I guess maybe this was my own fault for not thinking that since it was coffee flavored it would have caffeine, but i would have liked there to be more of eye catching place that said, " there is caffeine in here"

Flavor was good, better than I had expected. No mixing issues or issues when I used it to bake/cook. Good profile, good value, good product.

I am giving this 10 stars as it is a lot cheaper than the bigger brands, it does have a lot more ingredients than ON, but its pretty comparable to JYM and Muscle Pharm. Flavor: This is actually one of the best tasting ones i've tried. It is very light, not heavy to drink. It tastes EXACTLY like Swiss Miss Hot coco, and tastes like it also. I have not mixed with milk, but i bet if you did it would taste exactly like hot coco (but cold)

Love this protein mix. Has everything you need. If you follow Jim Stoppani you know that you want a good protein blend of whey, casein, . This brand is economical for those who want to maximize their dollars. Mixability is OK. Vanilla is great Chocolate is good too especially with milk. Good for smoothies, post workout, anytime. No fillers either so that's a bonus.

Dymatize gourmet is alright. It does what it's intended to do but I got the cookies n' cream and was disappointed by the flavor and texture. It's just very chalky and tastes nothing like the name. I've never had any other protein froth up like this one in a shaker cup so I find that very odd. Mixabilty; 6.5/10 Texture/consistency: 6/10 Taste: 6.5/10 (fairly good mixed in oatmeal. decent flavor with either milk or water but barely has a hint of cookies n' cream) I do like and support Dymatize but I'm sure there are better blends out there. I think it would be fair to try a different flavor before making a final assessment but I would definitely not recommend this particular flavor.

Great flavor and mixes well. Suggest adding a scoop of PB Fit to make an even better shake!

Normally I stick with ON for my protein needs, (Gold Standard, Performance, Casein, or Hydrowhey, depending on current goal) which is perfect for me. However, I saw the Dymatize Elite on sale for around $30 for the 5lb tubs. I purchased the Cappuccino rush and Peanut Butter Chocolate (CPB). First off, I am not a fan of the powder itself. It was very fine and clumpy, not easy to mix. I just finished my tub of chocolate peanut butter, and had my first taste of the cappuccino this morning for my breakfast shake. The CPB did not taste great at all, but was tolerable. The Cappuccino thus far tastes better in my opinion. I was not working toward any specific goal while taking this, so I cant attest to any usefulness for gains or cuts. However, I maintained as I wanted with no issues in terms of accidentally gaining or losing weight, so it certainly worked well for a maintenance protein. Its definitely worth a shot if its on sale, but I honestly will stick with ON in general. If this goes on sale again, though, it cant hurt to give it a shot to see how it works for you.

Wonderful product, I have confidence in Dymatize products and know of natural bodybuilders who only trust there physique to dymatize products. Please continue to crank out protein without all the unnecessary hype and junk.

When i bought swiss chocolate i went into it with high expectations since i read that most people were saying it tastes like nesquick. it was not bad at all, but for me, i felt that it was too sweet. I honestly have a love/hate relationship with the strawberries and cream. At first, it tasted terrible (at least to me) but as I started to drink it more and more i started to hate it less, of course I also started to blend it with a banana so i can tolerate it. What I'm trying to say is .. if you are not a super chocolate loving person like myself, then I would honestly recommend this one.

Compared to other proteins that I used in the past, this one is probably the worst. I like the brand Dymatize, it always have cheap price and good protein. Compared to other similar proteins(sustained release) such as Dymatize's Fusion 7 and Muscle Pharm's Combat Powder, Elite Gourmet is really hard to blend. I had to shake my shaker for about 10 minutes still not mixed well. It is really thick, and not good taste. I don't mind about thick or bad taste of the protein as long as it does the work. But this one doesn't blend well, I don't like to eat dry protein powder. If you don't mind eating powder, then it is really good priced. $40 for 5 lbs, and you can still use come back 10% off or birthday 10%, which is really cheap

This is a good overall protein. I like that it has both Whey and Casein protein. However, I do feel that there are more sugars/carbs than I'd prefer. I also really like that Dymatize doesn't appear to Protein/Nitrogen spike their products. Thats a HUGE plus for me! I Gourmet Elite as my post workout shake (Just Elite for everything else because of the Carbs) and the cookies and cream flavor is awesome. Much better than Cinnamon Bun or Chocolate Mint. I usually order Rich Chocolate, Chocolate Fudge, or Cookies and Cream when I order Dymatize. These are their best flavors IMHO. Overall I'm happy with this protein, especially for the price of a 5 lb. tub! Go Team Dymatize!

This protein powder is overall good. The flavor is very nice. It really is "gourmet". The problem (at least my experience) is while mixing it with milk/water. It is very hard to dissolve completely. That's the only problem I got with this protein. But for the price and servings, it is a very good option to go with.

Excellent taste, dilutes well and is great in recipes and smoothies too!

This protein is a great deal, I got 5 pounds for $40. However, you get what you pay for. The protein doesn't mix as well as other popular protein powders in shaker bottles, taste isn't anything special but I have no problem getting it down. A lot thicker once mixed than other powders

This protein is a great deal. I got 15 pounds for one hundred dollars so it was a great buy. For protein powders you get what you pay for. For this price its obviously not gonna be 100 percent whey isolate. This is a mixed protein blend with whey protein concentrate as the top ingredient for those that do not know this is the cheapest form protein. Their is casein protein in this mix, but if you are looking to add some slow digesting casein protein drink milk or shell out the money for one. All in all this is a great post workout/ meal replacement (or enhancer). 21 g protein, 140 calories, 2.5 g fat, and 12 g of carbs. Im pretty sure there has been third party tests for amino spiking on this product and it came out clean, but i need a fact check. Lastly don't get the cappuccino rush flavor if you plan on taking a shake before bed, since their is 100mg of caffeine.

I really did not like this protein at all. Which is odd because I really like ISO-100. It did not mix well at all and it tasted awful.
