ARO-Vitacost Black Series Casein Natural Chocolate -- 2 lb (908 g)
Love this protein
I mix it up at night before bed with some almond milk like a pudding. It makes a nice bowl full with only one 140 calorie scoop. The first container of it I got was more lumpy but the second one was more smooth. The taste is so good that even if there are lumps, they don't bother me. If I use it during the day, it seems to keep my hunger at bay longer than the protein powders that aren't Casein.

Not a great protein powder
I bought this because it was a cheap alternative to Dymatize XL Elite. Not only did I not like that taste, but is insanely clumpy and impossible to mix. I typically mix Casein in with greek yogurt of cottage cheese before bed and that is not possible with this product. You get powdery clumps.

I was excited to try it but I was super bummed when I could not mix it in my shaker cup! It does not mix well AT ALL, it gets all clumpy. The natural chocolate taste is just fine, but the clumps kind of distract from the taste. $20 was a great price for 2lbs of awesome casein, so I'm happy about that, but the real downfall is that I can't mix it in my shaker cup. I tried a spoon too and it didn't work. I don't know if a blender would work, but I don't have one to try it out. It leaves a bit of a weird texture on my tongue, but I'm sure it's great quality casein especially for the price. I guess you get what you paid for. I just really wish it mixed better. If it did I'm sure it would be a 5, but mixing is crucial for me because I don't own a blender. I was on the verge of rating this a 4 as is but I can't believe all the clumps I have in my throat right now. What's great though is that they fill the container to the top (kind of hard to find the scooper) but that's something different, although it may be that way because it's such a tiny looking container.

This is a top ten (10) protien!
This is a GREAT casein protien. Taken at night it is extremely effective with the 'slow release'. As a bonus, the chocolate flavor is amazing and can easily take the place of slice of chocolate cake for desert. It is a great way to end the day.
