      Comments about OPTIMUM NUTRITION Optimum Nutrition 100% Whey Gold Standard - Cookies N' Cream (5.15 lbs):

      Get the 5.15lb container. It's definitely worth the money compared to buying the 2lb or even Isopure's 3 lb which is what I bought prior. The only advantage of Isopure is zero carbs and 50 grams of protein in 2 scoops as opposed to 48 g in 2 scoops of ON. Compare the ingredients and all of the BCAA's included in each serving of ON and you'd be insane to pass this up. This flavor is delicious when mixed with water and about 3 ice cubes. Not a chalky aftertaste like you get with other brands. BUY IT!!!

      Comments about OPTIMUM NUTRITION Optimum Nutrition 100% Whey Gold Standard - Cookies N' Cream (5.15 lbs):

      I've used many Whey products and decided to give ON a try since it always gets great reviews. I mix mine in a blender with a 1c water,1c crushed ice and 60-70g cottage cheese. This is the same way that I mix all my shakes. I've used ON casein before, and the liquid always pulls away from the ice (like a snow cone, not like a milk shake like other brands). I was hoping that the whey would be different. Nope same thing. The taste isn't BAD but it's far from good. Nothing about it taste anything like cookies and cream. I also bought ON Vanilla Ice Cream, and same exact thing. Very little flavor at all. For the price I was expecting a lot more. I've used other brands that cost much less, mix better, taste better and are actually an isolate. I wanted to say something positive so I'll assume it's going to be effective.

      This product has worked amazing so far. It mixes way better and easier than the GNC Extreme 60, tastes amazing, and has helped my recovery time. When i was on 60, i was constantly sore. I took this protein after my workout with a glutamine chew and there has been a huge difference.

      Tastes wierd at first have to get used to taste and then its good. Gained 5 pounds of muscle in a month using this product. I just started mixing this with greek yogurt and muscle juice, hopefully i see even better results. I take this in the morning sometimes depending on how hungry i am. Also take it before and after workout. Overall good product will keep buying it. Original price is kinda pricey but i always wait for good sales.

      I use this powder post-workout. The flavor is great in skim milk (I don't use too much milk because I think it tastes best when it's thick). This protein is clean, so side-effects are not an issue. Also, Optimum Nutrition makes outstanding products.

      Comments about OPTIMUM NUTRITION Optimum Nutrition 100% Whey Gold Standard - Cookies N' Cream (5.15 lbs):

      I mix mine with peanut butter, milk, yogurt, and ice in the blender and make an amazing tasting shake (I even use ice cream if I feel I could use the extra calories that week, since I also run). This protein not only taste great, but makes you feel full, and really reduces muscle soreness from a hard workout. I can tell a big difference in the length of the recovery time. The only issue is the little bit of gas it gives you the hour or two after you take it, but I find all protein does that for me. Great Overall Product.

      Comments about OPTIMUM NUTRITION Optimum Nutrition 100% Whey Gold Standard - Cookies N' Cream (5.15 lbs):

      I originally switched over to ON from the GNC brand because it was about $20 less, on sale, and just couldn't pass up that deal. For about $37, this stuff can't be beat. I was liking the chocolate flavor very much before (with some milk it tastes better than a chocolate frappe) so I decided to give the cookies n cream a try...won't be doing that again for sure. Very strange aftertaste BUT the results speak for themselves. I hit the gym 5-6 times a week and drink this for breakfast, pre- and post-workout. Recovery time is great, builds lean muscle, and is real easy to mix with a shaker. Give it a shot, but go for chocolate first.

      I've tried many of the popular flavors of whey protein but this is by far the best. It mixes up extremely well and the taste is amazing. It has little bits of cookie in it, not just a bland flavoring like you might expect. On top of that, the quality from Optimum is well known and I have seen a noticeable increase in muscle growth and strength since I've been taking it. I"ll never use another flavor of whey again!
