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.
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.
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.

I previously tried some of bestselling protein powders but I can say that COMPLETE WHEY is best for me.
Good Protein-Carb ratio. Not too sweet. No bad aftertaste.
Excellent flavor. I add a bit of PB and half a banana... I won't drink anything else.Published 18 months ago by JEFFREY N BROWN
