What customers say about "Key Specs"
Cellucor Cor-Performance Whey Whey Protein Isolate & Concentrate Blend Powder with BCAA
  • Husband and I use every day to supplement our protein intake. We add 1 scoop to our morning coffee, hot cocoa or mocha, and we add a scoop to our decaf cafe lechero every evening after dinner.
  • The cinnamon swirl flavor is the best because you can drink it alone or add fruit
  • I like the taste and it's a good flavor contrast from the same ol' chocolate or vanilla. Reminds me of Cinnamon Toast Crunch cereal.
  • Delicious! Tastes like a snickerdoodle to me!
  • Perfect for protein pancakes ! Delish as a smoothie or just a shake ! Great flavor.
Optimum Nutrition Gold Standard 100% Whey Protein Powder, Double Rich Chocolate, 5 Pound
  • Quality product, few ingredients. High percentage by volume of protein per serving.
  • The price vs volume vs protein per serving ratio can't be beat. Very happy with my purchase.
  • This product has the best volume to price ratio I could find. It tastes great, and it really seems to help.
  • Optimum Nutrition definitely manufactures quality supplements and this is probably their highest volume product.
  • Double chocolate flavour taste really bad!! Please don’t buy it. It used to taste very good but I don’t know what happened.

What customers say about "Amount Per Serving"
Cellucor Cor-Performance Whey Whey Protein Isolate & Concentrate Blend Powder with BCAA
  • In terms of protein powder, it tastes great! It can be a dessert substitute, but it isn't overly sweet. My main goal was to find a protein powder that is low carb and low sugar, with no creatine, and good flavor options.
  • Great tasting and effective supplement!
  • It is definitely a quality product and I recommend all the cellucor products to anyone who asks
  • After workouts tastes okay and is easy to mix easy to swallow
  • I'm so happy with the results I recommend this product to everyone y'all not gonna be sorry
Optimum Nutrition Gold Standard 100% Whey Protein Powder, Double Rich Chocolate, 5 Pound
  • This whey contains little else in terms of sugar or carbohydrates so you know there are no fillers.
  • This protein, along with physical activity, will help to stave off muscle loss. Their article made good sense, so I am following their advice: eat lightly and eat protein along with enough fiber.
  • This product is 100% whey from isolates so if you're trying to hit a protein goal while keeping your daily caloric intake down, this is for you.
  • It has worked wonderfully so far allowing me to put on some mass without gaining the fat of other protein supplements. I just ordered another batch and I am a proud user of ON Whey!!
  • If anyone has recommendations on a good protein shake that will give loads of energy for pre-workout let me know.

What customers say about "Features"
Cellucor Cor-Performance Whey Whey Protein Isolate & Concentrate Blend Powder with BCAA
  • It mixes well, adds a rich creamy flavor, and gives us 25 grams of extra protein every day.
  • Came sealed a big bottle with it. it taste really good and delivery was safe.
  • Such an amazing flavor. Powder smells like RumChatta to me. Mixes great with almond milk. Good with water too!
  • No complaints about the product, but the packaging looked like it was punted at a football game
  • Tastes bad with water and the mixability was pretty bad I had previously tried cellucor in other flavors but this one sucked imo
Optimum Nutrition Gold Standard 100% Whey Protein Powder, Double Rich Chocolate, 5 Pound
  • Taste is good, not with water but fat free milk
  • 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).
  • In milk it's just about as good as a chocolate milkshake. I have to resist the urge to drink more just for the enjoyment. In water it's not quite that good but still very tasty.
  • Mixes really well and quickly with anything including a stick.
  • Everything in the box was in perfect condition except for the gold standard so that means they put it there all damaged in the first place.
