Flavor Name: Tropical PunchSize: 5 PoundPackage Type: Standard Packaging Verified Purchase
I've been drinking ON Protein Powder and building muscle-children for the last five years, thus I am an expert on the subject.

BROTIP#1: Always go for the 5LBer. Best deal and you wouldn't want 10 lbs of protein powder unless you are ordering Rocky Road or Graham-Cracker R.I.P.

I have sampled almost all flavors of ON and made a professional excel chart for you at home to enjoy. Note everything is mixed with water, cause milk doesn't refrigerate well in my sweaty gym-bag.

GOD-Tier: Could drink everyday forever and be satisfied:
Rocky Road: You can almost taste marshmallows in your protein, these guys are flavor wizards.
*Graham-Cracker R.I.P

Nice Tier: I'd recommend these to a friend if they were branching out after chocolate.
Mocha Cappuccino: Once I tried mixing this with black coffee, tasted unfortunate.
Cookies and Cream: Hallmark of protein flavors since the dawn of mankind.
Chocolate Mint: Probably your safest bet ever, didn't need to read my review to figure that out.
Chocolate Coconut: Tastes like hot cocoa powder mixed with a little coconut, great powder to change things up a bit before back to Rocky Road.

BROTIP #2: If you are mixing without a mixer or a blender, here's how you channel McGuyver and feed your muscle-children. Step 1, add a little bit of water to the cup before adding your protein in. Thats it, it helps.

Ok Tier: It won't make you puke, but you aren't leaving a good tip (Perhaps just the tip).
Malt chocolate: Not enough malt, its chocolate + a palette confuser
Double Rich Chocolate: Too much chocolate and it tastes like poo-people chocolate that you buy in bulk after valentine's day cause nobody loves you.

Flavor Name: Double Rich ChocolateSize: 5 PoundPackage Type: Standard Packaging
As a fitness enthusiast and a Science guy, I am always curious to find the real value of a supplement. What works and what does not work. More importantly, I believe the analysis of a product should be based on strong scientific knowledge base, combined with good old fashion practical use of the product, and only then one should come down to the final conclusion.

This product review and analysis was conducted based on 3 parameters

A. Constituents: What comes in the box, the real value of the product
B. Assimilation: How does this product goes down in your system, how much of it will your body assimilate
C. Usability : Long term usability and and effects.

I believe this is one of the best supplements available in the market today. The Question is Why?

1. The Quality of protein. Since its manufactured by Glanbia (who owns Optimum nutrition), this product is coming straight from the manufacturer. This is a BIG factor, 90% of the protein supplement companies source their raw materials from third parties, often importing them from third world countries.

100 grams of Whey protein isolate from one source is NOT equal to the 100 gram Whey protein isolate from another. Inferior resources usually have high level of Heavy metals and cattle Hormones. This has been elucidated from recent tests and published widely in the consumer reports. ON aced this report with minimum levels of such harmful residues. Reason is simple, they make their own whey in a plant which has to abide all regulations under US law.

Just for the point of reference. I am from India, and therefore know first hand how many poorly regulated cheese plants export their whey to Europe and US. So make sure your Whey protein is coming from Whey extracted in the US!!

One thing that you have to watch out for when buying whey isolate is if its pure 100% Whey isolate. The issue here is that if you are paying for 100% whey isolate (Its much more expensive to produce and sell), make sure you are getting what you pay for. For most people a blend is what you should be buying. I buy this along with this weight-loss supplement for my workout and fat loss regimen. Combining both has really helped me reach my long-term goals.

This is one of the best protein supplements that I have found, based on price, nutrition and quality of the protein.

The last important part when reviewing a protein powder, is solubility, and taste. I found that this was one of the best tasting protein powders I could buy. When its something you take after every workout, you definitely want it to taste good.

Flavor Name: Double Rich ChocolateSize: 5 PoundPackage Type: Standard Packaging
I've done a lot of homework on different protein supplements, and found that ON is one of the best out there. I have attached the lab results of their label claims vs. actual ingredient, and it is more accurate than its peers.

Beyond that, this is one of the best tasting low carb/fat protein shakes out there. I dont find it too sweet at all and I can handle taking it every day for weeks and weeks without getting bored of the flavor. One thing I do know about flavors is that opinion highly varies between people, but you will find a ON gold standard whey that you love. Rocky Road/ Extreme milk chocolate/ Chocolate/ Double rich are all just chocolate variants, so start off buying a small container until you find the one you like the most!

I start my workouts off with a serving of Alpha Gx7 Pre-workout - Watermelon Flavor when i am on the way to the gym, approx. 15-20 mins before my workout. I bring a bag full of ON gold standard whey with me to the gym so when im finished my workout, I can immediately get a hit of protein to begin the process of muscle building as soon as possible!

DO NOT believe someone when they say "x flavor is the best!" and then go off and buy the 5lb tub and have to choke down something you hate. Test it out for yourself!

I would also like to note I am a normal guy, not a crazy fitness freak, so my suggestions are really for anybody to follow! If anybody is wondering ive just followed stronglifts 5x5.
