      • Whey Protein Isolates, Primary Source

      • 77 servings
      • 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.
      • Beyond the Basics:
      • Packed with Whey Protein isolates (WPI)
      • Higher Protein Percentage (24 grams of protein; nearly 79% protein by weight).
      • Includes Hydrowhey®, strategically hydrolyzed, low molecular weight whey peptides to make protein faster acting.
      • Contains Lactase and Aminogen® digestive enzymes to enhance utilization.
      • Whey Protein Microfractions including Alpha-lactalbumin, Glycomacropeptides, Beta-lactoglobulin, immunoglobulin G (lgG), Lactoferrin, Lactoperoxidase, and various growth factors.
      • Over 4 grams of Glutamine & glutamine precursors.
      • More than 5 grams of BCAAs (Leucine, isoleucine, and Valine) in each scoop.

    Directions
    To encourage a positive nitrogen balance,consume approximately 1 gram of protein per pound of body weight per day from a combination of high protein foods and supplements. For even better results,consume your daily protein allotment over 4-6 small meals spread evenly throughout the day.

    Warning
    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.

    There is nothing wrong with the taste! I mix it with nonfat milk, a little creatine, 1-Tbsp of Fiber and maybe a banana. It tastes fine and has no clumps. I take it as being an isolate I also have less gastro issues.

    As for muscle gain, I think its more hype than anyting else but I do take for the protein content, even though there are other brands with 30 grms or more per serving.

    The other reason I like it is the weight content of 5Lbs or more. My other brands are just under 2Lbs which means I have to travel to buy more often.

    I like it and will purchase more.

    BTW, Optimum Nutritions Opti-Men vitamins are the boss. The added energy rush gives me just enough to pump it up!

    I really think cookies & cream Gold Standard is overrated. If you read the ingredients a couple of red flags showed up for me. One, this flavor has High Fructose Corn Syrup in it (which is really bad, read about HFCS on google). Two, Sucralose is in it as well which artificial sweetener. Three, the after taste is not good. Something about this protein makes my mouth swell up alittle bit. However, this product did bulk me up but if i could go back i would choose a different flavor and probably a different brand. I just switch to Dymatize Nutrition Elite Whey Chocolate and I have to say it's the best tasting and best overall protein on the market. It does NOT contain Sucrose, High Fructose Corn Syrup, Fat, Fillers, Maltodextrin, Aspartame. DN Elite Whey Protein is also cheaper then Gold Standard right now. If you are still a die hard ON fan then check out there Natural Whey Protein products. They will not have HFCS or additives.

    I've been using cookies and cream protein powder from a different company but wanted to save on calories and carbs. Worst choice ever! The taste is awful. I'll add a few more calories and carbs to my diet to get something that I can swallow.

    I love the Gold Standard Whey powders, but cookies 'n cream is so gross. Went for the 5 pound tub. Worst choice ever. Even with mixing 2lbs of chocolate into about 4lbs of cookies 'n cream, still tasted bad.

    ANY other flavor is great. STAY AWAY FROM THIS ONE.

    I followed the instructions on the container. I was super excited to try it because I LOVE cookies and cream ice cream but this tastes nothing like I was expecting. I cannot wait to finish it so I can finally get a different flavor.

      I have been a fan on ON protein powder for a long time. Cookies and cream is my favorite type of ice cream so it was only right that I tried this. The taste is awesome, not to sweet and it mixes easily in a shaker.

            I have used ON's protein powders for a long time. They taste good and are low in carbs. I just shake it up with water and drink it for in between meals then if I want a treat I mix it with almond milk and freeze it, that way if I am craving something for dessert I take it out let it thaw a bit and it takes the place of ice cream

            I don't know if they changed the formula or not but I purchased this product in Oct 2013 and it tastes nothing like cookies and cream. It has more of a coffee taste. I use it after my workouts and I use the powder to make meal replacement shakes. The price was good but I can't wait until I finish this

              I was hoping that this tasted like oreo cookies and milk but it does not even come close. I am not sure what it tastes like but it is definitely not a cookies and cream taste. Now I am stuck with this big container for a while. I should have followed my first mind and stuck with vanilla or chocolate.

