Review for: Delicious Strawberry more...
I have been into fitness for awhile now but not consistently. This year I decided enough was enough I'm getting to my goal. Which is to lose fat and gain muscle. I asked one of the trainers at my gym and he recommend this product. I was extremely skeptical I have tried protein powders before and they were either absolutely disgusting or the texture was gritty and powdery. This product is none of that! It taste amazing and it dissolves so well in every liquid. You get about 29 servings in the small container, the one I have, and the price is good. I bought mine for 30.00 at my gym Xsport. I will continue to buy this product and I highly recommend you try this if you are on a fitness journey similar to myself. Optimum Nutrition 100% Whey Gold Standard, Delicious Strawberry, 5-Pound

Review for: Natural Vanilla more...
I have tried so many protein powders over the years and all of them ended up being chalky tasting and I had to force myself to finish them, and add things like peanut butter or fruit to help enhance the taste. Well, my search for the perfect protein powder is now over, thanks to Optimal Nutrition! I have heard about of great it is from my bodybuilding boyfriend ( it really helped him pack on muscle) and I finally tried it out for myself and I'm amazed! It is the silkiest, smoothest powder ever and just magically mixes with water or milk! No clumps, no chalkiness or whey taste whatsoever! It tastes like a milkshake! So easy to drink and each serving has 24g of protein and only 110 calories. It lives up to its name The Gold Standard. Try it, I know you will be sold on its greatness too.

Review for: Double Rich Chocolate more...
One of my favorite proteins! As far as taste goes it is the BEST proteins I have ever tasted. If you use milk instead of water to mix it it honestly taste like chocolate milk. It isn't at all chalky and I look forward to taking it! Another thing I love is for the amount of calories it has it sure does pack a lot of protein and I'm all about getting my protein in. Has definitely helped me put on muscle but also a balanced diet is key. Only use as a supplement!

Review for: Double Rich Chocolate more...
My protein go-to! This is one of the cleanest proteins in the market- the macro-nutrient contents are next to none as good as one can get AND they taste delicious, especially the double rich chocolate. This protein easily blends and does not leave any grainy residue like many protein supplements typically do. Also great in a blender to make smoothies as well as great for baking protein-rich dessert. Reasonably priced. I use for post workout, larger snacks, meal replacement, smoothies, baking, and more.

Review for: Natural Vanilla, Extreme Milk Chocolate more...
I usually do not like whey proteins but this one is a fantastic go to! my boyfriend and I use it all the time, it mixes well with water, milk or in smoothies. You get a great amount of protein and calories as well. It is a lot of product for the price (so its worth it). The product comes in different sizes and so many different flavors you are going to find one that you like. Love this brand and its products, no matter what your goal is they have something for you!

Review for: Double Rich Chocolate more...
This is the first protein supplement I ever used when I started to get into lifting. I love the flavor, and mixed it into protein shakes after the gym, or by itself with water. Unfortunately I think my stomach is sensitive to the Whey, as I would have terrible bloating and gas after using it. I've since switched to a plant based option, but I don't blame the product for that. Wish I could use it because I love the flavor.

Review for: Cookies N' Cream more...
This is a great high-quality protein, but the reason I love it so much is because it tastes so amazing.  The cookies'n'cream flavor is so bomb, that I dont mind drinking my protein shakes.  A lot of protein powders are healthy but taste disgusting, and I have to hold my nose and chug it down.  Not with this one, its delicious.

This is one of my favorite protein powders. You can do so much with it.. it really made a huge difference in my profomance.. I was getting stronger and felt better. I was recovering faster and everything. The taste isn’t my favorite but I just don’t like the taste of any protein powders, I haven’t found my forever favorite yet.

I was very hesitant to try this. I’ve tried protein powders before and I couldn’t even get two drinks down. This one does not disappoint! It has no chalky taste and dissolves great! I have started adding them into my smoothies that I drink. The chocolate is my favorite when mixed with peanut butter, it tastes like candy!
