    I've never tried it, but NOW is one of the best supplement companies there is. So I would say go for it.

    I was just looking at the nutrition facts and there are way too many carbs for my diet. If your not watching your carbs I would say go for it. I eat 30 carbs or less per day though. Still its an excellent product and an excellent company. They have been around forever. I trust them. Just get it already. Worst case scenario is you don't like the taste. Get the Dutch chocolate, I don't think you can go wrong with chocolate. Even if you don't like the taste it can't be that bad.

    Here is the ingredient list,

    Ingredients: Whey Protein Blend [Micro-Filtered Whey Protein Concentrate (providing B-lactoglobulin, alpha-lactalbumin, Immunoglobulins and Serum Albumin), Ion-Exchanged Whey Protein Isolate (providing beta-lactoglobulin, alpha-lactalbumin, Immunoglobulins and Glycomacro Peptides) and Enzymatically Hydrolyzed Whey Protein Concentrate], Fructose, Cocoa, Natural Flavors, Free-Form L-Glutamine, Soy Lecithin, Xanthan Gum and Stevia rebaudiana Herbal Extract. Contains milk and soy derivatives.

    Looks like it doesn't contain any artificial sweeteners, which is always a good thing...

    yeah thanks t-bone. i like the no artifical sweeteners too.

    I was just about to post this when you mentioned the profile:

    serving size: 42 grams

    Ingredients
    Calories - 160 - %
    Calories from Fat: 15 - %
    Total Fat: 1.5g - 2%
    Saturated Fat: 1.2g - 6%
    Sodium: 81mg - 4%
    Total Carbohydrate: 12g - 4%
    Sugars: 7.5g - %
    Protein: 24g - 50%
    Calcium: 72mg - 8%
    Potassium: 137mg - 4%
    Stevia rebaudiana: 82mg - %

    kind of an interesting profile to me.. a whopping 42 grams gets you only 24g protein and a decent amount if carbs as you pointed out
