Unflavored powders can be difficult to find locally, I don't know that I have seen it in stores, and I do look if I happen to be near that section as I'd like to buy it too.    The one I have is "Any Whey" brand and I like it...but i had to order online, I think I got it from Amazon but not sure as it was quite a while ago. 

 I'm a little surprised they told you to buy unflavored....personally I think that would be pretty icky if I had to mix it up and drink it down.  There are a lot of good whey isolate protien powders in stores, but they are flavored.  If you look at the labels you will be able to see calories/carbs .  Mostly I go through a lot of vanilla flavor because I can add things to it to change up the flavor.  I'm not so particular about the brand, in 2 years I have only found one that I didn't care for so I used it as an additive for baking.

I heard unflavored isnt tasteless, so maybe dont use that with your drinks. Unflavored is better to add to soups and baking, etc.

Walmart has a fruit punch flavor. I know many other brands have flavors like that too. If you want to avoid milk, I would suggest a non-creamy flavored powder like the punch, etc.

I replied to your other post, so you know about Isopure which is fruity, and for chicken soup and strawberry sorbet which doesn't need milk. I think your best bet for finding one that suits you would be to go to and order sample packs. This way you can try several without spending a lot of money. If you still want unflavored, Unjury sells it also and the upside is that if you don't like it, it can be returned for a full refund.

Me personally I couldn't stand the Isopure I thought it tasted horrible.

Jay Robb is decent. You can get it from Amazon or at Vitamin Shoppe. It's WAY cheaper on Amazon, and they deliver fast. LS6FO/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1359295742&sr=8-1&keywords=jay+ robb+unflavored+whey+protein

I buy the unflavored syntrax nectar from Amazon.  I've yet to find unflavored at a brick and mortar store.   I use it in my coffee, then flavor my coffee how I want it, since I am not a fan of the vanilla flavored powders in my coffee.   I rarely use it for anything else, but figured the unflavored is the most flexible powder to have.    I do not drink shakes, I almost always rely on getting my protein from solid protein (chicken, fish, meat) or mostly protein foods (greek yogurt, cheese, nuts, seeds).

I have gotten "unflavored" at Kroger - I think it was around $9 a can.  It is near the pharmacy.
