This is the nastiest tasting protein shake I've ever had. And I've had many! The texture is gritty and chalky, and there's a nasty bitter aftertaste. I've tried mixing this with different proportions of milk and water to try to help the taste, but it doesn't help it at all. I literally choke this down since I don't want to waste the money I spent on it. I have the Banana Carmel flavor as well, and LOVE that flavor - I don't understand why this one is so terrible. Yuck.
