I always fall back to buying this. Overall what it offers I find it's a safe option - taste is pretty decent compared to others I've tried but took time to grow on me, I've had minimal issues with mixing consistency and it packs a good amount of protein and BCAA's. Still undecided if it is worth the extra $, but I suppose seeing I keep purchasing it I have decided.

Tried salted caramel flavour and quite impressed. I'm a big caramel fan and while it didnt quite hit the mark it was pretty good tasting. Consistency of the shake was also a little thin for my liking but it's a quality formula without fillers and sits at a nice price point.

Solid splits with low carb and fats and 24g of protein. Flavours leave something to be desired, but are still palatable. Still hard to justify splurging the extra $30 when I can get 5lb of nutrawhey, having similar splits and better taste. Generally the only ON products I get are their caseins, which they are umatched in the market.

Being the worlds best selling protein you would think it would mix well! For some reason this stuff does not mix great in water or milk. flavour is quite boring, I got extreme milk choc, and compared to Combat or syntha6 it tastes like watered down milo, only good thing about this product is a lot of servings for the cost, 24g protein a scoop and mainly isolate. But doesn't taste great and I wish it mixed better!

this is my go to protein, i like to try different brands but always come back to ON Gold Standard. taste 7/10. its definitely not the best tasting protein ever made however if you mix it with skim milk it does taste much better though. formula 10/10. pretty much one of the best formulas going around in my eyes, good amount of high quality protein per serve, good amount of BCAAs, low fat,low sugar and low carb. one thing i like about ON products are that they are very trust worthy so you know exactly what your getting. i do not trust some of these other supplement company's at all. this protein works well for cooking too. overall score of 9/10. i highly recommend this product no matter what your goals.

Used optimum for a good few years before switching to whey isolate, optimum offers a wide range of,flavours which keeps you,going especially in comp prep when things begin to get bland in your diet. Has a good amount of protein per serve,mixes well,and optimum is definitely a well trusted brand:)

Lives up to the hype in the fact it has no fillers pure quality whey protein.. whilst it may be a little bit more expensive you get way more serves out of a tub as its a isolate/concentrate formula.. the only thing that lacks it the taste, but for gains this powder lives up to its reputation.

I tried this after reading all the great reviews in many online posts, What I like most about this product is how easily it mixes in a glass and its percentage of protein per serving. So as far as its marketing hype is concerned optimum nutrition delivers as promised. The vanilla flavour tastes great, (I always buy vanilla no matter which brand I buy) this is one of the better tasting vanillas that I have tried. As for product performance, I used this product for maintenance rather than gain, and it did its job as needed. The only concern I have with this product is that it played havoc with my guts. Although it diddnt change my regular routine of my morning 8am poop, all shits while using this product were the consistency of muddy chocolate mousse, In short, tastes great, mixes well, a good pure form of whey, maintained mass levels, but because of the runny shits overall I rate Optimum nutrition gold label a 6.5
