NEWS: New Special K Protein Shakes May Prove Once and For All That Women Do Fart

Whenever I think of a protein shake, I think of those HUGE canisters of protein shake mix my old roommate used to buy from GNC to gain muscle. They came in different flavors, like chocolate and strawberry. I’m not sure how the protein shake mix worked, but I assume he gained muscle by lifting that HUGE container all the time. But I do know that soon after he made a protein shake the apartment began to reek of farts.

The Kellogg’s Special K Protein Shake takes the mixing out of the protein shake mix and is a dainty ready-to-drink protein shake for, I can only assume, women or people who like to fart. Actually, I don’t know if this product causes farting like the GNC protein shake mix does, but if it does, it will prove once and for all that women do fart, which I didn’t think they did.

The Kellogg’s Special K Protein Shake comes in three flavors: French vanilla, strawberry and milk chocolate. Each shake has around 180 calories, 5 grams of fat, 29 grams of carbohydrates, 5 grams of fiber, 18 grams of sugar, 10 grams of protein and a whole lot of vitamins and minerals.

  1. Things that might make you fart to look for in the ingredient list (I looked for it online but couldn’t find it): (1) sugar alcohols (sorbitol, malitol, things that end in “itol”, very nasty)or (2) inulin (not as nasty but this kind of added fiber does make some people pass particularly smelly farts. :(

    @Anonymous: Ahem…Since I know you came here via a Google Search for the Special K Protein Shakes and you don’t seem like a regular TIB reader, I’m going to say this (using some of your words):

    You should read things before you knock them.

    This post is not a review; it’s a news item. I didn’t voice my opinion about the product itself, just the thought that it reminds me of those protein shake mixes from GNC.

  4. I loved your article Marvo! I was having a crappy Monday and this has definately improved my day, hilarious! Why are those GNC canisters so HUGE, I’ve always wondered that myself. Is it a man thing? I liked the Special K drink by the way but it did leave a funny aftertaste. I had strawberry, and yes us independent women do fart anywhere anyplace anytime. It’s hard holding them in but what’s funny is if there is a man around we never get blamed for it.

  5. @Stephanie: Thank you for clearing up the farting mystery for me. Now that I know women do it, I’m going to start blaming them in the elevator.

  6. Oh Lawd…now that’s funny. But, it wasn’t all that funny at my house after I discovered Fiber One bars!!! They tasted great, were only 2 points on my WW plan…but egads!!! My intestines are still ticked off at me.
