    in the 7 years I have been lifting especially these last 3 years I’ve been in the military I’ve tried many, many, many protein powders and none can compare to the ease of mixing and great taste this powder gives!

    DISGUSTING FORMULA CHANGE — WAS 5 STARS NOW 1 STAR, January 15, 2015

    UPDATE SEP 22 2015: CHANGE TO 1 STAR FROM 5

    Just opened my latest batch of the Vanilla Ice Cream flavor, and it is absolutely DISGUSTING. Today the formerly-creamy shake I made was so thick it was actually chewable, and so sickeningly sweet it made me sick to my stomach to even drink part of it. Several minutes later the sick sweet taste was still in my mouth making me gag. It turns out ON has changed the formula and it looks like they added Sucralose to this flavor among other changes. There are many recent complaints about widespread formula changes online, so buyer beware.

    You can see in the video just how thick it is. This drink is just 8oz cashew milk and 2 scoops of the Vanilla Ice Cream whey powder, mixed in a blender cup. Notice how thick it is when poured and how it sticks to the side of the blender cup. It took the spray nozzle around ten seconds just to break that clump apart. Do you want that nasty stuff in your stomach? Yesterday I made the exact same drink with my previous batch of powder and it was perfectly smooth and creamy just like milk, today it is toxic waste.

    From reading online it looks like this is the latest casualty of ON’s marketing department changing their formulas across the board. Look up the reviews for their Naturally Flavored Vanilla protein to see what is happening. This is the single largest turnaround I have ever experienced in a product. The new product is disgusting, there is no other word for it.

    RECOMMENDATION: DO NOT BUY THIS BRAND ANY LONGER.

    ORIGINAL REVIEW: (5 stars)

    I’ve been using Optimum Nutrition’s protein powder off and on for a few years now. “Off and on” because I kept aggravating old injuries when exercising, having to take extended time off, and practically starting all over again, wash, rinse, repeat. I started using this when I first starting lifting weights and it is simply amazing. The consistency is very fine, and when I’ve showed friends a small ziploc bag of it they have all remarked at how finely grained the powder actually is. Though it is marketed as a spoon-stirrable powder, I wasn’t able to get it to work that way myself. Then again, I put 2 full scoops into 6-8oz of liquid to get the flavor and consistency I want, so maybe it was just too much. Regardless, while that may sound strong (and it is a good strong flavor at that concentration) it is NOT chunky, chalky, or grainy at all. The powder is shockingly good at dissolving in a quality shaker cup (with the mesh ball inside), and the double chocolate flavor was so good that it tasted just fine to me with 2 scoops in 6oz of cold water shaken up.

    Last time I ordered it however I decided to give the vanilla ice cream flavor a try. I’d been die-hard on the double chocolate for several years, but when I got a small bullet-style blender I found it really restricts the kind of protein drinks you can make. You can have any flavor you want as long as its chocolate or chocolate-plus-something. So I bought a 1lb container of vanilla ice cream as a cheap test figuring it couldn’t hurt and would probably be good enough that even if I didn’t like it I could tolerate it for a little while until it ran out.

    I was greatly surprised at how good it actually tasted — far better than the chocolate in fact, and I’m a die-hard chocoholic! I never blended it with water because I’ve since switched to almond milk, almond-coconut milk blend, or even cashew milk, all of which run in the 30-45 calorie range for 8oz and add so much creaminess and a nice mild nutty flavor that really enhances the drink. Put 8oz of the nut milk into the bullet blender with 2 scoops of powder and most of a banana, and you have an incredibly delicious drink with nearly 50g of protein and all the nutrition of a banana for about 300 deliciously smooth and creamy calories or so.

    And the best part is there are so many more things you can mix with it because the vanilla flavor, while sweet and tasty on its own, blends very well with other flavors as well. Want chocolate? Sprinkle in a bit of chocolate powder, or a little gourmet hot chocolate powder, or a small bit of chocolate pudding powder, or if you don’t mind the calories toss in a cold Jello pudding pack of your choice and blend it right up — so many more options than plain chocolate protein powder provides. Or you can add a fruit medley for a completely different drink — fresh, or frozen to replace the ice in the blender for an icy smoothie. Put in a teaspoon or two of instant coffee of the flavor of your choice to add a flavored caffeine kick. Or put in a spoonful of powdered peanut butter, very low-cal and tastes just like 250 calories of the real deal, and if you add in the chocolate you…

    Mrs. Boyer here. Ordered this product as a supplement during my first pregnancy and have used it as a primary source of protein since meat became completely revulsive–and a girl can only eat so many eggs. Some protein powders are sickly sweet, others are chalky, others don’t mix well in water, and some cause all kinds of stomach issues. This product has none of that. Mixes easily in water and goes down smoothly. Subtle taste with no icky fake sweet taste. Helps me get the protein I need to stay healthy & keeps me full for hours. I use it to make a shake, mixed in with oatmeal in the morning, mixed with yogurt for a snack, and have even used it when baking to help amp up the nutrition of my baked goods. Totally satisfied. Have shared this product with my trainer at the gym, who gave rave reviews, and ended up providing samples to several other of the staff there. They are talking about switching out the protein supplement currently sold at my gym with this product, that’s how much they love it! And my husband is totally on board too–he now keeps a jug at the office. Love, love, love this product. Have tried in vanilla ice cream & double chocolate. Both flavors are delicious. Highly recommend!
