Tasty and it works, and I am a sceptic
I am always a little sceptical about sports drinks and have normally found some malt loaf and fruit squash does the job for me pretty well. However increasing my mileage on the bike and running has resulted in some muscle soreness the day after so I though I would give a recovery drink a go.
Reading the reviews on the Wiggle website I settled on For Goodness Shakes. It flippin works you know! Not only does it work but it tastes just like a decent milk shake. I have had the banana one, its creamy without being sickly and I can digest it very easily.
Tried my running both with and without the shake and yup it prevents the aches and pains.
I like to make it up before a run or ride and keep it in the fridge as is tastes at its best when chilled. When at a race it goes in my cool box and is a welcome treat at the end.
Looking forward to trying the strawberry one next.

Tasty, effective, cheap.
Bought some of the Vanilla as an alternative to SiS or Torq. Much tastier than SiS and much cheaper than Torq so could thoroughly recommend.

Tastes good, seems to work well.
Nice and creamy, unlike other recovery shakes I've used that you mix with water. Tastes pretty decent and subjectively and anecdotally seems to be quite effective at aiding with recovery, though of course it's hard to scientifically test! :)
Only minor issue was finding the scoop inside the tub - it was well buried!
Of course, like most powdered shakes, the dust can make a small mess even if you're reasonably careful.
The price I got it from Wiggle was decent, but I'm not sure I'd pay the RRP.

Best product out there
This product is by far the best out there. It mixes perfect and easy leaving no lumps and tastes great. Something to look forward to start the end of my training.

Easy to mix and tasty
Very tasty and easy to mix. Hopefully it does what it says

Great for post run refuelling.
Good for refuelling, taste is OK. Shake is a little thick. Better if it's cold.

Love this product
tastes good and I always recover quicker after having this. Tend to have this after hard training sessions.
15 June 2016
Excellent shake, very easy to digest after a hard session and not too sweet. I recommend it to all my friend / colleagues.

I really love this product...it is the only protein that I have used that actually tastes good with water! It is especially good if you freeze it. I also love that the Berry flavour is lush..I have tried other strawberry based proteins and they are all gross :-) They only negative I have is sometime it really makes me bloat and I get tummy ache, however I think this is related to how much water I have consumed prior.

After a long ride I look forward to a pint of vanilla flavoured Procovery. A mixing tip for you. Two scoops in a 500ml bidon half filled with water. Shake well and pour into a pint glass. Top up pint glass with water. Saves stirring and avoids lumps. In summer months, put a pint of water in the fridge before you go out on your ride.

Great recovery drink.
Tastes great compared to other manufacturers recovery products and it does what it says on the label.

DOES WHAT IT SAYS
I love this recovery product; it's easy on the stomach and tastes great. My favourite is superberry, but vanilla is nice too. I try to drink it when I'm stretching so that it starts to do the job quickly and I definitely feel the benefit the next day even if I mix up a half portion as I often do if my runs are 5 - 10k, anything more than that I go for the full portion. It sometimes mixes a bit lumpy, but if you mix with half the water then top up, or mix in a blender it's fine.

I love the strawberry and vanilla flavours, it is very creamy and easy to drink. Mixes very well with no bits of powder stuck anywhere. Someone mentioned the bubbles that comes from when you are shaking it up but to get around that make it before you go out, stick it in your fridge or bag and drink then the bubbles will have settled. It's not really an issue. Great product I would highly recommend and it does seem to work as I've used it after 50 plus mile rides to 100 miles and I felt better the next day compared to when I haven't used it.

Great product, disappointed that Chocolate wasn't available this time around.
06 April 2016
Best tasting recovery product on the market
I have tried both the chocolate and vanilla and I love the stuff. The powder mixes well, goes into a good texture with just water and tastes great. The body definitely feels alot better the day after having had some of this.

My Favourite Recovery Powder
I love this stuff.
In the past I have suffered from fatigue the day after a long work our or full on day on the bike.
I'm either getting super fit (unlikely), or this stuff really works - I feel next to nothing the following day.
I use the Strawberry flavour which tastes great. When compared to other powder shakes I have tasted, I could drink this as a treat all day long.
I mix 1 - 2 scoops (depending on how hard I have worked), with 350 ml of water and 350ml of milk. It tastes great with milk, like a proper milk shake!
I am on my third tub and I'll easily use it all before the expiry date.

Great taste and easy to mix
Discovered this product a couple of years ago. Used to buy the premixed bottles but now buy the powder. Advises to mix with water which is fine however i mix it with milk.

Great taste, great product
Have been using For Goodness Shakes for years now and really like their flavor and effect. Ready to go again the next day!

Taste is everything
Tried the rest, this is definitely the best, although it is not the cheapest, you get what you pay for. Buy a load now, prices keep going up due to its popularity.
24 January 2016
Simply the best
This is simply the best recovery product around. Almost a reward after a long ride, but definitely helps a quick recovery straight after exercise.

Excellent source of energy on a long ride
I use this on long rides - it fills the tummy with some energy to keep you going. Tastes great too. Double thumbs up.

Best Shake I've tried
Ive tried many many different protein drinks over the years and this is the best. I bought the chocolate and it is delicious after a hard workout and I can drink it without grimacing or wanting to throw up - always a bonus.
Mixes well, it's about the only one I've finished the whole portion of.
Not used it enough yet to see if there are any benefits but I'm now training 6 days a week - weights and marathon training so needed to find something that I could tolerate.

Bought on a regular basis for my son who is a regular swimmer. He loves the taste. My only fault is over the past 9 months i have paid Wiggle between £21.59 and £30.40 for the same 1.44kg tub.
03 January 2016
Have tried several different brands of protein shakes over the years but this is definitely a favourite. The flavour is easy-going without tasting synthetic and I've always found this to be the best shake if you have any kind of issues with a delicate stomach.

Does exactly what it says on the tin!
Tried many other recovery drinks and this tastes good and aids with recovery the best!
18 December 2015
I have been training for triathlons since 2012,from sprint to ironman distance.
I can't recommend this product enough,it has everything your body needs for recovery and minerals for your day today training.
15 December 2015
Tastes great, does great!
This tastes nice and definitely helps the muscles recover after a hard session on the road or in the pool.

Does what it says on the tin
Looking at this product and comparing it to other very well known and much more expensive powders there was little difference. More than happy.

Psychological???....I think not
Some say energy and recovery drinks are an unnecessary expense, me?, I think not. After a 4 hour , 100km spin around the hills, even if there is a little amount of help contained within these drinks, I think it's worth the expense

It recommends water and that tastes just great. Suppose you could mix it with milk but theres no need. It might be too rich as a proper recovery shake (if you have worked really hard and are on your knees). But

I can't really point my finger at a precise flavour but as the name suggests, it's a berry flavour. Probably closest to raspberry. Personally I think the superberry tastes great and would recommend it (haven't tried the other flavours).

I have tried them all and can honestly say I loved them all...even though I am not a fan of chocolate shakes this one was good. It depends on what you want it for. I use the berry one in my porridge and to make protein pancakes, so it adds a bit of sweetness. So, I guess it depends on what you are going to use it for. If it is just as a recovery drink after a hard session then I would say any, they are all yummy:-)
