    120 calories
    24g protein
    1g fat
    3g carb (1g sugar)..sweetened with Splenda

    Taste is awesome, mixes great and 5.15 lbs for 28$ = :bowdown:

    I have my first tub of Chocolate Mint and it's good.. gonna go pick up another one of a new flavor and see how that is.. I've NEVER enjoyed protein in water, and this stuff mixes/tastes great in water.. even better in milk, but I am watching my calories/fat intake lately..

    Anyway, just thought I'd let you guys know, since I've never seen anyone talk about it.

    Is this better than ON chocolate?

    I only drink whey with water, and if it as good as you say it is I might have to jump on some.

    i still use the costco protein... they switched from wellements pro-rated to EAS brand... it's still 6 lbs. for $25, though, iirc

    only problem is, the only flavors that they have are chocolate and vanilla

    If i am in a hurry and need protein ASAP i usually go to Vitamin Shoppe, their prices are actually pretty good.

    Never tried their brand protein, just bought ON and muscle milk

    How is the Chocolate with water though?

    I have been looking for a decent tasting chocolate type protein for a good price that wont taste like ass when mixed with water.

    6lbs for $25 is amazing. Plus I get 10% off at Costco as well :)
