This protein is amazing! I have tried a lot of different protein powders and I have yet to find one that blends as well or tastes as good as this one. The Double Rich Chocolate and Mocha Cappuccino are perfect for anyone who does not like super sweet drinks. The double rich chocolate reminds me a lot of Ovaltine! Highly recommend.

I have been using this product for three months now. The taste is great and it is very easy to drink. It mixes just right and goes down smooth. It's like having a chocolate milk shake. The flavor is good when mixing it with cold water, almond milk, or regular milk. Plus the 24 grams of protein along with the glutamine and BCAAs at a low calorie count is great, especially if you are shredding.

My go to when it is bulking season. It is a bit higher in calories with more carbs and fats. Tastes the best out of all the protein powders as well. A solid overall choice as long your goal isn't to get single digit body fat.

The Strawberry Milkshake flavor tastes good either with water or almond milk. A post-workout protein shake with banana and unsweetened almond milk is my fav combo. This one is a high-carb whey protein. The Chocolate Milkshake flavor tastes better along with L-glutamine.

Milk chocolatey and mixes flawlessly in milk or water. Like all isolates it's a bit on the thin side, but that's to be expected with the super clean profile. Speaking of profiles, ISO-100 has one of the best! The transparent formula is made up of ultra-pure, fast-digesting whey protein isolate that's hydrolyzed to support maximum muscle growth. There are NO artificial colors or flavors to be found anywhere. I know everyone says pretty much the same thing but ISO-100 really is an outstanding product that's worth having on your supplement shelf at all times.

Hands down the best whey protein isolate I have ever consumed. No filler in this powder, just pure protein with low sugar and great taste. Every flavor I have tried so far has tasted great in water, even the vanilla. Mixes really smooth and doesn't give me bloat or gas. I will not stray from this product and I hope Hydrolize keeps this formula.

All the flavors I've tried are excellent!! Best protein powder and well worth the money. They almost taste like dessert.

I've been using this supplement over 5 months now. It gave me maximum muscle growth due to the combination of micellar casein and whey protein. The best combination that I saw ever. Tastes more awesome than I expected.

I received Muscle Tech Nitro-Tech 100% Whey Gold as a free sample. I switched from my normal to the free sample and was very surprised by the increase in energy, mixture, and great taste. I took the recommended dosage throughout the day and after my workouts. The first two weeks my muscle recovery times decreased and I have gained lean muscle mass. This is by far the best whey I have tried in 10 years and I plan to keep using it after my sample is gone. Another great product by Muscle Tech.

MuscleTech really nailed it with 100% Whey Gold. The Double Rich Chocolate is excellent. Vanilla Funnel Cake is good and satisfies my sweet tooth, but I find I tend gravitate towards the Double Rich Chocolate. Like most supplements I always hope I am getting high quality for a fair price and I believe that is the case with 100% Whey Gold. Great tasting bang for the buck.

I use this powder about three times daily. It works for both pre- and post-workout protein. I really like the flavors as the Cookies and Cream and Vanilla flavors can really start to grow on you. I use this sometimes in the midafternoon in lieu of a snack. I am in my car a lot for work and don't always have the time to sit down with a proper snack before a client meeting. So this is an easy alternative as you only need to add about 8oz. of water. Another item I ALWAYS have on me or quick access to.

I've had other protein flavors that were just godawful and I ended up not using, ultimately wasting my money. This on the other hand, I can take consistently and not get tired of it. So if you're one of those picky people like me, you'll probably like this. And aside from the flavor, you get a lot of essentials along with it such as creatine and branched-chain amino acids, so this is really a bang for your buck, if you ask me.

I absolutely love the Stacked protein! It has a ton of protein (more than any shake or powder mix have ever used). It also has other supplements to keep your energy up and keep you full. I find that I can have a shake for a meal and not be hungry after! I love their options for the protein. You can get the regular, the lean for weight loss, or the mass gainer for muscle gain!

Stacked Protein is definitely on point with the taste. For those of us who take protein powder daily, this is especially important. 25 grams of protein per serving, high-quality protein sources, digestive enzymes for absorption, and good price per serving. This is a staple protein in my rotation.

Just started using the casein at night and I am impressed. No hunger before bedtime for me and it seems to be working great. Just ordered a bigger size the other day.

It's a great product coming from a good company. If you take a look the first ingredient is micellar casein. You get 9 grams of essential amino acids and 24 grams of protein. I like to take this right before bed cause it's known as a slow-digesting protein so it's feeding my muscles slowly while I'm sleeping.

Bodybuilding.com's Signature Whey - particularly the Chocolate flavor - is absolutely amazing! I am very partial to whey isolate, but when given the opportunity to try the Signature Whey, I don't plan on going back. The taste is amazing. It mixes well. It sits well (and this is coming from a person who typically has difficulty with the whey protein blends). I feel really good about using this product because I can actually feel my body receiving good things. It gives me peace of mind to know I'm using a good product.

I’ve been using the same protein for years now. However, after trying this powder, I will be making the switch! To start, the flavor is very unique. Most protein powders have that artificial chocolate taste, which don’t get me wrong, they’re great. Bodybuilding.com has more of that natural cocoa flavor which is incredible. Not too sweet, and I am really excited to try some baking with this product. As for the nutrition, you can’t really complain with 25 grams of protein, 2 grams of fat, and 3 grams of carb per serving. Especially if you’re like me and use protein powder for strictly post-workout! Overall, this product is the BEST bang for your buck and can work for any nutrition plan suiting anybody’s needs!

I have tried every Cellucor COR-Performance Whey, and Cookies N' Cream is my favorite! There are literally itty-bitty cookie-like pieces in it! I don't know how they do it... but if you blend this protein powder with a handful of ice cubes and vanilla almond milk, you'll be on cloud nine.

I've been using Cellucor's whey protein for the last 5 months and really like it! The taste is AWESOME! I've had people ask me if the protein is chalky, and it isn't! I have a tub and a half left, and definitely will be ordering more once I get low again.
