    Select 55 chocolate tub finished! Short time but I was addicted to the sludge of epicness.

    I am basing my review on flavor/consistency vs profile because whey is whey and imo if you're taking in 1g per lb of protein regardless of source your probably getting more than enough building blocks. Nitrogen retention and other benefits of high protein diets aside...I can't justify reviewing a protein powder on profile.

    Flavor wise...The best chocolate I have ever tasted. Alot of people compare chocolate flavors to swiss miss but...I used to be 380+lbs. I got to taste alot more flavors than that!

    This is more like...dove chocolate bars melted down. Creamy and rich with that milk consistency coming through hard core. I have baked with this as well. Flavor doesn't die in the baking process like ON whey or myo fusion. Great buy. Should have got more!

    Glad you loved the chocolate! I'm with you on it having more of a chocolate bar flavor compared to other proteins. There's some great deals that just started on the 55 serving tubs if you're interested.

    Look forward to hearing what you think of C&C.

    First impression is its a little off. Not my fav flavor but yummy. The consistency of milk is where this shines. The taste was not bad but I would rather buy the chocolate at this point. I have also tried in cereal but no "oh my god" moment like the chocolate. Definitely worth a try but won't be a rebuy!

    I'm a C&C fan, but put chocolate ahead of it as well. It seems to be one of the toughest flavors to nail, and I really enjoy our take on it. Thanks again for your feedback, man.

    I think I saved the best for last man. Snicker doodle.

    I will say however I am having a hard time comparing the C&C flavor to anything else. It's kinda like....A mixture of 2 different C&C flavors. Really weird. Kinda like Edys cookies and cream slow churned icecream in powder form but different consistency and a tad sweeter.
    But then again it reminds me of those cookies and cream baking mixes from betty crocker.

    It definitely taste good but I think my expectations were high after trying that herseys C&C cereal. That ish is great!

    I will however try it in a baked cake Wednesday. I'll share my experience and see if it's out a this world when baked. For me....certain protein powders are just meant for baking. Cellucor red velvet is exactly that. I didn't like it much in a sludge but when baked into a cookie or cake ...it was the ****.

    I'm wondering what pes could do with strawberry cheese cake flavor or Apple pie. I'm overall very impressed.

    I think you're right. Snickerdoodle seems to be the favorite of many. The fourth flavor, "Chocladoodle", is pretty amazing as well.

    Interested in hearing how the cake works out. I haven't baked much with C&C, but Snickerdoodle has been great for cooking. I always look forward to it mixed with cream of rice and almond butter before I hit the gym.

    I'm excited for any future flavors as well. I'd personally love to see something involving caramel.

    Nice thread all though I'm now starving! Great feedback bro. Personally I prefer the CnC flavor over the other two but all are amazing. I'm not much on baking with the protein just shakes and pancakes so maybe this is why. Interested on hearing your reaction to SD. Thanks for sharing the experience!

    More detail.

    When you open the lid it smells like a sugar cookie with that whiff of cinnamon you would expect from a Snicker doodle.

    That's the exact taste as well. A sugar cookie with that kick of cinnamon. I can say it's probably the most unique flavor I have tasted.

    Has a creamy texture when mixed in a sludge and that milkshake like consistency when slurped down.

    Overall I am pleased with select and all 3 flavors. Taste is where this shines.

    I will say however the sludge texture is not exactly my favorite. I like phase 8 texture of basically icing alot better but select is more on Par with cellucor whey. Texture wise anyway. I also feel cellucor has a problem sticking to the bowl or w/e.

    All in all if you're looking for a protein powder of top notch quality and taste go with select ...
    It's the right selection.

    I will make some Snicker doodle cookies in a day or 2 and snag a pic. I will also take a pic of my sludge today.

    Glad you are enjoying SD. We really set the bar high with this flavor and as you can see in the industry many are trying to compete. SD cookies sound amazing right now!

    Companies sell protein powders to people who constantly improve so It's poetic that they themselves try and improve as well. Innovation is key and I don't think other companies trying to compete is a bad thing. In fact it's quite the opposite.

    I'm going to quote my dad on this ...


    " Being great at something is what creates the need for someone else to be better than you. Especially in business. Constantly becoming better prevents your downfall and is the only way to solidify success"

    You guys have raised the bar indeed! Keep going and you'll be the next optimum nutrition!

    Agreed. It is a win win for the customers. I by no means meant any disrespect by the comment. Just very proud of the company we have put together. It speaks volumes that we seem to always stay ahead of the curve when speaking on innovation.
