    Thanks
    If you are looking for a great protein with exceptional taste and mix-ability try Muscle Gauge Nutrition's line of protein powders. With an array of yummy flavors like cake batter and peanut butter crunch. There is quality pure isolate protein, isolate blends, pure whey, mass gainer, and casein. Not to mention they are one of the few lines that offer a natural line protein powders sweetened with stevia.

    Hey Beastybean thanks for the heads up about the Flurry protein I guess I won't be pulling
    the trigger on that one. I know you mentioned Muscle Gauge and I used that brand for about
    a year and I never had any issues with the protein but a number of people who I recommended
    the brand to liked it but they notice that when ever they reordered a flavor they liked the flavor
    didn't have the same flavor as their original container. Their flavoring is not consistant with each
    batch and if you do some searching there are some recent reviews about their protein having a
    lot of foam when shaken and some flavoring issues. That's why I stopped using the brand.
    Lately I have been mixing it up with different brands and Nutrex Muscle Infusion Black chocolate
    is FANTASTIC and their vanilla is also pretty good. I also like TopSecret chocolate and vanilla both
    taste good and mix well. I also have a container of MP Combat triple berry and this one was probably
    one of the best strawberry proteins I have tried and I am not a strawberry protein lover but this is a
    good one.
    I also have Dymatize Elite Gourmet chocolate/peanut butter WARNING stay away from this
    flavor it taste nothing like chocolate or peanut butter and Dymatize was nice enough to send me a
    replacement container but honestly it is the same as the first container no taste of choc or pb.
    I actually use it now as my post workout protein and I mix a scoop of AI RecoverPro Raspberry to give
    it some flavor and AI RecoverPro Raspberry makes anything taste good.
    I just finished a container of MRM cookies and cream micellar casein and I have to say it
    was one of the best cookies and cream that I have tasted, it had kind of a carmel after taste which I
    found to by unique and quite tasty. I had never used anything from this brand but since I liked their
    micellar casein I decided to give their whey protein a try so I ordered a 10lb container of their chocolate
    flavored Metabolic Whey and when I get it and crack it open I'll post up a review.

    I like steak or to be more specific top sirloin and prime rib. For protein powder, NOW whey protein isolate is good and also True Nutrition.

    Used to love Intek Evolution, but recently switched the ProNom 23 VCB .. Best tasting protein I've had in a long time and it has a good profile as well.

    I second that ^^^ you really cant go wrong with any controlled labs product! Definitely one of my favorite companies.
    No citizen has a right to be an amateur in the matter of physical training...what a disgrace it is for a man to grow old without ever seeing the beauty and strength of which his body is capable.

    Flurry is a terrible protein! I bought 4 tubs and the taste isn't very good, granted I've had worse. It also gives me flatulence (only other protein to do this to me is Recover-D), and the scoop is ridiculously inaccurate. Their 38g scoop is twice as big as my XF 38g scoop. Fillers indeed or big screw up. I got cookies n cream (sucks) and the chocolate lovers (sucks too but not quite as bad). I prefer XF, Dymatize, ON, or Combat Powder.

    I had a sample of the chocolate cupcake pronom and thought it was gross. Plus it has "Nutritional Creamer" listed as the first ingredient in "Other ingredients". I don't want creamer in my protein.

    Interesting about the creamer, that's not one that I usually see in protein.

    this always gets me too.

    bland taste with little flavor, and made from cheap and outdated processing methods.
    (they use ion-exchange processing)

    not a fan.

    My favorite is Protein Factory Bio fresh whey isolate. Taste is bland but the quality is top notch, no fillers, you can customize your package lol. Choose your sweetener. Hands down IMO, but if you're going for taste def better choices out there. Just my .02

    Muscle milk cytosport + chocolate milk+ regular milk + creatine= cheap post workout formula that has everything u need. I can't believe how many people pay 70$ for a tub of protein. F*****g ridiculous. U can get muscle milk cytosport at Costco for 24$ and its 2 maybe 3 months worth of servings. Oh and some cottage cheese before bed. This is cheap effective bodybuilding.

    Muscle Milk is far from being cost-effective, and the bags sold at the warehouse stores are not great values.

    Very true. Much to learn bud. Check out the reviews and the ingredients and who backs up the Beverly international protein, it's a little on the expensive side but I say the best quality.

    That does sound delicious. I'm going to pull out a ribeye for dinner tonight. Ever try basmati instead of brown rice though?

    I may have tried it at one time or another. Not sure though. I'll take a look next time I'm at the store.

    It's has a low GI load like brown rice but tastes a lot like white rice, best of both worlds!

    Rib eye is my personal favorite cut of meat. I can not wait till I'm back home in the states and I can grill up my own steaks. Deeeeeslicious.

    I prefer to get the musclefeast whey, unflavored. Nothing but protein, no sweeteners, no colors, no anti caking agents. They test it for purity and they've tested others, a lot of people do not live up to the label claim. I'll mix it with a little bit of sweetener depending on if it's after my workout or night, sometimes dextrose for after and some stevia other times. Add a little bit of all natural almond extract, perfect.

    Muscle feast whey isolate. You can actually taste the coco in it. Been using their protein for 3 years now and I don't see EVER changing. Might try something if it was free (which thankfully I have had a lot of opportunities to do that) but never spending my own money on anything else but their proteins.
