Nutiva Organic Hemp Protein Chocolate -- 16 oz
This is ok, not much different from other mixes on the market. It has a very strong dark chocolate flavor.

Just what I was hoping for. Yummy and easy to use!
I purchased this for my breakfast smoothies, and I really enjoy it. It is a little sweeter than my last powder I purchased...but not grossly sweet. You get used to the taste, and it blends right in with yogurt and some fruit.
I was disappointed it didn't come with a scoop, so luckily I still had mine from my last powder I had purchased.
Good quality ingredients, and a great price!

I orginally purchased this product at my local grocery store but it was significantly more expensive than through Vitacost. I read an article from Food Babe about protein shakes and this one stuck out a good one. After trying it and loving it we decided to order it regularly from Vitacost for about $7 less per bottle!
I love that it is all organic and "clean" and most important to me Non-GMO project verified!!
My husband and I have it daily for breakfast. I did find the 3 Tbsp recommendation to be quite gritty with only 8 oz of milk so I decreased it to 2 Tbsp.
I don't get hungry until about 4 hours after drinking this which is reasonable in my opinion.
I will say there is a LOT of fiber in this which is a good thing but I have noticed signifacntly more gas since drinking this, not painful just present. But nothing bad enough that I'm willing to stop using this porduct. My husband has not had this problem.

Doesn't mix well with liquids
It tastes good, makes me feel full, but doesn't mix well after shaking...

Doesn't fill me up like other shakes
I use and have tried MANY different protein shakes. I love them! I always mix them with half of a frozen banana, 5 ice cubes and some water or sometimes some almond milk. This shake doesn't taste great but I can get past that. The problem I had with this shake (and the vanilla because I bought both) was that it did not fill me up or give me the energetic feeling I usually get after protein shakes. In fact it made me sluggish. Good price but I will not be buying again.
