Just two months after the initial Strawberry Lemon Bomb flavor was released (in the glorious Alpha EAA supplement, followed by several others), NutraBio has done it again:
Grape Berry Crush Flavors now at NutraBio!
In Spring of 2019, NutraBio launched their main three workout supplements (pre / intra / post) in a new flavor, Grape Berry Crush, and it’s only gotten better since then:
- NutraBio Pre Workout (Buy it now) (#1 rated pre workout – no ‘hardcore’ stimulants needed!)
- NutraBio Intra Blast (Buy it now) (muscle-building intra workout)
- NutraBio Reload (Buy it now) (post workout recovery, hydration, and creatine/betaine ergogenics)
- NutraBio Alpha EAA (Buy it now) (focus and feel-good intra workout — Alpha EAA Grape Berry Crush was later released on June 7, 2019)
- Pre EXTREME (Buy it now) (more aggressive pre workout with the above PRE formula but adds 4mg yohimbine and 15g high-quality Cyclic Dextrin carbs — released June 21, 2019)
- BCAA 5000 (Buy it now) (5g 2:1:1 ratio BCAAs — released June 28, 2019)
- EAA Pure (Full-Spectrum EAA, exclusive to local retailers only — released June 28, 2019)
This is an extremely sweet, candy grape style flavor system, with a dash of “berry” zing on the end. It follows the recent flavor releases of the wild Dragon Fruit Candy and the go-to Strawberry Lemon Bomb as linked above.
This one is truly for the oft-neglected class of grape-loving consumers. You can watch Mike’s launch day tasting review of it below:
But… is that pomegranate?!
Just like with Strawberry Lemon Bomb, where the lemon / lemonade portion is used alongside the citric + malic acids to cover up the fermented aminos, it seems like that’s what the berry part is doing here.
But — we think there might be something else going on here. Our take: it’s a dash of pomegranate helping out with the berry tones. NutraBio always tosses in just a dash of something extra in there, and a sliver of pomegranate flavor is our current bet. Regardless of what it is, it’s really good.
Grape supplement fans: The underserved customers?
It’s wild to think that a company as big as this one didn’t have a grape in their most popular line of supplements — although NutraBio BCAA 5000 has an excellent and very popular Grape flavor. That all finally changed, which should satisfy many of the old-school users who’ve felt neglected over time!
Taking a trip down memory lane, when the supplement industry was in its infancy, there were typically three most common flavors: fruit punch, orange, and grape. Blue raspberry often came next.
Along the way over the past decade, something has happened — grape products kind of disappeared! There are of course several of them out there, but they’re just not as prevalent as they once were. Those who love that grape candy flavor just aren’t served as much as they were in the past.
NutraBio CEO Mark Glazier isn’t one to leave anyone behind, so he set out to fix that. And teaming up with Michael Perez, the brand’s flavorist, they decided to do it their way — with some sweet and some kick.
So you get the sweet candy grape part, but then you get the “berry” part to mask any of the stimulants (in PRE) or the fermented aminos (in Intra Blast and Reload). But again, we also think that back-end berry part has some notes of pomegranate too.
Mike’s current NutraBio flavor stack
As mentioned at the end of the video, different supplements take to each flavor system differently. And for whatever reason, this is my current NutraBio pre/intra/post flavor stack (of course subject to change in the future):
- PRE / Pre EXTREME: Grape Berry Crush!
- Dragon Fruit Candy Intra Blast:
- Reload: Strawberry Lemon Bomb
No doubt, these are sweet flavors. If you need a bit more citrus kick, cherry limeade could be your option!
And of course, when it comes to NutraBio 100% Whey Protein Isolate, it’s still the Pancakes & Maple Syrup flavor from the Breakfast Series closely followed by Bourbon Banana Nut.
