is great- smells fresh and almost like an “orange whip” which is kind surprising because it’s PUMPKIN protein.  Served right out of the refrigerator seems like the way to go. It was cool, light in taste (light pumpkin flavor) and easy to drink. I was concerned that it might be a “thick” liquid and “heavy” flavor. Wasn’t at all. Very good, would definitely look for in the stores. Can’t wait to tell my teenage vegetarian daughter – she’ll love it!

Allison “The Editor”:
The Pumpkin Protein Drink was great.  I liked it after the first sip, but the more you drank, the better it tasted. It was smooth, creamy and, of course, pumpkin-y.  If you love pumpkin-flavored foods, especially pumpkin-spice lattes, then you’ll probably love this drink, too.  I like that the entire bottle provided me with 40 percent of my daily protein. As a vegetarian, this drink is a quick and easy option for getting protein.  This drink would also make a great post-workout recovery drink because it has sugar, protein and lots of vitamins and minerals.

Sophia “The Blogger”: While I don’t like pumpkin pie, pumpkin seeds, etc., I was pleasantly surprised by this Pumpkin Protein Drink. It was sweet and actually tasted like a liquid dessert. It would be perfect for a chilly fall day. I could tell that it was full of nutrients, plus some sugar. Since I don’t really like the taste of pumpkin, I appreciated the fact that this drink was a little sweeter than pumpkin probably is. It also had kind of a spice taste going on.  I wasn’t sure what ingredient that was, but it was definitely interesting. While I probably wouldn’t purchase this drink—just because of the fact that I don’t like pumpkin—I still really enjoyed drinking it!
