I posted this as my status update on FB (probably a bad idea because I can now imagine people flocking to comment on how much protein is good for you) but I figure I'll add it here as well..
Over the last 3 days I have tried out samples of the following Whey products (all chocolate flavored):
2. MuscleSci Lean Body
3. Optimum Nutrition's Hydrowhey
4. Universal Nutrition
and I have to say that none of these - NONE of these beats Dymatize Elite Whey Cafe Mocha.
Given that I have 6-9 scoops of whey a day, for me, taste IS damn important and none of these beats Dymatize. Not even close!
When I was in Texas in September 2011, I bought whey at GNC (I forget the brand but it had red and black colors and "PRO" something labelled on it as well) and the chocolate flavor there is truly unbeatable. From ALL the whey I have had including regular Whey Concentrate Gold Standard (ON) and Protein Factory (which is the cheapest) and True Protein (just a wee bit more expensive than Protein Factory), I have to say that the BEST TASTING Whey has been the GNC Whey I bought in the US and because it isn't available in India, I'm gonna go with Dymatize Elite Whey.
Just so there is some basis in what I like in my whey:
1. I like it to form small clumps at the top when I stir and mix it with a spoon - I like chewing while I drink. This is weird, I know, but this is what I like.
2. I need to be able to sip it over time…..most of my 3 scoop protein shakes are sipped over 1-2 hours. So it really does need to taste good.
Thats about it actually.
