I have gone through two tubs of Animal Meal and I will be ordering a third. The taste really isn't bad. It is definitely not sweet, but you can taste the cocoa. It tastes a bit earthy really not bad at all. I have had other powders that tasted way worse. I feel full for about 2-3 hours. It is easy to digest and it does not give me the ***** or terrible gas. This is how I like to drink Animal Meal - I have a 25 OZ shaker bottle. Put 4 Ice cubes in with three scoops of animal meal. Then I put as much water as I can into the shaker bottle. Shake that stuff up and chug it. Ice cubes help a lot and I like adding more water so I can chug it easier.

I have used Meal replacements in the past and this is one of the best. Tastes like Ovaltine but with ground oatmeal in it. Definitely buy more.

I absolutely did not like the flavor, the taste or the way it mixed with water. I found it bland and chalky. I tried to mix it up in a water bottle with water by shaking it but I could never get rid of all of the big clumps. I would not recommend it not would I ever purchase it again.

What is SO REFRESHING about Animal Meal is it is not overpowering sweet like 99% of flavored supplements. No artificial garbage in it. Super easy to digest. Actually keeps you satisfied for more than 15 min. Depending how you use it, it can be a weight loss assistant, mass gainer or simply a meal replacement when super busy. Very versatile!

I’m not sure but i took it twice before bed, like a couple days apart and woke stomach hurting and diarrhea. I’m going wait like a week and take it again just to see if it was really the cause or not. Other than that it don’t taste too bad it’s like a strong chocolate taste like Hersheys

It blows my mind the there's negative reviews on this product. I forget that this is the internet and its mostly young adults with a palate of a 6 year old writing these reviews. People that say its no drinkable alone are absolutely insane. this shake taste exactly like watered down hot chocolate, not to sweet not to bitter. its the perfect blend of flavor. It mixes real easy and its thin, doesn't get to thick so its really easy to drink. I have no complaints about this product.

LONG REVIEW (But very detailed) Look man, its 2:15am in the morning. Just got done drinking my Meal and brushing my teeth i just wanna an honest review after have this for awhile and then head to bed. Ive only had 2 Mass Gainers in my life and Animal Meal is one of them and will be my only one from now on. But before i tell you about more about Animal Meal let me tell you about other Mass Gainers and how MEAL differentiates from them. My first Mass Gainer i had was from MuscleTech and i was an idiot who just wanted to get big and decided to take a swing at it. 3 days into taking it i was killing myself and choking myself out trying to down 3 HUGE scoops in one shake and sometimes not even 1 itself was bearable enough, i end up burning myself out and strayed away from Mass Gainers for the time being and it also didnt help Mass Gainers have a bad rep on the market for being BS. Most Mass Gainers on the market contain Maltodextrin and extra artificial flavors and sugars to sweeten your life up drinking it (It honestly makes it worse for me imo) and thats when youre really putting the BS in your body. How MEAL stands out and strays away from that is by doing the complete opposite of the average Mass Gainer (The nutrition facts and ingredients is right there). Im almost finish with my MEAL and i will continue to buy whenever i need it and i recommend it to anyone who is literally a hardgainer trying to put on some weight, Im also currently taking this with Animal M-Stak and Animal Stak and this review is no way made in favoritism of Animal Pak, i am fan of Animal Pak but my review is my opinion and self experience with their products. The flavor, lets be real. It says chocolate... it is. But their flavor of chocolate is blunt and careless of how you feel for flavor. They arent doing it for the flavor theyre doing it for the results they only added that to be generous towards you. If you want it, its right here. They dont hide anything from you, if you really wanna get big or gain some size what are you willing to do? Dont worry about if it taste like crap or not, just know that its gonna do what you want it to do if you stick with it. Dont sip on it, chug it, it taste ALMOST like oatmeal to me when you do it that way imo lol. You can taste the grains in there as well and its amazing and almost a reassuring feeling you know you arent putting **** into your body cause you know... its the good grains lol like oats and stuff. Digestive: I drink 2 scoops at a time with milk and as stated above most Mass Gainers have HUGE scoops its insane, but with MEAL their scoop is the EXACT same size as the protein scoop (Im a scientist ive measured both dont worry) so its not even a issue honestly. Its not clumpy most of the time or super thick even with milk which is surprising and honestly sometimes im alil girl, if i do 2 scoops with whey protein i gag but with MEAL i dont for some reason i think because it doesnt taste so sweet (But anyway) it goes down easily which is why i chug it voluntarily. I do get super gassy but i feel like thats to be expect, ive also notice my stool has been.... "a lot softer" so. In conclusion to this i believe and recommend Animal MEAL to anyone trying to put on some extra size. If you want some reassurance that what youre putting into your body isnt crap the nutrition facts and ingredients are right there. It doesnt taste that close to chocolate but your main concern isnt flavor its results and if flavor is a concern then im sorry but youre missing out on this product. 2 scoops is e-z p-z so if youre trying to slam it go ahead and wham it.

I don't normally write reviews (actually, this is my first), but I feel this product really deserves some positivity 'round these parts. Its nutritional profile speaks for itself, so I won't comment any further on that. Mixes easily with a regular shaker (no clumps or sticking). Taste... you ready? Delicious! This is where I feel something really needs to be said. The natural, not overly-sweet taste is so refreshing; I feel like I'm drinking actual food. There's just something so real about it. Not since Optimum's Natural Oats and Whey have I been this satisfied with a powder's taste, and I do not see myself getting sick of the flavour at any point. Try this for a month and go back to "regular"proteins, and you'll see how aggressive, synthetic and overly-sweet they all taste. This product is the way it should be. Lastly, no stomach irritation of any kind, which is always important. Fantastic product, Animal!

So many babies on here always complaining about taste rather than what's really important. By the way, the taste is actually really really good, especially for what you are getting. By far this is better tasting than any "gainer/mass" product I have ever had (I know this is a meal replacement and not a gainer). Universal and Animal produce some very high quality supplements and one of the few brands I actually trust. Animal Meal is amazing, made me full but not bloated what so ever, the taste was pleasant, especially after seeing the complaint reviews. 19 servings is actually pretty good for $50 for a product like this. Definitely cheaper than 15 lunches that meat this quality of macros. I use it to replace my lunches at work during rest days, which is 3 times a week for me, so one tub will last me more than a month. Very good product, plus Animal and Centopani are working on a couple new flavors so there will be more than just chocolate in the future. My experience/credibility: 10 years lifting and shopping from BB, GNC, VitaminShoppe; I've tried tons of protein powders and seen it all.

For me, personally, I give this product a 10 out of 10. Why? Because I have an extremely sensitive system (ulcerative colitis). I was in the midst of a mild flare-up and even with that going on this product agreed very well with my system. That tells me it digests easily and is pretty "clean." Yeah, the flavor ain't the best. But hey, I'm 45 years old and I remember when protein powders were like drinking sawdust and gasoline. So for me, this is totally tolerable considering the benefits you reap from it. Good job Universal.

Profile is a 10, taste is a 2, so this product is a 6. It's nearly undrinkable by itself. I mix it with regular chocolate whey and it's MUUUUUUCH better. I don't know if it's the pea protein or the sweet potato starch, but this product tastes very vegetal - it'll remind you of a greens product. Maybe it's the fact that there's no artificial chocolate flavor to cover it up. That's a good thing, but you just need to prepare yourself for the fact that this does not taste like chocolate whey. At all. But, hey, the profile is amazing. As far as profile goes, it's the best meal replacement I've seen.
