There was a week when I ran out of my protein supply and thank god the grocery shop below my gym had some individually packed on-the-go packs. There were two brands available, Heal and King Whey.
King Whey instantly caught my eye due to its packaging. Unlike most individually packed protein supplements, King Whey was in a bottle complete with a guide on how much warm and cold water should be filled to get the preferred amount of texture. It was the best customer convenience I’ve had.
Each of the bottle is about 1.5 serving of 32g, packing 26.1g of whey goodness. That’s about 81% of protein. It packs about 119 kcal, 10kcal from fat.
There were two flavours available- Chocolate Deluxe and Cookies & Cream. The chocolate deluxe, although a bit heavy for my taste, was the better of the two. Cookies & cream was alright but I’ve tasted much better ones out there. If you love the rich chocolatey flavour, you’d probably love the chocolate deluxe.
The price I paid for that was RM 7.90, which if you ask me, isn’t bad at all!
Mixing wasn’t too easy (maybe because of the bottle size) but it wasn’t too much of an effort as well. The first attempt usually left a small chunk of protein at the bottom unable to mix well no matter how much you shake it. However, a couple of water refills later it’s gone.
Without the convenience of the bottle, King Whey is an average tasting whey protein that’s probably a worthy trying. It’s a product of Muscle Kingdom, which is a company founded by the king of bodybuilding, Ronnie Coleman himself. Since Uncle Ronnie takes King Whey himself, the effectiveness of the supplement can be promising. If I could get my hands on a tub with a price that fits my budget, I definitely would.
