Strawberry

BevNET Review

The Strawberry flavor of Main Street Café’s Protein Smoothie is a shelf-stable yogurt-based drink. It offers 10g of protein per bottle on top of 280 calories. Flavor is quite good, with the familiar flavor and consistency of yogurt. The strawberry flavor is derived from actual strawberries, resulting in a very natural and enjoyable fruit flavor. It’s also very similar in flavor to the Mixed Berry, but we prefer this one since the strawberry flavor is more distinguishable. As far as the packaging goes, the 11 oz. shelf stable format is convenient and nice-looking. Our issue with the packaging is with their choice of logos and text, which, in its current rendition, is pitching Main St. Café, protein, and dairy. This results in a bit of a conflicted message and on top of that, they’ve buried the fact that this is a yogurt drink. Putting more emphasis on the yogurt – and perhaps less on the Main St. Café – might help this product have a more targeted pitch. Still, we really enjoyed what’s inside the bottle and even without changing the packaging, this is still a very good product.
