Vitacost Pea Protein Concentrate - Non-GMO -- 16 oz (454 g)
What did you expect?!?
People applaud it's lack of additives and then moan about the taste. I did an analysis on this and 3 other unsweetened protein powders (cost per g of protein, how many calories of product to consume 1 g of protein and sodium per calorie). Sodium was the only area where this product didn't fare too well. It was the highest of the four 2.6 mg per calorie. The taste or lack of didn't bother me. Other powders whether they had fructose or stevia stimulated my appetite and made me want to eat more. I take this along with Vitacost Rice Protein in water. It keeps me going for awhile.

My Favorite Protein
I like this because there is nothing added to it: no sugars and no flavors. I use it in my morning super smoothie. At first I noticed a difference in taste that I didn't think I liked, but not being one to waste food, I continued to use it. After a few times of using it, I don't taste anything but the fruit in my smoothie. I have reordered several times, and will continue to do so.

Not a fan, I found it chalky and very noticeable even in fruit smoothies.
Good value, especially if you get in BOGO free or 1/2 price. Going to try making protein bars with it and see if it tastes better.

great shipping, great value, not so great taste
I bought this to mix up my protein intake. I was using vanilla soy protein from vitacost, which has been good. Then i tried the brown rice protein, unflavored, but it naturally kind of tasted like a marshmallow. So pea protein was next. Done straight up in water the flavor is just too much. I gave it to a bodybuilder friend of mine, maybe he will have better luck. I should have tried it in food, but i was so off put by the taste i didnt want it in my kitchen. I am going to be using chia seeds as protein supp for now, and am about to order some spirulina powder from here. They're both packed with protein.
