    It is very sweet. White Chocolate was my favorite.

    The above is my own opinion and does not reflect the opinion of PES

    I went through 2 tubs of cookies and cream. Mixed very easy, easy on the stomach, taste was ok in water and pretty good in milk. It tasted really close to Syntha 6 cookies and cream. I enjoyed it and will probably try diff flavors in the future

    Really good protein in my opinion. Had chocolate and white chocolate and both flavours are amazing with great mixability! Would recommend it to you without a doubt

    Yes, they are good tasting and nice in water but they are on the sweeter side. French Vanilla was an incredibly sweet vanilla, White Choc is my favorite as well

    I have had 5lb containers of all the flavors and the white chocolate and vanilla cap are the best flavors
    and they are very sweet tasting and they mix up pretty good in a shaker cup but sometimes you will get
    a few protein lumps in your shake because Betancourt Big Blend does not add soy lecthin to their protein
    so that's why sometimes it doesn't mix up perfectly but the good thing it doesn't have any soy ingredients.

    Why is that a good thing? Just curious...

    It's pretty widely known these days that soy is not estrogenic.

    Soy is dirt cheap and now because whey prices have gone up all of a sudden articles are coming
    out in magazines trying to tell everyone that soy is good because the supplement co are looking
    for an alternative to put in their protein blends to help their profit increases but they don't really
    care about the consumer they care about their profits. I try to stay away from protein powders that
    contain soy as one of the major proteins but you still going to get a little soy in most powders from
    the soy lecthin which is used in almost all protein powders to help the mixability of the powder. I just
    refuse to pay for something that is cheap and might cause estrogen build up. I have read articles that
    say soy doesn't cause any estrogen in men but most of these articles are written by people who work
    for a supplement co. who is just trying to promote the soy which is in their products.
