      This powder gets the job and is moderately priced. I would suggest buying online every time, I went into the store and was shocked by the high store price. Provides an adequate amount of protein, perfect for after workouts, and tastes alright. Chocolate is better that the Vanilla by a landslide, and I prefer it to the strawberry.

      Great Product - I love this stuff. It has a good taste and helps with sweet cravings. I really like the way it curb my appetite and gives me lots of energy. I take it in the morning right after my Zumba workout, and I take it in the evenings.

      I have used this as a protein breadfast for the last 3 or 4 years. I like the taste...usually. Unfortunately, I have gotten several buckets that tasted very different and not in a good way. I finally figured out that the ones I don't like have a heavy dose of what tastes like malt. I really wish the taste was consistent, without the malt.

          Whey (way) better than the strawberry one, not nearly as chalky and flavourless. It's okay, but I've found better I prefer to buy.

                      This is my favorite whey protein - i love the taste and it love it's make-up. I use it before I go to bed on heavy lifting days, mix with a little pb into a pudding consistency and it helps keeps those sweet cravings at bay as well. It's pricey I think but I still buy it because I love it.

                                  This great chocolate shake is my starter meal every day. I add some additional healthy powders and flax seed, and then add ice. Tastes like I'm 'cheating' with a delicious ice cream shake!!! It keeps me full for hours and makes me feel alert and energized.

                                    This product is by far the best protein I've used. Great muscle gain results and very easy to drink. I make a shake with almond milk and a banana or smart balance peanut butter and it blends very well! Definitely smoother on the stomach than many others without the harm of artificial sweeteners (poison).

                                      After years of switching brands I've finally found a winner. Great taste (with milk) great price and doesn't tear up my stomach.

                                        I purchase the 2 lb jug every month for my protein shakes with both fruit & veggies made with soy or almond milk. I cup twice a day to make up for my vegetarianism, and sometimes a 16 oz mega shake as a meal! Usually is about no more than 250 calories for the big one!

                                                I feel that this protein powder is as good as I have ever tried. I usually stick with the chocolate flavors and like this one just fine. It mixes very well either by a shaker bottle or blender. I like to mix it with berries, bananas, nuts etc.. to make an awsome tasting recovery drink. I am not in a bodybuilding mode at this time but in more into conditioning and fat burning. I feel that along with diet it has helped me maintain muscle. I feel strong and energetic after having a shake. And no negative side effects.

                                                    Love the chocolate flavor.. agreed with everyone else it is much better than vanilla! i love it after weightlifting w/ 1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk, and 1/2 banana. It's also really good blended w/ ice and coffee.. your own healthy version of a frappuccino! makes me happy it's not filled with chemicals or crazy things i've never heard of.. that's key for me! will definitely continue to buy it.

                                                        Designer Whey Chocolate Protein powder is the BEST tasting chocolate protein powder I've ever had! (The Strawberry's not bad either!) When mixed with skim milk it tastes just like chocolate milk...almost like the nestle quick chocolate powder mix but a lot better for you! YUM! Love this stuff for breakfast, a snack...a quick meal on the go...whenever! So GOOD! (And I am NOT a person who likes protein drinks...this stuff ROCKS!)

                                                            This stuff is really good although i dont like how it tastes just with water but it mixes so well with water.. so i first mix it with 3oz of water then add a few ounces of skim milk in just to make it taste a little better! other then that the taste is great! i love the chocolate, it keeps me from craving anything sweet... when i start thinking i need a snack i go to my protein shake instead of snacking on something that is bad for me!! <3

                                                                    This powder gets the job and is moderately priced. I would suggest buying online every time, I went into the store and was shocked by the high store price. Provides an adequate amount of protein, perfect for after workouts, and tastes alright. Chocolate is better that the Vanilla by a landslide, and I prefer it to the strawberry.

                                                                    >> A Vitamin Shoppe Customer commented on this review on 2011-03-20

I really like the way it curb my appetite and gives me lots of energy. I take it in the morning right after my Zumba workout, and I take it in the evenings.

                                                                    How does this new "Gourmet Chocolate" taste differ from the original chocolate version? On the Designer Whey site, they are calling the original "Classic Chocolate" now. Based on the review headers, it looks like many of the older reviews here are about the original Chocolate powder formula. Is it much sweeter? Better or worse tasting?
                                                                    A Vitamin Shoppe customer on Dec 15, 2013
