With only 44% of the calories actually coming from protein, marketing this product as a "protein" powder seems disingenuous - it would be more suited as meal replacement than protein supplementation. It also contains a lot of fillers, including *corn syrup solids*. A deeper look reveals this product for what it is - a fluffed up, misleadingly marketed container for stretching expensive proteins with cheap fillers.
Let's look at the stats, comparing value as of 3/22/2014:
Syntha-6: 48 servings of 22g protein (currently $50) = ***21.3 g / dollar***
Optimum: 74 servings of 24g protein (currently $58) = ***30.6 g / dollar***
Now what looks like a better deal? Especially considering all the other gunk you have to consume to get those protein calories with Syntha-6. Don't make my mistake if you are looking for a good extra source of protein!

I purchased a 2.91 pound jug of "Chocolate Milkshake." I tried it with milk and it was good but really creamy. With trepidation, I tried it with nothing but water... and found that it was DELICIOUS, especially if you add a few ice cubes. Not only is it delicious, it also keeps me full for hours! This stuff is so good, it's the first jug of protein powder I've ever actually FINISHED!
I just ordered two more jugs: chocolate, and "Vanilla Ice Cream." A few minutes ago I took a scoop of the vanilla in 5 ounces of water... and it tastes exactly like melty vanilla ice cream. It is sooo delicious, perhaps even moreso than the chocolate! It definitely has a sweeter taste -- it was so sweet that I had to check the label to confirm that, yep, it still has only 2 grams of sugar. SO good.
I drink this stuff every day. I usually shake up a couple scoops with 10 ounces of water before I leave the house (note: a good shaker bottle is a necessity), and have it along with a piece of fruit for carbs. It keeps me full to the point that I have to remind myself when it's time for lunch! I generally drink more on weight-lifting days, and if it's near bedtime and I realize my protein intake was low for the day, I'll make a quick shake with one scoop.
My muscles have definitely felt fuller since I've started drinking this regularly, and my strength has gone up, and my body weight has gone down.

I've been trying a lot of different protein powders lately. I haven't been discriminating regarding the protein source (as long as it's vegetarian), although I have to admit that dairy-based supplements have been my favorites. It's thus no surprise that I liked this one a lot, since it's based on whey and casein.
Prepared as directed, this is pretty thick. I used 6 ounces of vanilla almond milk (had an open container I needed to use up, so why not?). If you wanted something a little thinner, you could just add more liquid. Despite the fact that this was thick, it was not chalky. I used an immersion blender to mix it, though, and I think you'd have the best luck that way (no clumps).
I love that it has 25 grams of protein. I'm pleased that it has some fiber, although I've tried other similar products with more fiber. (This is in the middle of the pack when it comes to fiber.) Because this is dairy-based, it has a fair amount of calcium, as well. I think I prefer the simple formulation here to some of the products I've tried lately that try to incorporate too many things (i.e., the ones with vitamins and greens and probiotics, etc., don't taste quite as good and aren't as smooth in texture). It's also low in sodium, which is great.
This may not be the best product for people with allergies (contains milk and soy and is manufactured on equipment that processes a number of other allergens), but that's not an issue for me. It's vegetarian but not vegan.
And finally, the taste. I could definitely taste the chocolate and it was really good. There was just a hint of an artificial sweetener aftertaste (this has both sucralose and acesulfame potassium).Read more ›

Fantastic tasting protein powder. It is 200 cal for 22g of protein which is a little high on the cal/protein ration vs some other products, but for variety it hits the spot!Published 23 hours ago by T. Bourgeois
It's great for the price. If you don't know what flavor to get just go for the chocolate. I got the strawberry milkshake, it taste decent but it gets old quick.Published 1 day ago by Maiya
