    Muscle Milk: Not as good as I hoped


    Well I gave Muscle Milk a try. I got the Dark Chocolate and Banana Cream. I've only tried the banana three times so far but since it was so sweet I have not tried it again since. I also get a slight headache from the sweetness. Would mixing with milk help?

    if you bought muscle milk for the taste you mine as well of went to the dinner down the block and ordered chunky monkey milk shake with a straw. Muscle milk is a WASTE of money. All it is, is protein and some extra fat and carbs. Its better to make your own weight gainer if your trying to gain weight OR if your trying to cut just buy regular 100% whey protein by optimum nutrition. Its a LOT cheaper and economical way to gain muscle, strength and size. sorry cytosport

    muscle milk is very low-carb (12g per serving). it's high in fat but that isn't a bad thing for everyone. it depends on you goals. if, for example, your goal is to build muscle, you won't mind the fat.
    Dark chocolate flavor was disappointing to me as well. i could live on the chocolate malt and root beer flavors though. Jesus they're delicious.

    Yeah, I was doing better simply using chocolate ON whey, tablespoon of natty p-nut butter and a tablespoon of Dale Alexander fish oil.

    Oh really? At NP 2.5lbs of MM is 19.99 and 2lbs of ON Whey is 23.95... I like the chocolate milk and rocky road. Cookies n Cream and the chocolate caramel aren't bad either. Also, they're all much better with milk than with water IMO.

    Try half milk and half cold water.

    WTF are you people talking about? Muscle Milk is THE best tasting protein powder on the market. Period.

    Yeah, you guys are giving me a craving just talking about the stuff.

    Muscle milk with some milk tastes just like a smoothie. The blueberries and cream sounds delicious, I think I'm gonna buy some tonight.

    yeah I don't know either.. if they could make whey/isolate taste that good I wouldn't ever switch proteins again..

    the only deterrent is the high cals, which is a red flag to some people but god dammit -- its delicious

    nobody has anything that touches the muscle milk light chocolate peanut butter. But its $20 for a 1.5lb that gets you 15 servings. I have bought an awful lot of those damn $20 jugs too. I've tried a few other flavors, but the chocolate peanut butter just compltely kills. I actually like All The Whey's regular chocolate better than the muscle milk.

    Thats the other problem above comparing muscle milk regular to other proteins

    2.5lbs of MM is 19.99 and 2lbs of ON Whey is 23.95
    Sure but that 2.5lbs of MM gets 16 the servings out of it as 32g/protein for a total of 512g protein, the ON whey does 30 24g servings for a total of 720g of protein. So even at 10% more cost, the ON still gets you more protein/$ than muscle milk.

    12 carbs is not my definition of "very low carb" considering I only eat 30 carbs a day.

    I must beg to differ, Cookies and Cream muscle milk has made my eyes water with joy when drinking it. Maybe our proteins shouldnt taste like milk shakes made from heaven, but hey i wouldnt go back to the chug-a-thon i had to do to force other proteins down, i say drink up and savor the flavor.

    I love the C&C and the chocolate mint MM. The chocolate mint mixed in with sugar-free chocolate pudding is an easy way to satisfy a sweet-tooth on a cut.

    Horchata is good too.

    Egg nog around Xmas is a DAMN good egg nog replacement. It's so close - it's scary.

    Blueberries rocks.

    Only one I didn't think was awesome was orange creme - not too much on the flavor like the others.

    I was making my MM Cookies&Cream Colligiate with whole milk(I need the cals at work) and it was WONDERFUL. Then I tried it mixed with water one day, and it was undrinkable. (Granted, I DID drink it, but I didn't enjoy it. And it wasn't like,"Hmmm, this really isn't very good made with water.." it was more of a,"Okay, this **** is nasty made with water."

    I almost think that that is where the pretty strong difference of opinion comes from on MM's taste. I think the people who think that it's aweful have never tried making it with milk.
    The Truth is, there is no Truth.
