Wait a minute. The peanut butter banana one has the same amount of protein, but it’s not a “High Protein Smoothie Mix.” Conspiracy against nuts? (Spotted by Elizabeth L at Target.)

  1. Looks like the peanut butter one is the only vegan option, the other two are contaminated with whey as the protein source rather than just adding some plant protein. Nuts, seeds, and legumes (often pea protein) are typically used in vegan complete protein powders, often with rice protein. Chia and hemp seeds are popular high protein components.

    They probably didn’t use the term “high protein” because peanut butter is well known as a good protein source.

  2. The old-fashioned looking Kroger sodas are really good for store-brand soda. Heavy on the sugar (40g per can for the Cola Time), but it is real sugar and not HFCS.

  3. Kroger Real Sugar Birch Beer and Ginger Ale are really tasty. Sweet? Yes, but it’s a soda, they’re supposed to be sweet.
