We’ve been working our way through MisFits vegan chocolate protein powder recently. I’ve always been a big fan of their coffee protein but hadn’t tried their chocolate until now. So, is it worth the money and would I buy it again?
In this article – we review MisFits vegan double chocolate protein powder to help you decide if it’s right for you.
Chocolate flavour protein powder is never my first choice. Not because I don’t like the taste – who doesn’t love choco-goodness?? But because it’s not a particularly versatile protein flavour.
Sure it tastes great with banana and almond milk but not so much with mango berries, or leafy greens. I find vanilla or plain protein powder much more useful because they mix and match with pretty much any other ingredient in my fridge.
All that said, I tried this MisFits chocolate protein as my partner is a big fan. Having now used it several times, I thought it was worth writing a short review. So, if you’re thinking of buying it then read this first.

Taste & Texture
First question – does MisFits chocolate protein taste good? Meh…
It’s not bad by any means, especially in comparison to many other protein powders on the market. But it’s not particularly delicious either. It’s ok mixed with almond milk or other ingredients but really not great with plain water.
The texture is pretty good. It blends smoothly and thoroughly with liquids so you don’t have that annoying gritty texture. There are smoother powders out there (e.g. Free Soul protein) but this one is definitely good.
This powder costs £19 for a 500g pouch which equates to around 90p per serving. The average rating on Amazon is a very solid 4* so we think this makes it good value for the price.
Each 25g serving contains 17g of pea and sunflower protein. While this is a decent amount, most other vegan powders contain more than this.
Pea protein is a great option for vegan and dairy-free protein powders. If you’re intolerant to lactose, soya, or gluten, then this may be a suitable option.
However, it’s not clear how much of this protein is branched-chain amino acids (BCAA). These are the specific amino acids most helpful in muscle growth and repair, so vital for workout protein shakes.
It’s hard to make a judgement about its effectiveness without knowing the BCAA content. We really wish they included this info on the product packaging.
A single 25g scoop contains 95 calories, 1g of carbs, and 2g of fat. It’s low in sugar (0.4g) which is a big advantage over other products on the market. It also has other useful nutrients like fibre (2.7g), vitamin B12 (100% daily requirement), and pre/probiotics.
We love that MisFits has done away with the plastic in their packaging, including getting rid of the disposable scoops. Two dessert spoonfuls are the equivalent of one scoop (25g) so there are no fancy utensils or faff needed.
Would I buy it again?
I would buy it again but it wouldn’t be my first choice. Free Soul vegan chocolate is a superior protein powder so I’d choose that over MisFits. However, MisFits is a bit cheaper and sometimes discounted in bundles, so I would buy it on special offer.
