    OK, so having to chug down protein in the morning is a real pain especially when it tastes like rats vomit mixed with milk chocolate. I've been using optimum, but i'm getting tired of the taste. Your recommendations?

    I have whey chocolate favored protein. I mixed it with water=gross milk=nasty as hell. I mixed it with diet nestea iced tea icon_biggrin.gif and it's actually pretty good. Much better than the vanilla flavor and WAY better than any bar I have had

    At Large Nutrition has Nitrean (just protein) and Opticen (meal replacement) and both are great... mix smooth, taste good... I tried them after Men's Health recommended them and love it. I have only got the vanilla because I like being able to mix it with whatever to change the flavor a little... banana, peanut butter, etc. But reviews say they are all great.

    I don't think they sell anywhere but their web site... Not sure if I can post a link here.. but it's just at large nutrition dot com.

    Syntrax Nectar (the "fuzzy navel" flavor's the best)

    I use this chocolate flavored stuff from body fortress and it's good in water and milk. I have to stir it with a spoon, though, and a good bit of it ends up just sitting on the bottom of my cup...

    What Optimum Nutrition are you using now? I'm using Optimum Nutrition's double rich chocolate right now. It's good, but I think the mint chocolate was better.

    I concur, I love the mint chocolate. ON is relatively cheap. I use the 100% whey blend for after lifting.

    BSN is also delicious - best tasting by far, however, a bit pricey. But is does have added fiber and healthy fats.

    I typically use both. Basically, if you get burnt out on a flavor - change it around. Also, look for quality protein and fewer additives.

    I use Wegman's Whey Protein Powder. Strawberry and Vanilla are exellent, but Chocolate is like powdered fecal matter. They actually taste ok in water, but better with milk or in a smoothie.

    I may just have to switch though, it looks like this Optimum stuff is cheaper and in a ton more flavors.

    Muscle Milk... really?

    Hey... its one of the most popular brands for sure. I tried it just recently. From a taste perspective, it left an aweful after taste for me. And fat content... way to high. It left me bloated... I could'nt wait to finish the container.

    It left me scratching my head frankly. Im a Sales and Marketing guy, for me it proved my theory that with the right budget, right agency, and correct ad campaign, you can market and sell most anything.

    EAS Premium Protein tastes really good. Mixes well with water or skim milk. No chunks or aftertaste.

    So far, Isopure's chocolate and Vanilla tastes the best.

    MRI used to have this cafe (or mocha) that I really really love, but I can't find it anymore.

    I like the stuff without artificial sweeteners. Anyone else notice how you taste them for hours after you drink a shake? I think the Optimum Nutrition stuff is good too. I think the best tasting stuff I've had is Jay Robb's Whey Protein Powder.

    Artificial flavors and sweeteners make me gag. I buy pure whey protein isolate and BCAA in bulk from trueprotein.com and flavor my shakes with coconut milk, maple syrup, fruit concentrate, cocoa/instant coffee, etc.

    I use Whole Nectar soy protein. I hate the taste of just about every other kind of protein powder, and theirs is made with the whole soybean.

    Without question...the best tasting protein powder is Champion Nutrition Pure Whey (I like the chocolate flavor).

    It mixes easily, does not make slugs (slimy protein powder chunks)...it does not taste like gak (in fact tastes like Nestle Quick)...and when you mix it it does not have the consistency of liquid pudding that you have to choke down (for that reason I have to say that Met-RX is by far the most damn awful crap ever invented!!!).

    I have found the CN in double scoop packets (46 grams protein) for less than $1.00 per serving (including shipping) online. They have tons of flavors, and if you buy the packets you can also get a mix of flavors.

    If you want to know where I get it from ask me...I'll give you the link.

    muchmorethanmuscle saidI buy pure egg white protein powder with no flavor. Then I mix it with fruit juice or a fruit smoothie. You really can't taste it. And it winds up being cheaper. It's also healthier without all the additives.



    that sounds good...i might try that. I usually use Optimums Nutrition strawberry and loved it. BSN's banana Synthax (sp?) is awesome !!!

    I recently went the cheaper route and bought a big bad of EAS vanilla from sams...and I hate it...i can drink it but I hate vanilla protein anyway...I have always bought strawberry and never tire of it. I usually add some fresh frozen berries to it and its good., its taken me forever to get through this nasty ass bad of vanilla shit though.

    I use Entrenet's Whey Protein....it's incredibly good tasting. It's sweetened with natural Stevia ( a sweet herb)...the vanilla is great! I put in about 1 cup of Almond Breeze in stead of milk in a blender ... add a little water...2 scoops of the protein....blend that together with any fruit and add ice to make a shake type thickness.

    IT IS GREAT!

    ^^Tastes great! It's nice and creamy.
    Isopure also tastes great. I've tried strawberries and cream and milk chocolate. ..Just stay away from the Low-Carb alternative. Those are not so good. ON Fruit Punch is horrible.

    I haven't met a protein powder i haven't liked- throw 'em in a blender with the right things and they're all delicious in my book
