I use this protein primarily as a meal replacement for breakfast as a way to help me lose weight and I think it has helped a lot. The taste is good even with water and it blends pretty well, you may get a clump or two. This is also a good low-carb, low-fat protein if you are trying to stay lean as well.

Warning: the "Elite Gourmet" series is only 64% protein (by macronutrient mass). The "Elite" series by the same manufacturer is 81% protein, and it gives you more actual protein per dollar spent. Or their "ISO 100" series is 91% protein (and it's hydrolyzed!) but a bit pricey.

The other 36% of this product is mostly fat and sugar. And it's the same story with most of the other so-called "protein powders" in this price range (except the "Elite"). Of course, the fat and sugar does make them taste better. But if you're the type to make this decision based on flavor, then this product line is probably more your speed: http://www.amazon.com/s?rh=k%3Aben+jerry%2Ci%3Agrocery -- I recommend the Cherry Garcia. ;-)

My first protein tub ever. Love Peanut Butter and Chocolate favor. Not full Whey, But Casein helped me with losing weight when doing cardio.

After Dymatize, tried ON Gold Standard, didn't like the flavor as much (Strawberry Banana). GRoss. Then they jacked the price to $57 for 5 lb tub on amazon.

After That, tried BSN Syntha 6.$45 for 5 lb but the scoop was huge. So it ended up costing more per scoop. The carbs/fats in here was GREAT for my bulking phase. Got tubby though because that was of eating a lot of MAsh potAtoEs for the Carb Load.

Then went to MusclePharm Combat Assault. 5 lb for $50. not bad. More sweet than every other tub. Then bought another 5 lb for $33 (Sam's club deal of the week; never to be seeen again).

Now poorer. Back to Dymatize. I really likke this out of all the tubs. Good Whey/Casein Mix at affordable price and the best flavor IMO. may chunk a little, but who gives a shat c:

I have used the Elite Gourmet of this product for years. It works fantastic and has minimum sugar. I try to avoid sugar as much as possible but I am happy to sacrifice to have a GREAT tasting protein. Suffering through a bad taste every day after a work out isn't worth it. I have used this product for a long time and have not found another that warrants a switch. That all being said, I tried the non gourmet version recently and it tasted like a foot. I went back to the Gourmet after returning the other to the store.

The taste is decent. I have had better and worse. The main problem that I have is that is doesent break down well at all. Since I am in Afganistan, I am use to putting my protien in a water bottle and shaking it up. With this I even get powder clumps with a shaker cup. You almost have to have a blender.

Dymatize offers a great flavor at a more reasonable price than other companies. If you're trying to eat more protein in your diet, either build muscle or recover from your endurance exercise but still save a few bucks here and there, this is the brand for you. More specifically, the chocolate peanut butter flavor the DN offers is fantastic. It is one of my favorite flavors that this brand offers, and is easily my most purchased flavor by DN.

I've always liked Dymatize products, and it's a decently priced blend-protein. I usually stick with chocolate for all my proteins because it's just easier brand to brand, I don't buy them expecting it to be a delicious milkshake,(I also dont use milk for them)its for protein supplementing; so not enjoyment. But, the chocolate does taste pretty good from others I have tasted. I just recently switched to the peanut butter chocolate flavor because it was cheaper.

What I like about the chocolate is that it tastes good but it isn't over powering in the sense that after a long work, where you don't want to immediately chug a shake, its very easy to get down (its also only 6 ounces).

The peanut butter chocolate, I would say is more flavorful, but it does kind of taste like watery peanut butter. Which isn't that it is bad, its pretty good, I just prefer a more subtle flavor because you never know how your stomach is going to feel post/pre workout, or during the day if your "cutting" weight.

Its a good shake for in between meals if your trying to stay low-cal; 125 calories and a decent amino profile. Great product all the way around.

I much prefer Gold Standard Whey. I like GNC Wheybolic too, but it's overpriced. This tastes OK, isn't a bad value, and mixes OK. All of these qualities are better with ON Gold Standard Whey so I switched. Gold Standard is now my gold standard...I know I'm hilarious. How many times can I say Gold Standard in a review? Well, that was only five.
