Ok so the protein itself is good but this flavour is a bit light. I guess that means the artificial flavours & sweeteners are less so that's a good thing. But I still expected it to be more chocolat-y & bit sweeter. With water, expect to use less water compared to some other protein powders because it almost feels like drinking an unflavored whey. Overall it's still good though.

This company produces WAY too many different sizes of these things. Go with the 2 punder and maybe a 10 serving envelope for travel or to see how it tastes, the 5 pounder and the 10 pounder. I see absolutely no need for all these different sizes. Most of the flavors are at least decent. The rocky road, cookies and cream, banana cream and chocolate mint so far the only ones I'll be re-ordering. Maybe the strawberry banana because it goes great in oatmeal with strawberries and bananas in it. On that note, it seems to mix differently depending what flavor you choose or maybe how much moisture is in the oatmeal. I've made it and had it taste fantastic, but a lot of the flavors seem not to blend in completely and it's like somebody put a handful of sand in your oatmeal. Maybe if I liked it with a little more moisture in it, things might be different. They all seem to mix well if you use a shaker cup. Stirring by hand never really worked well. I made the mistake of listening to the flavor rating on the Mocha Cappuccino and that thing is nasty. Easily best one I've ever tasted is the Dymatize cafe mocha. It's the only flavor I give a ten. I was hoping it would be close and it wasn't.

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.

PACKETS: Pour 6-8 fl oz of water into a shaker cup, then add one packet of GOLD STANDARD 100% WHEY™. Cover and shake for 25-30 seconds. Alternatively take a sip from a full 16.9 oz. bottle of water to make room for the powder. Add one packet of GOLD STANDARD 100% WHEY™ and shake bottle to mix well until powder dissolves.

 

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. PACKETS: STORE IN A COOL, DRY PLACE. CONTENTS SOLD BY NUMBER OF PACKETS, NOT VOLUME.
