Natural Factors Vegan Protein Factors™ Vanilla Bean -- 12 oz
Disappointed - no match for Arbonne
I am a huge Vitacost fan and count on it for nearly all of my vitamin needs. No one has better quality, faster, more friendly, hassle-free service. That is for sure. So I will continue to be a fan. However, the one thing I now know I cannot buy here is the protein for my meal replacement shakes - at least not this particular brand. I was recently in a situation where my regular, vegan, pea protein based powder (Arbonne) was out of stock and I had to travel. I knew I could count on Vitacost to be a great resource for a temporary fill-in solution and I was thrilled to find a pea based protein that was vegan, with great added ingredients, low sugar, high protein and a reasonable price. No doubt this product is probably very high quality. But I couldn't get past the taste - or lack therof. When I am replacing two meals a day, the shake has to be at least tolerable and for me, and it was not - at least not when I have been spoiled by the amazing taste of the brand I always use. So, if you are not much into needing a yummy, vanilla, shake taste, then this product may be for you. Otherwise, you might consider others. I will be trying out other pea proten products from Vitacost to see how they compare, in case I'm ever in a situation again where I need to get a temporary replacement for my usual product. All that being said, Vitacost rocks and I know I am a customer for life :)

best tasting protein powder
This is the only protein powder my son likes. He drinks it as a smoothie after a workout and loves it :) He just adds ice and frozen berries. He is lactose intolerant and this is like his milkshake!
