The Seller: All Star Health is great to deal with. My Brother-in-law and I have used them many times. They ship relatively quick (3-5 days). They always have competitive prices. Until they recently bumped their price on the 10lb container it was the cheapest buy on the net. Now 2 5lb containers are the cheapest way to go.

The Product: I have tried Vanilla and Cocoa. Per serving Vanilla has 18 grams to Cocoa's 16 grams of protein. Both Mix INCREDIBLY well. I have a shaker cup and do not use it with this stuff. I use a spoon. Thats it. Vanilla tastes really good. Compared to other brands this is the best vanilla I have had that is not loaded with fat and other junk. The Cocoa is my favorite. It was not at first, It is not Chocolate. It is Cocoa. There is a distinct difference. It came to be my favorite, however, when I warmed up the water in the microwave for about a minute and a half and then added the protein. It tastes just like hot chocolate and mixes even better in the hot water. So now every protein shake is like a large glass of hot cocoa, and when you live in Minnesota, thats a really great thing :). There are a bunch of good amino acids in all of these flavors. I really honestly have nothing bad to say about this product. The only annoyance is that it appears like everyone is steadily raising the price on this stuff. I purchased 10 lbs from one place online for $47 within the last year. The next time I went to the website it was $67. I went to all star with my last purchase and the 10lb tub was $51. Now it is in the 60's. Even at the price it is now, the product is all I buy as far as protein supplements go.

Summary: You will not be disappointed.

This product has a few advantages over the Muscle Milk Chocolate. More protein (20g vs 15g per scoop) & fewer calories per scoop.(110 vs. 150 per scoop)
The flavor is not as good as the Muscle Milk chocolate powder. It is generally lighter in texture and I think has a hint of coco-nutty flavor. The aroma of the powder is pretty powerful to overwhelming. In my opinion, Muscle Milk Chocolate has set the bar pretty high for any/all chocolate protein powder drinks.

The regular Muscle Milk has tons of extra Vitamins and Minerals that this Whey product doesn't have as a meal replacement (see the image I uploaded for the label). So although you could use this product for weight loss, you wont be getting the vitamins and minerals that regular Chocolate Muscle Milk has.

It is up to you, but you might want to email the company and ask if they can send you a sample of the product before jumping into spending a lot of money for a large container. I am going to finish out this container, but i think I may go back to Muscle milk on the next purchase.

This is the first thing I put into my body after a workout or bike ride. It contains quality protein and is low in fat and sugar, making it a great recovery drink. The Cocoa Bean flavor is very good and mixes thoroughly with milk or water...just a spoon will do. Or blend it with ice and fruit for a smoothie. Unlike some other powders, it isn't chalky or grainy. I highly recommend.

I have used this products for 6-7 years and always loved it, until today....I ordered this from Amazon and received it a few days ago. First I noticed a new label on the tub. OK, but then as I scooped out my first scoop I noticed a color change..instead of being the color of something like Nestle Quik powder my protein was a very light shade of tan...bad sign. Still, I gave it a chance..after mixing and tasting I felt duped! Different texture and WEAK flavor - where did my rich Cocoa flavor go? I could have picked this product out of a blind test after having it every day for that many years.... the new version is awful....did I just get a bad batch? HELP.

I have been using this product for 3 months now and have been very pleased with it. I have used only the Cookies and Cream flavor. I typically take two scoops mixed with 14 ounces of skim MILK and it tastes great! I mix it in a shaker bottle and everything mixes very well.

My one and only complaint: You will notice that I stated that I mix this with milk. The directions on the container tell you to mix it with water. I tried mixing it with water and the taste was absolutely awful. If using milk will be too inconvenient, I'd recommend using another product.

If the powder tasted well with water, I would have given the full 5 stars.

Been using for years and like the quality and taste - like all things you do have to acquire the taste for anything somewhat health. In addition, pay attention to contents and remember everything in moderation.

I blend a half of a scoop with a cup of water then add and blend: a large handful of spinach, a half (or small) banana, and four ice cubes. It makes a great breakfast for me after my morning exercise. I also like the vanilla flavor.

Been taking this shake for a few days now, for breakfast, as long as I didn't work out that day, I'm not hungry till lunch. :) Tastes all rite, nothing amazing, I use a blender to blend it up in water, tastes bland. Which is fine with me.
