“The vanilla whey protein powder from Trader Joe's is excellent. The taste is phenominal without the after taste. The fact that it comes from Trader's makes it appealing because they always carry high quality products there.”

“I like that this protien powder isn't overly sweet. I'm using the chocolate flavor. Immediately post-op I found my taste for sweets was highly sensitive, so I couldn't drink the premade drinks. This was a welcome find. ”

“I can't believe how good this tastes!! Just like I'm drinking chocolate milk. I like it made in the shaker rather than a blender (can't stand the blender foam on my protein drinks) and have 3 drinks a day. Plus...it's half the price of most other protein powders out there. :-)”

“It mixed up well but there was something about the taste I just did not like. It wasnt bad and is worth a try because taste is individual but Im probably only going to keep it as a backup for emergencies. ”

“This stuff is a great way to get your protein. Mixed with a glass of skim milk, you can pack in almost 37 g of protein. It tastes like Carnation Instant Breakfast. I really enjoy this one. ”

“After trying so many brands, and spending so much money, I finally found something I like! I buy vanilla and chocolate, use one scoop of each with a tablespoon of decaf instant coffee crystals and 6 oz of water. It blends great without a blender and is not thick! I drink two of these a day and enjoy them!”

“The chocolate is very good compared to all the other powders I have tried--it mixes a lot smoother also! It is not lumpy or chalky tasting!”

“The Vanilla Flavored Whey Protein from Trader Joe's is very good prepared with skim milk and ice cubes. Tastes like a vanilla milkshake and with 2 scoops of the powder and 8 oz. of milk provides approximately 40 grams of protein.”
