I tried a sample of the Optimum Nutrition gold standard 100% whey, whey protein isolate in the double rich chocolate flavor. I thought that this whey protein was easy to mix with milk without a blender and fully dissolve. The double rich chocolate variety had a thick, rich taste. It's a very refreshing post-workout supplement. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

The Gold Standard Whey blended easily with ice and cashew milk. I put a tablespoon of powdered peanut butter in it too. It blended easily and smoothly with no grit. I have had others that the gritty feel alone is enough for me not to have it again. This is a much more pleasant drink. It has a high protein value and while I had this for breakfast I did not need anything else to eat until lunch. It is low calorie too making it a really good choice for me.

First of all the price is about as low as you'll find here. Second, the shipping was lightning fast and not to mention, in my case, free! Third and most important, the product was exactly as advertised and precisely what I wanted. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a fast acting whey protein. It's best after a workout and okay before bed or between meals every now and again too! Another thing is the taste. It came to the point where I Iooked forward to my shakes! The taste was that good! (extreme milk chocolate) There is a reason this brand is one longest running, best selling brands out there. This was my first protein powder so I can recommend it for beginners also. As far as results go, I can say that my muscles recovered quicker. I didn't stay sore as long. I only took this twice a day for two weeks as I am new to protein powders, so I am trying various ones. I won't say the name of the one I tried after ON Gold Standard but the taste and texture doesn't quite measure up.
