    First of all, thanks to Anchor and Kidspot for this opportunity to trial the Anchor Protein+ flavoured milk drinks! 🙂

    I love the packaging!! The surface has a matte feel which makes it quite tactile and nice to hold, while the shape and size are perfect really!

    The bottle has an eye catching front design and a nice use of colours.

    A slight improvement could be made to the colour of the text used for the ‘details’ on the back of the bottle, specifically: the brown on black (chocolate flavour) and the dark red/pink on black (mixed berry) makes it a little difficult to read.
    Thankfully the cream/yellow text on black of the vanilla one was much more easily readable, and the white text that is also used stands out well.

    Also, there is a lovely picture of chocolate on the chocolate flavoured one, berries on the mixed berry flavoured one, and a vanilla bean and flower on the vanilla flavoured one.

    However these pictures are labelled ‘serving suggestion’ – which I’m assuming the inclusion of this phrase is a mistake? As it is a little perplexing. Am I supposed to drink my protein milk while eating chocolate?, or while I’m eating a vanilla bean and flower?? That’s not really the definition of serving suggestion, where it should be a picture of how to consume the item with something else. In this instance, a protein drink is usually a stand-alone product, consumed by itself. This little oversight can be easily fixed though.. just remove the phrase ‘serving suggestion’!

    I loved the convenience of just grabbing a bottle, rather than my usual pouring a drink of milk and adding some Nesquik for flavour.

    I drank my first one after a large session of tidying and cleaning the house. My second drink after a hot session of gardening. And the 3rd drink I grabbed for my afternoon tea, before dashing out the door to drop my daughter off to her friend’s party. On all of these occasions I found the drink hit the spot, and made me feel like I had consumed enough to fill up the empty feeling and refresh me at the same time.

    As to which flavour had the best taste, flavour, texture, after-taste:
    the MIXED BERRY flavour WON! It was hands-down the best tasting on every level.

    I’m a bit of a chocolate lover, so I was assuming I would prefer the chocolate, but I found it tasted a bit like the chocolate Up & Go, not a proper strong chocolate flavour. And I felt that I could taste the fibre.. it didn’t leave the best after-taste.

    The mixed berry however, had a light taste, was quite REFRESHING, and was SMOOTH without any unpleasant after-taste.
    I will definitely be buying the mixed berry flavour when I want a protein drink.

    Vanilla flavoured came a close 2nd, I loved the vanilla fragrance that came from the opened bottle, and then it tasted like French vanilla ice cream! YUM!! Also smooth and refreshing.

    I will be recommending these range of drinks to friends and family, but I think my sister will need a few of these stored in her fridge, as she is forever on the go, and I’m not sure if she gets enough good stuff in her! These would be perfect for her.

    I will need a few in my fridge too, as they will prove to be a great drink to grab for those busy after-school afternoons when I’m going from one child’s activity to the next!

    As an on the go snack I found these perfect. No added sugar and no artificial sweeteners and with real milk these flavoured drinks were the perfect thing for me to keep me going between meals as I race from place to place. I tried all three flavours and vanilla is definitely my favour , although all were really delicious. Great to keep in the fridge and pack into the purse…. If like mine yours is big enough to have all but the kitchen sink contained within it !! Filling enough without being too much … Yes I will be purchasing them again, definitely the thing for me. Thank you for the opportunity to view them!!

  3. Annazteam 20/12/2018 at 5:05 pm

    Love love loving these. Have tried all three flavours, and the consensus here is that vanilla is best followed by the chocolate. A great extra hit when you want to ensure you feel full for ages. Great addition to breakfast, or a snack on the go. Tasty, smooth and delicious. They are more expensive than I would normally pay for this size product, but for a healthy snack on the go it is worth paying that little bit more. Yummy.

    Thank you for the opportunity to trail Anchor Protein Plus flavoured milk. I have two boys (aged 7&9) Master 7 loves milk and Master 9 doesn’t. Well, the chocolate and vanilla flavoured Anchor Protein Plus milks went down a treat for both of them! I felt great that their protein and calcium intake was being supplemented without stacks of added sugar and such a great product to have in the fridge. My husband also got to try the chocolate flavor after a huge bike ride – when he trains he fills up on milk when he gets home so this was perfect. We don’t usually buy flavoured milk as I always think it is full of additives and sugar but this product will be one that jumps in the trolley and is on hand, especially now that summer holidays are upon us. I’d like to try them frozen as ice pops from the freezer, what a great way to chill down on a hot afternoon without reaching for sugary ice cream or popsicles. Thank you again, this product was a hit in our household.

