Review for: Double Rich Chocolate
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: Cookies N' Cream
one of my favorite proteins I really love, the taste is super good and I saw results super fast, this protein I loved and tried several flavors and several proteins but it was the one that I liked the most, I recommend it with closed eyes, and the price is also good

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.

This protein powder is AMAZING!!! I've tried a couple different brands and nothing blends and mixes as smoothly as Optimum Nutrition! Some other powders still taste kind of grainy after mixing and you are acutely aware that you are drinking a powder, but that is not at all the case with this one! Every time I venture away from it to try something new, I regret it and come straight back to this one. It makes getting more protein into my daily diet SO much easier!

While I prefer Cellucor protein, this is definitely my next choice. The chocolate flavor is very rich, but it tastes good. It is a little bit harder to shake in than the Cellucor. All in all, there is a reason that this is the best protein on the market. It's blend is unmatched and it provides a lot of great stuff that will help you gain muscle and workout harder. Plus there are usually sales for it, which is always awesome!

I bought the chocolate flavor per my boyfriend's recommendation and I love it. It comes with so much for the price that it lasted me so long it expired after a year (only with a few shakes left but still) and I had to throw the remainder out. Considering I only have a daily or every other day shake I'd say it's a really good deal for the amount. Mix it with a little almond milk, ice, and a banana and it's like dessert!

Review for: Delicious Strawberry
I love this stuff. I usually get in the morning but sometimes I drink it after I workout. I left and mix it with milk and make my own kind of strawberry milk but it makes us with a water well too

My Husband and I use Whey prior to a workout to build energy and muscle mass. It has a good amount of protein in it. It is expensive from our local GNC so we typically buy online or when the gym is running a special. It comes in many flavors, tastes quite pleasant and is filling. It is a stable for anyone that works out or does sustained running would recommend

Bay far the best tasting protein powder by miles! My boyfriend is a personal trainer and nutritionist of 11 years and he was the one who got me onto this protein. He swears by it.

I tried to sell recently as a friend recommended it to me I'm not really into protein powders as far as I can tell it does a it does what it's supposed to do when compared to other brands. A little pricey but not bad when you're shopping for protein powder taste terrible probably won't use again but for other people that are in the protein powders I would recommend
