I have tried a number of plant based protein powders, and they always have a distinct gross taste and feel really gritty. I gave up looking until I came across ON version and was excited to give it a go, since all their protein powders taste awesome. This was no exception. I usually have mine with coconut milk and blend with berries and milled seeds etc. (and even then other plant based protein powders taste awful!). ON vanilla flavour is lovely, creamy tasting and not at all gritty. No bad aftertaste, just really pleasant. I can even comfortably drink it with coconut milk alone. I'm looking forward to trying the berry one next and so glad to have finally found a quality dairy free powder I can enjoy

Blends well, which is rare for a vegan protein powder. Unfortunately all I can taste is stevia. I was really hoping to like this too, since their chocolate whey protein was by far my favourite before I went vegan.

Product is great, much healthier alternative to whey protein. While it doesn't taste as rich of a chocolate flavor, and has a bit dryer consistency mixed with either milk or water, it does exactly what it's for. I'm lactose intolerant and using this with either water or lactose-free milk is perfect for me. No more stomach aches or sick feeling. I highly recommend this, but know it's not going to be as rich of a chocolate flavor as the traditional gold standard whey.

The flavor is ok. Powder gets everywhere if not mindful.

I had high hopes for this new vegan protein powder. It was a very okay flavor and product. I didn’t realize how few servings you got until after I ordered it, and the price is way higher than the other one I order. Didn’t mix well and the taste was a little weird. I’ll stick to veggie elite.

Bad for delivery in India but excellent on health and energy benefits. Tastes good. But I am left thinking how do I order this to India. In my first purchase of this item, it cost me 3500 INR worth of customs duty alone over and above the 6900 INR 2 box cost. That is quite exorbitant. should inform its customers that expect pocket burning experience if shipping international. Having narrated my ordeal about delivery costs, I must say this product is tremendous. Best for allergic people looking to bulk up.

I picked up Gold Standard 100% Plant and Vega Sport Plant Protein. The Gold standard seems to be comparable (good) quality but loses a step in the taste category. Gold Standard had more of a chalky taste than the Vega Sport. Not talking you out of it. Buy both and make your own judgement

I have tried a ton of plant proteins and while I have found a couple that are palatable, I don't like any of them much. Decided to try out this one and HELL YEAH. This is definitely an awesome product (surprise, surprise since ON rocks). Really good, creamy flavor even with water. None of that gritty, dirt-like chalk-like taste or whatever it is most plant proteins have. I love that it has BCAA's and all my aminos and 24g per scoop is pretty good. Have been taking this twice a day for about a week and I am definitely sticking with this one and want to try the chocolate.

This is the best tasting plant protein I have tried, and it doesn’t contain any garbage or artificial ingredients. Highly recommended.

This is an awesome product. I've been working out- off and on- for a while, always going for a whey protein shake as a post. The lethargic, bloated feeling was something I just accepted as part of the diet. Plant protein digests so much easier for me, and the best part is- i'M STILL HUNGRY AFTERWARD! Yay. No more missed meals after a great workout. I love this stuff, man. I'm not picky about taste. The grittiness is bearable- a menial con. I will be buying some more sir. I recommend it to those who are looking to switch things up. It's worth the extra cheese. I am not a robot.
