Anyone ever got bad batches?
Every once in a while I will get a bad batch where they forget to add flavor or sweetener. Sometimes I order from Nutraplanet and sometimes from Allthewhey. This time I ordered from Nutraplanet and got a bad batch and don't want to go through the hassle of returning it. So I was forced to get creative and add stuff to my shakes for flavor. Still love ATW though and will still buy their protein. Just sucks when I get a flavorless batch.

I've never had any like that. Two or three in a row that I got had a slighly fruity taste to them (I always order chocolate), but the past few I've ordered have been fine.

Guess I've lucked out because all of mine have always tasted good

I have been very fortunate as well. My flavors have always been great. Some are less flavorful, but never as bad as the OT has had.

I've had a few bad batches, but I've never had a bad cinnabun or cupcake batter and have gone through 3 of each so I stick with them and get other flavors elsewhere

I'd say about one in four 5 lb tubs end up having a taste that is not quite as good as usual. I've only had one batch that was so bad that I had to keep adding my own sweetener to in order to stomach it. I generally order cinnamon bun and cupcake batter.

once, I used it for cooking. there are always going to be some out of spec batches. if its really bad I would send it back. but usually you can just mix it with something else (I think they forgot the sucralose in mine that time. a little peanut flower and sucralose and its was fine)

The only one I haven't liked was Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup. I just didn't like the taste personally. I have never had a Cup Cake Batter or Cinnabun that tasted off. I like this protein since it isn't ion exchange and isn't packed with filler.

Yeah, I got a batch with no sweetener too. Chocolate. I keep it in reserve for when I run out - I'm bad about procrastination when it comes to ordering protein. 2 packs of Nutrasweet and its good to go.
Lets face it, low carb, low fat protein is never going to be fantastic. Some are better than others but Ive never had any that tasted anything remotely like a Peanut buster parfait...lol.

I've had one really bad batch and a few weak ones over the past two years of ordering from Nutraplanet and ATW.

Batch texture and flavor consistancy
Thats my recent experience.
Ill still order from them though as long as prices stay cheap.

What do you guys do when you receive bad batches? I got mine from Nutraplanet (5 lbs of Peanut Butter flavored Isolate) and it's pretty gross. Just completely bland... not sweet at all. I had one shake with it and ended up adding chocolate syrup to make it drinkable.
So, would you recommend me trying to send it back to Nutraplanet where I ordered it? Or is it not worth the hassle, and I should just take the loss on this batch?

I have ordered 10 or so 5lb containers, and 2 tasted a little off. I don't drink protein for the taste, though. if ATW is cheap, I buy it.

Out of the last 5 5lb tubs I ordered 3 of them were unbearable. The burnt plastic taste but was horrendous, and I can usually choke down anything. Atw customer services' unwillingness to do anything about this caused me to switch to TP. They have more/way better tasting flavors and they actually taste right every time.

In the last three orders of the same product and flavors I have received three different volume scoops.
I have never been a fan of buying protein on line from any retailer simply because the cost of shipping outweighed the discounted price from an on-line retailer.
I bought ATW from NutraPlanet because of the inexpensive price, the free shipping on orders above $75 and it was indirectly supporting NutraPlanet the retailer.
I am so very eager for NutraPlanet to release their line of protein so I can have the best of all situation: support my retailer, ensured quality, competative pricing and discounted shipping.

I order last week some ATW whey isolate cinnamon bun and to me it taste like vanilla protein with alil bit of cinnamon. other than that its ok. im able to mix it with a spoon. i like cup cake batter but sometimes it a hit or miss with the flavor.

Liar, no way you ordered last week and got it already! I just canceled my order after waiting a bit over a month and never going back!

What I dont understand is Ive read a few threads/post that there is a burn plastic/rubber flavor in there powder and or forgot to add sweetner etc. TO me this sounds like really bad Quality Control! After one of these issues, I would address it to the company and if nothing is done Move on to the next. While I understand its "good stuff" at a good price it seems the inconsistency/customer service at that company is lacking from what it once was. I tried some Cinnabun/cake batter flavored Iso in the past and It was good, but I cant imagine ordering a tub like I wanted too, only to get a "bad batch" and not have the company want to do anything about it. I hope all the issues get resolved, people get their product, tasting as it should might I add. Hopefully their issues get addressed ASAP and go back to being a good company to conduct your protein needs with.

Yeah, I totally feel that, and it makes you wonder if they can't guarantee the flavors from batch to batch, how about the nutritional profile? Are they able to guarantee that from batch to batch?
