Optimum 100% whey gold standard is an ok protein, but personally I really don't know what the fuss is all about :| have red so many good reviews but what i got really didn't live up to the hype. admittedly it did mix well but that's really the only positive. Banana Creme tasted absolutely vial! was very very watery and almost tastes chemically. For the money I certainly wont be giving it a second chance and feel there are way better tasting and effective proteins out there! (it also gave me stomach pains)
by far the waste whey on the market mixes perfect everytime no lamps nothing an taste is amazing best out there can never go wrong with this anytime of the day
I've just completed my first bag of Optimum Nutrition – Double Rich Chocolate! I've used budget proteins before, but this is by far the best, with the 4545g bags providing good value for money. It's 'instantized' so it mixes incredibly well, meaning that you can stir it in a glass or use it in a shaker with no lumps! The Double Rich Chocolate protein doesn't taste synthetic, instead it has a very nice, natural flavour. The dosing of the ingredient/nutrients such as the BCAAs is visible on the bag, which unlike other proprietary blends ensures you're getting your correct nutrient profile.
It really is the Gold Standard (and I'm just about to order another bag!).
Bought this in the vanilla Ice cream flavour and so far enjoyed the results. It feels (although this may be a placebo effect) as if the protein does in fact extend the anabolic digestion period directly after exercise. Each serving contains 24g of pure protein which is perfect as your body can absorb approximately that amount at any one time. It contains no other additives or other supplements such as creatine or CLA which I like as I try to purchase all of my supplements separately so I see exactly what is working and have as much control over my diet and supplements as possible. That is why I chose ON and the 100% gold standard whey as it is quite literally only protein.
Can't go wrong with it. If you try somethign else you will always go back to this protein.
This product for me is a reliable, good tasting and easy mixing product. When i don't feel like experimenting with a new whey product i stick to this as my go to protein.
I have been using this product daily for the last month and have found that it is one of the best mixing and tasting proteins i have ever had. It has a high quality protein and the carbs and fats are low.
I have just recently bought a tub of choc mint after being a long term user of ON Double Choc. I love the flavour more than the choc and don't see myself getting sick of the taste. Another great product from ON.
I've tried a lot of proteins over the years and this is a good one. Mixes great, tastes good, and goes down really easy. Especially in the morning or right after a workout when my stomach is a little weaker. No complaints. Get it!
one of the best proteins on the market. great content, great taste and good mixability.
I use the shake after my workouts. I have never used a protein shake before but this tasted good and seemed like a good deal. This might one of the best flavors. I will see in the following time if it helped my performance and muscle development but after one day, it tasted good and felt good. I blend it with juice and ice cubes.
if you like Marzipan you will love this flavour! and as normal you can;'t go wrong with the quality of ON products especially their protein.
I love this protein!I am taking it regularly for 4 years now and i don't think i will ever change it!I have seen great results and i love the taste!Highly recommended!
We all know from Optimum 100% whey gold standard!With such a great mix and taste but not so many carbs and fat, i think is the best protein i have ever tried. Cookies and cream btw, is far the most tasteful flavour!

I was tired of the creamy shakes and thought this would be a nice change. I was wrong, it tastes horrible!

You can't beat this whey protein and the flavour is quite nice. I wouldn't use another brand after trying optimum nutrition.
