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.

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!!Read more ›
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.
UPDATE 2X: As of Monday March 16th, Amazon separated the reviews from the old formula and this new formula. Great job Amazon!
UPDATE 3X: As of Monday June 1st, Optimum has clearly paid for FAKE REVIEWS in response to the extreme backlash by former customers. Read the reviews over the past 4 months, PAID FAKE REVIEWS. Buyer beware.
Not only did Optimum reduce the amount of powder and keep the price the same, they CHANGED THE FORMULA. This new "Naturally Flavored" powder now has sugar listed in the ingredients. We all know sugar is a processed food, which is NOT NATURAL. The original natural formula that we all loved contained evaporated cane juice powder as the sweetener. Compare your old 5lb tub to this new "Naturally Flavored" 4.5lb tub. NOT THE SAME.
Optimum also removed the patented ingredient Aminogen, owned by Triarco Industries, is added to high quality protein powders and other products to increase protein absorption and amino acid levels. NOT THE SAME.
This is deceptive marketing and a slap in the face to all loyal Optimum Nutrition customers. You are losing a customer of 7 years that spends over $3k on supplements annually. Don't be fooled by the paid FAKE REVIEWS in response to all the negative comments. Never again.
Since Optimum changed the formula, I've been purchasing MET-Rx 100% Natural Whey 5 Pound http://amzn.com/B0017I1XNC
