Testing Results and Ratings
We reviewed Sinister Labs Angry Mills Spreads on four categories. We first start by looking at it’s ingredient profile. This portion of the review looks at the ingredients used, amounts included and their intended purposes, as well as other ingredients used. We also look at the macro-nutrients.
Then we move into the taste of the different flavors we’ve tried. We grade each flavor separately and average the scores for their overall taste rating. We were able to test out Wicked White Chocolate, Chocolate Craze, Honey Grim Cracker, Killer Caramel and Chocolate Chaos.
We look at texture on this as well. We want to make sure it is edible/drinkable.
Finally, we talk about value. Value is the combination of profile, effectiveness, taste and texture in relation to cost. Another part of value are the competitors and other versions of this available on the market.
Each jar of Sinister Labs spreads contains 12g of protein. Sinister Labs includes both whey and rice protein to bring up the levels of protein per serving. Compare this to the national brand Justin’s, which only has 7g of protein per serving.
A popular choice among these spreads are the caffeinated versions. They include 40mg of caffeine per serving. For a point of reference, a cup of coffee contains approximately 90mg of caffeine. The caffeinated versions are great, but you may want to avoid during your late night snack.
Now onto the main ingredients that spreads are typically made of. Sinister Labs does start with peanuts or almonds (depending on which version you buy). They do add in Palm Oil and Canola Oil. These are healthy fats which can contribute positively to your gains. Some versions include honey for a sweetener and for flavor.
The one area that I wish wasn’t part of these is the added sugars. About 4g of sugars are added per serving. However, in order to make a great tasting spread we understand that the use of sugar is needed. With total sugars around 5g, we can live with this.
Here are the macros on a peanut butter spread:
Overall this is a great profile. Other spreads on the market do include more sugars and additives. Not Sinister Labs.
Wicked White Chocolate:
Honey Grim Cracker:
We were lucky that we got to try every variation of the Sinister Labs Angry Mills spreads. They beat out the competition by quite a bit. We’ve tried Buff Bake Spreads and were not a fan of the flavors.
Our favorite flavor was the Wicked White Chocolate. Chocolate Craze tastes a lot like Nutella. Chocolate Chaos is different than Chocolate Craze, but not by a ton. The big difference there is Chocolate Chaos is almond butter, while Chocolate Craze is peanut butter. The Honey Grim Cracker is good too, and it does taste a lot like graham crackers.
Overall, every flavor was good, with Wicked White Chocolate taking the cake!
With the caffeinated version, it was a bit more “grainy” than your normal peanut butter, even more-so than the non-caffeinated version. With the addition of rice and whey protein you can expect this to happen. Just add whey protein to your normal peanut butter at home, you can see exactly what I am talking about.
The “grainyness” isn’t bad. You can just tell after you’re done eating that it feels like there is something stuck to the bottom of your teeth.
Overall, the texture of the spreads, both peanut butter and almond, are very smooth. They are not chunky at all (no chunky version available…yet). This is great on anything from apples to rice cakes to just plain by itself.
Compared to normal store-bought peanut butter and spreads, this will come in at a higher price tag. These retail for just over $1/ounce. You can get a 12oz jar for just over $12. Compared to other “premium” spreads like Buff Bake, these are also more expensive. Buff Bake comes in around $9 for 13oz. So there is a premium here.
The thing to keep in mind is there is the added protein and the added caffeine (if you want it). The kicker here is the taste. This makes it all worth the investment. I suggest you give it a try and see for yourself. Are there other versions out there that are cheaper? Sure. Are there better versions out there? No, no there is not.
