    eas vanilla tastes good but yeah the texture is gritty/chalky



    pro-rated chocolate tastes nasty but has smooth texture.


    Take your pick... but last time I looked, neither of them were so much cheaper than ON that I'd sacrifice the ability to drink my whey easily and enjoy it just to save what I could.

    I got the vanilla.. I was really hoping it would taste as good as ON Gold Standard vanilla, but I guess I was spoiled. I'd rather pay $80 for ON than $30 for EAS

    well 80 = 10 lbs of ON and 30 = 2.5 lbs of EAS right?


    When i was paying attention they only had 2.5lb protein bags at costco and they were around $25

    I could have sworn it was a 5lb bag I saw the other day, for $30. I considered picking one up but didn't.

    Use a blender/Magic Bullett to mix it and it won't be as gritty :hs:

    Probably the same thing I get at Sams Club... 6lbs for $29

    The chocolate tastes like a mixture of cocoa powder and sweaty socks. The vanilla is decent but doesnt' mix worth a shit unless you use a blender.

    But, the profile looks decent and its cheap. Lets me save the more expensive/better stuff specifically for pre/post workout.

    Yea its 6lbs, for 26.99 I think. I just finished a bag and I don't think it tastes bad :dunno:
    It was the first protein supplement I've ever bought though so I can't compare it to anything else.
    Only problems are that it's hard to mix and and its a mix of whey, soy, and casein.

    I was talking about Costco. Damn I wish there was a Sam's Club near me.

    I use it, but blending it with milk and ice cubes is the only way I can drink it.

    I just bought the 6lb vanilla flavor from Costco. It's only $30, and doesn't taste too bad.
    Looks like pretty decent stuff for the price?
