    Someone said you could get 6lbs for $25 or something like that at Costco.

    Not sure which brand it was or how it tasted.

    90% of the time you are going to save a lot of money if you buy online :)

    I usually buy from www.bulknutrition.com or www.dpsnutrition.com

    This stuff is pretty good but I've only tried the Cafe Mocha
    http://www.bulknutrition.com/?products_id=955

    I heard Champion Pure whey is good. And IDS is good (cheaper from DPS) Nitrean is really good too but you can only get it from www.atlargenutrition.com

    If you go with ON whey only get chocolate or choc mint, all their other shit is nasty :barf:

    I have had GNC, ON and allthewhey so far.

    GNC was shit.

    ON is more expensive than allthewhey but tastes better and is FAR EASIER to mix. That is my biggest pet peeve with allthewhey. it is a bitch to mix up properly and I am a poor college student with no blender. I've used nalgenes to shake em up once in a while but normally I put a lot of milk and protein in a big cup with my stirring rod and go at it.

    But, allthewhey is super cheap.

    I think I paid $20 for a 6lb bag last time I was at Costco. It tastes fine to me...I didn't find any difference between their "Pro-Rated" brand and ON whey that I ordered from BN a few years back. Coctco used to offer 10lb tubs for $25...I liked that deal better personally (but I do believe that brand was not quite as good as the current stuff).

    online is better

    but do a google local search for a store called Better Health. They usually carry some ON whey, but its a little more expensive than buying online.

    sometimes walgreens or rite-aid carry some whey, but it varies because each is individually owned.

    I always buy protein at COSTCO. its 6lbs for $25 dollars which is by far the best deal I've seen. Each scoop has 25 grms of protein (i take two scoops per shake with 12 oz of milk). They have Chocolate and Vanilla. Ihave only gotten the chocolate but with milk it dosen't taste that bad.

    How much do they charge there for protein? I've been in the Whole Foods near my house once or twice...I think they were asking twice as much for everything that you can get anywhere else.
