- – The taste of Protein Powder, Double Rich Chocolate is the best. If it tasted bad no matter the cost I would review poorly. This really taste like chocholate. It is really good without a chemical or fake chocolate/protein bar taste.
– The power mixes easily compared to other brands with minimal clumps but still requires its fair share of mixing. I recommend a shaker bottle.
– Low price/pound is excellent.
– Excellent balance of core amino acids
– Sturdy storage container with screw lid that is easy to open.
When buying any type of protein supplement the main thing people tend to criticize is the flavor. After tasting this chocolate malt protein powder, I can honestly say it is the best tasting protein supplement I have ever consumed. The taste is comparable to the smooth, velvety, sweet chocolate malt you got as a child at your local ice cream shop. If you really want to take the flavor and calories to the next level, try enhancing your protein shake. Take one scoop of this protein powder, one ripe banana, one cup of milk, a hefty scoop of peanut butter, and 5-10 ice cubs, then blend for one minute.NUTRITIONAL CONTENT PER SCOOP
The most important part of a protein supplement is how much protein you are ingesting per serving. This is one reason why I like the Gold Standard brand because they have achieved a high level of efficacy by packing 24 grams of protein into one scoop. The 5-lb. tub contains 73 scoops of protein which last me (an intermediate/advanced lifter) about one month, as I take one shake between each main meal throughout the day, and one after my night workout.BLEND-ABILITY
Blend-ability is how well the protein can mix with various liquids and create a homogenous, or even mixture. I have found this can be an issue with some protein powders, but not with Gold Standard protein powder. I have mixed this protein powder with a variety of liquids such as water, milk, and even beer. It has never failed to mix thoroughly or leave a chunky solution as the final product, which to most consumers is ideal.
Overall, I would give the Gold Standard 100% whey protein powder 5 out of 5 stars. It has great flavor, optimal nutrition content, and great blend-ability. If you have been disappointed with protein powder in the past, give up on the “just okay stuff” and try something that won’t disappoint your needs, for me that is Gold Standard protein.
