OWYN - Only What You Need Review & Giveaway!

Disclaimer: I was not compensated for this post. I receive complimentary products for review purposes. All opinions are my own.

OWYN was inspired by the cultural movement to focus on the things that matter most. We believe this so strongly that our name OWYN stands for Only What You Need. For us, this philosophy is very simple: use nutritious, plant-based ingredients and leave out inflammatory animal products and allergens.

I received three cases of OWYN to review on my blog. I was sent Smooth Vanilla, Strawberry Banana and Dark Chocolate.

These OWYN protein drinks are really good my step dad loves them. We tried the smooth vanilla and they were really good coming from my step dad with only 20g of protein. He takes them for work and it's even great to have in the morning or just a snack to fill you up throughout the day. 

I tried it also but I didn't quite like the vanilla flavor. I mean my step dad drank it like it was juice. For me I had to have it cold so I added some ice cubes thinking it would taste much better, but I just didn't really like it. I think I would have liked it better if I added it into my strawberry banana home made smoothies.

~ My boyfriend Steve really loved the Strawberry Banana a lot so I ended up giving him the whole case because I did try it also and it just tasted chalky to me I did not like it. I think me and protein drinks don't mix well. Also you have to think about it how everyone has different taste buds. It just has a bad after taste for me as well.

~ Dark Chocolate my step dad likes it he has no problem drinking it. I recommend using them and making smoothies with them that way I don't have to get that chalky taste in my mouth and I can incorporate it into something I do like and get that protein fix as well.

  1. Would like to try the dark chocolate.

    1. Good Choice. I think me that would taste a little bit better then the ones I've tried.

  2. I would like to try the cold brew coffee flavor. It sounds delicious. Plus, I love coffee. :)

    1. Coffee one does sound good to try, but probably not for me! Maybe it would be nice to try as an iced latte or something ha ha.

  3. I would love to try Strawberry Banana we are having trouble finding a protein drink that tastes good!

  4. I drink protein shakes daily but these sound good. Dark Chocolate would be the first I would try!

  5. Honestly I'd MOST love to try a variety pack so that we could try all the flavors and that way we'd know which our favorite is to buy or continue to buy the variety. To me variety is most fun. BUT, if I am only allowed to choose 1 flavor I think it'd be chocolate because my weight lifting husband buys chocolate protein most often so I know that is his 1st preference and for me, it's hard to go wrong with chocolate anything. Haha

  6. First I would love to try the dark chocolate flavor. I usually go for that flavor first, since it is my favorite. I would be interested in the Cold Brew Flavor also! Sounds terrific to try them all.
