Excellent Protein powder! I tried many flavours (Mocha Cappuccino, Chocolate mint, Double Chocolate, Strawberry Bannana) and all of them are awesome. Its shakes very well.

Flavor: Double Rich Chocolate

Bought the double rich chocolate to try since it doesn't have any suclarose in it. Flavor is decent but nothing special. Mixes well with water or milk with minimal shaking . Did tend to clump though if I added the creatine I'm using at the moment (concret) . Not sure if it does it with regular mono. As for muscle gains it works just as well as any other protein. Will probably buy another tub after I finish the one I got.

I wanted something that would not taste like fake sugar and this is it! I drink it with unsweeted almond milk and it has a very light flavor. When I drink it with regular milk or sweetned almond milk it just tastes like chocolate milk. Also mixes well without a shaker bottle.

Flavor: Vanilla Ice Cream

I've tried ON Gold Standard Whey in Chocolate, Chocolate Peanut Butter, Strawberry, and Vanilla Ice Cream and I like them all. I usually stick with vanilla because it mixes well with fruit flavored pre-workout supplements. All the flavor sieve tried were good, but I'm much more into the quality and price value of the product that you get.

I usually buy ON Whey because I've done my homework and it is consistently the best, high quality whey supplement for the price. I check this regularly because who really wants to waste cash on protein when you don't need to, right?

Flavor: Mocha Cappuccino

Best tasting protein shake ever. I have been using ON protein for a few years and find it to be the best deal for quality protein per gram per serving per dollar. I have previously tried the chocolate, vanilla, and strawberry flavors. I enjoyed each of them, but the mocha cappuccino is by far the best tasting protein i have ever tried.

This is a great product. I was skeptical at first about buying this product because there are so many protein shakes like this and I wasn't sure how good it would be, but the taste was very good. The only thing that disappointed me was that it only has 29 servings in it. Overall it is a great supplement to try out.

Vanilla ice cream or shall I say unflavored with a hint of chemical?If I could end the review there it would be easy but I will be nice and recommend anybody who is trying to buy this flavor to just get a differet flavor or use it as an unflavored protein because it sinply doesn't taste like anything but has an annoying aftertaste,I just went with 8oz of skim milk,1 scoop of powder,and 2 table spoons of chocolate milk.

I have been using this product for about 2 years now and it has helped me make great changes in my body type. The taste is better then any protein I have tried and it is mostly chemical free which I also enjoy. I would recommend this to anyone who is weary about taking supplements due to the nature of this product.

While I haven't used any of the other ON flavors, the Vanilla Ice Cream flavor is smooth, creamy, doesn't have a chemical aftertaste, and mixes up well in oatmeal, shakes, smoothies, and protein puddings.

I've tried many different protein powders over the years, and this is one of my favorites.

Flavor: Banana Cream

Absolutely my favorite flavor of ON's Whey (I've tried Double Rich Chocolate which is okay, Chocolate Mint which isn't flavorful enough, Extreme Chocolate which is excellent, French Vanilla Cream which is also very tasty and this Banana Cream). I think it mixes very well and while it's hard to determine the exact effects of one protein to another, I've made great strides and progress in both strength and muscle building.

Excellent nutritional profile (second best on the market). It's definitely my brand (can't find IsoFuel around enough to try it) of choice.

Flavor: Double Rich Chocolate

Do yourself a favor, dont ever get the double rich chocolate flavor. The only way to make it tolerable is by reducing the amount of liquid you mix it with. It also mixes poorly. It doesnt matter if it is in water, milk, a glass, or a shaker cup, there are still always way too many clumps. The only reason I give it a 3 overall is beause of the ingredients and nutrition. I think I will be sticking with Dymatize.

It's the only whey protein I use. Vanilla ice cream mixes well with other low cal juice powder packs (orange, strawberry, cranberry, grape, etc.) to make a awesome flavored shakes. I mix in my water, maltodextrine, creatine, glutamine, then add my flavor and have a great post-workout shake. Excellent product at a great price!

On my third 10lb bag, first one was strawberry and the others have been chocolate. Tastes good in milk, and mixes well. Its not so good in water, but still better than most. I always am trying new kinds of proteins to see if I like them better, but I always keep coming back to the ON chocolate. I will be trying rocky road next.

Still give a solid review and a "must have" opinion of ON's whey. The quality of their whey keeps me coming back, just not to the vanilla. Found that it left a bad after-taste for quite a while after drinking. Switched to strawberry, very nice!

First: you can't build muscle without a "positive protein balance". Whey protein is pure, no-frills protein, designed to be absorbed thoroughly and quickly. The speed of absorption matters because it affects the anabolic, or muscle-building, qualities of the protein.

Second: it simply tastes great!

Currently I am stacking this with 100% Casein and i'm not switching to anything else. Optimum Nutrition is just an all around awesome company.

This was one of the first whey proteins I've tried and I can always count on Optimum Nutrition for consistency, a solid nutritional profile, and great taste. I wouldn't say it's the best tasting protein in the market, but for it's price, it's excellent for the beginner lifter or the economic lifter. I've tried a variety of flavors and chocolate always seems to come out on top.
