    I am strong now. This whey protein gives me the strength to move mountains. Build walls. Break them back down. Build another wall. Call my mom and tell her I love her. Have profound conversations with myself about the falsehoods that is ego and realize that hyper masculinity is an illusion to mask years of fearing things I don’t understand and limited thinking. Thanks whey for giving me the brute strength to overcome my fears of becoming a ballerina.

    My message is the same as quite a few others but I wanted to share my experience in hopes that more people become aware.

    I have been using Optimum Nutrition protein for 10 years now. In my eyes it has always been the industry standard. Good ingredients, great taste, no BS.

    I received my last 5lb tub of Vanilla creme yesterday and made a shake. It was absolutely disgusting. The shake was so sweet I gagged but reluctantly finished it. This was at night. The morning after I had diarrhea. Browsing through the comments it seems other people are having the same experience too.

    Surely this is due to the recent change to the formula where they added sucralose, an artifical sweetener.

    I’m now stuck with 5lb of inedible powder and left with the task of finding a new company to purchase my protein powder from.

    Well done, ON.
    Oh, and thanks for the diarrhea.

    Best protein on the market. For everyone saying the formula has changed… as far as the Double Rich Chocolate I’ve been getting for YEARS, there is no change as of a week ago (Jan-2018). No Sucralose. Just avoid flavors like Cake Batter, Ice Cream and Banana.

    Let me preface with, I have purchased this numerous times in the past, it’s my go to flavor (Double Rich Chocolate) and tastes great. I ordered one recently and it had a cracked lid (image 1) (shipping box is undamaged), I figured these aren’t air tight so probably no big deal however, it tasted disgusting which I attributed to the cracked lid so I ordered a replacement.

    Replacement came, cracked lid again, not quite as bad as the first (image 2) (shipping box is in perfect shape), didn’t even break the seal and ordered another replacement.

    Second replacement came, no cracked lid but tastes just as disgusting as the first one. I don’t know what happened with these recent orders but these are undrinkable, they taste watered down and leave a horrible cardboard/chemical taste in my mouth.

    I ordered a 10lb bag in the hopes that it will come from a different batch because, as mentioned, this is my go to flavor and I know it normally tastes great.

    Normally a 5 star but for this order I’m adding a 1 star review to their repertoire.

    UPDATE: I received my 10LB bag and it tastes great so there is definitely a bad batch of powder out there, maybe it’s a bad batch of tubs, not sure but glad I finally have more powder.

    I used two flavours in two months 1st-banana cream
    2nd-double rich chocolate
    Both products taste were really amazing and yummy..
    But i will suggest you to buy duble rich choclate as it contains less cholesterol, less carbohydrates, less fats.. As compared to other flavours..

    Everything about this product is good.. I took this product for two months and i can see my body transform..
    U can take this post workout.
    If you wana loose weight.. This can help u if u follow proper diet…

    It tasted like vomit! My husband and I try different flavors every time we order .. this by far is the worst I have ever tried! I feel like I am on Fear Factor every time I drink it but there is no prize at the end! 🤢 This is a review on the flavor Double Rich Chocolate and there is nothing rich about it! 😝

    Guys, there are two ways to find out the authenticity of this product. First, scratch the hologram which reveals 8 digit code. Enter this code in Bright commodities website which will confirm it’s authenticity. If you are still not convinced then call Glanbia (manufacturer) on 011 49594959 and tell them your batch code. They will confirm it’s authenticity.!!!

    I bought this 2 times.. First time was really good. Now second time.. The powder does not melt entirely.. I can feel the granules like sand…Maybe they added something new in it or I don’t know really.. Can some one explain please ? Should I still drink it ? I am thinking to return it and buy it for somewhere else.. I attached a photo..

    Ordered the product on january sale and recieved today on 26th jan I was happy as I bought it for a very low price than the market and as soon as I got my hands on the product I opened it the first thing that shocked me that there is no interior lid covering this was strange and unusual as the product always comes with a interior lid although the seal was intact so I thought everything is right but as soon I smelled it my doubt on the authenticity of the product becomes crystal clear, I took one scoop and mixed it with water bingo it is not mixing with water. I dont know how this happens as the seal is from On is intactand also the distrubutor seal is also ok but how could this happen I cant understand that, abd from now no protein from internet. Tchao

    – Mixes really well and quickly with anything including a stick.
    – Tastes like a milk shake even if you just mix it with cold water.
    – Has very little sugar (1g per serving)
    – Comes with a scooper.

    – The only con I found is that it does not taste as good at room temperature. So since my gym is like 3 blocks away from my home, I ‘wheyt’ till I get home to drink it heh.

    I ordered the double rich chocolate (DBC), thanks to reviews indicating it did not use sucralose (and it does not as of 06/12/18).

    I’ve never used ON before, I do not know if it “used to” taste better. As of 06/12/18 the DBC flavor tastes roughly like burnt brownie flavored cardboard. Thing is, I understand without a SUPER sweetener, it can be difficult to achieve flavor, but be forewarned, it is AWFUL tasting. Consistency remains almost the same as whatever liquid you have mixed it into (adds no extra thickness). I tried both water and milk.

    On the positive front, it is jam packed with goodies with every scoop. It mixes extremely well (I use milk mainly) and when mixed with other powders, it continued to mix well (I add extra probiotics and stuff for my joints).

    I let it sit for a few hours on the counter, everything settled and needed a slight jostle, but (aside from being warm) mixed right back up and tasted exactly the same with the same consistency, which is great as I have had powders that turn to sludge if you let it sit for too long.

    For the price @5lbs and 30g scoops, you can’t beat it. There are better tasting powders and better powders overall, but you can expect to pay $50-$60 for 2lb for those, I find this powder to be an excellent middle ground if you can stomach it, especially with the prevalence of sucralose finding its way everywhere.

    For those not in the know, please Google sucralose, it won’t bother everyone, but if you’re like me, it did affect my digestive system negatively and since removing it from my diet I have been doing much better.

    I’m not a body builder by any means. I work out about three times a week and I use the protein powder for a post work out shake or for a quick breakfast. I’m not on strict diets or anything like that, so my review is from a regular joe who works our mostly to stay in decent shape and stay alive. The protein powder as a shake is pretty delicious. No weird aftertaste like many other powders, and it’s really filling. I’m sure most “pros” know all the tips but for those of you that don’t, it helps if you mix the powder with whatever liquid you prefer, I use soy milk, before adding ice. If you put everything in at the same time the powder gets clumpy. I don’t know why, but that’s been my experience. I use a blender not a shaker. Again, the chocolate malt is what I like and it tastes great.
