    We got sent some of these to try at work, I wonder if anyone else has tried them?
    Their site says Waitrose are stocking them at the moment but when I did a search the nearest was 48 miles away and no option to buy online. Bit of a shame

    They're kind of a mix between a smoothie and a protein shake. I'm not usually one to have pre-prepped protein shakes but it was quite nice actually.

    They look like this:

    Just under 150 kcals in a little bottle
    20g protein
    12.5 carbs (most sugars)
    2g fat

    So a decent nutritional breakdown. Anyone else tried/seen these?

    Haven't tried it, looks okay though. Works out pretty cheap per g of protein with my discount. I'll give it a try.

    I can't find it (though tbh I'm not looking very hard since I doubt I'll try it anyway). How cheap is pretty cheap?

    This site lists a rsp of £1.79 for each bottle which contains 20g protein, so ~ 9p/g of protein. More expensive than decently priced protein powder and other food, but not bad for a ready made drink. I get discount at Waitrose (where it's sold) so I can get it for less than that.

    Whey to expensive for regular use but definitely looks like a good drink when out and about and thirsty. Have you guys tried that whey ice cream they released in H&B?

    Ah, that's a shame. H&B is a bit of a way out the way when the sun's out... Think I'd still prefer a 99, even if it's not so pretein-y. Never mind!

    Why?
    Upbeat is so unoriginal, and the packaging looks like they've tried too hard to make it 'child-friendly'

    Really? How many other high protein smoothies are there? And child friendly packaging is hardly exclusive to 'cheesy products on the Apprentice'.

    I know it would do so much better in a supermarket, how do these upbeat shakes compare to innocent smoothies as they are the same price.