    Thank you for the opportunity to review these flavoured milks. They were easy to find in the supermarket. I got 2 each of the 3 flavours. They are a healthier option to other flavoured milks. I tried all 3 flavours and the Vanilla one is my favourite followed byMixed Berry then Chocolate. I will definitely be buying the Vanilla one again and again. They are suitable for me to drink as I am a Diabetic.

  6. Godzgirl 19/12/2018 at 10:04 pm

    Thanks for picking me for this review. I purchased all three flavours to try. My preference was surprisingly vanilla. I don’t normally choose vanilla and it’s not normally a flavour I like, but it tasted good. They were in the standard chilled drink section of the supermarket. They seem a somewhat healthier option than something like Lewis Rd Creamery, and although the flavour range was simpler, certainly not as sweet. They were refreshing and filling. So I would use in situations like afternoon tea on a day that I’d had to work through lunch (not a regular occurrence nor recommended), on a particularly physically demanding day.

  7. Mands1980 19/12/2018 at 8:10 pm

    These Anchor protein plus flavoured milks are a great way to get protein while on the run with 3 kids. I trialed 3 flavours the berry which was so delicious and the kids love the flavour as well the vanilla which was great as well and chocolate milk as well I definately be buying these again on a weekly basis thanks for letting me trial these flavours and I will be recommending to other people. It’s great they don’t have added sugar or artificial flavours.

  8. mummy2sirisxarkive 19/12/2018 at 12:11 pm

    Thank you so much for the opportunity to trial these scrummy drinks! I went to countdown but was abit surprised when I seen they only had vanilla on the self so these drinks are a very high demand and I’m not surprised with only trialing the vanilla I was amazed by the flavour they weren’t sweet or flavourless they were very nice and refreshing! The whole house tried them even my 2 kids and they were hooked and wanted more! I purchased the other 2 flavours when the store got there delivery and was in heaven with the flavour I would have to say I’m definitely a massive fan of the berry! Such a refresh burst on a muggy summers day!

  9. jmac 19/12/2018 at 10:16 am

    Thanks for letting us try these, my kids loved them – they were a great snack for after school, full of flavour too. I liked that they weren’t too sweet. We would definately order these in our shopping! Even hubby loved them.

  10. Starrz24 19/12/2018 at 10:10 am

    Thanks for the opportunity to try all flavors of anchor protein plus. Vanilla is our families favourite. We like that it’s not a thick as other flavoured milk. A real treat for the kids and a bonus that it has less sugar.

  11. Kandisd 19/12/2018 at 8:00 am

    Thank you for the opportunity to trial the Anchor protein plus flavoured milk.
    We received our voucher and straight away made our way to the local store. Our store had 2 flavours in stock, vanilla and chocolate
    My husband had the vanilla and my son the chocolate.
    I liked the fact that it has no added sugar, no hidden ingredients and mAde with real milk
    Both of them agreed that it tasted delicious, didn’t taste fake or sickly sweet and for my husband who was sick and struggling to eat he liked having his so he could take his antibiotics.
    We have since bought more and I can’t wait to taste the berry one too.
    Big thumbs up from our household

  12. sez857 18/12/2018 at 11:12 pm

    Thanks for the opportunity to try these! Tried each flavour and so good, I like that they are not packed full of added sugar so not sickly sweet like other flavoured milks! Great drink to have on the go (especially great as a busy working mum of 2) and my husband also enjoyed these too. Will definitely be buying again!

  13. Jenna01 18/12/2018 at 10:11 pm

    Thank you so much for choosing me as one of the lucky reviewers for anchors new protein + flavoured milk
    I found the milk super handy as a busy mother of two who sometimes forgets to eat during day
    I would just grab one on the go for some extra energy and found them to be deliciously flavoured i really took to the vanilla flavour
    I try to have a good amount of protein each day so was happy when I saw full of protein
    Kept me full and going for the day with ballet recitals and football trainings and busy weekends
    Bottles keep cool and nice size not too badly priced either in comparison to other milks
    Will definitely be buying more thank you for introducing me to them

  14. Mama_of_4 18/12/2018 at 9:28 pm

    YUM!!! These are awesome, loved the flavour, love the size and love the price!! I tried all 3 flavours and loved all of them, I will definitely be buying. And I love that I can give them to my children without all the added sugar, cheers Kidspot and Merry XMAS!!

