Thank goodness I started out with the 'chocolate coconut' flavor instead of the 'chocolate mint' flavor. I don't find the 'chocolate mint' to have much of a flavor period. I got a 2.5lb container when a special promotion was available. Instead of returning it, I've bypassed the flavor with adding mint extract and/or more fruit than usual. I'm looking forward to trying the 'vanilla' flavor. The 'chocolate coconut' will still be my favorite.

Chocolate Peanut Butter

It tastes just like Reeses Puffs cereal. Add milk instead of water and it tastes even better.

Expensive powder based on what is available locally in mass market (6 Star, Body Fortress etc.), but the label is significantly cleaner. Flavors so far have been good (yet to try the chocolate tub I bought), powder dissolves well in water, and rinses out of my bottles well too!

Mocha Cappuccino
10/10

Mocha cappuccino is glorious! It's been a long while since I've have ON protein and I'm glad I switched. This stuff is great! Mixed very easily with about 8 oz liquid(equal parts water, 2% milk, and coffee) in a shaker cup.

This has been a consistent go to for me over the years. You can't go wrong with it in any flavor you choose. High quality product with results that show. I always find my way back to Gold Standard after trying other products. It just works.

Double Rich Chocolate

This is pure garbage,they still living in 1999,when this garbage was created. Tastes awful and causes allergic reaction,my skin turned red. I don't understand the good reviews here,they must be from the people who works for this company and are being paid extra to write these reviews. DON'T BUY THIS GARBAGE PLEASE

Quite costly and not so tasty. There are other products more cost effective.

I have to say that I have been very impressed with the service of bodybuilding.com. They have always have my products to me within a couple days of ordering and always have awesome surprises in my box! For example, my last order they sent a gym bag, a new hat, and a bunch of supplement samples! Awesome products and awesome service!! Jordan

Double Rich Chocolate
5/10

Very disappointed with Optimum and I have no idea why this brand is so well rated among users. There are thousand of better brands in the market. The double rich flavor is too soft, didn't like it.



For my money, the best value. High quality at a great price.
