i ordered this by mistake, thinking it was WOW's protein isolate (which is THE BEST protein supplement on the market. Have been using it consistently for close to a decade.) This stuff is loaded with Stevia, which is arguably as bad for your body as sugar or corn syrup. This product is insanely sweet, and it stays with you for a while afterwards. I can't believe I blew $100 and now have to choke down 10lbs of this candy. Do not order this unless you have a sweet tooth and really care how your supplements taste.

Everything you need, none of the extra crap. Great price per serving. Not really sweet, but definitely sweet enough, can taste the real cacao. Excellent product, mixes well also. Will buy again. Only wish it was Non-GMO verified like the NOW Whey Isolate is. Put good in, get good out.

i bought the 10lbs. bag and so far {2 weeks} I love the product it has just what I need and could not get a better deal for the price. rated 8 for flavor because you can taste the xylitol pretty good, but it does not make the product taste bad.

Long story short, this is one of my top 3 favorite whey protein powders. I love the fact that this one is considered "clean", based on the ingredients list. It has more calories than ON, and some of my other favorites, but it tastes great and mixes well in my Nutribullet. Will buy this one again, as well as other NOW products.

This protein has it all: a good amino acid profile, reinforced with L-Glutamine, has a pretty good taste, and a pretty decent price. The only thing is that the main source isn't whey isolate, (it's whey concentrate), but if you need a good protein to supplement your diet on a budget. Here you go.

Protein macros aren't as good but I like the non artificial indegrients and seems to work just as good as any other honestly. It is just powder and tastes good

We have all tried 10000's of different proteins, but this is one of the best Chocolate only proteins I've had. Usually you mix with water and shake it up and we all manage to get it down, but it's not like we really enjoy or look forward to drinking it, but I can actually say I do not mind drinking this mixed with water only. Before I tried NOWs Chocolate, I was using Beverly and they are know for their protein flavors, but I now prefer to drink NOWs over theirs.

So far, this is the best protein powder I've had (Universal, ON, Met-RX, SNI, probably more I can't remember). It mixes easily with water and/or milk. Tastes great. Not just great for a protein powder, but both vanilla and chocolate tastes really good. And, most importantly for me, it doesn't contain any artificial ingredients. That means no gut issues or protein *****. I take in about 200g of protein/day (4 shakes, 2 scoops/shake). This powder comes without maltilol, sucralose, sucrose or aspertame. For anyone that reads past the macros in the nutrition profile, this is the protein powder for you.

If you are trying to avoid artificial ingredients in your protein powder - this is a much better tasting protein than ON Natural Whey (Vanilla). Xylitol has some concerns but since its only 1-2g per serving, it's not something I'm worried about. This is my go-to protein until another artificial-free powder is released.
