        I have to say that I was very hesitant to buying this product but I said what the heck, I need a protein powder. It was a nice sized bottle of the stuff with a scooper. It didn't smell too appetizing when I opened it but I tried it anyway. I took one scoop and mixed it with one tbsp. of peanut butter and blended it with almond milk and some ice. It was gritty like described, but very tolerable. It was sweet but not overly sweet and kept a pretty water consistency even with adding ice (I am going to add more next time). The only thing I will say is that it didn't taste so much like chocolate, as I thought it would. But I'm enjoying it.

        I decided to try this product after trying "another" raw protein that was really expensive but tasted and worked great. I thought I would see if there is something comparable out there that I could afford. I am really disappointed with this. It was like drinking sand and it left my throat feeling scratchy. It separated after sitting only a couple of minutes and I just couldn't stomach drinking it. I never got a chance to see how it worked because it was awful. It tasted like chalk, not chocolate. I have tried many proteins over the years but this one is the worst. I sent it back and will try something else.

        If you like chalk you love this!!!!!

        Cons

          Best Uses

            Really awful. I'd honestly rather be fat than finish the container of this. I add water so maybe that makes a difference, but it's really like drinking watered down chalk. Moving on to another product trying Tera's Whey instead. Definitely never buying this again. Pure chalk!

                                taste is too sweet for me but good protein source from raw veggies to help build muscles.

                                            I started using the protein for shakes in the morning. I use Vanilla Almond Milk, scoop of organic peanut butter, spoon of raw honey, and the taste is not bad. My 9 year old wanted to try some yesterday and he actually said it tasted good. I could get a lot of other protein powders that tasted better but none would give me what I get with this product. I am now a lifer. After just a week and a half of using the product I have lost 5 pounds and am starting to see my abs again.

                                                          Iris-Katarina S: Use this product twice daily. I enjoy the taste, it is somewhat of a chalky consistency but if mixed with water and ice it is quite pleasant. I like that it is raw and gluten free, one downfall is that this is one of the only RAW proteins that contains soy products. I will eventually move on to a different flavor but, for now I will stick to the chocolate. Does go quick but, worth the price knowing that the ingredients are better than most protein powders.

                                                          Juan J: Protein gives your body something to work on (digest) so it should not increase your appetite. However, if you wait too long in between meals, your appetite will be greater. The trick is to eat small portions throughout the day in order to avoid your appetite from building up and becoming ferocious. Mar 24, 2014

I did however get several batches that smelled rancid. The store I purchased from exchanged for new batch and also gave me a refund. But after about 3 batches , I got tired of taking it back and stopped buying it. I have started using a different product and like it better . It is vanilla whey protein by Biochem. Mar 25, 2014

                                                          MARYANN S: Mariposa: I've used this product in various flavors for three years and have found it very filling, does not increase my appetite. I make a smoothie out of it by adding 1/2 banana, 1/2 cup frozen organic fruit, 1/2 cup organic no fat/low fat yogurt, 1-2 tablespoons of organic flaxseed oil, and one cup unsweetened coconut or almond milk..throw it all in the blender with the protein powder added last. It replaces a meal for me and it is 4-6 hours before I'm hungry again. Instead of buying the 22 oz tub, it comes in packets so you can try it first. VS sells the individual packs as do other health food/grocery stores is there isn't a VS near you. It is a plant based protein so it has a different taste than some of the other protein products on the market. I've tried this product in water or juice and it did not go down easy for me. I need to make it into a smoothie to enjoy it. Also, not a strong chocolate flavor if that is why you picked this flavor over vanilla. I did not like the Chia flavor at all. Mar 24, 2014

He has not tried this due to recovery from a health issue and has not ridden this winter.But for years used a protein drink and loved it. Sorry, I don't work out at all. I bought at the end of fall and find cold drinks difficult to consume in the winter. I will try it again should we ever get warm weather. I have a high need for protein and thought I would try this.

                                                          Lynn W: I'm not trying to gain weight, however, along with strength training I have gained 5 pounds in the past year. When I cut out all the allergen ingredients that was messing up my digestive system, I started gaining weight. This protein powder has none of the allergens that my body could not tolerate. Since I cut out all the allergen ingredients from my diet, I have gained 25 pounds. Sep 19, 2013
