Matrix and Nectar for me aswell :) I got sample packs thru mybariatricpantry.com

I loved the fact i could get samples of all the different flavors :) they have sample packs for bars too. I'm not a fan of the bars. Too many calories not much protein for me personally.  Dee

I third the Sytrax brand Nectar! 

My favorite is the Lemon Tea mixed with water. I also like the Roadside Lemonade (with water) and the Chocolate Truffle and Double Stuffed Cookie (both with almond milk). 

I ordered a pack of samples from Netrition.com so I could try a bunch of flavors. 

As an aside, while I like all four I listed, this week I seem to only be able to handle the Lemon Tea without feeling icky. So beware - you might go through a series of likes and dislikes!

Jay Robb. The vanilla tastes like vanilla cake batter, it mixes easily without a lot of foam, it's sweetened with Stevia and it's smooth and thin rather than thick and gritty.

Definitely the Chocolate from Premier at Sams Club or Costco, carries great taste, and a whopping 30 gr protein

Unjury protein powder because it is medical quality, mixes well, made in the USA, and I trust it as being the best for me.
