One of the worst tasting protein powder ever. It also gave me gut troubles. Never again. Luckily I was able to try it for free.

I love this protein!! It’s so tasty, I actually look forward to my protein shakes. They’re more of a treat than a chore because it just tastes so good. And it blends so well, I don’t have to wash my blender or blender bottle everyday because I can just mix this up in a glass with a spoon, which saves me a lot of hassle. I’m almost through a 5 pound tub and I’m not sick of it at all. Definitely the best protein I’ve ever had, highly recommend!

The cookies and cream flavor smells horrible, I instantly lose all desire to drink it as soon as I open it. Once the shake is made it's okay but has a weird after taste. Compared to the cookies and cream casein it's really bad, because the casein has great flavor and texture, and this is lacking in both.

Tried a few protein powders on the market but this one is the only one I will ever buy. Been using for years on and off, very pleased!!

It does its job! The powder mixes very well, you never have to worry about lumps. I prefer to mix it with milk or almond milk for flavour’s sake. The cookie & cream is my favourite of the ones I’ve tried so far, it’s a dark cookie taste like oreos rather than a choc chip taste & has little biscuit bits in the drink which is cool. Banana Cream reminds me of the banana Nesquik shake or like foam banana sweets. Vanilla Ice Cream tastes just like so & Birthday Cake to be honest tastes the exact same as the former but sweeter like vanilla and sprinkles. Vanilla can be a bit boring sometimes to drink but goes great for mixing into food, pancakes & smoothies. The Birthday Cake flavour is AMAZING in protein pancakes (with 1tsp of vanilla extract & 1tsp of maple syrup or honey in with your oats) & satisfies sugar cravings if you have any!

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.
