Cake Donut
1/10

Optimum Nutrition is the best protein on the market. However, out of all the flavors I've tried, cake donut is by far the worst. I wouldn't get it again.

This is a safe buy. If you are looking for your first whey protein, look no further. Price/quality relation is great. Flavors aren't a dream come true, but they are easily among the best in the market. Go Chocolate and you will not regret it.

Not only does it taste great, it's definitely a must need to your pre- and post-workouts. Definitely an any-time mix you can have whenever you need to get in a dose of protein, even great before bed. Definitely keeps me from feeling crazy hungry in the mornings.

The taste is good enough, I mix it with half 1% milk and half water. It does the job, it's the thing I need right after a workout with a decent amount of protein. However, I will probably be buying a different flavor. Cake Donut isn't bad but it tastes like graham cracker to me.

Cake Batter
9/10

I have been lifting regularly for about a year and a half. When I started out, I would pickup the cheap Body Fortress protein from Walmart (more on that in a minute). Now that I have come farther along, I figured it was time to move onto a better protein. As most of us know, ON has one of the top protein powders on the market. It tastes great, helps fill you up, helps with recovery, and blends VERY easily. I highly recommend this. I know this is a review for ON, but about Body Fortress products, I have tried some different stuff of theirs. I will say that their preworkout is not great, but their protein and glutamine are both good for the price. If you are looking for protein without spending a lot, go with that. However, do not buy chocolate, vanilla, or chocolate peanut butter. The rest of their flavors are great, especially their caffeinated energy protein. But anyway, back on topic, Gold Standard is definitely a top-notch product and I recommend it highly. It is much better than that other stuff, so if you're willing to spend the money, go with this.

I absolutely LOVE this protein powder. It mixes well and doesn't have any nasty after taste. I use it for shakes and baking (pancakes, mug cake, cookies etc) and it works well with everything. I am excited to try the new Birthday Cake flavour and I will continue to always choose ON for my protein needs.

Great product! Due to the low carbs and sugar, I can drink one at night instead of a snack. Avoid the Cookies & Cream!

Definitely a staple out of all supplements in my pantry. Good solid whey protein every time and love the double chocolate.

Birthday Cake
4/10

The birthday cake was too sweet, and is pretty hard to drink if mixed just with water (to mask the flavor I just dumped in some cinnamon and used coconut water which just made it bearable). The only positive aspect is that if you use it for baking you probably won't need to use an additional sweetener.

The "new improved flavour" Vanilla has to be the best tasting vanilla flavoured powder ive tasted. Excellent in smoothies. Highly recommended.
