Unsatisfactory shipping
The product is great. The condition in which I received it was pathetic. The lid was not properly secured and the plastic seal was holding it on. The mix was even coming out of the container but held in by the plastic seal. To make matters worse, the supplier is only 3 hours away and it took over 2 weeks for me to receive the shipment.

Overall Great Product
Not the best-tasting powder I've ever tried, but it goes down well enough. However, the real draw for me was the fact this powder is lactose-free. This powder doesn't upset my stomach at all and seems to get the job done.

So refreshing and such high quality
LOVE THIS PRODUCT!!! The flavor is unique and a nice spin on the delicious chocolate ON sells for hydro whey line. Very impressed and happy with this and wish it came in the larger size.

Would get 5 stars, but it is pricey. That being said, I do think it is worth the $. Always a staple of my diet. Great protein without the chalkiness that many protein powders have. The chocolate mixed with water reminds me of Yoo-hoo

how does this product compare to the gnc amp protein?
A shopper on Apr 5, 2013
BEST ANSWER: The Optimum Nutrition Platinum Hydro Whey® has 30 grams protein and 1 gram fat per serving with no sugars. The hydrolyzing allows the proteins to be absorbed quicker for a faster building process. It is twice the price of the GNC Pro Performance® Amp 100% Whey Protein. The GNC product has 20 grams protein, 1 gram fat, and 8 grams of total carbohydrates per serving. It uses MicroSorb™ Amino Technology to get the protein to absorb quickly. Both are used to build muscle and need appropriate diet and exercise to be effective.

THis product contains similar amino acid combinations as gnc wheybolic extreme 60. What makes this new product more special or effective?
A shopper on Jan 11, 2010
BEST ANSWER: GNC's wheybolic has a higher amino acid profile but unlike ON's hydrowhey they use a combination of whey isolate, whey concentrate, and hydrolized whey.
