Iron-Tek Essential Natural Protein Vanilla Cake -- 1.9 lbs
Good but higher carb
Typically I like to get 5gm of Carbs or less in my protein shake, but the taste reviews encouraged me to try this one.
Mixes fairly well with water in my blender ball container, so no complaints there.
Taste is good but it should be for having 9gm of carbs, 8 of which are sugar. Overall, I'd say this is worth using again, but I prefer lower carbs and I've had better tastes in stevia-oriented powders.

Works, but doesn't taste good
Iron Tek's "Essential Proteins" are really high quality proteins, but the "vanilla cake" does not taste all that great. The "Cookies and Cream" was far better flavor and was perfect with water. The "vanilla cake" is bland and not much better in flavor than many other whey proteins. Get the "Cookies and Cream" flavor if you want good taste. Protein quality in both is equal though--both are excellent and I believe the best value of all the proteins sold on Vitacost

This protein powder really does taste like Vanilla Cake. Makes a great smoothie with just water. It is 135 calories though. If you are restricting your caloric intake I reccomend the Jarrow Unflavored Whey at 85 calories. Note that the amount of protein in the Jarrow whey appears less but the scoop is larger in the IronTek product- so I believe the even out. This powder does provide two sources of protein. I blend it up in water with ice and frozen wild blueberries- delish!

Great Protein Powder
This is a great product. Easily blends and with multiple sources of protein it is easily absorbed and put to work quickly.
Its also low in fats and sugars! Great for muscle building when your trying to slim down.
I have used this product for several years and not found any bloating or chalky after taste.
