The best tasting protein powder you can buy in the UK (top 5)

If you're wanting to increase your protein intake, then consuming protein powder is probably the easiest and most convenient way of doing just that.

It's usually quite cost-effective, it's quick to prepare, and you can buy a wide range of protein powders to suit all dietary requirements, from low calorie options to vegan varieties. But one issue that many people have with protein powder is that they just can't get on with the taste. This is a real issue if you've just bought a 1kg tub of a protein powder Luckily, there are some great-tasting options out there, so we thought it would be useful to round up the best tasting protein powder you can buy in the UK.

Let's get into it:

Mars protein powder

If you're a fan of the Mars chocolate bars (which we are), then this Mars Protein powder is definitely up your street. It's a whey protein powder which has that classic chocolate and caramel taste of Mars bars, and we think the taste is really close to the real taste of a Mars bar.
In fact, if you're a fan of the Mars bar milkshakes that you can buy, then you'll probably love the taste of this protein powder. As well as being very tasty, it's also high in protein with 15g of protein per serving.

Twix protein powder

Another excellent-tasting protein powder which tastes just like a classic chocolate bar is this Twix protein powder. It's described as being Chocolate, Biscuit, and Caramel flavour protein powder, and we were skeptical when we saw that this protein powder claims to have that classic biscuit taste of a real Twix, but we think that taste really comes through. If you mix it with milk then it has the same chocolate-y flavour as a real Twix too. Learn more and buy it here -

Pulsin chocolate pea protein powder

We wanted to include a vegan-friendly protein powder in this list, and we'd probably say of all the vegan protein powders we've tried, this chocolate pea protein powder from Pulsin is the best-tasting. It's made with real cacao powder and what really impressed us about this protein powder is that it's all-natural and contains no added sugar. So if you're looking for a great-tasting protein powder which is all-natural, this is definitely your best option. Learn more and buy it here -

Maltesers Hi Protein

If you're a fan of the legendary chocolate balls then this Maltesers Hi Protein powder is definitely one that you'll want to try. It's chocolate malt flavour, which doesn't actually sound very tasty but that's actually the taste of real Maltesers, and this protein powder tastes exactly like that. It definitely has the maltiness of real Maltesers, the only thing it's missing is the crunch. Learn more and buy it here -

Snickers protein powder

With a caramel and peanut flavour, this Snickers protein powder is very delicious and definitely one of the best tasting protein powders that we've tried. The peanut flavour really surprised us as it comes through a lot in the flavour, and when we mixed this powder with milk we really felt that it tasted like a real Snickers. Similar to what we experienced with the Mars protein powder, if you've ever tried the Snickers milkshake and you enjoy that product, then you'll probably love this protein powder.
