Growing up I was always in athletics and then after hs I was a collegiate athlete in track and field. So I've had my fair share of supplements. I have been sticking to my same protein that I buy at Nutrishop for about 4 years and I loved it! But when I got relocated due to my job the nearest one was 2 hours away and I figured why not give this protein a shot based on the review... welp let me tell you the taste is absolutely HORRIBLE! I just recently bought it so I'm going to assume it works but I'm just writing this review (which I have never done before, so the fact that I'm doing this alone should just warn you how horrible it tastes) to warn people about the disgusting taste✌🏽

Does not get any better and at 60, I have tried many. If you want to add a unique twist and had a good week in the gym, add some Orange Juice to the Vanilla and it tastes like a Orange Dreamsicle.

Hands down best whey protein I've found. Taste just like chocolate milk. I've even used it for hot chocolate and added marshmallows. Very smooth and mixes PERFECTY with just water and blender bottle. I've tested many other proteins to try to find one better and have failed. No more buying what's on sale. It's this or nothing for me when it comes to whey.

Hands down, amazing protein for the best price you can find there. I have tried a few brands and this is by far the best (only topped by "Eat the Bear" brand, ~$1.57/ serving) lactose free protein. It is very difficult to find a protein that works with me as a lot of lactose free products taste grainy or like guck but this one has a nice creamy flavor. I have bought the cappuccino flavor twice and let me tell you this: blend that bad boy with cashew milk, a few dates, a handful of ice and you will forget you are drinking a protein shake and not a frappuccino. I have even baked with it and it comes out great. Highly recommend

Directions For Gold Standard 100% Whey:

SPOON STIRRED: Gold Standard 100% Whey™ is INSTANTIZED. That means if you forgot your shaker cup or don’t have time to get out the blender, you can just add one rounded scoop of Gold Standard 100% Whey™ to a glass filled with 6-8 oz of water or your favorite beverage. Then mix it up with a spoon. Stir for about 20 seconds or until powder is completely dissolved.
TIP: Adjust the intensity of your Gold Standard 100% Whey™ by varying the amount of liquid that you use to prepare it. For a bolder flavor with slightly more body and sweetness, mix each scoop with 4-6 oz of water, milk, or your favorite beverage. For a milder tasting, less sweet shake, use 8-10 oz of liquid per scoop.

SHAKER: Bringing a shaker cup with you to the gym is the best way to get a powerful dose of protein immediately after your workout. Just pour in 6-8 oz of your preferred beverage and then add one rounded scoop of Gold Standard 100% Whey™ to your shaker cup. Cover and shake for 25-30 seconds.

BLENDER: Add one rounded scoop of Gold Standard 100% Whey™ to a blender filled with 6-8 oz of water, nonfat milk, or your favorite beverage. Blend for 20-30 seconds. Then add 1 or 2 ice cubes and blend for an additional 30 seconds.
SHAKE UP YOUR SHAKE: By adding fresh or frozen fruits, peanut butter, flaxseed oil, coconut and other high-energy ingredients, you can transform your shake into a delicious high-protein meal.
STACK YOUR SHAKE: You can make Gold Standard 100% Whey™ an even more powerful recovery product by adding supplements like creatine, glutamine, BCAA, and concentrated carbohydrate powders.

THINK OUTSIDE THE GLASS: Gold Standard 100% Whey™ can be used for more than just protein shakes. Try mixing a scoop into oatmeal, yogurt, or the milk that you pour over your morning breakfast cereal. Better yet, boost the protein content of muffins, cookies, brownies, etc. by adding a scoop or two to your baked goods recipes.

SUGGESTED USE: Consume approximately 1 gram of protein per pound of body weight per day through a combination of high protein foods and protein supplements. For even better results, consume your daily protein allotment over several small meals spread evenly throughout the day.

Warnings: This product contains whey derived from dairy and lecithin (to improve mixability) derived from soybeans. For use as a dietary supplement only. Do not use for weight reduction.