                    Personally for me the taste is one of the best things about this protein. It mixes insanely easy (only takes about 4 or 5 shakes before it's completely dissolved). And it works I mostly use it as post workout protein and I can feel the difference

                    The plus side to this protein is that it has quality protein and alot of proetin per serving which is awesome!
                    The only downside is that the taste was not Great but it wasn't bad. The taste was ok.

                        I like this flavor a lot. But I must say, at first i didn't like it too much because to me it taste a bit like coffee rather then cookies & cream unless you use whole milk, which I cant do. But i would recommend this no doubt.

                                Out of all the protein i have tried, this is by far the best in price, quality and taste. They mix well and i really enjoy this flavor with water or milk. You won't be disappointed.

                                        I really think cookies & cream Gold Standard is overrated. If you read the ingredients a couple of red flags showed up for me. One, this flavor has High Fructose Corn Syrup in it (which is really bad, read about HFCS on google). Two, Sucralose is in it as well which artificial sweetener. Three, the after taste is not good. Something about this protein makes my mouth swell up alittle bit. However, this product did bulk me up but if i could go back i would choose a different flavor and probably a different brand. I just switch to Dymatize Nutrition Elite Whey Chocolate and I have to say it's the best tasting and best overall protein on the market. It does NOT contain Sucrose, High Fructose Corn Syrup, Fat, Fillers, Maltodextrin, Aspartame. DN Elite Whey Protein is also cheaper then Gold Standard right now. If you are still a die hard ON fan then check out there Natural Whey Protein products. They will not have HFCS or additives.

                                            A friend of mine that lives in Ireland, told me about this product. He said it's more expensive in Europe, compared to the prices in the US and it really is !!! (70 Euro for 5lbs =$99.87). This site rocks! I am ordering this product to achieve my goals. I'm a woman with a really nice athletic body but not a lot of muscle on my 'bones' lol I want to become super fit before i join the military. I believe this product will help me become healthier and happier with myself! Cheers!

With over 20 g in one scoop and more than 77 servings, it can last for a good time, all the while maintaining the great taste that is Cookies & Cream!

                                                    This is by far the best protein on the market. It's not pricy, but it still gives you the best results. Awesome product, and it also tastes great, just like a milkshake. Been on this product since I first started working out, because of its reputation, and now i know why people said it was so awesome.

                                                        I made the bold move of switching from Syntha-6 to ON. At first i was using water like i always did with S6 but for some reason it wasn't happening i was beginning to dread the thought of having to drink this after my workouts. I recently came from a deployment were milk was a luxury and all they had was milk in a box or Silk (soy Milk) and cold was out of the question. But they did have cold waters in the gym. So i tried it with cold water still wasn't happening. Milk! Yes Milk! Made this thing come out the box even with my 2 scoops of Glutamine. I was about to call it quits but this stuff rocks with milk. Taste awsome! So just remember Milk if you have your doubts. Oh yeah and taste just like cookies n creme! By far a not so bad lean-protein builder.

My favorite flavor is cookies and cream, but they all taste good in general. It really makes a difference in muscle growth and you'll never be the same after you've tried it.

Powder is the only way to go to get the amount I need, and the very first brand I ever tried was Optimum Nutrition. It was also the last one I will every try, because it's affordable, delicious, and all-around satisfying. So I thank you, Optimum Nutrition Whey Protein, for all the strength you're helping me gain!

I gave it a try and loved it. It tastes exactly like the flavor listed on the tub, unlike other proteins who are sometimes just unbearable to consume. Whether I mix it in milk or water it mixes well, whether it's mixed in a shaker cup, blender or with a spoon. As for the price, it's really cheap for a high quality protein with 75-80 servings in each jug. Good amino acid profile, low carb, low sugar, 24 grams of protein per scoop. What more could you ask for in a protein powder?

I always full it back up with water at the end and drink the water with those bits in it.
