Taste: 7/10 Vega's chocolate flavor protein reminded me of ovaltine(sp)? The taste was good but it had a slight chalky texture. The chocolate is by far much tastier then the vanilla. I mixed it with water per the directions but if I had another sample I would try almond milk..I bet it would really improve taste. Overall a major step up from the vanilla flavor. Mixability: 10/10 Once again I was amazed..this stuff dissolved with very little effort..just a couple stirs of the spoon and its mixed almost 100%. Once again it sports a nice profile with 5,000mg BCAA and 5,000mg glutamine. I would would use this product again..am actually curious as to the baking/cooking applications..how it would compare to whey protein.

Maybe the best plant-based protein I've ever had. Flavor was on point and didn't have any funky aftertaste that you can sometimes get with a plant based protein. Overall very enjoyable and pretty solid profile.

I like more fruity flavors and this is a great way for someone like me who is lactose intolerant and a vegetarian to get the protein that they need!

I enjoyed this protein more then the all in one, the only problem I had with it was it had just a slight chalkiness to it. Everything else was great, if your a vegan and you need to supplement protein, give this a shot.

A great vegan protein source... love the taste of the chocolate!

ALL Vega products are of exceptional quality. I lift to shred and tone (I am a female in my min twenties), and the protein powders and nutritional shakes have been a huge part of achieving my goals by fueling my body with complete, clean nutrition. The flavors are not over powering and not chalky or fake tasting. Great to use in homemade protein pancakes and other baked goods.

I'm actually not vegan but switched to this protein for digestive reasons. It is easy on my tummy. Flavor is not that great but I'd rather sacrifice some taste for smooth digestion.

I stopped using whey protein a few months ago because of the growing bad press surrounding it so I've been looking around for a good tasting and complete vegan protein. I was hoping Vega protein's taste would make up for the high price but it didnt quite do it.... Christ, what's so difficult about getting plant protein to taste good?!?

I've tried several vegan protein powders, and this one is by far the easiest to drink.

This is a great, great product but value for money is completely out the window - as is the case with almost all of the Vega products. The only thing I think is still worth buying is the pre-workout energizer because that actually lasts longer than 2 weeks. $52 worth of protein powder that lasts me about 2 weeks is just crazyness. I switched to S.A.N. rawfusion and have fallen in love with it. Same great product but for a reasonable price. Too bad because I love the Vega Sport products, but although I earn good money and can afford it, I just think it's not worth paying over $100 for protein powders alone every month.

I became vegan over a year ago and after several disastrous attempts with basic vegan protein powders (hemp, pea, soy) -- the texture of all of them was gritty, and the taste was so overwhelmingly bad that no amount of added flavorings could mask it -- I had given up on finding a good protein powder. I'd always resisted trying Vega due to the price... but now that I've tried the vanilla, I've decided it's worth the cost. The flavor isn't as delicious as my past experiences with whey proteins, so I don't mix it directly with almond or soy milk and drink it straight; mixed into a smoothie, however, it is absolutely delicious and the texture blends perfectly.

I love Vega protein. I eat gluten free and I am Pescetarian (Vegetarian that eats fish). The 'old' Vega formula was chunky and didn't mix well and the taste was ok, not great. That has all changed when they re-branded the product and tweaked the recipe. Now it mixes great and tastes fantastic. I am speaking mostly of the chocolate and vanilla. I'm not a chi latte fan. The fruit one flavour is pretty good too. So it's Vegetarian and Vegan, gluten free, contains no soy or dairy(hence vegan but I thought I'd mention it anyway). It also digests very easily I find and doesn't make me gassy like some whey products. It also contains 18 different amino acids(according to the label, I didn't test it in a lab so don't write me angry messages disputing it. Take it up with Vega.) The only down side is the price. Overall, it's fantastic.

This is a great product. However I was just reading the label on a can I bought a few weeks ago and it no longer lists Hemp. Its unfortunate if they have removed this relatively high quality and expensive ingredient without reducing the price or making the consumer aware it was reformulated. Bodybuilding.com, please update your product information as you have a lot of copy that says it contains hemp which apparently it no longer does.

It was green in color... it was a quick gulp quite nasty actually. I tried it only once.

It's pretty pricy but I really like it. I am a lacto ovo vegetarian so I had been using whey protein - I switched from whey to Vega and I feel better. Tastes great, mixes really easily and doesn't leave a funky smell in my shaker cup. Another plus is the scoop is always on top! No digging for the scoop!

Taste was average, I've definitely had better. Mixability was awful, the powder clumped up and hardly mixed, I even had a blender ball to assist and that didn't even help. I had to pour into my blender to mix it up. I've never had that problem before with other proteins. Overall, I would not try again, it was decently priced at Sprouts for a sample one serving pouch.

THIS PRODUCT IS DANGEROUS! After a few uses I was VIOLENTLY ill. The product contains saviseed which to some people creates a violent allergy which includes, sweats, chills, extreme vomiting and diarrhea. Never felt worse in my life. A few hours after my first time drinking it I felt pretty nauseous, thought maybe I worked out too hard, the second time I was on the floor calling my husband to come home because I thought I needed to go to the hospital. No question that it was the Vega. Don't believe me? Google it, you'll find hundreds of people with the same experience. They need to put a warning label on the package, its just a mater of time before someone gets seriously hurt. Never, never, never again would I support this product.

Great alternative to whey protein. Solid amount of protein per scoop and great tasting. Does not mix as well as ON whey but not a deal breaker. Highly recommend, pricey but worth it!
