Energy!!! I don't get much protein in my diet and this product really keeps me energized! I use the vanilla mixed with plain water every morning and it is delicious, too. March 25, 2014
Great taste, easy mixing I have just ordered the ARO whey mostly because I loved the glutamine and preworkout ive used over the past month. I just got this protein two days ago but just based off the great taste and easy mixing I would recommend this to anyone. It is yet to show me its muscle building and recovery capabilities since it is still early on in the time used category but so far the value is great. 20 g of protein per scoop is pretty good. The price is very competitive as well. March 22, 2014
Sweeter than previous vitacost brand Mixes well in a blender and tastes great with peanut butter but it's a lot sweeter than the previous iteration of Vitacost's in-house brand of protein powder. It's nearly too sweet for me but it shouldn't be a problem for most people. March 12, 2014
Good Great value. No idea about the taste, since I tend to mix it with at least 3-4 of the following: blueberries, blackberries, peaches, strawberries, flax seeds, coconut, greek yogurt, bananas, and cocoa powder. Great for breakfast and immediately post workout. Good price and good nutrition chart, which is the important thing. January 16, 2014
It tastes good Proverbs 3:27 says, "Do not withhold good from those to whom it is due, when it is in your power to do it." So I decided to write this now, kind of early. This shake is good. Vitacost did a good job. It kind of tastes like Dymatize shakes do. It isn't too sweet or taste like artificial sweetener. It isn't very thick or very thin. I just tried it right now. If it does the body good, then for the price, it is great- if the physical effects match up then it would be excellent, but it's too soon to tell. I am pretty impressed so far but I wasn't anticipating much either. I think Dymatize shakes are delicious and this matches that pretty close. A great alternative. I also like Met-rx shakes that are very thick but they are meal replacements and have more carbs. You can always add extra powder or less water to get it thick enough for you. It is way more cost effective than all those brands for sure. I thank God for the money to afford this and for all you at Vitacost, and for whoever reads this, God bless you. January 7, 2014