  15. Cindy Christey 18/12/2018 at 9:03 pm

    Thanks for giving me the chance to try the 3 flavours of the Anchor Protein flavoured milk i liked the chocolate the most out of the 3 flavors i liked how it has 20g of protein and is made with real milk and having no added sugar is good as some brands of flavoured milk have sugar in them and the size of the bottle is a good size not to big or small just right and i found that i had a lot more energy after having the drink . I will definitely be buying some more soon

  16. Rachie 18/12/2018 at 8:50 pm

    Thanks for letting me trial these. I got one of each flavour and loved the berry one the most. I had one each morning and found I was not hungry until lunch time. I love How they have no added sugar and don’t taste like protein powder. These are my morning essentials for keeping my energy levels up while being busy with the kids. Will definitely be making sure these are in our grocery trolley each week.

  17. Keryn247 18/12/2018 at 8:49 pm

    Thanks for the opportunity to try these. I often find myself busy and with no time to eat lunch, something like this is just what I need quick and easy and filling. I could only get my hands on the vanilla and berry flavors. Both were quite pleasant and quite mild in flavor, I have a real sweet tooth. I also was expecting it to be a bit thicker in texture more like a smoothie, but it is just like flavored milk. Everyone in the family enjoyed them, but I can’t see us buying them on a regular basis due to the price, maybe more of a treat when they are on special

  18. jeniplatt 18/12/2018 at 8:07 pm

    I have to now been unable to find them in the shops in MOtueka. I will look in Richmond on weekend. sorry for delay .

  19. Resse 18/12/2018 at 7:07 pm

    I’m still having trouble finding these in the shop…

  20. caseyraskew 18/12/2018 at 6:48 pm

    Thank you for letting me trial these. I tried vanilla and mixed berries (they didn’t have chocolate). They were really yummy. I liked the flavour of both but the berry one was slightly stronger so I prefer that one. They tasted very much like an old school milkshake.

    They are nice and filling and a great pick me up. If feeling hugrey and in need of a quick fix I would grab one of these.

    Thank you – I certainly recommend them to other parents to try.

  21. theycallmemum 18/12/2018 at 6:43 pm

    I am so impressed with these! I tried each flavour and my favourite is the mixed berry but would happily have the vanilla and chocolate ones too. The best part of these protein milk drinks is that they taste like a sweet drink but they are packed with protein so they fill you up! I had these eCh morning and didn’t get hungry until lunchtime. I will be purchasing again, finally a protein milk that doesn’t taste like protein powder! Highly recommend.

  22. Heather_D 18/12/2018 at 6:09 pm

    It took a while to get these at our local Countdown, but was finally able to purchase them yesterday. I bought one of each of the 3 flavours – Vanilla, Mixed Berry and Chocolate.
    First impressions of them all was that they are quite sweet – particularly the Vanilla flavour. All flavours were nice though. Not too over-powering in flavour at all. The mixed berry flavour was probably the one that I found best balanced for sweetness and flavour. The chocolate reminded me of the calcium-yum chocolate drink, except the consistency was more of fresh milk than the thickened kids milk drink.
    I am guilty of skipping breakfast and found this kept me full right through the morning until I could stop for lunch. It definitely gives you the nutrients to keep you going through a busy morning. I loved that it was fresh milk drink rather than some of the other milk drinks I have chosen in the past. The Mixed Berry was my favourite and I’d definitely re-purchase again.

  23. nwoodford 18/12/2018 at 6:04 pm

    I trialed the chocolate and berry flavours. Both were nice. The chocolate was especially tasty, definitely at least as delicious as the best flavoured milk I’ve tried previously. My husband was of the same opinion and we would both buy these again. I imagine that the vanilla one would be nice as well. These would probably be my preference over other flavoured milk as they have no added sugar, and others are packed with them. They were quite satisfying as an in between meal top up also for satisfying sweet snack cravings as well. The packaging was attractive – my husband thought they looked quite sporty, and the bottles are a nice shape to hold – nicer than other brands. We would recommend these to other people, as well as will buy again ourselves.

