The Name Fits
So far this is probably the best mixing chocolate protein powder I've had. The taste reminded me of the cocoa cereals had as a kid. In hot water this tastes exactly like hot chocolate.
Other brands I've tried in the past Optimum Nutrition (it's been years), TwinLab (within the past year), Scivation (again, it's been years), and Vitacost (within the past year). You can't go wrong with these brands. Find the best deal.
The next product I'll be trying is the Dymatize Elite Whey Protein Isolate which I have waiting.
Regarding the ingredients, I worried about the hydrolyzed wheat gluten. According to some studies it doesn't affect people who suffer from Celiac's Disease which I don't have. However, I do follow a diet that usually doesn't include wheat or anything made from wheat flour. Knowing what percentage of the protein powder is hydrolyzed wheat gluten would give a better idea of the quality.

Love this stuff
The taste is incredible. You could drink this just as a treat it tastes so good! It actually gives me my "chocolate fix"! Mixes up nicely either in blender or shaking vigorously. We like it mixed with soy or almond milk, but it's also good with water.

Worth the purchase!!
I am not typically one to review a product, good or bad, but this product needs the support! Purchased this a couple weeks ago..
1. Mixes better than any other brands (4 or 5) I've had
2. Tastes like brownie batter
3. No Aspertame (bad s#@t)
4. Have seen gains finally and have sustained energy
5. Zip lock bag is ideal for freshness and storage
6. Most supplements and least BS for the $

This has always been my favorite protein mix for taste, consistency and "mixability." Makes an awesome hot chocolate, too (which few protein powders do). Start with just enough hot (but not boiling) water/milk to dissolve the protein powder, then mix/blend in boiling water to complete the mug of deliciousness. Vitacost allows me to have my Matrix for a very reasonable price with automatic monthly delivery monthly because I have my (now healthier) family addicted to it!
