Chocolate Malt

Awesome taste. Tastes like hot chocolate if you ask me. No floaters or sinkers, doesn't feel like you're drinking a protein shake. blends very well no "left overs". Pretty good for what you pay. Will definitely purchase again.

The only protein brand that I've been using (constantly) since I started working out! Recently purchased the Mocha Cappuccino flavor and I really didn't like the taste of it! I'm not sure if there was a problem with the protein or that is the way it actually tasted, but anyways, I used the whole 5 lbs tub lol.

This is by far the best protein I have ever bought and it lasts a long time! It mixes really well and doesn't have a gross artificial taste. Mocha cappuccino is so delicious! I'm hooked for life.

The price is too high for a NON-ISOLATE whey!!!!!! With that price, I could get an ISOLATE whey!!!!!!!!! You guys will pay ONLY for the NAME and not the QUALITY of product.

Everyone trusts Gold Standard. Pretty straightforward protein powder--no bs. The Vanilla Ice Cream flavor mixes well in a simple shaker bottle and tastes good.

This is supposed to be THE powder to end all powders. If you go for taste theres much better protein powders out there. It mixes decent but again not that well. I like to mix their casein and whey together in water. Using straight water with any of these tastes TERRIBLE! USE MILK! you pretty much have to. If you want convience though, this ones for you. They sell this one EVERYWHERE!

Optimum Nutrition offers one of the highest quality and affordable whey proteins on the market. The proteins mix well and have no side effects such as bloating. French Vanilla Creme is hands down the best vanilla protein powder I have ever had. It is delicious by itself, in a fruit smoothie, or to use in protein pancakes. You can actually taste the creaminess and it tastes like a genuine vanilla, not the artificial type you get with many proteins. The chocolate malt is also delicious and is a nice variance from traditional rich chocolate without doing too much. Rocky Road was absolutely disgusting. I didnt mind it at first but after a few shakes it began to taste so artificial that I literally had to gag down the rest of the tub.

This is a very good why protein for the price. Price per serving is low which for me is a plus. For people that take protein for taste, this protein does taste very good. Last but to me most important, it works. In addition, this protein mixes very well, little to no clumping. ON is a very good brand and their products can be trusted.
