Vitacost Pea Protein Concentrate - Non-GMO -- 16 oz (454 g)
Good Product, Stinky but okay
I use this powder with Vanilla + Nuts Milk + Coffee powder and the taste is great :)
The reason that I give it 3 stars is because it did not come with a measuring scoop.

Takes some getting used to
As a vegan, I find it challenging to get enough protein. Pea protein is a great option. I am a big fan of the old Olympian Labs product (red topped canister). Unfortunately, that's the old formula and it's $$$.
I tried this product when it was on a 2 for 1 special.
I don't do smoothies so taste is important to me. I could eat the Olympian product straight. This product has an off-putting greyish/brown color that's tough to get past and a stronger taste than Olympian. However, with enough vanilla extract and sweetener, it's not too bad. The price per serving is very good.

Good source of protein
I tried this product as an alternative to whey protein, and I'm impressed so far. It doesn't make me gassy, which is a plus. The slight "pea" taste is fairly easy to disguise in a smoothie.

Taste is not everything
People who criticize this product for the taste or smell must realize this is a protein concentrate and not candy. If you are looking for a powder that you can mix up with water and taste like cookies and ice cream, this product is NOT for you, and you should expect to spend more than $9 /pound for something like that.
This product has a great protein concentration (14 gr of protein on a 18 gr serving) and it works great when mixed up with other stuff that tastes good, like in a fruit smoothie for example.

Great product and even better price!
I'm a huge fan of this protein powder, I take it every morning in my smoothie. Some people say it has a chalky taste and feel to it, I don't get that at all I usually load up my smoothie with tons of flavors and blend it for at least 2-3 minutes so that everything gets really smooth and incorporated and I think that should take care of the "chalkyness". At 14 grams of protein per servings and about 30 servings per container, you can't go wrong and at that price. . Fantastic! Easy to digest, no bloating like I've experienced with other brands.. it's great!
