what you get. The container is half full when you open it and it settles down. But it does work well.
I think sometime last year they moved facilities or whatever, changed formulas, and now all of the flavors have a "Now Better Tasting Than Ever!" stamp on them. This mark is the kiss of death. Avoid this product at all costs. I've tried vanilla (my old favorite), mocha (a close 2nd), and chocolate, and they all have the same strange taste now. It almost tastes like the new ingredient is melted plastic.
I'm extremely cheap, and I once went through a whole bottle of horrible GNC protein because I didn't want to waste it. This new VP2 is even worse than that. It tastes like a carcinogen.
I'm pissed, because I loved the old VP2 and it was the cornerstone of my supplement arsenal for years. AST apparently doesn't respect their customers anymore, because there's no way this stuff should've been released to the public with such a horrible, chemical taste. I guess they don't want my money anymore.
On a side note, they also got rid of their XGF meal replacement a few years ago (The best ever), and now we're stuck with 'Raptor', which doesn't taste as good, and is almost impossible to mix.
I think it's time to find another company.
(I saw another reviewer with a similar complaint who suggested a company named Beverly International supplements. Their proteins have over 200 reviews, mostly 5 star, so I guess I'm gonna give them a shot.)
So long AST, it was good while it lasted. 😢
I'm going to continue using ON because at the rate I consume protein I can't justify the cost (and while some may argue this, I've found as long as you're not buying the bottom tier they're relatively equal).
That said, this is the best quality out there of every protein this random internet denizen has tried.
I'm going to finish out the tub by mixing it with Muscle Milk but don't think I'll buy this flavor again.
Waiting on a tub of fruit punch to try it.
Update on the Fruit Punch flavor. Almost the same as the vanilla creme. Not great, tastes nothing like fruit punch I've come to expect. I mixed one scoop with a Hawaiian Punch Singles to go pouch and it's drinkable. I may buy the fruit punch flavor again since it's such a convenient source of protein.
Some other observations.
It mixes up fairly easily and doesn't clump up, but it does get foamy.
It doesn't have an aftertaste (or burp taste).
No gas effects after taking it.
Will ride out these two jugs and see if I have any appreciable difference in muscle gains doing Max OT versus Muscle Milk.
They recently changed the formula without stating so and they deny it when asked about it.
Before this, the product was perfect. Now it's awful (extremely clumpy protein, horrible mixability, bad taste).
