Ok, so this was the first time I was able to get this protein. It does the job. Now for flavor, I got double rich chocolate because it has no sucralose but it does affect the flavor. To me the flavor of double rich is 10/10, I drink it with powdered milk and fit it into the macros. Good chocolate flavor but not too sweet. Now Extreme milk chocolate, you feel a kick of good chocolate sweet flavor. Not much else I can say to it, really good chocolate flavor, it almost feels like a sweeter more chocolate version of the double rich chocolate. Not by much but noticeable, I picked both and enjoy both. Now cookies and creme is good as well, the only thing is it's different for everyone and to me it's a bit sweet. My friend tho loves this flavor and I tried it around 4-5 times off his stash. All in all I enjoy the general chocolate flavor of these and will be sticking to them.

  • 10 Rocky Road

Has been my go-to for years. I've found that Rocky Road is my favorite flavor, it's nice and chocolaty, but also a little nutty - almost like a slight hazelnut flavor. I find it mixes well with additional ingredients better than other flavors as well - like bananas, oats, and/or cinnamon. I've been drinking it for years and it hasn't gotten old. Love it.

This is the only protein I drink. It mixes well with water and drinks very well. A lot of protein out there is too sweet for my taste. The other flavor that isn't listed that is very good is chocolate dipped banana.

I generally try to keep a few different flavors on hand. These are some of my favorites. I love that Bodybuilding.com now offers free shipping over 50 bucks because I can pay roughly the same price here as on Amazon, and I'd much rather give you guys my money. ON Protein is the best on the market IMO.

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.