  24. jodi22j 18/12/2018 at 6:01 pm

    I bought all 3 flavours they were on special at Countdown for $3.50 each. My favourite was the chocolate just the right amount of chocolate flavour. Wasn’t too keen on the vanilla it was quite intense and I’m not a huge vanilla fan, the mixed berry was nice and refreshing almost like a smoothie/yoghurt. They were so convenient as I don’t usually eat breakfast so it was good to grab and drink on the go. Great size and kept me full for quite a while. I would purchase them again however they are quite expensive for the size.

  25. VionaG 17/12/2018 at 9:28 pm

    Love the Anchor Protein milk. These tasted yummy and quite filling especially when on the go with the kids activities. My kids also love them, specially the berry ones. Awesome product, would definitely buy again

  26. BJW 17/12/2018 at 4:44 pm

    I couldn’t find any Anchor Protein Plus Flavoured Milk at my local Pak n’Save so then tried Countdown and found the range of 3 flavours which I bought for $4 each and used my coupon.

    The Anchor bottle had an appealing shape & eye catching design, but at a cost of $4 for 375mls it is far too expensive for a milk product.

    The Vanilla flavour was very creamy, flavoursome, but too sweet with the added sweeteners.

    The Chocolate had a nice chocolate flavour and was thick and creamy. It wasn’t as sweet despite the sugar content being the same as the vanilla.

    The Mixed Berry flavour smelt nice and had a lovely flavour. It didn’t taste too sweet. This reminded me of kindy days’ drinking pink milk for birthdays.

    I found the Anchor Protein Plus Flavoured Milk very filling and running around taking kids to tennis in the afternoon was great to have on the go & certainly did give me energy to carry on. At the price of $4 for 375mls it is a bit more expensive than I would have liked to pay regularly.

    I was very lucky to have been chosen to trial the Anchor Protein + Flavoured Milks 🙂 Thanks Kidspot and Anchor! I got the 3 flavours with my voucher, Vanilla, Mixed Berry and Chocolate and you know what? I loved all of them!! I was a bit dubious as I have tried flavoured milks and often they have a “fake” sort of taste to them which I don’t like. These are in really nice bottles – the colours and shape I really like. The milks are very flavoursome, sort of thick like most milk drinks but not as thick as others I have tried. My partner who really hates that kind of drink tried the chocolate and he actually liked it! I took them to work and put them in the fridge and had them as an afternoon sort of “pick me up” which worked a treat! Instead of having coffee or something to eat the milk drink really hit the spot! I really like these drinks the added protein and the no artificial flavours, additives or sugars is a huge +++! Well done Anchor, I will definitely be buying these again 🙂

    With the start of summer, and nearly christmas: this trial came at the perfect time for me. I easily found these in my local supermarket with their distinct, nicely sized bottles and with the price of just over $4 each, i was able to buy one of each flavour.

    My review on each flavour:

    MIXED BERRY- i tried this flavour first and found that although i liked it, i could taste the probiotics, which make it taste more like yoghurt than the others. I still liked it though but didn’t give me as much energy.
    VANILLA- next i tried the vanilla, and i really liked it despite the fact that the vanilla was really strong and left an aftertaste. this would be one of my go-to flavours though and it gave me a bit of an energy boost.
    CHOCOLATE- with somone who loves chocolate drinks, this drink was amazing. It had the right amount of chocolate and it really gave me an energy boost.

    Overall, i really enjoyed these milk drinks and i feel that they would be good to have handy for when i need an energy boost.

  29. crank 17/12/2018 at 3:40 pm

    I got each of the three flavours – chocolate, berry and vanilla. These are super yum! The chocolate one is just like the kids’ chocolate milk – but without the added sugar and the protein hit, I can drink this without the guilt! I am terrible for skipping breakfast and then I snack away all day because I’m hungry. But these are my new morning essential for keeping the energy levels up. The vanilla is a lovely smooth flavour and the berry is delicious too. The bottle is just the right size without being excessive and as they don’t have to be refrigerated until you’re ready to use them it gives a bit of space in the fridge. I have already recommended them to friends and will have these on my weekly grocery order. Love them!

  30. elca 17/12/2018 at 1:47 pm

    These were easy to find in the milk section of the supermarket and I managed to get all 3 flavours to try. They all tasted great, although as they have no added sugar they are not as sweet as other flavoured milk. I think this is a great drink/snack for between meals and while not too thick, it does seem quite filling. The expiry date is generous so they are great to have in the fridge for when you need them, without having to worry about using them up quickly. These are a much healthier option than other flavoured milk I have bought and will definitely buy them again.
