These are tasty but not overly sweet and they don't use artificial sweeteners - unless you consider Stevia extract to be artificial. Stevia doesn't cause the gut biome upset that I experienced with those using sucralose, so I plan on staying with this whey supplement for the forseeable future.

Love this taste! I blend it with coconut milk and it taste delicious! Since now Im gonna order only that one!

I love this protein! I can't stand the taste of sucralose, splenda etc, and protein without artificial sweeteners can be hard to find. The chocolate flavor is good and chocolaty, almost like melted chocolate ice cream. Not as sweet as others, but that's what I was looking for. I wouldn't recommend mixing it with water, because it comes out pretty thin and bland. But mixed up thick with milk or soymilk, it's delicious!

Essentially flavorless and not sweet at all... but it isn't nasty either. You'll be happy if you understand this.

Vanilla taste great with milk. It's natural with good ingredients, no artificial stuff like sucralose and maltodextrin. Low sugar, sodium, and cholesterol. This is whey protein concentrate not isolate so its prefect for my goals. Little expensive but you pay for what you get. I have nothing bad to say about this product.

Switched to this probably two years ago to get away from Sucralose. I have now gotten to where I can't stand the taste of anything that uses sucralose or aspartame for sweetener anymore. I mix a scoop of this with a 1/2 cup of whole oats and a little bit of ice and water in a blender -and that has been my breakfast everyday for almost two years. May not be for everyone but its a pretty clean breakfast and to me it has become absolutely delicious.

Seemed less junky than the original protein but def not as good tasting. Thought I could get used to it but I can't. It does help adding less liquid but still blah. I used almond milk and it's like a chocolate milkshake but that's added calories and can an inconvenience if on the run. IT just tastes very fake and YOU KNOW you are drinking a whey shake. I am looking for others or will go back to all the flavors they had with the original ON products.

I have tried a lot of natural whey protein and I thought they were pretty good.This is by far the number 1.

This protein is one of my favorites and I continue to use it! Not only do the flavors taste great with water or milk but you definitely see results when used properly and consistently. I highly recommend trying this product and using it to your benefit, you will see great results.

Really good for a natural whey. Great for the price. I've gone through a couple of bottles of the chocolate... Mix it with whole milk though... It's not very thick like most proteins; not so great mixed with water..

Optimum is always my choice for protein supplementation. Even though, I go for the natural branch to avoid artificial colors, flavors and sweeteners. In my opinion, chocolate has to be the best tasting when mixed with water or milk. As for vanilla, the taste when mixed with water is alright, but with milk is sure better.
