Vitacost Whey ISO Protein Isolates Chocolate -- 3 lbs (1362 g)
Top Quality Isolate!
This is one of the best quality isolates I have ever tried.
Mixability 10/10: The powder is very fine and extremely easy to mix. You can even mix it in a regular cup with a spoon or fork if you do not have a shaker cup on hand.
Taste 8/10: While I have had better tasting powders, this one ranks up there with the best. It has a nice smooth chocolate flavor and is not bitter or gritty tasting at all. For the limited amounts of ingredients, this protein has a great taste.
Effectiveness 9/10: I use this powder for my post work out shakes and sometimes to sip on during workouts. I could tell a difference in my recovery periods since using this post workout mixed with some simple carbs. It digests easily and does what its supposed to.
Nutrition Profile 10/10: This protein is not laden with fillers and unnecessary ingredients. It has a very high protein:weight ratio meaning that it is very pure and you get what you pay for.
Overall, I am extremely pleased with this product and will be purchasing as soon as they hold the BUY ONE GET ONE FREE promotion again. That is simply a deal you cannot beat anywhere and cannot pass up! Please do the BOGO event on this product again soon Vitacost! I need to restock!

Good Whey Protein
I am not an expert to determine the individual percentages. My standard protein was On Gold standard. The protein does taste good. I do not take the full serving(3 scoops) but take just 2 as i personally don't think I need 50g of protein in a shot.
The protein does taste 'lighter' when compared to ON Gold standard chocolate, so i mix it with lesser water.

Great price for an isolate
I got 6 lbs of this for $25 shipped. Even if it tasted horrible it would still be a great deal. The taste is average. Kinda strange but whatever, I just chug it. It doesn't mix very well at first, but if you let it sit for a minute or two it is fine.
I wouldn't get this protein if taste is a big factor for you, but if you want an isolate at a great price, this is the protein for you.

Cheap and Tasty
Got it pretty cheap and has 50 g protein per serving, so I usually do half servings, so it'll last quite a while. with more like 44 servings.
Tastes good. Dissolves easy. No aspartame.

very good isolate
I split my servings from the 3 scoops of 50g to 1.5 scoops of 25g like some people have commented. It's a good tasting protein, easy to shake up in my blender bottle, i feel full and am making gains by both taking 1.5scoops post workout and also being consistent at the gym of course. I will buy again if there is another BOGO but for now I have about 15lbs of protein stocked up which will last me until summertime.
