“I tasted the chocolate version of GNC 100% Whey Protein and I liked it a lot. It mixed well with milk and had a nice chocolate flavor. It didn't have a thick texture, which is important to me. The level of sweetness was just right. It reminded me a lot of Carnation Instant Breakfast, but is packed with a lot more protein. After tasting the sample, I went to GNC and bought the chocolate and vanilla.”

“GNC will accept returns if you try it and hate the product (but you only of you took one or two tries - don't return half empty) Best tasting that I have had with skim milk”

“I purchased a small bag of this protein powder to see how it would taste, etc. I was pleasantly surprised. 21 g protein per scoop, unflavored. It mixes really easily in whatever I have tried. It's a great way to get extra protein in your "foods". I use this to make my protein coffee every morning...yummy. You can't even taste the extra powder that was mixed in with it. Great1”

“This product is good. I tried 3 flavors, and although somewhat chalky, it isn't too bad. Getting tired of them quickly, though, but probably because all I drink is liquids anyway right now.”

“it's too bland. Needs somethng added to it. It tasted very weak with water. Tasted like powdered milk when mixed with skim milk. If it had more taste it would be a better value. I will try to add more SF flavorings.”

“I mixed the French vanilla with 1 cup of skim milk and a couple of spoonfuls of low-carb yogurt, used a hand blender and drank right from the cup. Taste is good, easily drinkable on a daily basis for an added 27 or so grams of protein!”
