Optimum Nutrition whey protein powder I wanted so badly to like this product, but here we are. Most recently I'd been using Vega's protein powder but once I finished it I decided to make a switch since the stevia in it was just too much. After starting this powder I've made a vow to never again purchase protein powder with stevia. Because true to form, the stevia in this powder is maybe even more overpowering. There's almost nothing you can do to mask it- I've tried it all. Further, the "chocolate" flavor is nonexistent. The only thing this powder has going for it is that it's not that chalky. The texture suits me just fine; the taste doesn't. On the plus side, this product is really going to keep me motivated to work out. Because the more I work out, the sooner I'll be done with these ghastly sweet drinks.




Best Optimum Nutrition Sport Nutrition EDIT on 4/5/19: ON, you got some splainin to do. I bought this on Mar 3. It's April 5 as I write this. I have used just slightly over half the container, and I'm forced to throw the rest away because it's gone rancid. The facts here: Your label says store in a cool, dry place. I live in NE Illinois, and you couldn't get much cooler or drier than that, given we had Chiberia this winter, with temps @ -40 for several days; it never got over 60 degrees in my apt, because we have baseboard heat, and my kitchen is the farthest away from the heater. So, I sat the container on the shelf of my butcherblock. I checked the temp there today - it's around 34 degrees outside, around 55 on that shelf. I'd say that's a cool temp, yes? Now, onward. The stamp on the bottom says the expiry is 12/20, mfg 12/18 (batch #0000926865), so this isn't an old container that's been sitting around for a while. ON, how are you testing longevity on this product? At what temp do you recommend storing? It seems to me, the label should say "refrigerate upon receipt". Are there added oils in this product, or are the natural plant oils fragile enough that "cool, dry" isn't an adequate method of storage? What QC do you use at your mfg facilities to guarantee the plant grain is kept at a low temp? Where are you buying the grain/flour, and what temp do they keep it at? I don't want a refund, I don't want an exchange. I won't use this, which I thought was going to be the answer to a long quest for non-animal protein, ever again, and I absolutely can't and won't recommend it to anyone.I've used ON Gold Whey for years, and I'm disgusted with this. Please, get yourselves sorted with this, as it could be the answer to a lot of other people's needs, but not if they have to throw half the container away.I used ON Gold Whey for years, so I was pretty happy to find a plant-based protein made by such a great company! I bought the chocolate, and was excited to get it yesterday. BUT. The stevia is overpowering, and leaves the same metallic taste in my mouth that aspartame does, which is very strange. ON, PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE, cut down on the sweetener. I want to add fruits to this for a protein/vitamin/mineral/carb win, but it’s too sweet. Why is it necessary to have so much sweetener in what would be such a fantastic product? Maybe make an unsweetened version? Otherwise, this product would be a dream come true!! Price point is perfect, Prime delivery...nearly a trifecta.


Optimum Nutrition Whey Protein I’m not a body builder by any means. I work out about three times a week and I use the protein powder for a post work out shake or for a quick breakfast. I’m not on strict diets or anything like that, so my review is from a regular joe who works our mostly to stay in decent shape and stay alive. The protein powder as a shake is pretty delicious. No weird aftertaste like many other powders, and it’s really filling. I’m sure most “pros” know all the tips but for those of you that don’t, it helps if you mix the powder with whatever liquid you prefer, I use soy milk, before adding ice. If you put everything in at the same time the powder gets clumpy. I don’t know why, but that’s been my experience. I use a blender not a shaker. Again, the chocolate malt is what I like and it tastes great.
