Flavour Name: Double Rich ChocolateSize Name: 908 g Verified Purchase
Reason for buying:
I decided to buy this product because not only was it the number #1 selling protein powder on Amazon but I had heard a lot of good things about the product. I wanted to see for myself if it lived up to all the hype.

Ingredients and Nutritional Profile:
Refer to product image and description.

Taste:
When I first tried the product by adding 1 scoop (30.4g) of powder into 350ml of water, I found that it did not taste as nice as I expected. It tasted slightly artificial and watery. However I found that I got to like the taste a lot more as time went by and I did not get sick of it by the end like I did with many other protein powders. If you want to enhance the taste of this product and make it less watery I recommend having it with semi skimmed milk or full fat milk.

Mixing:
I found that the product mixes really well in water, milk, porridge and smoothies. I have not come across a product that mixes any better.

Results:
After taking the product for 2 months, 3 times a day, whilst weight training 4 times a week and doing cardio 3 times a week I found that my strength and muscle growth had improvement, I had more energy and I was getting more toned. It was mostly evident around my arms and chest where my T-Shirt got tighter. I could lift 5-10% more and I felt a lot stronger even when I wasn't in the gym. It is now the only Whey Protein powder that I am willing to use.

When to take:
I had 1 scoop for breakfast, Pre training and post training mixed with Dextrose. Having Dextrose at the same time drives the amino acids into the muscles much quicker. If I don't fancy a shake first thing in the morning then I will mix 1 scoop with my porridge or smoothie.

Flavour Name: Double Rich ChocolateSize Name: 908 g
I've been making my own protein shakes for a very long time and I never tried this brand although I had always heard good things about it. I finally got me a tub the other day and must say the taste rivals that of muscle milk (for those who have tried muscle milk you know what I'm talking about when I say it tastes like a chocolate milk shake). The reason I rate this protein higher than muscle milk is because the protein to carb and fat ration put muscle milk to shame, and still tastes like excellent which, to me, is pretty impressive.

I drink one shake a day post-workout, add in some trib and DAA, Tribulus Terrestris 90% Bulk Powder 25 Grams + FREE Primaforce D-Aspartic Acid 100 Grams which btw if you're over twenty and lifting heavy, DAA and trib pack on muscle like few other test boosters I've tried. One tip I'll add here, not that it needs it but try adding a drop of vanilla extract (and only a drop) and some ice cubes into the blender and tell me if that isn't the best shake you've ever had after a hard workout.

Flavour Name: Milk ChocolateSize Name: 2273 g Verified Purchase
TASTE:
This really benefits from being made with milk. It tastes a little 'thin' otherwise without adding skimmed milk. Otherwise it is not a very sweet shake so if you prefer sweeter shakes in order to cut your sweet tooth throughout the day then you make want to add a tablespoon of something else to this. That said, there is a slight malty taste about this and it is one of the most pleasant shakes I've every had. If you double the recommended dose, it is VERY sweet.

TEXTURE:
This is really easy to shake and I do not get lumps of powder. This has nothing to do with my shaker because some of my meal replacement shakes continue to be lumpy or too thick despite shaking or blending. If you do not have a shaker, you could easily mix this with a fork as I have done from time to time.

PACK:
It is a large container (you're probably buying in bulk) but they also come in handy doy bags and smaller individual portion sachets. These are excellent for travelling especially with hand baggage only.

Flavour Name: Double Rich ChocolateSize Name: 2273 g Verified Purchase
Tastes yum! I have it with milk though. Water was a bit gross (bleuch) skimmed milk is really yummy but a couple of days ago only had green milk and had to use that instead... It was even better with green milk!!! I bet it would be a whole level better with blue milk!! Lol. I don't know if it makes me stronger or repairs muscles etc but psychologically I feel better from it but I do know that it takes away my hunger as I exercise so many times per week I was always hungry and this drink definitely takes the edge off. I still get hungry but not as much!!

Flavour Name: Milk ChocolateSize Name: 2273 g
Absolutely the best protein i have ever purchased. Considering i have tried them all, maximuscle, phd, reflex, the list goes on this is def the best. It is very good at mixing with milk and ice cold water. I usually have it as a pre gym snack and it works very well. My muscle mass has gone up very quickly and i have cut body fat with a good clean diet. Highly recommended product.

I chose this because I wanted to get my protein source from Whey Protein Isolate - which I believe is the one with the fastest absorption rate. Not many of the shakes out there actually contain whey protein isolate, it is a premium ingredient.
This does contain Whey Protein Concentrate etc too. You get a high% of protein per scoop(one serving) and it mixes really easily.

The double rich choc flavour is good, not amazing, I would give it 5 stars if it tasted better. But you're drinking this stuff for the benefits right?! I even put a scoop in my coffee and it wasn't all that bad! I used vanilla flavour back in 2006 when I was at Uni and that tasted like chemicals, not nice.

The shake is feeding my muscles (and fast) which is exactly what I want. It's not a bulking shake.
