Just received a new order of Queal, first one with the complete branding change and was so surprised I had to post some pictures.
First of all, a note on the packaging. Superb new image, box arrived in perfect condition and it really causes an impact!
Second, I did order the new premium shakers and It was really nice to receive some stickers, a Queal Go Bar as gift. The packaging was superb, all items arrived in perfect condition:
Now for the shaker. It is indeed a premium shaker, starting with the packaging. The boxes you see abore are just to protect the beautiful round boxes of the shaker:
So many cool details, the inside of the cover has a round instruction sheet, the shaker comes with another layer of protection and overall everything feels pretty premium. Once I took a look at the shaker I was surprised by how beautiful it is, and not so surprised when I noticed the inside is not glass but plastic. Still, it's a very good quality plastic and maybe it's even better because it's lighter, let's hope the dishwasher won't damage it as mush as glass.
The markings on the side are barely visible, but enough to guide you on how to fill to the desired quantity and not spoil the minimalist look of the shaker. As a side note, the side is absolutely perfect to fit my water dispenser, so that was another added bonus
Now, I like to use 500ml of water, its a personal taste but it works for me. I was a bit afraid that with the powder it would be too much for the shaker, but it is not, there is still plenty of room to shake it and the wide opening really makes it easy not to spill power. Thumbs up!
As for the stickers, well, I use them on my powder jar. I find that spooning powder from the bags always spills a bit, so I ordered some 6L food jars online and when I get a new order I just fill the jars with it. Spooning from the jars is so much easier and convenient The sticker really make the bland white jar look pretty cool! Guess I'll have to wait for the next order to get a new set of stickers to use on the shakers.
Now for the most important part of the shaker, shaking. I was a bit skeptical about not having a whisker ball, but to be honest I didn't shake that much compared to the old shaker, and in just a few seconds I had a perfect mix! I guess the round bottom really helps, and even with 500ml of water there's enough room to shake everything.
At the end, a very, very happy client. Obviously the flavour to try was the new Groovy Green Apple and I always prepare in advance and leave overnight, so tomorrow I'll update my taste notes.
Thank you Queal, this was a really pleasant experience!
