“I don't know if this is more finely ground powder than other powders, but it mixes REALLY well. It also tastes really good. It has a really obvious protein taste the first 1 or 2 times, but after that, it isn't noticeable. This is my favorite. I've only tried the vanilla whey, but I plan on buying some additional flavors after pay day.”

“Mixes well with minimal effort and leaves little or no aftertaste. The Dreamcicle is not extremely different from the Vanilla.”

“What good is ANY protein supplement if you don't use it? I bought the Pina Colada flavor and LOVE it! It has over 25 grams of protein and is one of the few protein supplements that DON'T froth into a mess when mixed up into a smoothie! The taste is phenomenal and is one of the few protein products I fully recommend. ”

“I have been testing and testing products and have not found a product that I thought I could stick with for a long time until I tested the Jay Robb line of protein powders. I got various samples at my local HEB grocery store (another reason I like it) and mixed with vanilla soy milk and have absolutely loved every flavor. I'm going back to buy the tubs. I liked Spiru-Tein, however did not like the carb count, Jay Robb on average has 2-4g of carb in each shake which is more do-able. ”

“I love the Chocolate and the Dreamsicle. I've had the strawberry and I don't care for it and the Pina-Colada is ok. I haven't had the vanilla. This protien shake tastes great with just milk or with fat free peanut butter, or banana! Just stick in the blender for a few seconds and you've got a thick shake. For me that's important. I have never been one to eat breakfast, so the protein drink is a good substitute. With 25g of protein just in one scoop, add 8g of protein from the 1% milk, and you've got half your protein requirement for the day.”

“This is the most DELICIOUS protein i have EVER tried. I add a few slices of frozen strawberries and mix with water and it tastes out of this world. It's light and smooth without that nasty grainy whey flavor. The strawberry is my favorte with the chocolate [surprizingly] being my least favrote. Its a bit expensive, but i feel like the nutritional value and the flavor make up for the expense. ”

“My doctor recommends this because it is 100% whey isolate (NOT FROM CONCENTRATE). I love the vanilla with a glass of cold milk in the morning (adding even more protein, so in one 8 oz. glass I get 33 grams of protein)! I am glad that I found this early on in the process. I think it's YuMmY! ”

“This has become my go to protein shake product after trying many different things in my nearly two year journey toward weight loss and better health. The Jay Robb Product is exceptional in that it also has a substantial amino acid complex which is beneficial for us who lift weights as part of our exercise regimine. Having tried both the egg white protein product and the whey protein product, i have to say that I prefer the whey though both are some of the ebst tasting protein products that I have tasted on the market today.”

“The chocolate is delicious! Mix with fat-free milk, Carnation Instant Breakfast and you've got 42 g of protein. Mix Starbuck's Frappucino Mocha Lite (100 calories) with a scoop of Jay Robb for delicious coffee drink. ”

“This is the BEST and in my mind ONLY protein powder worth buying. It is so thin and light...I just blend it quickly with milk and drink it just like chocolate milk. It tastes GREAT...not like protein at all. In each scoop, there is only 113 calories and 24 grams of protein! This stuff rocks...seriously. Go buy it.”

“I picked up a few "sample" names and flavors. So far Jay Robb has the best test and consistancy. Not too thick like the other ones I've tried and has alot more protein in each with only 6 oz of water or milk. So far this is the winner.”

“WOW! I have tried a few protein drinks lately and they were all nasty. This tastes just like Nestle Quick in 1% milk! It has 24g of protein per oz, mixes very easily with a spoon, 113 calories, 4 fat cal, 62mg of sodium, 3.5g carbohydrate, no fiber or added sugar. It uses STEVIA sweetener, not aspartame or any other artificial sweeteners. Also available in Soy or Egg protein. Really great! I think I've found a keeper!”
