    So I just bought a tub of Optimum Whey Gold Standard Chocolate Mint and it tastes a little bitter. Is this expected? I've never tried this but was willing to give it a go as it appears to be really popular with raving reviews.

    I use optimum whey gold standard, I have never had a bitter taste, it could be the flavor you got though. I have tried different flavors of The same type of protein (with different companies) and have noticed some flavors would give me an aftertaste or bitter taste in my mouth, even though it was the same type of protein. It was just the flavor.

    I have been doing this for quite a while, and I have tried just about every kind of protein powder. This by far is the best I have ever tasted...it mixes easily (no slugs), and it comes in individual packets so it is easy to carry. Not to mention it's cheap per serving.

    I have the double chocolate flavor and its fine. I suspect the bitterness might be from their chemical rendition of "mint" lol
