NutraOne Protein Creations Feature Fanciful Flavors

If there is one thing we certainly love over here at PricePlow, it’s seeing new and delicious flavors for protein powder. Nothing is worse than cracking open the same bland tub of whey day after day until you can’t even stand the flavor. Today, we cover one that’s completely different.

NutraOne Protein Creations

NutraOne’s Protein Creations are like divine intervention from the Protein Gods. Get ready to feast!

The solution is here for those with a bit of a sweet tooth that want a killer tasting protein option, with a macronutrient profile that’s still clean. We’re talking about NutraOne’s Protein Creations.

If you’re ready for low-carb protein that still has crispy, crunchy “inclusions” inside like sprinkles, graham cracker gems, or even marshmallow bits inside, then this is one you’re not going to want to miss! These flavors are on point!

Protein Creations: Not your everyday protein powder

Yet flavor isn’t all we care about. We care about our macros, open labels, and no amino spiking. Thankfully, those problems are no issue at all for NutraOne and their Protein Creations.

The labels give you exactly how much protein comes from each source, a recent trend we love in the fight for transparency. Protein Creations use a blend of fast and slow absorbing proteins to give you the best of both worlds. Not only is the protein source open, but they even have the full amino acid profile right there on the label for you, so you know exactly how much of each amino acid you are getting in a full serving. This also shows us that they do not amino spike their products to pad up their protein amount by adding cheap filler.

NutraOne

Based out of Austin, TX, NutraOne has been big in the retail space but never on PricePlow — until now!

And despite the amazing taste, each serving only has 120 or 130 calories, depending on the flavor, and only 2g of sugar or less. For such a tasty product, especially one using whey concentrate, these are some seriously clean macros. And here’s the kicker: real cookie pieces, caramel, sprinkles, and graham crackers in their products! Yup, that’s right, we have crispity crunchety “inclusions” yet and only 2g of sugar.

Normally we talk about the ingredients next, but since these are so damn delicious, let’s focus on the flavors:

The Amazing Protein Creation Flavors

With a decadent array of unique flavor options, anybody’s sweet tooth is sure to be satisfied with one of these options, completely guilt-free. Since more flavors are surely to come, here’s our up-to-date flavor listing, and then we’ll describe the ones that are out as we write this:

NutraOne Protein Creations Birthday Cake

With real sprinkles added, Birthday Cake is one of the sweeter proteins you’ll ever have. This is the flavor for the big sweet tooth!

    At the time of writing, we’ve got seven awesome options here, with S’Mores being the newest delicious addition:

    • Birthday Cake

      Birthday Cake is well-known for being one of the sweetest protein flavor options out there, so this may be the go-to for our biggest sweet tooth followers out there. We love the inclusion of sprinkles in this to complete the theme.

    • Chocolate Caramel Peanut Candy Bar

      NutraOne Protein Powder

      What do you think they’re going for with this one?

      We expect this to taste and smell similar to a Snickers bar, which is what we think we’re seeing here given the tub’s color scheme. Certainly the real caramel is something we have not seen yet, so will be fun to try.

    • Chocolate Caramel Candy Bar

      Another one with real caramel inside it that we are excited for, taste may be based off the Caramello candy bar.

    • Cinnamon Square Cereal

      Definitely a fun flavor we have seen a bit of recently, which is similar to Cinnamon Toast Crunch, interesting to see how their take on it compares.

      In our first review (above) with the “lighter” / non-chocolate flavors, this was the clear winner. It has the cinnamon cereal chunks, which are a huge plus, but they’re not too sweet, for a total victory!

    • Graham Cracker Cereal

      A flavor that we have not seen done before, sound delicious and has real graham crackers (known as graham gems) inside. This may be based off the Golden Grahams cereal… but the truth is that this one’s just not as hot as the other two light flavors.

    • Chocolate Hazelnut Spread

      NutraOne Protein Creations Chocolate Hazelnut

      Chocolate Hazelnut has an incredible chocolate base, but we didn’t get too much hazelnut out of it!

