  1. Caleb

    Been taking extreme milk chocolate every day for the past 8 months and still can’t grow tired of it. By far the best flavor.DO NOT BUY VANILLA ICE CREAM FLAVOR:I made the horrible mistake of getting the 5lb vanilla ice cream flavor for one of those months; it was the worst flavor ever. I nearly threw up every time I drank it (yes it was that bad) For some reason it had a different formula and the powder was so fine/soft and different to the point where I was questioning if it was fake because it never dissolved in water, only formed huge chunks. A weird thing too was that even when I used cold water, shaking it with vanilla ice cream flavor made it room temperature. I don’t know if I just got a bad batch, but I’m glad that I at least now know to never to touch that flavor ever again.

  2. Alex

    I used to drink protein shakes all the time when I was in college and heavily working out but I was drinking my bf’s. So when we broke up I was too cheap to buy my own and the ones I did buy tasted like crap or wouldn’t mix well. Now I’m trying to up my protein game and decided to try this and I’m sooo glad I did!! I got the Extreme chocolate and I’ve just been mixing it with water in an $8 shaker and it mixes up so quick and the texture and taste is ENJOYABLE.

  3. Ryan

    This is a supplement. It is not to be your sole source of protein. Also, based on your level of activity, the more muscle you break down, the more protein you need to consume. When done properly, this gets it done.

  4. Orlando

    If your hesitant on which flavor to buy look no further because cookies and cream is absolutely delicious and its easy to blend with water or milk I recommend milk for a broader taste but the choice is ultimately yours. JUST BUY IT AND GET THOSE GAINS?

  5. CRM

    Did NOT expect to like the flavor this much!!! Literally the best protein powder I’ve had thus far. Ran out of my Strawberry flavor (that was so good with either milk or plain water) and decided to try the cookies and cream flavor to change it up. This brand never disappoints! Excellent source of protein when you’re struggling getting the amount you need in a day. Mixed well and did not have a chalky taste. Blend with a cup of almond milk and 1/3 of a banana (I used the black ones in my fridge smh) and it was the best smoothie I’ve ever had. Great reward after a hard workout! Buy it!!

    GNC was my go to place for their Lean Shake Green. For some odd reason they have not been able to restock them so I bought this Plant Based Protein in the meantime. Well, GNC just messed up big time because I just found my new favorite Protein Shake.

  7. Marilyn

    —-Introduction—-We all know that whey protein works. It’s one of the cheapest and most convenient ways to reach your protein goals if you can’t get there with meals. “Cheaping out” on your whey doesn’t always pan out, as anyone who has choked down a less expensive (but clumpy) tub of protein. Paying top dollar doesn’t always guarantee positive results either. I’ve had some “premium” protein that I didn’t care for because while it mixed great, it tasted terrible! I always seem to come back to ON whey protein because it fits the bill on all accounts (at least for me).—-Ingredient Profile—-It’s got whey! (hey!). Around 24g of protein per scoop (~31g) you get a fair amount of protein, with the rest left over for “other stuff”. The “other stuff” being 1g of fat and 3g of carbs, with one gram of those carbs coming from sugar. All this is from ONE label that I found (chocolate malt flavor), but if you look around the net at other labels of this product, you’ll see slightly different numbers. What’s up with that? The variance is most likely due to the MANY different flavors ON has on the market. The flavor will also affect what sweetener is used, as I have seen acesulfame potassium and sucralose (better known as the brand name Splenda) both alone and in combination depending on the flavor. It’s good to be aware that this variance exists, but for most it shouldn’t matter too much. I’m sure you can find other whey’s with a tighter carb/sugar/fat/protein ratio, so if you’re micromanaging your macros you might be concerned. But overall I think it’s pretty good.On the topic of artificial sweeteners: I feel that artificial sweeteners are safe for the most part. Some people might disagree, but much of the clinical literature I have read (regarding aspartame, saccharine, and sucralose specifically) has indicated that they are safe in most people. Most problems I have heard are that people have trouble digesting large amounts of the stuff and get diarrhea. However, I feel that they are better than the amount of sugar (I.E., empty calories) it takes to achieve a similar sweetness. These are just my own thoughts and opinions, so use your best judgment.—-Taste—-Here is where a protein powder can really shine, in my opinion. With upwards to 24 different flavors, you’re bound to find one that you like. I’ve tried a handful of them and they were great. My go-to has been the double rich chocolate, as I can add some peanut butter to it if I want to add some more calories/make it taste even better. I would recommend that you pick a flavor that you REALLY like before investing in a 10lb bag (strawberry got old after a while).—-Mixability—-ON’s Whey always mixes easily and cleanly in both milk and water, with very little (if any) clumpage. The labeling states that you can stir it up with a spoon, but I recommend sticking to a good ol’ shaker bottle. Full marks here.—-Dosing—-Dosing is easy peasy, just scoop up however much you need. One scoop per serving is pretty standard for most powders, with 24g per serving being normal as well.—-Effectiveness—-I can state with great certainty that ON’s protein is effective. Working in the field that I do, some jobs in the past have had me working 12 hours a day with no breaks. Oftentimes, this would be my only source of protein (and sometime my only source of nutrition, period). Despite these conditions I was still able to hit my daily protein goals. I did have some digestive issues when I first started supplementing protein, but that was mostly because I made such a drastic change in my eating habits. Those have long since subsided, and my gut bacteria enjoy processing my protein without complaint.Also, Labdoor.com (an independent supplement testing lab) gave ON’s Gold Standard 100% Whey Protein an A-. I feel that the “minus” comes from the inclusion of artificial sweeteners, which labdoor.com marks as “controversial”. As I’ve said previously, I feel these claims are overstated.—-Value—-The best value is to buy in bulk, and ON offers a whopping 10lb bag for around $110 on amazon. That averages out to about 75 cents a serving, so I feel that I’m getting my money’s worth. The most commonly carried size by most brick-and-mortar stores is the 5lb tubs, but sizes go all the way down to a 1.8lb package if you aren’t a monster consumer like myself. Do note that not all flavors are carried in all sizes, as the 10lb bags are limited to around 5 flavors.—-Side Effects—-You might experience some cramping if you’re new to supplementing protein, but that’s usually because your body is getting used to processing protein in such a large bolus. It should pass fairly quickly. For those that still have problems, you might have issues processing whey in general. I have heard of people having success in switching to other protein sources such as soy in these cases.—-Conclusion—-If you want a whey protein that is affordable, mixes well, tastes great, and works, look no further. While you can probably find some other whey’s with a slimmer carb profile, it won’t beat ON’s Gold Standard by much. Highly recommended.

    This is by far the best protein powder and Optimum Nutrition knows it. There’s a reason it’s so pricy; it’s by far the best flavor, best ingredients, and best quality to blend.The extreme milk chocolate flavor makes it as if you’re drinking a milkshake. I just put one scoop of this with one cup of milk and a tablespoon of peanut butter and it’s delicious.I don’t know how they do it but it blends perfectly every time; no big clumps or pieces stuck to the blender that I have to choke down.

  9. Davis

    The product is delicious! I was mistaken thinking it was the bigger container so make sure you look at the size and are sure of what you are getting. It was a little pricey.

  10. steve mann

    I’ve tried a bunch of different brands but ON Gold Standard Whey is my go to. I use it for overnight oats and vanilla ice cream is a great flavor to mix in my oats. Its the best value I’ve been able to find.
