        THE BIGGER PICTURE OF WHEY:
        Whey Protein Isolates are 90% pure protein by weight.
        They are the purest and most expensive form of whey protein that exists.
        That's why they are the first ingredients you read on the 100% Whey Gold Standard™ label.
        By using Whey Protein Isolates as our primary protein source, we're able to pack 24 grams of the purest, muscle-building protein per serving, and a lot less of the fat, cholesterol, lactose, and other stuff that you can do without.
        There's no question this is the standard by which other whey proteins are measured.

      I was using Muscle Milk prior to using this product and I always felt heavy. I switched to this product after doing my research and reading the reviews and I'm glad I made this choice. I would spend $10 for glutamine every few weeks and pay seperated for the protein powder. You get both products in one. I'm also glad that the ingredients are names that I can pronounce. O.N. has won me over. No heavy feeling. No bloating. Soreness is taken care of. Light on the stomach and easy to digest. I do Crossfit and this has be back at it and stronger. The hardest part is picking a flavor.

      After reading many great reviews, I considered trying a new flavor by ON. I always go for ON as they have a great product and it dissolves very well without any hassle. I was very disappointed with this product in terms of taste and consistency.

      1.) It tastes terrible. Cookies n' Cream? How about Carmel flavor that is way too sweet and overwhelming.

      2.) It's chunky

          This was one of the first flavors I got by ON and I loved it. Its funny people seem to be divided on this flavor, some love it and some hate it but I think its pretty good. Only downfall in my opinion would be that it does contain 3 grams of sugar per scoop, which is a bit high for my liking. However, that's purely my personal preference. Otherwise good product.

                ON Gold Standard as a whole is an excellent whey protein provider. Their powders are tasty and mix well with more than just post workout shakes, they come in handy for a nutrition nut pressed for time and a good meal.

                            I have stayed away from whey protein shakes for close to 10 years, primarily due to the fact that they gave me severe GI discomfort. The progress made over the past 10 years has completely shocked me. This product gave me almost zero GI discomfort. On top of that, the C&C flavor is outstanding. Mixed with ice and water, it tastes like a freakin milk shake. I will order this again however, I'm going to try other flavors first. Just ordered Mocha Cap. Will write a review once tried.

                                I really like this product. The flavor is a nice switch from the double rich chocolate. I have been using this brand for about 2 years. Tried some other brands and still return to gold standard.Great for pre or post workout i even mix in a little tiny bit of fat free milk and I swear I feel like I am drinking a milkshake.

                                    Not amazing. I only bought it because it was on sale. I purchased a cookies and cream flavored protein shake by another brand SYNTRAX, and it seriously tasted like cookies and cream. This taste more like cookie dough, maybe they should change the name of the flavor, because this was misleading. I don't think i will purchase it again unless im low on cash and im desperate. On the plus side, i will say it mixes really well with a fork and there's more bang for your buck considering there is more servings per jar than most other brands for bariatric patients.

                                        I have been using this product as a breakfast/lunch meal replacements as well as an after-workout protein supplement. The quality of the protein is outstanding, but the flavor is not my personal favorite. It is more like a coffee flavor, which I don't enjoy. It is tolerable mixed with bananas or with oatmeal. I have had great success with the chocolate flavor. The vanilla is awful, barely palatable. Good luck.

                                            I did not like the flavor at all. After drinking it 3 times i thought about throwing it out and getting another kind. Had to add chocolate casein protein to it to finish the bottle. Nitro tech cookies and cream protein tastes much better.

                                                For me, the only question was the flavor. I've been consuming Optimum Nutrition's protein ever since I started working out, because it simply is the best whey isolate! Well, now there is no longer any question. Cookies and cream! What more can I say, it's the best.

                                                    Maybe this is just me, but this flavor does NOT taste anything like "cookies and cream," and these cookie bits people keep describing are like tiny little specks that end up at the bottom of the glass--are they even necessary? If I had to give it a name, I'd call it "sweet & salty," "caramel," or maybe even "pretzels & caramel." It has this sweet/salty kind of taste...which is really good, actually. It's still a good flavor that I actually enjoy after a workout, but the name of it and the purpose of the specks boggle my mind.

                                                        This is my favorite flavor so far. I've tried other flavors ON offers, like Double Chocolate, Chocolate Mint (my 2nd fave), Strawberry, etc. But this one not only tastes the best, I also love the little cookie bits in it. Will definitely buy again!!

                                                            Cookies and Cream is the best tasting flavor. Yum. I bought Vanilla, Double Chocolate, Chocolate Mint and Strawberry at the same time and all I wanted to eat was the Cookies and Cream. Cookies and Cream seemed rich and creamy even when made with water. The flavor is amazing. The other flavors are average and I usually needed to add fruit or cocoa powder to make an acceptable tasting shake. The other flavors really benefited from being made with milk but that is a problem if you are trying to keep the calories low.