      Now this one sounds absolutely phenomenal. Nutella is a favorite topping among a ton of people so we hope they have this flavor system down. Given the high fats and carbs and palatability, that spread is one of the most obesogenic foods on the planet, so if you can replace it with protein, you’re doing yourself a huge favor!

      In the review, it’s a good chocolate flavored base, but we didn’t get a ton of hazelnut flavor popping through. If you’re looking for a solid chocolate protein with just a hint of extra, this could be the one.

    • S’Mores

      Last but not least is their newest flavor, S’Mores. This is another flavor we don’t think we have seen done yet, but it certainly looks like it’ll be a hit.

      NutraOne Protein Creations S'Mores

      Realize that S’mores has a cinnamon graham twist inside… you don’t expect it, but it’s better that way!

      The trick here is to note that there are cinnamon graham cracker gems inside along with the marshmallow bits — two types of inclusions! It’s not what you totally expect, but it’s downright amazing. This is a must-try flavor!

    Now let’s get into the macros and protein blend here:

    Protein Creations: Nutrition Facts and Ingredients Used

    The macros will vary, but you’re typically looking at the following:

    • Calories: 120
    • Protein: 24-25g
    • Fat: 2g
    • Carbs: 3g
      • NutraOne Protein Creations Ingredients

        Take a look at that fully-disclosed protein blend and amino acid profile! NutraOne wasn’t afraid to add a ton of fun to these tubs!

        Sugar: 1-2g

    The biggest adjustment is that the flavors with peanut flour added will have 3g fat and about 130 calories… but sometimes also 25g protein!

    Chocolate Caramel Candy Bar also has 4g carbs and 2g sugars, so it’s definitely the “dirtiest” of the bunch, and that’s nothing compared to other proteins… many of which don’t even have inclusions!

    The Protein Blend

    Protein Creations feature the following:

    • 21.3g Whey Protein Concentrate (WPC-80 given the yields shown on the label)
    • 4.2g Whey Protein Isolate (WPI-90)
    • 4.1g Micellar Casein Protein

    This blend gives the “best of all worlds” between high quality whey protein, but some added micellar casein to add thickness and flavor without any noticeable grit. When we’re not chasing after single-carb isolates which are way thinner, we love blends like this. It’s a perfect mix, so long as you’re not lactose intolerant.

    The extra add-ons

    After the proteins come the extra ingredients, which vary by the flavor. As discussed above, NutraOne isn’t afraid to add inclusions like sprinkles, Graham Cookie Gems, caramel, a dash of extra sugar, or even molasses!

    The gum blend is a trifecta of gum acacia, guar gum, and xanthan gum.

    Protein Creations

    What NutraOne’s website’s image doesn’t show you are all the marshmallow bits inside this S’Mores flavor!!

    Finally, this is an acesulfame potassium (Ace-K) free protein powder — sucralose is the only artificial sweetener added in, and it’s last on the list! That’s the glory when you’re adding caramel, molasses, sprinkles, or whatever else it may be depending on the flavor!

    Protein Creations knock it out of the park

    We have some very unique flavors going on here that live up to the hype — and then some! The labelling and packaging on these tubs is beautiful, with a very appealing aesthetic to it, especially given the clear tubs showing that you’re getting something very interesting inside.

    While the initial prices seem higher for a protein, each tub is actually three pounds — not two — for a full 40 servings. So don’t be fooled by the look of the bottle, it’s not a 2lb tub. We hope to eventually bring the price down with a coupon or discount.

    But no doubt, you’re paying a premium for these ridiculous flavors and transparent dosages for your aminos with low sugar, both things we absolutely love here.

    Overall, Protein Creations are a serious contender in the protein market, and we’re excited to see what other delicious flavors they will pump out next. Add this to your list — the biggest question is what flavor to try! Right now we’re on the S’Mores and Cinnamon Cereal Squares train!
