  • 3 Birthday Cake

Definitely not the best whey protein on the market. Fancy packaging and fancy name (GOLD STANDARD 100%) with the hyped reviews sold the product but was very much disappointing. The mixture was watery even with little water or milk as suggested and taste (birthday cake flavour) was far too sweet (not like vanilla cake, more like cream icing cake). Plus, also saw no real results. I’m going to go back to my Maximuscle which is great!

I have been using this brand for years. It’s worked really well to help me lose weight and stay fit. I drink one every time I leave the gym and sometimes if I’m not starving I’m the middle of the day and need a snack. It mixes great in water or any milks I have used. Waters fine to watch calories but you do sacrifice a little flavor.

I'm 65 joined the gym 3 months ago to the gym 4 times a week. I think that these proteins have been helpful, also I have no problems with digestion. As for the flavours, I have found the 2 I use are very good. but as I don like chocolate drinks I could with some other flavours.

Mixes incredibly well and it digests super quick too. I drink this two times a day with whole or 2% milk. if you use this with a proper diet, (eat 4-6 times a day) you will see some gains!!!!

The chocolate mint flavor is almost tasteless. It only has the slightest taste of chocolate and almost no mint taste.

I have been using this product for many years, have tried different proteins as well such as MyProtein, BSN Syntha-6, Muscltech Nitro-Tech, Body Fortress, and a lot more. I can say without a doubt that ON not only tastes the best but has had the best results on my body. Although this is a concentrate/isolate blend, I have gained more definition and more muscle mass with this than I have with other proteins and 100% isolates. This is my favorite brand and forever my go to. Each flavor is obviously best with milk but taste great with water too (I usually go with a 25% milk, 75% water mix per scoop and a half). The macros for this protein are great but read the labels, some are better than others. The main reason I gave Double Rich Chocolate a solid 10 is because of how clean - least amount of fat/high protein per scoop. Every flavored I have LOVED and French Vanilla Creme although I did not LOVE it, it still tastes great. I love ON and will continue to experiment with other proteins but so far this is by far my personal favorite and my body's favorite as well. Absolutely amazing product.

THIS NEEDS TO BE ADDRESSED. The reason we're all buying this product is to help better our physique whether is getting leaner,bigger,stronger, but the majority of reviews are all focusing on the taste alone. I understand that's a factor but not the main factor have you seen any changes in your body since taking it? Cause if you're just taking it cause of the taste without worrying whether it's changing your body or not or doing whats needed to change it (exercise) might as well go drink some chocolate milk just saying

Bought this because of the high ratings, but wouldn’t buy (this flavour) again. Tastes like milk chocolate mixed with chalk... not particularly appetising lol. Will buy a different flavour next

I love ON products and stand by their product full throttle. It's by far the best protein on the market and mixes easy and tastes great. I stick with the unflavored brands. I wish the flavored proteins didn't have such harmful ingredients such as Yellow #5 and Acesulfame potassium, which is just as bad as aspartame. PLEASE GET RID OF THIS STUFF!

Directions For Gold Standard 100% Whey:

SPOON STIRRED: Gold Standard 100% Whey™ is INSTANTIZED. That means if you forgot your shaker cup or don’t have time to get out the blender, you can just add one rounded scoop of Gold Standard 100% Whey™ to a glass filled with 6-8 oz of water or your favorite beverage. Then mix it up with a spoon. Stir for about 20 seconds or until powder is completely dissolved.
TIP: Adjust the intensity of your Gold Standard 100% Whey™ by varying the amount of liquid that you use to prepare it. For a bolder flavor with slightly more body and sweetness, mix each scoop with 4-6 oz of water, milk, or your favorite beverage. For a milder tasting, less sweet shake, use 8-10 oz of liquid per scoop.

SHAKER: Bringing a shaker cup with you to the gym is the best way to get a powerful dose of protein immediately after your workout. Just pour in 6-8 oz of your preferred beverage and then add one rounded scoop of Gold Standard 100% Whey™ to your shaker cup. Cover and shake for 25-30 seconds.

BLENDER: Add one rounded scoop of Gold Standard 100% Whey™ to a blender filled with 6-8 oz of water, nonfat milk, or your favorite beverage. Blend for 20-30 seconds. Then add 1 or 2 ice cubes and blend for an additional 30 seconds.
SHAKE UP YOUR SHAKE: By adding fresh or frozen fruits, peanut butter, flaxseed oil, coconut and other high-energy ingredients, you can transform your shake into a delicious high-protein meal.
STACK YOUR SHAKE: You can make Gold Standard 100% Whey™ an even more powerful recovery product by adding supplements like creatine, glutamine, BCAA, and concentrated carbohydrate powders.

THINK OUTSIDE THE GLASS: Gold Standard 100% Whey™ can be used for more than just protein shakes. Try mixing a scoop into oatmeal, yogurt, or the milk that you pour over your morning breakfast cereal. Better yet, boost the protein content of muffins, cookies, brownies, etc. by adding a scoop or two to your baked goods recipes.

SUGGESTED USE: Consume approximately 1 gram of protein per pound of body weight per day through a combination of high protein foods and protein supplements. For even better results, consume your daily protein allotment over several small meals spread evenly throughout the day.

PACKETS: Pour 6-8 fl oz of water into a shaker cup, then add one packet of GOLD STANDARD 100% WHEY™. Cover and shake for 25-30 seconds. Alternatively take a sip from a full 16.9 oz. bottle of water to make room for the powder. Add one packet of GOLD STANDARD 100% WHEY™ and shake bottle to mix well until powder dissolves.

 

Warnings: This product contains whey derived from dairy and lecithin (to improve mixability) derived from soybeans. For use as a dietary supplement only. Do not use for weight reduction. PACKETS: STORE IN A COOL, DRY PLACE. CONTENTS SOLD BY NUMBER OF PACKETS, NOT VOLUME.
