The protein leaves a chalky residue in your mouth and is difficult to swallow. There are far superior products out there.

I've tried 4-5 different plant proteins, including the "custom" stuff you see online. This is the best because it is less clumpy, more flavorful, and at a great price point. I highly recommend if you want to get into plant protein.

Not a fan. I take high quality supplements and do my research and thought I would give this a try when I got a sample sent to me. Did not taste very good at all, kinda bitter. Also have me a horrible stomach ache within 5 minutes of drinking. I have a bullet proof stomach so this was pretty odd. I'll stick to Kaged Muscle.

This is a completely independent review. I am very sensitive to taste and have tried just about every plant based protein out there. Most I can't even swallow. Not only is ON the only product that I can feel my body assimilating, the taste is excellent. I look forward to ordering vanilla ON Plant again and will continue on a regular basis.

Amazing! I just wish the 1.5LBS wasn’t the only option.

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.

OMG, I’ve tried some plant based proteins, and this one is my favorite now! Mixes well with water or coconut milk, and has amazing flavor!! I’m going to try chocolate as well!
