Thread Details

Lots of ON protein fans on here - good news because ON prices have been through the roof this year. The new Costco coupon book for January shows Costco will begin carrying ON Performance Whey Isolate, 4.5 lbs in vanilla. Item # will be 705085. From 1/2/13 to 1/27/13 there will be a $12 off coupon, limit 2. Have not been able to price yet, but usually Costco's prices are fair and the $12 off per tub should make this pretty slick for ON Cool

This is supposed to be a Costco exclusive per their mag. 30g protein per serving / 55 servings per tub.

Just picked me up some ON Isolate on the "Whey" home. (Get it, I made a funny!) after tonight's work out, got my drank on and it mixes excellent, taste just like a milk shake, good buy. Get your tickets now to the gun show! bounce

this is 100% isolate. don't think you're gonna find another major brand out there that's 100% isolate for this price.
agreed. I think that's what's getting missed. ON has a performance line that is a whey blend. This (which I have never seen before) is whey isolate. More expensive process to filter, hence the price on the product. Isolate whey runs very expensive across all brands that offer it.

could you elaborate a bit more on the flavor?
does it thicken up like a milk shake, or is it just taste?
Also, have you tried mixing in cocoa powder for a chocolate flavor and did that taste good, or do you think this might possibly work?

For those complaining that it's not a good deal, It's an excellent deal.
this is whey protein isolate.

NOW brands whey protein isolate, which I have used and love, costs 63 on amazon for a 5lb tub, so this is a spectacular deal.

Your precious ON whey standard is mostly concentrate, which has crap absorption rates compared to whey isolate. Now for most people absorption rate won't matter but I work fasted ala Leangains, so it's incredibly important to me.

Taste like a vanilla milk shake. Not chalky or super think. With 8oz water, has consistency of milk. Haven't tried mixing it with anything else to enhance flavor since I like the milk shake taste. I'm sad when reaching the bottom of my shaker cup. There are different whey products listed now on SD but after working out bi's and tri's to failure yesterday, I was ready for another round at the gym today. Happy with my purchase.

just picked it up. Whey ISOLATE for this price is a steal.. Don't listen to the other fools who say this isn't slick. Isolate is the way to go.

ever since i tried body fortress whey isolate vanilla from walmart i have begun to hate anything that has vanilla in it . it was that nasty. thats one reason why i m not liking this deal . i wish this on whey isolate came in chocolate flavor. its a personal preference you would have to try the flavor out yourself maybe its just me who doesnt likes vanilla whey.

i am currently using isopure dutch chocolate isolate whey and sometimes on double rich chocolate.

I bought a tub and it tastes great. I usually buy chocolate protein powder but gave vanilla a try. I had some left over chocolate flavored Muscle Milk so I mixed half a scoop with the ON Isolate and it tastes great.

I tried to find this particular protein on ON's website to see where it ranks and couldn't find any info on it. I have a feeling this particular protein isolate was relabeled just for Costco. (I.E. Samsung TV's, Alcohol, etc)

Thanks. Repped.

So Gold Standard Whey is this: http://www.optimumnutrition.com/p...fcb4332d7b 24G protein per serving, faster digestion.

Performance Whey is this: http://www.optimumnutrition.com/p...p-279.html 22G protein per serving, slower digestion than Gold.

This CostCo Performance Whey has 30G protein per serving, similar to Platinum Ultra Whey, but called "Performance"... very interesting. Would like to understand where it sits within the ON protein hierarchy.
imho, sits between gold and platinum.

platinum claims hydrolyzed whey isolate. the costco one just states is 'whey isolate'. Also no claims of BCAA on the costco one, all over BCAA on the platinum.

You could, but you'd get too fat. That's the point of the protein supplements, to get the recommended protein intake without the extra carbs / fat.

Thanks, great info. Will have to take BCAAs separately.

I also hate the vanilla wheys. I have to make them into a smoothie to drink it, but can drink choc. whey with just water and it's ok. I'd really like to try this as I'm just about out of my current protein but afraid it will be awful. Of course, Costco is the best for returns so I just may have to try it. I've been wanting to try ON.

I didn't realize that boneless skinless chicken breast had that much of carbs/fat. Nor did certain fish. Eat more food?

Just bought a tub. Don't usually like vanilla flavored shakes but I figure what the heck.
